At WrestleMania 35 Seth Rollins defeated Brock Lesnar to capture the Universal Championship for the first time. Rollins had earned his shot at The Beast after winning the 2019 Royal Rumble Match.
Although few gave Rollins much of a chance against one of the most dominant champions of the modern era, the star found a way to win thanks to a low blow, a Superkick and three Curb Stomps. In the lead up to the match, Rollins hosted an “Ask Me Anything” thread on Reddit, where fans posed, often slightly random questions, to the would-be ‘Beast Slayer.’
“When You Get To Shagging, He’s The Wild One” – Seth Rollins
One question revolved around party game favourite, “Shag, Marry, KIll,” and Kurt Angle, Dean Ambrose (Jon Moxley) and Roman Reigns. Rollins said that while he didn’t want to kill anyone, Angle would be the one who had to go, before revealing that that he’d shag Ambrose to make sure he got himself a good story.
“God that’s tough. That’s wild. I don’t want to kill anybody. But if I had to kill someone, it would have to be Kurt. I hate to say it, but I’d have to. And I’d marry Roman because he knows what it’s like to be husband, caretaker of a home. And Ambrose, when you get to shagging, he’s the wild one, so at least I know I’d have a good story.”
Seth Rollins held the Universal Championship for 98 days, before being defeated by Brock Lesnar. At Extreme Rules 2019 Rollins picked up the win alongside Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch in a ‘Winner Take All Match’ against Baron Corbin and Lacey Evans. However, scoring the win, Brock Lesnar cashed in his Money In The Bank contract to reclaim the title.
The Universal Championship is currently held by Rollins’ former Shield brother Roman Reigns. The Tribal Chief has held the gold since August 2020, meaning his title run now stands at a staggering 802 days and counting.
