Seth Rollins has been out injured since November last year and despite the fact that doctors have stated that the former WWE World Heavyweight Champion will not be clear to return to WWE until June, it seems that there could be plans for him to return a few weeks earlier.
Rollins was backstage at WrestleMania 32 and then again at the Raw after WrestleMania the following night as fans anticipated an incredible return, but instead they were once again forced to wait.
Rollins will reportedly be backstage again at WWE Payback on Sunday night and could help to set in motion dramatic events that will lead to the reunion of The Shield but with an unfamiliar face.

THE SHIELD 2.0
Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson made their WWE debut a few weeks ago and could very easily be set to play a vital part in a historic WWE story line.
AJ Styles has made it blatantly clear that he doesn't want Gallows and Anderson's help this Sunday night when he faces Roman Reigns in his first ever WWE World Heavyweight Championship match.
But the thought is that the former Bullet Club duo will not take no for an answer and decide to intervene anyway. Their interference could then cost AJ Styles the WWE World Heavyweight Championship and lead to him turning on his former allies and them then joining up with Roman Reigns as he finally turns heel.
AJ could then be left in a three-on-one situation, until one of Roman's biggest enemies makes a return and talks Dean Ambrose into helping as well.

Seth Rollins could easily make his return to help AJ Styles, especially since Roman is currently holding the WWE World Heavyweight Championship that he never lost. Just the thought of two of the best wrestlers in the world currently teaming up would be enough to excite fans into tuning in for this story line.
Ambrose would have to be talked into helping, but if Roman Reigns turned heel then Dean would want to help bring his friend back to the right side again and it would end up being a fantastic showdown if WWE can tie it all together in time for this year's Biggest party of the Summer.
As already stated, this is just a theory, AJ Styles could easily align himself with Gallows and Anderson on Sunday night, as well as Finn Balor playing a pivotal role in proceedings, but if Seth Rollins makes his return and aligns himself with AJ Styles then the WWE Universe are set for a fantastic few weeks.
