Reportedly, WWE has big plans for intercontinental champion Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 35 in April.
According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter (h / t Marc Middleton of WrestlingInc.com), the current plan is for Rollins to face the universal champion Brock Lesnar in the Showcase of the Immortals.
Rollins is in the middle of a fight with Shield's former partner, Dean Ambrose, after Ambrose turned on him and disbanded The Shield.
With Rollins scheduled to face Ambrose on TLC, Meltzer's report suggests that The Architect can drop the IC title to Ambrose before competing for the universal title against Lesnar.
Rollins and Lesnar have a lot of history, from when they met in a Triple Threat combat that also included John Cena in The Royal Rumble 2015.
Two months later, Rollins cashed his Money in the Bank contract during a WWE Championship game between Lesnar and Roman Reigns in the WrestleMania 31 main event. Rollins won that game by pinning Reigns to become WWE champion. first time.
Lesnar had his revenge four months later in Battleground, but the fight barely started before The Undertaker interfered and attacked The Beast Incarnate.
After Lesnar's excellent match against WWE champion Daniel Bryan in Survivor Series on Sunday, there are reasons to believe that he and Rollins could knock the house down on the biggest stage of them all.
If Rollins vs. Lesnar is planned for WrestleMania, Rollins may be the favorite to win the Royal Rumble for the first time in his career.
