5 Reasons why Seth Rollins left Saudi Arabia with the Universal Championship
Seth Rollins successfully defended the Universal Championship against Baron Corbin as part of his scheduled match in The Middle East, before he was attacked by the Lone Wolf and Brock Lesnar then made his way to the ring.
Lesnar looked like he was going to cash in his Money in the Bank contract before Paul Heyman fell through the ropes, distracted his client and allowed Rollins to deliver a low blow. This then led to Rollins nailing Lesnar with a number of chair shots that allowed him to escape from the ring with his championship.
Seth Rollins wasn't a hundred percent but he was still able to walk out with his championship around his waist but is this because WWE has much bigger plans when it comes to this scenario?
#5 WWE wants Seth Rollins to be built as an unbeatable force
Seth Rollins has managed to defeat Brock Lesnar in a one-on-one match and is one of the only stars in WWE who isn't scared of The Beast. In the absence of the company's main stars on Raw like Roman Reigns and John Cena the company obviously needs to push someone as the next big thing and that could be Seth Rollins.
The Architect was able to overcome two men to retain his championship in Jeddah despite the fact that he had taped ribs throughout the match and the company made it clear that he wasn't one hundred percent heading into the show.
The Universal Championship has been passed around a lot over the past few years, so if Rollins is able to have a lengthy reign then it would definitely bring some credibility to one of the company's newest championships.
