At WrestleMania 35, Seth Rollins became the new WWE Universal Champion by defeating Brock Lesnar in the first match of the night. Seth could become the symbol of the company in the coming years. Rollins went on to become a two-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion, two-timeIntercontinental Champion, a one-time United States Champion, a four-time WWE/Raw Tag Team Champion (with Reigns, Ambrose, and Jason Jordan), the 2014 Money in the Bank winner, the 2015 Superstar of the Year and the 2019 Men's Royal Rumble winner.
In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Seth reflects on who the best in the world is: “Best in the world? Who knows what that means. But there are only a handful of guys who understand what we do, and doing at my level—as often as often I do—there is probably nobody else.
That’s my opinion. I’ve gone out and had great matches the past couple years that people have taken it for granted, to the point where a great match on Monday night doesn’t even get a sneeze because I do it so regularly.
I just don’t think there’s anybody else out there that has as many incredible matches, with different opponents and different styles, as I do. I don’t think anybody’s resume can speak as loud as mine can, so I have no problem calling myself the best performer in the entire world”.
