Randy Cordova of AzCentral.com got a chance to chat Seth Rollins about his career, his hairstyle trademark and more. Check out the highlights below:

AC: Do you have a lot of control over your persona?

SR: I haven’t run into too many hiccups as far as creative control. The guys here are really talented and they do amazing, original programming 52 weeks a year. It’s really unprecedented as far as live television is concerned.

AC: So how much of Seth Rollins is you?

SR: It’s a lot of me with a little bit of WWE added in. They’re expert at creating brands and marketing brands. We brainstormed and developed and turned Seth Rollins into the kind of cool persona I really enjoy being a part of. You have to have some of you in that.

AC: What about the hair? Is that you or part of the persona?

SR: That’s me for the most part. There are a lot of guys with long dark hair. I wanted to stand out with my looks. My wrestling stood out, but I’m 225 pounds. In WWE terms, that’s middle of the road. My wrestling put me on the map, and then I wanted to have a unique look.

AC: And now fans are copying it.

SR: Yeah, dude, that’s crazy. I see people on Twitter Rollinizing their hair. That’s awesome. You have to draw the line somewhere, but that’s pretty cool. That shows you how dedicated and obsessed they are.

David Onda of xfinity.comcast.net caught up with Mr. Money In The Bank, Seth Rollins to talk about his rise to fame, the night he turned on The Shield, what he’s learned from The Authority and when he plans on cashing in his briefcase.

Check out the highlights below:

Onda: Take me back to the night you turned on Reigns and Ambrose. As you were standing in the ring, waiting to blindside them with a chair attack, were there nerves thinking about how things would change going forward?

Rollins: Yeah, it was certainly a nerve-wracking experience, just because change is always difficult, no matter what the scenario is. Watching the replays of it over the past couple of months – and the internet memes, as well – it’s a surreal type of moment where you’ve got one chance to capitalize on everything you’ve worked for for two years. If it doesn’t go as well as you had envisioned it, you don’t get another shot, so you’ve got knock it out of the park. Swing for the fences, if you will. Pun intended.

Onda: You’re no stranger to being the bad guy, to being disliked by wrestling fans. In a way, was this getting back into your comfort zone?

Rollins: I don’t know if that was really ever a thought. It was mostly just a way to separate myself from the other two, separate myself from the pack and really try to stand out and be the guy that everyone is gonna be talking about. That was the goal the whole time, and I think we accomplished that goal. Whether or not I’m more comfortable in this role is yet to be determined, but like you said, I’m definitely no stranger to this position, so we’ll see how it all comes together.

Onda: The ring gear, at least, must be more comfortable.

Rollins: Yeah, it’s a little bit more traditional. You get used to being in the SWAT gear. A year or two in, you just start to get comfortable with something, and then to switch it up is a little weird; but I definitely like my current Space Age suit right now a lot better.

Onda: Do you have to take your “Money in the Bank” briefcase on flights as carry-on luggage?

Rollins: Yes. Yes I do. It certainly gets a couple stray looks from the housewives and grandparents. It keeps people paying attention to you when you’re in the airport.

Onda: As a member of The Authority, you are in a position that puts you in the company of WWE’s greatest minds and veterans. What do you learn from them on a weekly basis?

Rollins: You learn how to be successful and how to stay successful. Stephanie is a McMahon. She knows all of the ruthless and cunning things that must be done to stay at the very top. And she’s a woman. And to be a woman at the top is not always the easiest thing, and some may say it’s more difficult than to be a man on top. She’s been able to excel in that role. Triple H – “The Game,” the “Cerebral Assassin” – that’s a nickname [announcer] Jim Ross gave to him based on the way he operates in the ring, but I think it has as much to do with the way he operates outside of the ring and how he conducts himself. Learning those things – how to carry yourself, how to be the top guy, the man in our industry – those are the things I’ve picked up from Triple H and Randy Orton. Those are the guys who have been to the mountain top and know what it’s like to hold that spot. That’s where I wanna be, and there’s no better person or people to learn from.

Onda: It takes a special kind of match to get the other superstars in back to gather around the monitors and watch. Is Cena vs. Lesnar one of those matches?

Rollins: I think Ambrose vs. Rollins is one of those matches.

Onda: If Cena wins this match, it’s going to come at a heavy physical price. How closely will Seth Rollins, with briefcase in hand, be watching the final moments of the main event?

Rollins: In an ideal world, I walk out of “SummerSlam” with that championship. That’s not guaranteeing anything, that’s not making any promises. It’s just a possibility, because it really could go either way. We’ll see what my condition is after this war with Ambrose. We’ll see what the champion’s condition is after the Cena-Lesnar match. That’s the unpredictability of the “Money in the Bank” briefcase. It could be cashed in at any time, and I think that’s the fun of it.

Onda: Are you crazy enough to cash in on Brock Lesnar?

