Seth Rollins broke the mold of WWE Superstars being sad on Twitter and raised the WWE torch higher than he did during his entrance at WrestleMania 33.

Rollins, who retained the WWE Universal Championship against Baron Corbin at Stomping Grounds amid fan outrage, went on to double down on his bold claim shortly after an entertaining Triple Threat match from cruiserweights Tony Nese, Akira Tozawa and new cruiserweight champion Drew Gulak.

In response, New Japan Pro Wrestling's Will Ospreay—who has competed in multiple match of the year candidates with more than half of 2019 still to go—issued a thinly veiled objection. Unfortunately, the "little guy" would prove to be no match for a Seth Rollins clap back.

Rollins quickly turned his ire to the redundant know-it-alls within our beloved pro wrestling media. On one hand this is awesome because of how pompous and repetitive wrestling media can be in its criticism, though Rollins' vitriol was rooted in the tired and misguided notion that one should not criticize pro wrestling angles and storylines if they've never stepped inside a squared circle.

Seth Rollins may be biting off more than he can chew by defending WWE's embattled product amid a growing AEW bandwagon and New Japan Pro Wrestling gearing up for its annual tournament of attrition known as the G1 Climax. But WWE's top champion choosing to proudly stand by the company that pays him is a refreshing change of pace from the endless internal and external negativity that has plagued the promotion in recent years.

Seth Rollins is here to play the role of Dikembe Mutombo by swatting away any inkling of WWE slander, and hopefully Twitter will be better for it.

Your move, "dorks."
