Seth Freaking Rollins!. He’s really freaking good. Did you know that he took the WWE World Heavyweight Title from Brock Lesnar? Or that he’s the only man to cash in a Money in the Bank contract in the main event of WrestleMania? Or that he’s the only human being to ever hold the WWE World Heavyweight and United States Championships simultaneously? If you don’t, worry not: He’ll tell you soon enough. And if you somehow manage to tune out his (justified) boasts, it won’t be long until this hybrid athlete’s skills in the ring turn you into a believer. A veteran of the independent scene who’s more ninja than wrestler, Rollins set up shop as one of WWE’s on-the-spot history makers from the second he walked in the door. From his reign as the first-ever NXT Champion to his vaunted time as the “Architect” of The Shield, Rollins’ first two years in WWE were a master class of evolution. Coincidentally enough, that’s the name of one of the factions he and his fellow Hounds of Justice managed to upend in their near-spotless two-year run throughout WWE’s ranks. He’s even better flying solo, racking up accolades faster than WWE can produce them. Within 15 months of The Shield’s breakup, Rollins had won a Money in the Bank contract and converted it into the WWE World Heavyweight Title and added John Cena’s U.S. Title to his trophy case. Is it even possible to hold this ascendant athlete down? If you’re lucky, but only for the short-term. As he’s fond of saying, Seth Rollins is the future, and the future can’t be stopped.
"I think Seth Rollins is a perennial champion for the next decade. I think in the same way that John Cena and Randy Orton are multi, multi-time champions from 2005 on, I think that is now Seth Rollins' position."

The King has been slain, and “The Man” is free once again.
Seth Freakin’ Rollins redesigned his outlook and rebuilt his pride at WrestleMania, defeating his former mentor Triple H in a Non-Sanctioned Match that finally allowed The Architect to free himself of The Game’s influence once and for all.
Rollins’ mission was clear from the start. After The King of Kings entered on a chopper — with Stephanie McMahon on the back and a full police escort — Rollins carried a torch to the ring, symbolic of his oft-stated promise to burn his opponent to the ground. From there, he immediately made good on the leeway The Game’s Hold Harmless Agreement afforded him, driving Triple H out of the ring and over the barricade.
Triple H responded in kind, taking advantage of a step-slower-than-usual Rollins to DDT him on top of a commentary table before smashing a steel chair into his injured knee. Rollins managed to grind his way to a running buckle bomb that took all the wind out of The Game’s sails and led to a strong offensive run, but the question still lingered as to whether Rollins would irreparably damage his own knee in his efforts to defeat The King of Kings.
Rollins managed to keep The Game at bay when tables and chairs came into the equation, but it was the interference of Stephanie McMahon that almost doomed The Architect — twice. Stephanie first tripped Rollins off the turnbuckle and allowed The Game to trap him in a pair of reverse Figure-Four Leglocks. Later, she wrenched Triple H’s sledgehammer out of Rollins’ hands, leading The Architect into a Pedigree that nearly sealed his fate.
At this point, The Game began to show as much wear and tear as his foe. A thwarted second-rope Pedigree left Triple H incapacitated long enough for Rollins to hit a Phoenix Splash that, again, nearly left him unable to walk despite the damage it inflicted. The match quickly devolved from there into a Pedigree-off, with Triple H going low to escape the maneuver. Once again, Stephanie interfered by holding Rollins on the apron. This time, though, Rollins was ready. He dodged Triple H’s cheap shot, superkicked him into Stephanie, who crashed through a table, and finally executed the Pedigree that slayed The King of Kings and cemented his emancipation.
Now that Rollins finds himself walking his own path, truly, for the first time in his career, all that’s left to do is rebuild himself in whatever image he sees fit. What will his first move be?
The stakes could not have been higher. The fierce competitors of Raw and SmackDown LIVE would battle until all of the other team’s opponents had been pinned, disqualified, counted out or forced to submit. And so it was no wonder that the tension had reached a fever pitch as WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens, United States Champion Roman Reigns, Chris Jericho, Braun Strowman and Seth Rollins represented Raw against WWE World Champion AJ Styles, Dean Ambrose, Bray Wyatt, Randy Orton and SmackDown LIVE Commissioner Shane McMahon, with Team Blue’s official “mascot,” James Ellsworth, watching on.
The showdown began with both teams frequently tagging in and out, attempting to find a weak link in the opposition’s collective armor. Eventually, Team Raw took charge and closed off Shane McMahon from his squad, then proceeded to unleash enormous abuse on the SmackDown LIVE Commissioner. Dean Ambrose soon managed to relieve him, but a cheap shot on The Lunatic Fringe ignited an all-out brawl both inside and outside the ring. Shockingly, the melee culminated in SmackDown LIVE teammates Styles and Ambrose to start fighting each other. When The Phenomenal One blasted The Lunatic Fringe from behind, he opened the door for Raw’s Strowman to eliminate Ambrose.
