Seth Rollins recalls his cashing in Money in the Bank at WrestleMania 31

Seth Rollins is one of the big ones expected at WrestleMania 35, facing Brock Lesnar in a match valid for the WWE Universal Champion. Fans hope that Rollins can stop The Beast's dominance and start a new reign. In a recent interview on the E&C's Pod of Awesomeness, Seth recalled his cashing in Money in the Bank at WrestleMania 31: “I ended up winning the Money In The Bank in May, or April, or June, or whenever that was, after the [heel] turn.

It would have to have been May, or June, or something, and then going in to WrestleMania the next year, I had that briefcase and there were no plans for me to use it and, so, I came up with one. That was my idea. I had the idea in my head almost as a, well, I mean, why the hell not? It’s never been done, and strangely, I had a little bit of foresight in the sense that I saw how the momentum with Roman [Reigns] was shifting toward going in to that WrestleMania."

Upon capturing his first WWE Championship (then known as the WWE World Heavyweight Championship), he became the first wrestler of Armenian descent to hold the title and after winning his first Intercontinental Championship, he became the 29th Triple Crown Champion and the 18th Grand Slam Champion. On January 27th, 2019, Seth Rollins became the first WWE superstar to win the Royal Rumble from the number 10 spot.
