Seth Rollins crashed back into our world at Extreme Rules, destroying Roman Reigns and staking his claim as champion.
Having never lost the title, vacating it due to injury back in November, he has proceeded to put himself back in contention for the title, with a match against current champion Roman Reigns set for Money In The Bank in June.
A somewhat disappointing part of Seth Rollins' return is WWE’s decision to keep him heel, with Rollins delivering a recent promo on Monday Night Raw in order to attract major heat from the fans.

Fans have been clamouring for a Seth Rollins face-turn for a long time, as well as wanting to see a showdown with Triple H.
However, given the decision to keep him heel it begs the question, will WWE keep protecting Roman Reigns?
Styles and Reigns' feud was epic and no-one can deny that two superstars put on some incredible matches together, achieving a natural chemistry that is not easy to create.
Many fans wanted to see AJ Styles become WWE champion, however, many fans and spectators alike argued that this was just a dream and that WWE would never allow this to happen.
Sure enough, Reigns came out the man on top yet again, and it would seem that Styles was just another superstar used to make Reigns look like a ‘strong’ champion.
In fairness to Reigns, his final match with Styles was very competitive, and he appeared to be winning fans over with his performance, however, this still doesn’t change the fact that WWE still proceeds to push him, regardless of the fan’s clear discontentment with the superstar.
From this moment on, it looks like Reigns will retain the championship at Money In The Bank, leading to an ongoing feud between these two. That will take us into SummerSlam and culminate in another title match.
However, it's a possibility that Dean Ambrose will win the Money In The Bank Ladder Match and either enter himself into the title match, resulting in a ‘Shield’ triple threat match for the title, or he will cash in the contract after the subsequent match and defeat either Rollins or Reigns for the title.
