WWE: Is Seth Rollins set to win and vacate the United States Championship?

Published 8 Comments

With The Undertaker and Brock Lesnar ready to main event this year's SummerSlam, it is already set to be one of the biggest events of the year. 

Add to this the fact that John Cena or Seth Rollins could create history with one of the two superstars set to become the first ever wrestler to hold the United States and WWE World Heavyweight Championships simultaneously and you have have an event worthy of the SummerSlam name. 


When Seth Rollins first announced that the match would be for the two championships, the thought was that WWE would have a bigger superstar like Sting interfere in the match and leave both superstars with their respective championships.

Now it looks like the winner of the match will in fact be vacating the United States Championship and keeping the world title instead. This would be a great way to take the World Championship away from John Cena without hurting him but it could also be a way to finally dethrone Seth Rollins. 

After John Cena's heroics when he finished his match two weeks ago on Raw despite his broken nose, it is hard to see WWE booking him to lose his championship after he has rushed to return to fitness for the match.

At the same time it is also hard to see WWE allowing John Cena to equal Ric Flair's record setting 16 time World Championship reigns so soon. 


There has been a lot of online speculation since last week's announcement, but the one that seems to carry the most weight sees John Cena losing the match at SummerSlam and Seth Rollins leaving with the bragging rights. 

Rollins would then vacate the United States Championship and give him a lot more heel heat following the prestige that John Cena has brought it over the past few months. 

John Cena would then be free to pursue Seth Rollins for the World Championship instead and when Brock Lesnar has finished his current rivalry with The Undertaker, he will once again step back into the World title picture and the ever familiar Cena/Lesnar feud will begin again. 

Lets not get ahead of ourselves though, Cena and Rollins are set to have a lengthy feud over the next few months and even if Lesnar comes out of The Undertaker feud looking strong then these are just rumours and WWE could still change any plans they have made. 

It is likely that by now they have the lead up to The Royal Rumble booked out and almost set in stone, but as always in WWE, everything is subject to change and with both titles up for grabs , anyone could leave New York with the championships.
