Seth Rollins has emerged to become to one of the greatest in-ring performers of this generation and has earned his spot in the main event of WrestleMania 35 this year.

The Architect is all set to lock horns with Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship in New Jersey, and while there have been rumors surrounding his current injury, the former Intercontinental Champion is still scheduled to bring the fight to the Beast at MetLife Stadium.

Ever since Rollins became a part of the Shield and debuted on the main roster, we all knew that WWE were embellishing three of the most talented upcoming stars for the future.

There's no denying that the Kingslayer took no time in righting the wrongs and ascended to become every bit of the embodiment of the phrase - 'The future is now'.

His incredible agility and versatility between the ropes is commendable and has earned him a lot of critical acclaim for legions of WWE fans and his peers within the squared circle.

His ruthlessness is a testament to his willingness to succeed in Vince McMahon's billion dollar company and he is certainly receiving the laurels for his patience and perseverance.

Despite being such a prolific figure in the WWE, there are many incredible facts about the Architect that his fanatics may not know about. What are they? Let's find out.

Here are the 5 shocking facts about Seth Rollins you won't believe are true.

#1 He has not had a single world title match in more than two years

Extremely disappointing, this one.
Extremely disappointing, this one.

For all those hardcore fans who have been following Seth Rollins' incredible journey ever since he joined the main roster might be certainly disappointed to know that the Architect hasn't had a world title match in more than two years.

With Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar usually fighting over the Universal Championship, Seth Rollins never really received the opportunity to fight for the most coveted prize on the red brand.

His last World title match happened at the November 21st edition of Monday Night Raw in 2016 where he locked horns with the then Universal Champion, Kevin Owens.

While Seth Rollins did everything he could to get the better off the Prizefighter, Chris Jericho's clever inclusion into the bout coerced Owens to defeat the Architect.

Considering that this is the first time in two years that the Kingslayer would be getting his first big title opportunity against such a huge box-office attraction like Brock Lesnar, we genuinely hope that the former WWE Champion makes the most of it and slays the Mayor of Suplex City.

#2 Cesaro is one of his greatest friends ever in the wrestling business

While many of the professional wrestlers stay very secretive about their personal life outside of the squared circle, the Architect is always seen having a good time with his wrestling buddies.

Considering that Seth Rollins is such a gym freak, he has been able to make some great friends along the road, and one of his dearest ones in the list is none other than Cesaro.

Both the competitors share a lot in common and have openly stated their admiration for each other's versatility between the ropes.

We all know that the Swiss Superman is one of the most underrated performers in Vince McMahon's billion dollar company, but his life outside of the squared circle seems to be a very interesting one.

Both Rollins and Cesaro have been usually spotted drinking coffee together, and have been very supportive of each other throughout their careers ever since they made their marks on the independent circuits. We only hope that this friendship never dies.

#3 Vince McMahon didn't want him in the Universal Championship match at WrestleMania 35

This is true
This is true

There's no denying that Seth Rollins has proved time and time again why he is still the best thing on Monday Night Raw every single week.

The former WWE Champion literally carried the red brand on his back for the better part of 2018 and played an influential role in churning out classics with the likes of Finn Balor, The Miz, and Dolph Ziggler.

Despite being such a deserving contender for a main event spot at the Grandest Stage of Them All, Vince McMahon didn't really want the Architect to be a part of the Universal Championship match at WrestleMania 35.

The original plan, however, was to coronate Drew Mcintyre as the biggest thing in the entire WWE, where the Scottish Terminator would collide with the Monster Among Men and defeat him for the biggest prize on Monday Night Raw.

Since Triple H has been such an advocate for Seth Rollins ever since he made his way to NXT, the Game's endorsement helped the former Intercontinental Champion in finally getting the spot he rightfully deserves.

#4 He was almost fired from Vince McMahon's billion dollar company

When the Shield rose to superstardom in no time flat on the main roster, legions of WWE fans knew that they were witnessing the very best of the future of this industry.

Since Vince McMahon always wanted to perceive the Hounds of Justice as the most dominating faction in the entire wrestling industry, there were many rumors that the popular faction had a lot of backstage heat.

There were significant speculations that many professional wrestlers felt that the talented group were taking their ongoing success and in-ring characters very seriously.

According to many backstage officials, Seth Rollins was on the verge of receiving good luck for his future endeavours and fired by the WWE management.

There was a concern that the Kingslayer had an attitude problem which coerced a lot of officials to be frustrated with him, and while there's been no confirmation about this, Rollins has been definitely fortunate to have not been fired.

#5 Evan Bourne advised him to join WWE when he was also considering an offer from TNA

Since we all know that Seth Rollins has scratched and clawed his way to the top of the wrestling industry ever since he ran riot in the independent circuits, he was always dangling between the possibility of either joining TNA or renegotiating with ROH.

Thankfully, Evan Bourne (now known as Matt Sydal) who is very close with Seth Rollins persuaded the Architect to join Vince McMahon's billion dollar company and suggested him that it would be worth it.

The former WWE Champion has openly admitted that it was Bourne who played an influential role in setting the right mindset whilst he was still considering many offers, especially the one from TNA.

While Evan Bourne remained very underutilized under Vince McMahon, his advice to Rollins definitely panned out pretty well for the Architect, as he is now the most prominent figure in the entire WWE.
