WrestleMania season is almost upon which means the usual bold rumors are starting to circulate regarding the potential matches which could take place on the event, this time the rumors surround Sting taking on Seth Rollins.
Seth Rollins has had a blockbuster 2014. He was the man who broke The Shield after playing a part in back-to-back victories over Evolution, he was a key member of The Authority’s dominance this year, he bested Dean Ambrose and became Mr. Money in the Bank and has already rubbed shoulders with the likes of Paul Heyman, Brock Lesnar and John Cena.
He’s pretty much guaranteed to be WWE World Heavyweight Champion so what’s left for Seth Rollins right now? Well, according to The Wrestling Observer there have been talks in the WWE of having Seth Rollins take on Sting at WrestleMania XXXI.
The Icon vs The Architect
Sting finally made his eagerly anticipated debut in the WWE at this year’s Survivor Series event, costing Team Authority the win and allowing Dolph Ziggler to pin Seth Rollins. This prompted rumours that Sting wouldn’t be taking on the man everyone expected him to face in The Undertaker, but a clash against Triple H was going to take place.
Even though it’s only a rumour at this stage, it looks as if the WWE are keeping their options open for Rollins and Sting as the match could be better than a Sting and Triple H and a Sting and The Undertaker match because he would be able to carry Sting for the entire match.
Seth Rollins is the future of the WWE, he’s been in the ring with some of the best and to get Sting at WrestleMania would be a massive milestone to add to his already-impressive resume.
Seth Rollins options
There have been other rumours going around that Seth Rollins could be inserted into the WWE World Heavyweight Championship picture, and that he could cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase on John Cena at the Royal Rumble event, opening up a number of possibilities for him.
Roman Reigns could be an opponent for him, especially if he goes ahead to win the Royal Rumble but if he doesn’t then Rollins could still take on another member of The Shield.
Dean Ambrose is also a favourite to be the last man standing in the Royal Rumble match, and a WrestleMania clash to trigger another entertaining feud between Rollins and Ambrose.
Finally, Sting is another option but obviously if the match with Sting does go ahead then Rollins will probably keep hold of his briefcase until after WrestleMania.
The favourite to take on Sting right now is Triple H and Triple H is lobbying for this match to go ahead whilst Vince is keen on Sting taking on The Undertaker. That’s the match the fans want, The Icon taking on The Deadman and 2015 is probably the final chance at having this match, depending on The Undertaker’s health.
If The Undertaker can compete in 2016 then that opens the door for Sting to have two matches in his stint in the WWE, with Triple H, Seth Rollins and even Bray Wyatt as his options before a final clash with The Undertaker.
Getting Sting inside a WrestleMania ring would be absolutely huge for Seth Rollins and his career, being the one to say the was Sting’s first and perhaps only opponent inside a WWE ring is no small feat, whatever goes down its surely set to be an interesting few months in the build-up to WrestleMania XXXI.
