Ric Flair thinks Seth Rollins has benefited greatly from the latest development in his WWE rivalry with Cody Rhodes.
Rollins suffered his third straight loss to Rhodes inside Hell in a Cell on Sunday. The story of the match revolved around The American Nightmare’s torn pectoral tendon, which is due to require surgery this week.
Speaking on his To Be The Man podcast, Flair discussed Rollins’ attack on injured Rhodes on the latest episode of RAW.
“He [Rhodes] made Seth Rollins last night more than Seth since he’s been in the business,” Flair said. “It didn’t hurt Seth at all to lose. On this Monday night, they had to have a plan. He could be out for three or four months with that. [8:03-8:24]
Rollins’ feud with Rhodes seemed to be over when the two men shook hands during an in-ring segment on RAW. Moments later, the former Shield member returned from the sidelines to attack his rival from behind with a hammer.
Ric Flair’s take on Seth Rollins’ losing streak
Cody Rhodes defeated Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 38 and WrestleMania Backlash before his final win at Hell in a Cell.
WWE rarely books someone of Rollins’ caliber to lose three televised matches in a row against the same opponent. However, Ric Flair doesn’t think the losses will affect the RAW star’s credibility.
“I think it was awesome of Seth to put it on like he did both times,” Flair continued. “Doing what they did last night, Seth is cool, he put a lot of heat on himself last night. The most I’ve ever seen him put on himself, and it’s all because from Cody. [8:37-8:57]
Rhodes’ Hell in a Cell exhibit has received rave reviews online. WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley was particularly impressed with the former AEW executive, describing his performance as “one of the most daring of all time”.
