After six long months spent waiting on the sidelines to return from a torn ACL, MCL and meniscus injury suffered in the back end of 2016, Seth Rollins is finally back.
'The Architect' made his presence felt in a big way by delivering a pedigree to Roman Reigns at the end of the Extreme Rules pay-per-view and then being given a shot at the World Heavyweight Championship by Shane McMahon.
So, while the former Shield member will be feuding with Roman Reigns potentially until SummerSlam later in the year, he already has his sights set on facing some other exciting WWE superstars.

Rollins appeared on ESPN "Off The Top Rope" segment with Jonathan Coachman and spoke about a wide variety of things, including his comeback from injury and the dejection at missing out on being a part of the biggest WrestleMania in WWE history.
He also spoke about who he wants to face inside the squared circle, with some very interesting superstars being called out.
"You got Apollo Crews, you got Sami Zayn," Rollins answered when Coachman asked who he wanted to get in the ring with.
"For me, I think AJ Styles. I have wrestled AJ one time, ten years ago, in front of a very small crowd. So it would be nice for that to come full circle."
Rollins actually sounded like he wanted to have a fully fledged feud with Styles, involving several matches and a deep storyline.
"Hopefully, AJ and I can have a series of matches in front of a crowd that are just a little bigger than that."
"He's always been an idol of mine, someone who I have patterned myself after so it would be pretty killer for Seth Rollins and AJ Styles to go at it one more time," he added.
Luckily for all of you, we have found a video of the match that Rollins was talking about - when he went by the name Tyler Black. It happened 10 years ago last month and ended with Styles getting the win with a Styles Clash after 20 excellent minutes of wrestling.
