Sensational Seth Rollins

Nobody is stranger to Seth Freaking Rollins’ wrestling abilities, former ROH Champion Tyler Black has come a long way since becoming the first ever NXT Champion.

He has been the architect, he has been the kingslayer, but most importantly he has been the MAN. Last few months had been a little stale for Rollins, Yeah he was the cover boy for WWE 2K18, but since defeating Triple H at the previous Wrestle Mania, he was not able to grasp his mojo and become the World Champion for the third time, a reign he truly deserves.

Receiving a championship opportunity isn’t easy when you have someone like Brock Lesner has your champion who decides to defend his title once in a blue moon.

So tag team division was the route Seth had to take with his old buddy Dean Ambrose, make no mistake they were incredible tag champions and put up a great title feud against The Bar.

Seth, Dean, Sheamus, and Cesaro had a natural chemistry, the tag team championship matches were main event calibers. Then even during the Shield reunion which failed awfully, Seth was always impressive. Then again Dean Ambrose got injured in a match against Samoa Joe, We all thought is finally Seth is going to get his singles push? But Alas, Seth was given a veteran role to put over Jason Jordon, holy cow! Seth made that work too, Seth and Jordon became the Tag team champions. People started speculating based on Jordon’s character, are we going to see Seth V Jordon at the Mania, which no one wants to see. But who knows what fate has written for the Cross-fit expert? Jason Jordon also got injured, now finally Seth is on his own, they lost their tag titles against The Bar.
So, Elimination chamber qualifiers are almost over, what is Seth Rollins going to do? Seth finally breaks his silence, requested an entry to the 2nd chance match and was granted by the general manager Kurt Angle. In a controversial ending Seth and Finn Balor, both received an opportunity to participate in the chamber. Now it’s a 7-Men Chamber Match. Winner faces Brock Lesner at the main event of the grandest stage for the Universal Championship.

 

Now we are going to discuss the main reason, I have decided to write this article, Monday Night RAW 19 Feb 2018, we are having a 7- Men gauntlet featuring all the participants in the Elimination Chamber, So Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins started the match, and they delivered a battle, a physical war, after a back and forth encounter Seth pinned Roman with a roll up. But this was not it, It was just the beginning, Next John Cena came out and they delivered an outstanding wrestling match, with all the finishers and impactful moves nothing could make them stop, Seth countered AA, to a V-trigger and then Curb Stomp, Cena was eliminated too, Seth could barely stand, Elias was next, Seth fought he was still going, finally Elias pinned Seth, but who knew whether Seth could go more or not?

65 minutes, Ladies and Gentlemen, 65 minutes is no joke, and the scary part is, the entire time Seth moved the match at the same pace, is he a human? Seth Rollins did something remarkable last night, the whole world is talking about him, Is WWE finally decided to let him carry the torch?

A detailed report of the match is served below, Roman challenging Lesner being the top speculation the entire past year and it doesn’t seem to be changed as of yet, so what’s really in store for the architect in WrestleMania?