Rollins: I don’t think Brock’s gonna come out of that match looking too pretty either. I didn’t say, “Let’s see the condition of Cena.” I said, “Let’s see the condition of the champion.” Whoever the champion is at “SummerSlam” after that main event, they better watch out, because if the time is right and it feels good… you never know.

Full Interview:: WWE Superstar Seth Rollins: ‘SummerSlam’ Showdown Will Be a War

Calling all potential Aerialists, Architects and Money in the Bank Ladder Match winners: Seth Rollins wants to recruit you. The former WWE Tag Team Champion and current Money in the Bank contract holder is starting his most ambitious venture yet: The Black & The Brave Wrestling Academy, which looks to train potential independent (and WWE) competitors in a wholly unexpected way. Just a few weeks ahead of the school’s first training session, Rollins sat down with WWE.com to discuss his academy’s origins, its relationship with the WWE Performance Center and the one piece of advice any recruit must heed to succeed.

WWE.COM: When did you first hear about Kenta?

SETH ROLLINS: I learned about Kenta in 2004 or 2005 when I first started breaking into the wrestling business. I caught some tapes of him in Japan wrestling for Noah against Marufuji and thought to myself, “That guy kicks harder than any human being I’ve ever seen in my life and I don’t know how anyone is getting up.”

WWE.COM: What are some of your favorite Kenta matches?

ROLLINS: Any match against Marufuji. They had an extended rivalry. Also, Kenta vs. Daniel Bryan in Ring of Honor [at Glory by Honor V in 2006] is one of my favorite matches of all time.

WWE.COM: What was the first time you met him, and what was it like to meet him?

ROLLINS: I met him at a Ring of Honor show we were both on. Very intimidating, but in the end, just a quiet, soft-spoken, very humble Japanese fellow.

WWE.COM: What does the signing of Kenta mean for the landscape of WWE and the roster in general to have an established Japanese star?

ROLLINS: It’s been quite some time since WWE has really went out of its way to sign an established Japanese star. If you look at his resume, not just in Japan, but worldwide, it’s a coup for the company. He’s a legitimate, bona fide global wrestling phenomenon, and I’m looking forward to having him on the roster.

WWE.COM: Who would you like to see Kenta wrestle in WWE?

ROLLINS: I wouldn’t mind locking horns with him one more time. I would love to see him get in the ring with Cesaro. I think he would have a really interesting match with Sheamus. I would love to see how someone like Randy Orton might combat him. I think it’ll be really interesting just to see how he gels with the locker room.

WWE.COM: Do you think he’ll need to adapt his style in WWE?

ROLLINS: Anybody that’s ever come here has had to adapt their style in some way, shape or form. You’ve gotta find a medium between what brought you to the dance and what’s gonna get you to the top. I hope Kenta is able to — and I’m sure he will be able to — find that in-between. Overall, I hope he doesn’t change too much. He’s super talented, and I just want to see him succeed and do well.

WWE.COM: What is Kenta’s potential to succeed here?

ROLLINS: The sky’s the limit for him. He’s got unlimited potential based on his skill set. He’s not the prototypical WWE Superstar. He’s not Hulk Hogan and he’s not John Cena, but he has a certain charisma about him that’s completely different than what anybody else has in the company right now. He’s got an opportunity to bring a different style to the game in an era when MMA is very prominent. Guys his size who hit as hard as he does are very popular and can connect with an audience.

WWE.COM: You teamed with him in a match in 2009. What was that like?

ROLLINS: Teaming with Kenta was awesome, just because that meant I didn’t have to get kicked by him. He had a rivalry with [Katsuhiko] Nakajima and I had a rivalry with Austin Aries, so we were paired together by circumstance. We gelled very well as a tag team and won that match, due in no small part to how awesome he was and how willing he was to incorporate my style into his. We had a really good time.

WWE.COM: What was it like to wrestle him later that year in Chicago?

ROLLINS: There was no rivalry going into that match. It was just one of those dream matches that Ring of Honor was very famous for putting on. His style was completely unlike anything I was used to. His speed and ferocity were unmatched at that point in his career. I just wanted to do my best to survive and I came out of it relatively unscathed. I had lots of bumps and bruises, had the wind knocked out of me on multiple occasions, but I survived, and I thought we had a pretty good match. I had a helluva time, but it was one of those deals where when you’re in the ring with him, it’s more about survival than it is about winning.

WWE.COM: Do you prefer teaming with him or competing against him?

ROLLINS: I’m a glutton for punishment. I liked wrestling against him rather than teaming with him. I like anybody that can bring out the best in me or showcase a side of me that I’m unfamiliar with, and he definitely did that. He took me to a place mentally and physically where I had never been before. I had to take a lot of blows. Not that I’m not used to that, but I’m telling you, his kicks are lethal. I enjoyed wrestling him before and I’m hoping to do it again.
