Seth Rollins is enjoying life right now. The Superstar has risen to the top of the WWE tree after a dramatic 12 months and it busy preparing for another title showdown at this weekend's Battleground pay-per-view.
But, as is the case whenever you are at the top, Rollins has a number of people taking aim at him and what he has. Not just current WWE Superstar's either.
With former WWE Superstar John Morrison claiming he would "destroy" Seth Rollins in a match, the current holder of the WWE title wasn't about to take the insult lying down.

Speaking on the PodNasty podcast, Seth Rollins was asked about Morrison's challenge and his response was typical of a man confident in what he has achieved to date:
"If I'm not mistaken, I believe John Morrison is a zero-time WWE World Heavyweight champion. Mind you, zero. As in never once did he win the big one" Rollins began.
"And I'm, what, not even three years into my WWE career and I've already won Money in the Bank, won the WWE title at WrestleMania, first-ever NXT champion so there's a lot of things that I've already destroyed John Morrison at.
"If John Morrison thinks he can take me in any of those endeavours, I would love for John Morrison to step up and say something like that to my face."
Confident talk indeed from the reigning WWE Champion.
Closer than you think?
With John Morrison having spent his career in WWE (2004-2011) struggling to hit the big time as a solo wrestler, Seth Rollins certainly has the high ground when it comes to comparing resumes.
Morrison though is widely regarded as a hugely talented wrestler who was never given a fair shot to make a title run by the WWE. He has since gone on to big success in Lucha Underground and there will be some who would at least put a Rollins-Morrison match down as a tightly fought contest.
Bigger fish to fry
Ahead of perhaps his biggest match in the WWE yet, however, you wouldn't expect Seth Rollins to do anything less than rip into the challenge of the former WWE star.
With the intimidating figure of Brock Lesnar baying for his blood ahead of this Sunday's match, the former Shield member has to be confident in his own ability if he is to stand a chance of keeping the belt he won so dramatically at WrestleMania 31.
