3 theories as to why Seth Rollins was removed from Team Hogan at WWE Crown Jewel
#2. To allow someone else to get momentum
Seth Rollins is a top star and one of the best in WWE over the last few years. He is an established name that doesn't need to be in this match. However, there are a lot of other wrestlers on the roster who are looking for a boost of momentum. They have been halted and are stuck in their places. Therefore, an opportunity like this would be a great way to ignite their careers.
A name that comes to mind is Kofi Kingston, who recently lost his WWE Championship to Brock Lesnar in humiliating fashion. It looks like WWE does not have solid plans for him going forward. Hence, this match could be useful for him to get some momentum back from the squash.
Another name that comes to mind is Kevin Owens, who recently got drafted to Raw. He is a babyface who needs to maintain his hot run after firing Shane McMahon; being on Team Hogan would help his case.
There are quite a few other wrestlers who could fill up the spot. They will certainly come out of this program with more star power than they went in. Therefore, it is evident why Seth Rollins doesn't need to be in the match.Published 18 Oct 2019, 23:15 IST
