We're halfway through 2019, and the year has already given us some of the biggest moments in pro-wrestling history, that would be talked about for decades to come. A year ago, who would have thought that Becky Lynch of all people would go on to headline WrestleMania, and actually end up winning the match? Kofi Kingston's KofiMania movement ensured that his decade-long dream would come true in front of 80,000 fans at WrestleMania 35, where he defeated Daniel Bryan to win his first WWE title.
Additionally, Cody Rhodes is currently EVP of a major pro-wrestling company that's being backed by a billionaire, plus the former Dean Ambrose is a major star in that company. Several things have changed over the past few months, but there's some stuff that still reminds us of the past, Let's take a dive down memory lane and look at five rivalries from the past that have been reignited in 2019:
#5 Brock Lesnar vs Seth Rollins
After winning the Royal Rumble match earlier this year, Seth Rollins went on to defeat Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 35. The rivalry continued further, as Lesnar recently cashed in his Money In The Bank contract on Rollins at Extreme Rules, winning the Universal title in the process.
These two had previously fought around 4 years ago. Rollins, Cena, and Lesnar competed in a Triple Threat match at Royal Rumble 2015, with Rollins being praised by fans for his incredible performance in the bout. Rollins then cashed in his MITB contract in the main event of WrestleMania 31, dethroning Lesnar from the top spot. The two had a match at Battleground 2015, which saw Lesnar defeat Rollins via disqualification, after interference from a returning Undertaker. This prevented Rollins from losing the belt and Lesnar got involved in a feud with The Phenom.
