Seth Rollins is set to face Kevin Owens at WrestleMania 36. During the build for that match KO had to not only deal with Seth Rollins, but also his disciples AOP and Murphy. There was also a heel referee along the way.
While talking to WWE The Bump, Seth Rollins put over his stable. His disciples followed him around making it much easier to be an effective heel. AOP and Murphy also have the potential to be breakout Superstars on their own, but it also doesn’t hurt to have the Architect around.
“Look, Murphy and AOP – these are guys were really hungry. They’ve been sitting on the sidelines on the Raw roster for quite some time. Murphy clawed his way up to the top in 205 Live, and has undoubtedly, had some great showings in the ring. He was just missing that one little thing, and I think that one little thing was guidance.”
“With AOP, obviously, they’re monsters. There’s no ifs, ands, or buts about it. But, there were also missing that one thing when they came over to the main roster. When they were in NXT, they had Paul Ellering, who was a guiding force towards their direction. I think I – not to compare him to myself – but, I believe I can provide those gentlemen the same type of guidance that Ellering did.”
Seth Rollins also approached the idea of finally giving his new stable a name. This might prove difficult because his quartet is now a duo after AOP were taken out of action due to Akam’s injury.
“Yeah, I have some ideas [on names]. I’ve had some cool names in the past, so we’ll see where it lands. Maybe, post-WrestleMania. But, I’ve got some things brewing.”
Murphy didn’t work WrestleMania either. Seth Rollins will reportedly go out to face Kevin Owens by himself. We’ll have to see if WWE carries on with the Monday Night Messiah’s stable, but they didn’t have the luckiest series of events recently.
