Why Seth Rollins vs Randy Orton is the toughest WrestleMania XXXI match to call

Published Add your comment

With their ongoing feud having been the talking point of Monday Night Raw in the build up to WrestleMania XXXI, it seems highly likely Seth Rollins' match with Randy Orton could be the biggest of the night this coming Sunday.

These two WWE superstars have been enemies for several months and it seems WrestleMania XXXI will be where we see the culmination of their ongoing battle come to light once and for all.

Ongoing feud

Following Orton being excluded from The Authority through a number of vicious Curb Stomps from Rollins, The Viper had a long spell away from WWE due to filming as well as other commitments, but his delayed return only provided more of a build up for feud he was to continue with Rollins once he was back at WWE.

For Rollins, WrestleMania XXXI will doubtlessly be his opportunity to prove his worth to the WWE Universe. Though we have had the pleasure of listening to his promos on the mic week in, week out, the huge event this year will give him the time to ultimately prove his capabilities as a wrestler.

Many will argue that Rollins was the one who was easily forgotten as a third of The Shield, but since their split he has succeeded as an individual and we surely still have a lot to look forward to from him.

In addition, his match with Orton will see two of the younger WWE superstars, (who are 28 and 34 years-old respectively) battle it out in a match up which will do a lot for both wrestlers.

Brutal moves

Another reason this match will surely be the most exciting of the night, is the athletic ability and brutality of the signature moves both wrestlers possess.

As if the sound of a 'Curb Stomp' is not savage enough, the fact Rollins has already planted several on Orton in the past, with this including delivering them onto a set of steel steps in November of last year, it would be understandable to think that the match this coming Sunday night will not be the most tame. 

On the other hand, Randy Orton's RKO move is one of the most popular within WWE. Whether it has been used as part of a gimmick in a Vine video or powerfully executed in the ring, Rollins will surely not want to be on the receiving end of one at the Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California on 29th March.

When looking at the card for this year's WrestleMania pay-per-view event, it does not quite seem the most exciting. Although it is undeniably difficult to meet the expectations of last year's emphatic anniversary WrestleMania, some of the matches which make up this year's card have not received anywhere near the sort of hype they deserve. 

Many of the matches which accompany this huge bout on Sunday night seem to have slightly predictable winners, but as ever, anything can happen with WWE. For Rollins vs Orton however, this match seems simply too tough to call which makes it all the more exciting and why it is surely going to be the highlight of WrestleMania XXXI.
