Seth Rollins has been involved in a heated rivalry with Austin Theory over the United States Championship for several weeks. The men have been at each other’s throats ever since and there doesn’t seem to be any signs of either man letting up. Rollins recently faced the US Champion at a live event.

WWE held a live event in Champaign, IL recently. During the live event, Rollins faced off against his long-time nemesis Austin Theory again for the US Title. However, one incident from the match caught everyone’s attention.

A clip has been circulating online from the match where Rollins is facing Austin Theory. In the clip, both men battle on the floor outside the ring. Rollins then catches Theory’s arms and asks a kid in the audience to punch Theory. The kid gives Theory a slight jab which the US Champion sells as Seth celebrates with the kid.

Despite getting help from the young fan, Austin Theory was able to successfully retain his United States Title against Seth Rollins. This is Rollins’ first match against Theory since their match at WWE Elimination Chamber which Theory won.


This sort of fan engagement is what made Rollins one of the most popular stars on the WWE roster. Although Rollins hasn’t won many titles since his gimmick changed many years ago, he is still adored by young fans across the world. Stay tuned to Ringside News as we bring you similar stories.
