When Seth Rollins returned at WWE Payback 2016, it led to many questions being asked. One of those questions was about the status of 'The Authority' group that he was part of before his unfortunate and untimely injury. Those questions have seemingly been answered as part of a backstage segment with Stephanie McMahon.
During an interview with Renee Young, Stephanie walked in to see Rollins, informing him that their business relationship has changed since he's been away.
When Seth broke into the WWE, he came equipt with his finisher - The Curb Stomp. The move was a favorite of many WWE fans, however, the safety of kids trying it at home could not be guaranteed, so it was abolished. Rollins was then handed a new one.

As a result of the partnership of Rollins and Triple H, the former Shield member adopted the Pedigree - a move made famous by HHH during his future Hall of Fame worthy career.
While Triple H served as the mentor to Rollins, it made complete sense for him to be bestowed with the Pedigree.
As Stephanie stated on RAW, however, things have changed. Now that 'The Authority' been terminated, one can only presume the same is to be said about the relationship between Rollins and Hunter.
If this is the case and Seth no longer has the King of Kings as his mentor, then it is time to give him a new move, one that is part of his identity as opposed to Triple H's.
While Rollins has gained a nice grasp on performing the Pedigree, it seems unsuitable for him to carry on with the move following the storyline partnership with Trips being over.It would also be widely beneficial for Rollins to establish a new move that shows his style to better move away from the idea that Rollins can not win on his own.
A change in finishing move would possibly be the thing needed for reinventing Seth Rollins, part of the further storyline of him coming back better than before.
