The ongoing rivalry between the Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears has become legendary in NFL circles, with players and even team owners frequently taking playful jabs at their opponents. Despite his association with WWE rather than the NFL, Seth Rollins has cemented his status as a lifelong critic of the Packers.
Even with Aaron Rodgers no longer part of the Packers roster after his move to the New York Jets this offseason, Rollins hasn’t let go of his animosity towards the former Packers player.
Seth Rollins voices desire to hit Aaron Rodgers
Seth Rollins didn’t hold back when asked which professional athlete he would choose to curb stomp, expressing his desire to go after Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Speaking with Sports Illustrated at Radio Row in Las Vegas, Rollins didn’t hesitate to name Rodgers as his target.
“It’s got to be Aaron Rodgers, man. By the end of it, he was just making light of it because it was so easy for him. I’d love to put a boot in the back of his head. That’d be great.”
This isn’t the first time Rollins has publicly expressed his disdain for Rodgers. During an appearance on ESPN’s First Take, Rollins listed Rodgers as one of the top five heels in sports. Nevertheless, he even went as far as to convey his anger on Rodgers, describing his face as the most “punchable” in the NFL, per Fightful.
So, what’s behind Rollins’ beef with the reigning NFL MVP?
The WWE star’s choice stems from Rodgers’ history of taunting Chicago Bears fans throughout his tenure with the Green Bay Packers. One notable incident occurred in 2021, when Rodgers famously shouted “I still own you” after the Packers defeated the Bears.
Meanwhile, A-rod isn’t the only one getting in on the trash talk. His former teammate David Bakhtiari has also taken jabs at Bears fans during their win over the Bears, amid his sly jab at the NFL’s turf space.
Which NFL team does Seth Rollins support?
Seth Rollins wears his football allegiances proudly on his sleeve, proudly supporting the Chicago Bears. Hailing from lowa, Rollins has been a lifelong fan of the Bears, which naturally pits him against their arch-rivals, the Packers.
Regardless of the Bears’ difficulties on the field, Rollins continues to show unwavering support for the team. Therefore, following a series of early season losses, Rollins turned to social media to vent his frustration, expressing his disdain for football after every defeat.
It’s clear that the rivalry runs deep for Rollins, who has endured years of back-and-forth between the Bears and the Packers.
During the recent interview at Radio Row in Las Vegas, he didn’t hold back when discussing his feelings toward the Packers.
“I’m a Bears fan—I had to deal with that for years and years and years,” he said.
With his passion for the game and his team, there’s no doubt that Rollins will be there every step of the way, ready to defend the Bears against their fiercest rivals, the Packers.
