Seth Rollins has been having a pretty great time of things in the last year or so.
The former Shield member became WWE Heavyweight Champion after turning his back on his former allies, going on to cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase at WrestleMania earlier this year against Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns.
Rollins is one of the top guys in the company now, but that doesn't mean he is above change from the very top, in fact, it means the exact opposite.

No More Curb Stomps
Rollins was speaking to Rolling Stone Magazine ahead of SummerSlam, and revealed all about why the Curb Stomp was taken away from him as his finisher.
"I want to make it clear that it wasn't banned because of a risk of injury – I've never hurt anybody with the move ever," Rollins started off as saying.
Rollins went on to add that the reason the curb stamp was banned was because of his rising popularity combined with the fact that it could be a very dangerous move when performed by kids who think they should actually stamp someone's head in to the ground.
In fact, it seems like it was actually Vince McMahon himself who made the decision to do away with the move.
"We mislabeled the move to begin with – we gave it a lousy name – and then once I got to this level, we started to notice that I was going to be making a lot of media appearances, and moms were going to be seeing the representative of WWE doing this kind of maneuver, and kids were going to try it and it could go wrong very easily," Rollins added.
"That's stuff I don't think about, but that's why we have people like Vince McMahon, who have done this for their entire lives – they think about stuff like that, and they keep us alive and not in court settling lawsuits all the time."
Rollins finished off by adding that he is very happy with having the Pedigree as his new finisher, considering it a privilege to be able to use it.
