Could Seth Rollins naked photos scandal cost him the World Championship?

Published 2 Comments

Perhaps the biggest WWE story of the week surrounds Seth Rollins and the pictures that were leaked by his fiancée on social networking site Twitter late on Monday night.

WWE and Seth Rollins have since released statements apologising for the breach of privacy, but the latest reports today suggest that Seth Rollins could in fact be punished because he was the one behind the initial photograph that was leaked. 

Latest development

Reddit user Metsfan4eva is once again behind this latest speculation and it is thought that Seth Rollins is set to be fined for the part he played in the "scandal." It is reported to only be a small amount that Mr Money in the Bank will be fined, and it's only because Vince McMahon wont to hold someone accountable and he can't punish any of the women involved. 

Triple H was apparently against fining Seth because he didn't hold him responsible for any of what had happened, but it seems Vince saw it a different way. 

Vince was mostly concerned about the worldwide media coverage that the leak had seen and the fact that this news had taken over all other WWE news this week.

Further issues for Rollins

As well as this it has been speculated that Seth Rollins was set to hold the Money in the Bank briefcase until June before he cashed in and became WWE Word Heavyweight Champion, but now it seems this will not be happening. Rollins could instead become only the third Money in the Bank winner to cash in and lose or he may have his briefcase taken away from him all together. 

Triple H reportedly banned anyone backstage at WWE from speaking to Rollins about the situation, and it is also said that their were meetings backstage at Smackdown tapings last night that saw officials reiterate proper Social Media etiquette and also told talent that they should remove any photos that they would consider "risky" from their mobile phones immediately. 

As stated the above is just speculation but MetFans4Eva has been right about a lot of things in WWE as of late.
