Johnny Manziel is just one of those people that you can only love or hate. There is really no in-between with this guy. I personally loved the guy’s athletic ability, but I hate the way things have panned out for him.
Apparently, WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins just hates the guy altogether.
WWE Raw broadcasted from Cleveland, Ohio a few weeks ago and, as is normal, a few members of the Cleveland sports teams made appearances at the show. Manziel was there with a few of his Browns teammates.
Rollins, who is what they call in the business a “heel” or bad guy, came down to the ring and did his whole shtick with the crowd. The Cleveland Cavaliers had just lost in the NBA Finals, so you know he wasn’t going to pass ragging on them up. He also ragged on the Browns and their history of bad football.
That is when the camera cut to Manziel and he appeared on the big screen. This prompted Rollins to go on a rant and call Manziel “Johnny Idiot Face.”
According to Bleacher Report, Rollins recently appeared on The Buzz with Jimmy Traina podcast and he talked about the exchange with him and Manziel. Apparently, Rollins has a legitimate beef with Manziel saying that he was “born with one of those faces that you just want to punch.”
Here is the full quote from Rollins:
He definitely did not know it was coming, and it was certainly something that was off the top of my head. Johnny was born with one of those faces that you just want to punch. You just wanna put your fist in his face. There’s nothing you can do about it. Maybe it’s the way he comes off. I don’t know. It just came to me when I saw him sitting there and saw him taking the whole thing in. And I was just like, ‘Wow.’ It just seemed right. So [I] let it rip.
You can listen to the full thirty minute podcast below.
Maybe if Rollins survives his match with Brock Lesnar this Sunday at Battleground, fans will get the chance to see these two go at it in the ring. That is probably a stretch, but hell, we saw Shaq and Big Show go toe-to-toe.
