The best moments in pro wrestling is when you can't tell whether what you're seeing is scripted or not. One of the most infamous moments in WWE programming was when CM Punk dropped his iconic “Pipebomb” promo. Fans did not know whether Punk was going off-script for that promo or not, which made it super compelling.
Seth Rollins has seemingly taken this advice to its limit in terms of his use of Twitter. The WWE Superstar uses his Twitter account to continue his character work, but he occasionally breaks character on that app. As a result, fans can't quite tell at times whether Rollins is still playing a character in his tweets.
A perfect example of this happened a day after the ESPYs awards show. Cody Rhodes (Seth Rollins' on-camera rival) won the best WWE moment award for his Wrestlemania return. After the festivities was over, Rollins seemingly called out the company AND ESPN for discrediting him.
Truly…screw this guy. Screw ESPN. Screw WWE. And screw you scumbags out there who continue to overlook me, discredit me, and undermine me.
None of this exists without me.
For those of you who have my back, I hear you singing my song every night. https://t.co/F1EiUW27D6

Rollins' Twitter rant makes sense in kayfabe terms: the ex-Shield member has expressed his disdain for Rhodes multiple times on camera. It's logical for Rollins to be salty at Rhodes winning an award at his expense.
What makes this tweet intriguing, though, is Rollins' past comments about his position in the WWE. Rollins has long been vocal about not being content at times with how he was positioned in the company. He once said he bonded with now-AEW star Miro (FKA Rusev) over these complaints. It's fair to wonder whether Rollins added a bit of truth to his strongly-worded tweet.
Either way, the ESPYs are likely the last thing on Rollins' mind right now. His current focus is his SummerSlam match against fellow WWE competitor Riddle.
