It’s official, Seth Rollins is headed to WrestleMania. After winning the 30-Man Royal Rumble match this Sunday night in Phoenix, the Kingslayer showed up to work on WWE RAW the next night and ran straight into the path of the Beast Incarnate.
Rollins originally wanted to take some time to think about which title he plans on challenging for at this year’s WrestleMania, but a surprise visit from Triple H changed his plans. The Game noted that the wheels of WWE are constantly turning and the powers-that-be need to start moving on this year’s Showcase of the Immortals immediately — meaning Rollins needed to decide his fate right by the end of the show.
Interestingly, WWE Champion Daniel Bryan and his new follower Erick Rowan were backstage at RAW and were actually on their way to the ring to await the Kingslayer’s decision. However, before the two could even make their way out, Rollins was brutally assaulted by Universal Champion Brock Lesnar, who dropped him with numerous suplexes and F5s.
WWE.com has officially confirmed that Seth Rollins will challenge Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship on Sunday, April 7th on the grandest stage of them all, WrestleMania 35.
