It would have been quite a start to WrestleMania 35 if Seth Rollins had collapsed during his entrance for the event's opening match, but that's exactly what he almost did.
The opening match of this year's WrestleMania saw Seth Rollins take on Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship.
The Beastslayer was able to defeat The Beast for the Universal title after hitting not one, not two, but three Curb Stomps before the pin.
However, during a recent sit-down interview with WWE where he talked about his five greatest matches, Rollins revealed that he almost didn't make it down to the ramp to the ring that night.
The Universal Champion revealed in the interview that he was so amped up to face Lesnar at WrestleMania that when he was on the stage, it felt like he was going to pass out and collapse.

Rollins said the feeling was similar to when you’ve been laying or sitting down for too long and then you stand up too quickly to the point that you get light-headed.
Luckily, he was able to recover and walk down to the ring for his WrestleMania moment. If he hadn't, it would have been quite a start to WWE's biggest show of the year.
The Beastslayer said: “That was a moment right there where I didn’t know if it was gonna happen. They were gonna have to cart me off the stage. Wouldn’t that have been a great opening to WrestleMania?”
Rollins' win vs Lesnar at WrestleMania 35 was one of five of his greatest matches he talked about in the interview.
The other matches Rollins talked about were when he faced Jinder Mahal for the NXT title in 2012, when The Shield wrestled The Wyatt Family at 2014's Elimination Chamber, when he faced John Cena at 2015's SummerSlam, and when he faced Roman Reigns at 2016's Money in the Bank.
The Beastslayer has another big match on the horizon, as he will defend the Universal Championship at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia vs 'The Fiend' Bray Wyatt in a Falls Count Anywhere match that can't be stopped for any reason.News Now - Sport News
