WrestleMania 38 was full of emotions and twists, as well as having hosted the return of Cody Rhodes after a full six years of absence. 'The American Nightmare' appeared in the most important event on the WWE calendar and took away the satisfaction of beating a champion of the caliber of Seth Rollins.
The feud between the two continued in the following weeks and at WrestleMania Backlash we will see a new chapter in their rivalry. So far, WWE has confirmed six pay-per-view matches that will take place on May 8 in Providence.
Charlotte Flair will defend the SmackDown title against Ronda Rousey, while Bloodline will have to contend with Drew McIntyre and RK-Bro. AJ Styles will once again challenge the Hall of Famer Edge in a singles match that promises to be spectacular.
Omos will clash with Bobby Lashley, not forgetting the challenge between Happy Corbin and Madcap Moss. In the latest edition of the 'Hall of Fame' podcast, Booker T said that Seth Rollins risks losing a large part of his credibility if he were to emerge defeated from the battle with Rhodes.
What's next for Seth Rollins?
"Seth Rollins may also lose to Cody Rhodes again at WrestleMania Backlash, but you have to pay attention to how he loses," Booker T explained. “Seth Rollins is a wrestler who has always enjoyed some status and I don't think WWE wants to ruin his character.
Further defeat would not be a problem for him unless he is humiliated. If the modalities of the defeat are not the right ones, Seth could lose some credibility. WWE has to be very careful” - added the two-time Hall of Famer.
Booker T also spoke of the rumors concerning Bret Hart: “Just a few months ago, Hart was approached with great insistence to All Elite Wrestling. His arrival in Tony Khan's company seemed like a done deal. Then something we don't know must have happened.
All speculation about Bret in AEW has abruptly stopped and there has been talk of his imminent return to WWE. It is not clear where the truth lies." On the latest edition of Sportskeeda's The Bro Show, WWE Hall of Famer DDP opened up about The Architect's current booking.
The veteran seems hopeful and believes that WWE has a big payoff planned for Seth Rollins at 'Mania. "You know they are not doing this with him all the way through this, for him not to come back strong. The guy's too good.
Like, let him be himself 'cause the cat can go. He can work his a** off. Whatever happens, who knows who he's working with. Whatever it is, it's leading to something."
