Seth Rollins secured his spot in the WWE World Heavyweight Championship tournament final after triumphing over Finn Balor on "WWE Raw." At the Night of Champions premium live event, he will now face the victor emerging from the "WWE SmackDown" side of the tournament bracket.
This Friday, two triple-threat matches will determine Rollins' opponent for the championship. AJ Styles, Edge, and Rey Mysterio will battle in one match, while United States Champion Austin Theory, Bobby Lashley, and Sheamus compete in the other.
The winners from these bouts will face each other to decide who advances to the Night of Champions.
Seth Rollins vs. Balor: Historic Rematch
The semi-final match between Rollins and Balor marked their second major clash, following their 2016 SummerSlam face-off for the inaugural Universal Champion title.
Balor emerged victorious back then but had to relinquish the title due to a shoulder injury. Their recent match referenced this past incident. Before facing Balor, Rollins had to overcome Shinsuke Nakamura and Damian Priest in a triple threat match, despite neither opponent having previously held a World Championship title in WWE.
A recent Twitter poll conducted by Wrestling Inc. revealed that most of respondents believe Rollins should become the inaugural World Heavyweight Champion. Rollins outpaced Balor, Cody Rhodes, and Brock Lesnar in popularity in the survey.
His win against Balor brings him closer to achieving this milestone and claiming the prestigious title. With anticipation building towards the Night of Champions, fans eagerly await the outcome of the "WWE SmackDown" triple threat matches.
As Rollins prepares for the showdown, the wrestling world is excited to see who will ultimately be crowned the inaugural WWE World Heavyweight Champion. Will Seth Rollins live up to the expectations and secure his place in WWE history, or will a new contender rise? The stage is set for an unforgettable night of wrestling action.
