At Money in the Bank, Seth Rollins defeated Styles to retain the championship. Rollins successfully defended the title against Corbin at Super ShowDown and Stomping Grounds in June; the latter title defence featured Lacey Evans as special guest referee.
He won with assistance of his real life girlfriend and Raw Womens Champion Becky Lynch to overcome Evans' biased refereeing. Rollins teamed up with Lynch and defeated Corbin and Evans at Extreme Rules in a Winner Takes All Mixed Tag Team match.
On the same night, Rollins lost the title to Lesnar who cashed in his Money in the Bank contract thus ending Rollins reign at 98 days. He will face Lesnar for the Universal Championship at SummerSlam after winning the Top 10 All-Star battle royal on Raw, last eliminating Randy Orton.
In a recent interview with Tampa Bay Times, Rollins commented on working with Becky Lynch: “It’s great. We spend all of our time together anyway. So might as well add the on screen stuff to it as well. She’s awesome, she’s super talented, one of the first women to main event WrestleMania beating Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair this past year.
I learn a lot from her being in the ring and watching her cut promos, she’s very inspiring as far as that’s concerned. Just from a performer’s perspective, I get a lot out being near her on screen and off screen I get a lot as well, so it works out in both places”.
