Seth Rollins has been on a roll in 2018. He’s the current Intercontinental Champion, and now that The Shield has reunited his brothers are back in his corner.

“Burn it down” has become Seth’s mantra ever since the 3 simple words were added to his entrance music, and he recently told Nola.com that filling in the empty space was Vince McMahon’s idea.

“Honestly, I don’t exactly know. I feel like it was partially a take on the commercial for the video game last year where I’m sort of an arsonist when it comes to burning down the artifacts of the past. Having words in the entrance was totally Vince’s idea. There was nothing in that space, a weird dead space to Vince. He thought it was a good idea to fill it with something.”

“We went through a couple of options, and that one fit the best. I chose it, and the next thing you know, it’s a huge part of my character. Thanks to Vince for having 50 years of pro wrestling knowledge in his back pocket. It’s a fun interactive thing for the audience. That many people screaming Burn it Down at WrestleMania was insanity.”

Rollins was also asked about who his favorite opponent of 2018 has been so far, and he named the first ever Universal Champion Finn Balor.

“Finn Balor is one of my favorite guys to be in the ring with. He’s a great guy and incredible performer. I don’t think he gets enough credit for how fantastic he is. We were able to have some really fun, fantastic matches on Raw and WrestleMania. Together, we made some magic and had great chemistry.”
