Seth Rollins is set to defend his WWE World Heavyweight Championship against The Beast Incarnate Brock Lesnar at next Sunday's Battleground event, and reports today suggest that Rollins could be walking out of St Louis with his Championship around his waist.
Seth Rollins has lost Jamie Noble and Joey Mercury in the last week as Brock Lesnar took both security guards out by using the car Seth brought them as a weapon, and the World Champion has sent his other bodyguard Kane on a vacation to Hawaii, which means he will be walking into Monday night Raw on his own.
Rollins has never stepped in the ring one-on-one with Lesnar, the last time he faced him was at WrestleMania in a triple threat match and he only got the win because he hit the now banned Curb Stomp on Roman Reigns.

Before that Rollins faced Lesnar and John Cena at this year's Royal Rumble in a match of the year candidate after Seth finally unveiled his Phoenix Splash in WWE. But he still came up short as The Beast retained the title.
Rollins alone doesn't really stand a chance against Lesnar, but the thought is that he will get the win by disqualification. This means that Brock Lesnar has got to attack Rollins so much that he is disqualified or someone has to interfere on Brock's behalf and attack the current Champion.
That one man could well be Triple H, the tension between the two has been building for months and it seems now the COO has Sheamus to join The Authority and take Rollins' place, he has no need for him so their feud can really start.
There is a thought that Sheamus could be coming out and cashing in at Battleground and taking the title before it shows that he was working with The Authority the whole time, but he is already in a rivalry with Randy Orton and it doesn't seem like he is ready for the World title yet.
That being said, Rollins could easily take the title into a feud with Triple H, they could even make their match at Summerslam for the World Championship, the one title Triple H and his ego haven't yet won.
Either way it would make no sense for WWE to put the World title back on Brock Lesnar. He isn't the beast he was six months ago and back then WWE didn't know what to do with him to take the championship away so it seems unlikely that they will put themselves into that kind of predicament again.
Battleground is set to have a surprising ending to lead into the Biggest Party of the Summer, so it's won't be that much of a shock if this isn't a straightforward match.
