Seth Rollins faced Roman Reigns in a Universal Championship match at the Royal Rumble last Saturday. The challenge ended with the victory of the former by disqualification after a long series of twists. On the sidelines of the meeting, the 'Tribal Chief' ferociously attacked his former friend, with a brutality that few expected.
Rollins was a special guest on the show hosted by Kevin Owens this week on Raw. Seth was joined by Brock Lesnar in the fight that will award the WWE Championship to Elimination Chamber. During his WWE career, the 35-year-old from Buffalo has held the WWE title twice, once the NXT Championship and twice the Universal Championship.
He also won the 2014 edition of the Money in the Bank and the 2019 edition of the Royal Rumble match. During the latest edition of 'Legion of RAW' on Sportskeeda, former WWE and WCW writer Vince Russo criticized the way the company is managing Seth Rollins.
Vince Russo on Seth Rollins
"Right now, it's not clear whether Seth Rollins is playing a babyface or a heel" - confided Russo. “WWE is not doing anything to enhance the character of Seth, rather it seems to want to take away any credibility in the eyes of the public.
If I were in Rollins, I'd hurry to ask for a meeting with Vince McMahon in his office” - he added to the dose. Vince spoke at length about the company's inability to forge new global icons: “Who have legends like The Undertaker and John Cena passed the baton to? These guys did not help the young talents out of the shadows.
They just disappeared. Taker retired due to age, while Cena has now become one of Hollywood's most popular actors. When Vince McMahon needs big stars for an event in Saudi Arabia or WrestleMania, he offers them big bucks and they get back into the ring.
Often and willingly, they steal a full-time wrestler's place in the show's main event. The same concept is also applicable to The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin." The Royal Rumble premium live event show started with an incredible Universal Title match between Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns.
The pair threw everything they had at each other, and The Head of The Table was taken to his limit by his bitter enemy. Rollins was ultimately unable to capture the title, though he won the bout. In the closing moments, Reigns refused to let go of a guillotine choke, so the referee was forced to disqualify the reigning Universal Champion.
