Seth Rollins, newly crowned WWE World Heavyweight Champion, is already setting a high bar as the WWE's unflinching stalwart. Fresh off his victory at the Night of Champions event last month, Rollins has solemnly vowed to maintain a steady presence at live events and on WWE's flagship program, "WWE Raw." Two days after his triumphant win over AJ Styles and securing the prestigious world championship, Rollins made his dynamic presence felt on "Raw," partnering with his former rival to vanquish The Judgment Day.
Upholding his promise, Rollins has now announced his commitment to grace nearly every WWE live event and television taping in June 2023.
Rollins Announces Jam-Packed June
Taking to Twitter, the World Heavyweight Champion, with his characteristic brevity, shared "June 2023" alongside a list of 12 dates and locations for live events he intends to appear at this month.
In a testament to his dedication, not only will he be a consistent figure at "Raw" tapings, but he'll also be present at nearly every WWE house show barring two in June. He's also slated to appear on "WWE SmackDown" on June 9, to be shot in his home state of Iowa.
Rollins' staunch stance on what it means to be a world title holder is a clear counter to Roman Reigns' reign as the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion. Reigns' run, now exceeding 1,000 days, has been marked by sporadic appearances on WWE television, where he's been the face of the company's "SmackDown" brand.
In contrast, 2023 has seen Reigns partake in a scant five matches, while Rollins has stepped into the ring a staggering 37 times, including three no-disqualification matches, a street fight, an Elimination Chamber match, and a grueling journey through the WWE World Heavyweight Championship tournament.
Unsurprisingly, a sizable chunk of the WWE fandom views Rollins as the promotion's most dedicated superstar. Seth Rollins is not just raising the bar; he is the bar, setting new standards for a world champion's commitment.
