Seth Rollins is doing some of his best work in the WWE right now, so it wouldn’t be a massive surprise if the Monday Night RAW stars are queuing up backstage in the hope that they’re able to share the ring with him.
When stars like Mojo Rawley are being made to look great in the ring, then it’s obvious that The Kingslayer is up there as one of WWE’s most prized assets. This is reinforced by the fact that he’s practically carrying the championship picture on the red brand as the Intercontinental Champion, with Brock Lesnar turning up with the Universal strap whenever he wants to.
It’s not just a large group of fans on social media that are noticing his efforts either. As recently as last week, SmackDown LIVE’s Daniel Bryan was full of praise when shooting down claims that he was the best; suggesting that the accolade goes to either Rollins or AJ Styles right now.
He said: “But never once have I considered myself the best - I look at AJ Styles, and I look at [Seth] Rollins. I saw these matches with Miz were great but Rollins is in those matches - and I don’t know what is different, but now he’s clicking on every level.”
Fans knew that Rollins was a unique talent; it’s not just something that’s coming to fruition or now. It’s obvious that WWE is taking advantage of just how hot he currently is, as he’s in arguably the longest matches every Monday, while a lot was made of his gauntlet efforts some months ago.
So, it probably comes as no surprise that there is intense speculation that The Architect could be next in line to take on The Beast for the Universal Championship.
A trend he started on social media has resulted in many believing that Rollins’ ironman efforts - along with his refusal to give up - could be believable enough for him to stand a chance against Lesnar.
Before that, though, he might have another epic challenge as another WWE legend has noticed his effort, with Chris Jericho very impressed with the work Rollins is currently doing in WWE.
JERICHO VS. ROLLINS?
When speaking to GiveMeSport’s Alex McCarthy on the Turnbuckle Talk podcast, Jericho revealed that he always knew Rollins was going to be a special talent and loved working with him last year - as you’ll be able to see in the tweet below.
Fans in that thread are also buzzing about what Jericho had to say, already creating scenarios on how a Jericho and Rollins match could come to fruition.
Media outlets are praising Rollins, current WWE stars are doing the same, and even legends like Jericho are noticing just how impressive his performances have been, so it’s no surprise why so many would want to work with him.
Consistency like this is why it’s difficult to suggest anybody else could be a better in-ring performer than the former Shield member today.
