Seth Rollins has challenged Stone Cold Steve Austin to a match at WrestleMania 36

Seth Rollins and Stone Cold Steve Austin

Despite being one of the faces of the company right now, Seth Rollins isn't the most popular superstar when it comes to fan opinion right now in WWE.

The Kingslayer has been booked as arguably one of the strongest stars in the last few months, having defeated Brock Lesnar once again at SummerSlam in August.

After he beat Braun Strowman at Clash Of Champions in September though, you could sense there was some dissatisfaction from fans as to how the Monster Among Men was defeated by Rollins.

There were a few boos from the live audience, but come the end of Hell In A Cell last week, those smatterings turned into a full-scale turn, as Seth's destruction of Bray Wyatt was negatively received by the Sacramento crowd.

And after he burnt down the Firefly Fun House on Raw this week, Rollins received further booing from the WWE Universe who right now are clearly leaning towards liking Wyatt.

Rollins must be wondering what he could possibly do to get his old fans back onside with him in this tough time - so he's only gone and challenged one of the biggest legends in the industry to a match.

After stating last month on his podcast that he feels as though he could step into the ring and wrestle again, WWE fans have been fantasy booking Stone Cold Steve Austin's return to WWE.

Coincidentally on WWE Backstage last night, Austin's potential comeback was being discussed in a segment titled 'Book It' by the likes of Christian and Booker T, who said he would like to see Dolph Ziggler face Austin.

It seems Rollins has other ideas though, as it looks like he's challenged Austin to a match via his official Twitter account.

Rollins is right - WrestleMania 36 isn't far away, in-fact it's less than six months until WWE invades Tampa, and there's been no shortage of legend challenges already.

Randy Orton has asked The Rock to face him at the event, and even Hulk Hogan wants to come out of retirement and face Vince McMahon one last time.

With Austin saying himself he could wrestle again, it'll be interesting to see what his response will  be to Rollins' apparent challenge.

It could be the worst thing Rollins has done from a babyface standpoint though - as he's never going to get cheered against a returning Austin.
