 Seth Rollins Tipped to Topple Roman Reigns in WWE

The professional wrestling world has been buzzing with speculation, and the unanimous opinion seems that Seth Rollins could dethrone Roman Reigns—a simple statement, yet with profound implications given their shared history and evolving storylines.

The proof supporting this notion is not just present but quite compelling. Rollins has emerged as one of the most organically appreciated wrestlers today. Despite the fanfare surrounding LA Knight's special promos or CM Punk's sensational comeback, Rollins steals the limelight.

His compelling performance in the recent NXT episode drew 773,000 viewers, marking the highest viewership in two years and top-ranked within the 18-49 demographic. His title defense against Bronn Breakker also flirted with the million-viewer threshold.

While Knight and Punk have shown potential, their returns might experience diminishing returns over time. On the other hand, Rollins has consistently boosted NXT's popularity, transforming it from a distant third to a top-tier brand.

His impact on NXT's records further strengthens the argument for his potential to dethrone Reigns.

Rollins' Resilience and Reigns' Dominance

Having overcome past adversities, Rollins has displayed remarkable resilience. Following his feud with Bray Wyatt and The Fiend persona, and after an initially rocky partnership with Becky Lynch, Rollins revamped his character.

His resurgence and a renewed connection with the audience, irrespective of his heel or hero status. His accomplishments contrast sharply with Reigns, who continued to hog titles despite Rollins' deserving status. In terms of storyline, Rollins has the perfect arc to defeat Reigns.

He has a history of outsmarting Reigns, notably achieving a disqualification win at the Royal Rumble in 2022. Rollins' cunning, coupled with their intertwined history from The Shield days, makes him the ideal choice. Considering the timeline, it's plausible that Reigns will remain embroiled in a feud with the Usos, possibly introducing Solo Sikoa as a threat.

Meanwhile, Rollins could continue as a fighting champion, paving the way for a climactic showdown at WrestleMania 40. The potential victory of Rollins over Reigns would not only resonate with the fans and symbolize the triumph of perseverance, proving to the locker room and free agents that hard work pays off in WWE.

With his current trajectory, Rollins is seemingly the only choice to end Reigns' reign. In that regard, the "Architect" seems to be crafting the perfect blueprint to topple Reigns, adding another exciting chapter to one of the most thrilling rivalries the sport has ever witnessed.
