Seth Rollins is the Visionary of WWE and has constantly delivered in each and every feud he has been a part of. Rollins is the WWE World Heavyweight Champion and is already a great champion. An open challenge segment with Rollins was supposed to take place on RAW this week but it appears Vince McMahon nixed it for a good reason.

As seen on this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW, the show kicked off with Seth Rollins appearing and many believed there was going to be another open challenge. However, that did not happen at all.

Instead, Finn Balor blindsided Seth Rollins and destroyed him outside the ring and all the way into the back as well. As previously reported, Vince McMahon did make drastic changes for RAW this week.

While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer talked about Vince McMahon nixing the open challenge segment. Meltzer noted that McMahon ultimately wanted to do something bigger for Seth Rollins and Finn Balor.


“The open challenge was supposed to happen till the last minute. Vince changed… the first 30 minutes of the show, I heard, was totally changed.

Vince really wanted this… the whole Seth Rollins angle with Finn Balor, I think he just wanted something big, something bigger for Seth Rollins and Finn Balor, just to heat up Finn Balor.

To be fair, I know people who are there who told me, ‘Look, as far as the 30 minutes that Vince put in, it was better than the 30 minutes that was taken out’.”

Seth Rollins will be defending his WWE World Heavyweight Champion against Finn Balor at the Money In The Bank Premium Live Event. We will have to wait and see whether Rollins will be able to end up retaining the title.
