Seth Rollins has always been an interesting figure in the wrestling scene, capturing attention from his first appearance on the big stage.

Rollins has been a part of this company for years and has consistently defended WWE, regardless of the pressures and attacks on the wrestling company. Rollins views WWE as a family where everyone must stand behind each other and provide support.

Rollins addressed his "unprofessional behavior" regarding CM Punk and the Survivor Series. However, he justified his actions by stating that he prioritizes the company above all else, unlike CM Punk and other individuals who primarily focus on their interests before considering the company's.

“I don’t think I’ve ever been more unprofessional in my entire life than when CM Punk came back at Survivor Series. I was not feeling good. It’s the same thing with The Rock. It was the same thing with Cody Rhodes. I love WWE. We’re all family. I’m talking about everybody in the back, everybody that I’ve shared a ring with, everybody in production, creative, all the way from Triple H to every single person out here. We’re all family. We’re all in this together and when you have family, you protect your family. You protect your family from outsiders who have only self interest in mind."- he said, as quoted by!

However, Rollins highlights Punk's departure from WWE a decade ago and his following attempts to criticize and undermine the company.

When it comes to CM Punk, we don't need to spend many words. Fans of WWE, as well as wrestling in general, are well acquainted with CM Punk and his style of behavior. Some don't appreciate the role CM Punk plays on the big stage, while others respect his character and contributions, believing that such personalities are essential for the wrestling scene. People like CM Punk are precisely the reason why we love wrestling, some believe.

Rollins emphasizes his role as a protector of his "family" within WWE and portrays Punk's actions as attempts to tear down everything he holds. In Seth's statements, we can feel the depth of love and passion he truly feels for wrestling, considering anyone who has ever said anything negative about WWE as an enemy. He is always ready to stand behind the company and defend its interests.

Rollins' reaction at Survivor Series reflects his emotional response to what he perceives as a betrayal, describing it as a raw and genuine reaction. He stresses that his response may be viewed as unprofessional but stands by his stance, stating his strong dislike for CM Punk and his persistent loyalty to WWE.
