Numerous professional wrestling stars, including Big E, expressed their acknowledgment of the champion in the comments section. Now, the primary question emerges: Who will emerge as the inaugural challenger for Seth Rollins’ WWE World Heavyweight Championship?
Who will challenge Rollins?
When it comes to identifying the first challenger, the list is extensive. In a recent interview, Seth Rollins expressed his openness to facing any wrestler in the WWE for the championship, including those from SmackDown and NXT. This implies that the WWE Universe can anticipate the arrival of a new competitor on the main rosters.
Additionally, Dave Meltzer has reported that the formidable Brock Lesnar could potentially emerge as a challenger for Rollins’ championship. It is speculated that Lesnar’s victory over Cody Rhodes at Champions was solely to prevent him from suffering consecutive losses.
Furthermore, the highly popular WWE stable, ‘The Judgement Day,’ has also expressed interest in the open challenge. Hence, both Finn Balor and Damian Priest have been considered as potential contenders. Regardless of who becomes the first challenger, one thing is certain: fans will finally witness a world title defense on Raw after a substantial duration.
