Seth Rollins is one of the top stars on Monday Night Raw, and over the past few years he’s feuded with some of the top names in the business, including the first ever WWE Undisputed Champion, Chris Jericho.

Rollins knows Jericho well, but during a recent interview with TV Insider the Kingslayer revealed that he actually met Chris Jericho years before he joined WWE, and he had nothing but good things to say about their first encounter.

“I was really bad at meeting wrestlers,” Rollins recalled of his own experiences growing up. “I lived in a small town in Iowa. We didn’t have shows very often, so I didn’t get to meet many of the guys. Chris Jericho was really cool to me when I first met him. I was a 16-year-old kid who barged in on him because I wanted to show him my backyard wrestling pictures. He was very cool about it when he had no reason to be.”

Seth Rollins reunited with his former Shield brother Dean Ambrose a few weeks ago, and they managed to capture the Raw Tag Team Titles at SummerSlam. Rollins also talked a little bit about the reaction to their reunion, and he admitted that the fans in Toronto caught him off guard.

“The first few weeks we teamed together a little bit against the Miztourage, and people were really excited about it,” he said. “But they got really pumped in Toronto a couple of weeks back. I think that caught me off guard a little bit. Gears are always turning, and you are on to the next thing, that you kind of forget how attached people can be to certain characters and stories. So, it was very cool, and a reminder how special our industry can be…Five years later, there is the nostalgic feeling. It’s crazy. This is our first reunion per se, and a unique experience for both of us.”

Sunday night Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose will defend the Raw Tag Team Titles at No Mercy which is set to air live on the WWE Network.
