Seth Rollins’ character was pretty pleased with himself for breaking John Cena’s nose in 2015, but the real Rollins wasn’t too happy after the incident.
On the July 27, 2015 episode of RAW, Rollins broke Cena’s nose during a match and accidentally kneed him in the face.
time to talk The Game Mornings on CBS Atlanta 92.8The Visionary spoke about his reaction on stage after the accident.
“I apologized a lot. John Cena and I have wrestled a million times and every once in a while you get a clunker in there. But it was just, for some reason, I just made real contact with his face and dressed it up really badly.”
Rollins would dethrone then-US Champion Cena at that year’s SummerSlam, becoming the first (and so far only) man to hold the US Title and the WWE Championship at the same time.
Cena would win the US title a month later at Night of Champions, where Rollins would injure Sting later in the show during their WWE Championship match.
