It was rumoured earlier that WWE was looking to have Seth Rollins face Triple H at Royal Rumble instead of Wrestlemania 33, as the company wanted a big match for the Alamodome that could fill the arena’s 60,000 seats.

His feud with Triple H originally began when the Game returned during Rollins’ Fatal-4-Way elimination match for the Vacant Universal Championship and attacked Reigns and Rollins, helping Kevin Owens win the Universal title.

Plans were then changed to Roman Reigns, challenging Triple H for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at the main event of Wrestlemania 32.
