Match against Cena
Rollins had his first match of the night against John Cena. As a young WWE superstar, you would always love to have a match against Cena. It could readily levitate you rank in the company.
This match didn't work for Seth as he not only lost against Cena but also lost his newly won US title within just 28 days. It's so fitting to look at a guy who has been able to defend the WWE title over the past siz months but couldn't successfully defend the US title at least once. The move to give Cena the victory is good for the company but obviously not so good for Seth.
This is the major takeaway of the night for the 'architect'. Many speculated that Seth would get some help from 'The Authority' and he would somehow defend the title.
But all that speculation was proved wrong. It was a surprise to many seeing Seth defeat the 'Icon' all by himself. It doesn't matter whether it was a roll-out victory or a count out victory unless you could do that alone and keep winning. Sting was let down yet again which means that he s now 0-2 in the WWE. But for Seth, it was an achievement.
Seth faced two men on the night, but he got beat by four superstars on the same night. Sheamus, who tried to cash-in his 'Money in the Bank' contract, attacked Seth and delivered a vicious 'Brogue Kick' to the Champion.
Just when the referee was about to ring the bell, something shocking happened. Kane appeared out of nowhere and took his revenge. He delivered a Choke Slam to Seth and followed it up with a Tombstone.
After all this, it should be as clear as day-light that Seth has unfinished business with many guys and that would mean anyone could attack him suddenly to seek redemption.
