Seth Rollins is set to face A.J. Styles in a match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WWE Night of Champions this weekend. However, it has been revealed that there were discussions within WWE about potentially having Rollins go into WrestleMania 39 as the champion.

While the exact plans were not disclosed, Fightful Select reported that Rollins was being considered as a potential champion for the event. Ultimately, WWE decided against splitting the belts, leading to Rollins’ current match against Styles.

Speculation arose when it was reported that Rollins had started filming for “Captain America: New World Order.” Some believed this meant he would not win the World Heavyweight Championship, as WWE might be hesitant to put him in prominent positions due to his film commitments. Additionally, the fact that Rollins had pre-taped his segments for consecutive episodes of RAW fueled further speculation.

However, as Ringside News exclusively reported, officials within WWE vehemently denied these rumors and dismissed the idea that Rollins’ film commitments would negatively impact his wrestling career. They stated that they were aware of the situation and that Rollins had already completed filming. Plans were in place to address his absence through sit-down interviews, and they assured that it was full speed ahead for Rollins.


Regarding his film role and potential future opportunities, WWE officials emphasized that viewing it as anything but positive would be unrealistic. They expressed confidence in Rollins’ ability to balance both his film career and his commitments to WWE.

As fans eagerly await the Night of Champions match between Rollins and Styles, it’s clear that WWE remains supportive of Rollins’ diverse endeavors and remains focused on his continued success within the company.

How do you think Seth Rollins’ film commitments will impact his wrestling career in the long run, and do you believe he can successfully balance both his film career and his commitments to WWE? Leave a comment.
