Seth Rollins won both his United States Championships after interesting events

The former Shield member's first US title win is regarded as one of the most shocking WWE moments of the last decade. However, he didn't win a clean match to become champion.

While he represented The Authority as the top heel in the company, two of the strongest babyfaces, namely Sting and John Cena, feuded with him. During his match with John Cena, popular celebrity Jon Stewart interfered, shocking the audience.

He entered the match with a chair and fans expected him to hit Seth Rollins. However, he proceeded to hit John Cena, leading to the crowning of a new United States Champion.

The Visionary's second United States Championship win also took place as a heel. He was scheduled to wrestle champion Bobby Lashley on the October 10, 2022 edition of RAW. However, the match wasn't completely fair.

Before the bout, the returning Brock Lesnar assaulted The All Mighty and caused considerable damage. The match appeared to be canceled, but Rollins manipulated Lashley to fight while exhausted. The Visionary quickly defeated him to become the new champion.
