Where does Seth Rollins fit back into WWE?

Seth Rollins has been out injured since November last year when it was announced that he had suffered a torn ACL, MCL and meniscus which would sideline him for up to nine months. 

Rollins is still out with this injury, but it seems that he could be set for a return around the middle of June, which gives WWE a couple options when it comes to slotting him back into story lines on-screen.

Here are two ways in which WWE could bring back Rollins and immediately restore his position as one of the company's top guys.

Seth Rollins made history when he cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase at WrestleMania 31 and won the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, so it comes as no surprise that many of the WWE Universe are speculating that Rollins could be set to return at the Money in the Bank pay-per-view and once again win the briefcase. 

CM Punk is the only two time Money in the Bank contract winner from when he won the ladder match at consecutive events in 2008 and 2009. It wouldn't be a stretch too far to assume that WWE would be happy to allow Rollins to equal this record. 

The only problem with this theory is the fact that Rollins wouldn't need to win The Money in the Bank match in order to gain a championship match, Rollins never lost his title, he was forced to relinquish it when he was injured and he could easily return and ask for a match with Reigns. 


Much like when CM Punk left Money in the Bank 2011 with the WWE Championship, only to return a week later with the title and then challenge the new Champion John Cena to a match to become the rightful champion, many fans are speculating that this could be WWE's way of taking the title away from Roman Reigns. 

The thought is that Reigns will defend his championship at Money in the Bank before Rollins returns, who will also be wearing the championship and informs Reigns that he never defeated him, so he isn't actually the rightful champion. 

Rollins would return as a heel and WWE would have a way of setting up the match between Rollins and Reigns, one that has been scheduled twice, but never happened. Night of Champions 2014 advertised it before Reigns was hospitalized and Rollins was then set to face Reigns at Survivor Series in 2015 before he was then injured. 

WWE need to make Rollins' return one that is memorable. Raw ratings lately are lower than WWE are happy with and Rollins could be the one to help with these.

There have been more rumors stating that Rollins could be kept out of the main event picture when he returns, but these ideas seem much more likely given WWE's track record.