At that point, Strowman began to single-handedly decimate Team SmackDown LIVE, which led to an even more interesting staredown against his former leader, Bray Wyatt. The abominable Strowman took down Wyatt, his own teammate Jericho and anyone else who got in his way.
Orton would hit Strowman with an RKO outta nowhere onto the announce table, with a battle-weary Shane-O-Mac adding an earth-shattering Flying Elbow off the top of the ring post. Though Shane would have to be carried back into the ring to avoid being counted out, Strowman was prevented from doing likewise, thanks to Team Blue’s mascot, Ellsworth, who emerged from under the ring to hold the Raw brute’s leg. As a result of being counted out, an irate Strowman stalked Ellsworth up the ramp, then hurled him off the stage and through a table.
Back in the ring, Shane once again endured a great deal of punishment at the hands of his Raw opponents, yet he refused to give in. Soon, Styles tagged back into the action and began to mix it up with Jericho. However, when Styles knocked Owens off the ring apron, The Prizefighter opted to blast him with Jericho’s infamous List and got himself disqualified. As a panicked Jericho attempted to pick up the pieces of his disheveled pages, Orton hit him with an RKO and sent the six-time World Champion following his best friend to the back.
The action continued to intensify as only Reigns and Rollins remained to battle Wyatt, Orton, Styles and McMahon. Yet, when Shane-O-Mac tried to go Coast-to-Coast, Reigns caught him with a midair Spear so devastating, the referee ruled Shane unable to continue. While officials helped the SmackDown LIVE Commissioner to the back, order completely broke down once more as Ambrose suddenly re-emerging from nowhere and unleashed an assault of pure retribution on “The Champ that Runs the Camp.” When security tried to regain order, Reigns and Rollins came to Ambrose’s aid, and the former Shield brothers temporarily reunited to deliver a Triple Powerbomb on Styles. Rollins then rolled the war-torn WWE World Champion into the ring and pinned him, and like that, the match was down to two men on each side.
Those numbers didn’t last long, though. As Rollins and Reigns turned their attention to Orton and Wyatt, Luke Harper suddenly emerged and gave The Wyatts a brief edge. Reigns and Rollins continued to battle tough, yet as The Architect climbed up top to finish a staggered Eater of Worlds, he instead ate a midair RKO from The Viper that left him unable to kick out of a cover by Wyatt.
Reigns was left face both Orton and Wyatt all by himself, with Harper still lurking in the wings. Nevertheless, The Big Dog was able to overcome the odds, and in fact was primed to take down Wyatt with a Spear. However, at the last second, Orton pushed the Wyatt patriarch out of the way, taking the full force of the Spear himself – and in turn, allowing The Eater of Worlds to hit Reigns with Sister Abigail for the huge victory.
The Kevin Owens Show has survived its one-off episode in Hell to roll on for at least another night, as the WWE Universal Championship both arrived and left Boston in the clutches of The Prizefighter, while Seth Rollins was left empty-handed yet again. Though, to be entirely fair, the third-act twist wasn’t entirely due to the merits of The KO Show’s namesake, as a most unexpected guest star crashed the Cell.
In case you couldn’t guess, that was Chris Jericho, who made his presence felt after Rollins gritted and grounded his way into position to win the match. That in and of itself was a miracle after KO snuffed out Rollins’ early showing by targeting The Architect’s back, ripping off Rollins’ Kinesio tape before savaging him all across the cage. Rollins was able to keep himself in the fight, but when Owens accidentally blasted one of the officials in the face with a fire extinguisher, Jericho took advantage of the briefly open Cell door to lock himself inside and pocket the key.
Rollins quickly dispatched Jericho by sending him crashing into the Cell wall, but the mere presence of The Ayatollah of Rock ’n’ Rolla left him at an insurmountable disadvantage. Even though he was able to power through his brutalized back to powerbomb Owens through a pair of tables, he couldn’t stop Jericho from hauling the ref away before the pinfall could be counted. And, although he was able to briefly chase Jericho down, he wasn’t able to stop Jeri-KO from ultimately uniting and bringing two steel chairs into the match. And once Owens powerbombed him through those two chairs with Jericho watching on, Rollins wasn’t able to do much of anything.
Rollins never lost the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, but was forced to give it up due to a devastating knee injury that kept him out of action for more than six months. In front of a raucous, sold-out crowd at the Prudential Center, The Architect sent a clear message to the reigning champion: Seth Rollins is redesigned, rebuilt and ready to reclaim the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
The shocking return of the former champion was the cap on a brutal evening surrounding WWE’s top prize.
A battle-worn Reigns was able to clutch his title, but only for a moment, until The Architect made his return. After planting Reigns into the mat, Rollins took the title he never lost and held it high, letting the world know that he’s back, and nothing will stop him from getting the WWE World Heavyweight Championship back.
