Last year Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose teamed up, and for a few months they were on fire. They won the Raw Tag Team Titles, and ran the tag team division, but their momentum was halted due to an injury.
Dean Ambrose has been out of action since December of 2017, and Seth Rollins recently explained to The South China Morning Post while Ambrose’s injury was a blessing in disguise.
“Not that I would wish injury on Ambrose at all, but that was something that lit a fire underneath me. It’s definitely been a blessing in disguise for my singles career.”
Even though Dean Ambrose has spent 2018 sitting on the sidelines, it’s been a great year for Seth Rollins, and the former Intercontinental Champion noted that he feels like he’s back on top.
“Yeah, it’s been a really good year for me. Honestly, you look at my body of work from SummerSlam last year to SummerSlam this year – I really don’t think there’s anybody on the main roster, aside from an AJ Styles give or take, that can compare with what I’ve done. From winning the tag team titles, to winning the Intercontinental title at Mania, to the gauntlet match performance on Raw, to some of the matches I’ve been a part of the last six months, nobody can hold a candle to what I’ve done in the ring. I definitely feel I’m back on top for sure.”
