Seth Rollins has not been seen on WWE television since WrestleMania XL, as he is currently on hiatus. The Visionary underwent surgery last month and has been recovering from it. However, it could be a matter of time before Rollins wraps up his rehabilitation and returns to WWE.

Now that Rollins is no longer the World Heavyweight Champion, it would be interesting to see what he does upon his comeback. From having a first-time-ever feud with a top star to returning as a heel, there are endless possibilities that could unravel following his homecoming to Monday Night RAW.

Let's look at four matches that Seth Rollins can have when he returns to WWE.

#4. A feud against Damian Priest


Damian Priest is currently the World Heavyweight Champion on RAW, a title that Seth Rollins held for 316 days. However, by the time The Visionary returns, Priest could lose the championship. Therefore, Rollins could return and start a feud with The Punisher on Monday Night RAW.

He could confront Damian Priest and criticize him for not being able to live up to the standards of a World Heavyweight Champion. This could herald a feud between the two stars on Monday Night RAW, eventually leading to a PLE match.

#3. Sharing the ring with Gunther


One of the dream matches that Rollins never had during his reign as the World Heavyweight Champion was against Gunther. However, there's a good possibility that both superstars could soon cross paths on Monday Night RAW now that they are no longer the champions.

The Visionary could start a feud with The Ring General upon his return, which could pave the way for a first-time-ever match between the two on the main roster. Not only will this rivalry result in a high-profile bout, but it could also deliver some incredible things on the red brand.

#2. A rematch with Drew McIntyre

By the time Seth Rollins returns to WWE, there's a good possibility that Drew McIntyre might become the new World Heavyweight Champion. McIntyre will battle Damian Priest at Clash at the Castle in Glasgow, Scotland, and is the heavy favorite to win the coveted gold.

Therefore, Rollins could return and seek a rematch with The Scottish Warrior for the World Title if the latter becomes a champion by then. The two juggernauts could compete against each other in a thrilling encounter at an upcoming premium live event.

#1. Seth Rollins could attack Jey Uso

One of the biggest things that can happen upon Seth Rollins' homecoming on RAW is that he could return as a heel. The Visionary could bring back his villainous persona, which fans have been longing to see for a long time.

He could return as a vicious heel and attack RAW's biggest babyface, Jey Uso, which will help him garner an unfathomable reaction. This could eventually lead to a blockbuster match between both superstars on the red brand upon the former World Heavyweight Champion's return.

Not only will this be a fresh beginning for Seth Rollins on Monday Night RAW, but it will also open doors for several exciting feuds and storylines.
