Seth Rollins had a good night on Raw as he found out he’d be at WrestleMania but after the show, the star lost a match in mere seconds before quickly atoning for his defeat.
After failing in his quest to unseat Kevin Owens and AJ Styles from their respective WrestleMania duties in recent weeks Rollins was summoned to a meeting with Vince McMahon with footage of that tête-à-tête being shown on Raw.
Rollins then ran down a list of punishments he thought he was going to get before McMahon cut to the chase. The WWE Chairman said that he didn’t bring Rollins into the meeting to fire him, but pointed to his failures in recent weeks. But more importantly, he said that if he wanted to be part of WrestleMania, all he had to do was ask.
McMahon then explained that if the former World Champion was on the show he would need his own special main event. At this, he confirmed that Rollins would have a WrestleMania match, although he will only find out the identity of his opponent when he’s in the ring. Furthermore, the opponent will be hand-picked by McMahon with many speculating Rollins’ WrestleMania dream will quickly turn into an American Nightmare.
Raw ended with RK-Bro standing tall after defeating SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos by disqualification in a match marred by interference.
When the cameras stopped rolling, the fans in Pittsburgh got a little more action as Austin Theory came to the ring to challenge RK-Bro before introducing Rollins as his tag team partner. The match lasted seconds as Riddle quickly overcame Theory.
An embarrassed Austin Theory then took his frustrations out on his short-lived tag team partner, challenging Rollins to a match. Seth Rollins obliged and after a quick Pedigree, Theory had lost again.
