Ahead of Seth Rollins’ match against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania on Sunday, The Kingslayer spoke with WWE Now and opened up about Dean Ambrose leaving WWE.
“It breaks my heart,” admitted Rollins, h/t to Fightful for the transcription. “I get it. I understand. [WWE] can be frustrating and he’s a guy that’s been doing it nonstop for 15-17 years now. Sometimes, you just need to step away and take care of yourself. I wish him luck in whatever he wants to do. We’re still going to be friends and brothers. I’ll love him for as long as we can. He marches to the beat of his own drum. He’s a wild animal. You can’t put him in a cage or tame him. That’s not how he operates.
“I know how he feels about his creativity and when it pulls him in a different direction, that’s how he’s gotta be,” Rollins continued. “I never imagined the three of us working anywhere else or not being here. It’s gonna be weird to come into the locker room and he’s not there and knowing he’s not coming back anytime soon. It tugs on my heartstrings but I support him in whatever decision he’s gonna make.”
