Seth Rollins vs. AJ Styles (Universal Championship)



Quote:
After Seth Rollins conquered The Beast at WrestleMania to claim the Universal Championship, two-time WWE Champion AJ Styles moved over to Raw via the 2019 Superstar Shake-up and emerged as the next challenger.

By overcoming the full fury of the nearly unbeatable Brock Lesnar on The Grandest Stage of Them All, The Architect showed the WWE Universe that he’s at the top of his game. Rollins had little time to celebrate his jaw-dropping victory, however, as several Raw newcomers and mainstays immediately locked Rollins in their crosshairs after the Shake-up. And out of the many would come something Phenomenal.

After confronting the Universal Champion along with several other Team Red Superstars, The Phenomenal One inched closer to a title bout by overcoming Rey Mysterio and Samoa Joe in a Triple Threat Match on the April 22 edition of the red brand.

Then, after Baron Corbin defeated The Miz and Drew McIntyre in a second Triple Threat Match, Styles bested The Lone Wolf in the same evening to earn the right to face Rollins for the Universal Title at WWE Money in the Bank.

A highly anticipated showdown between the two decorated Superstars promises to produce something truly special, as both come equipped with a unique, highly-effective arsenal and a desire to win at all costs.

Find out who will prevail as Universal Champion in the first-time-ever matchup at WWE Money in the Bank, Sunday, May 19, at 7 ET/4 PT on the award-winning WWE Network.

Re: Seth Rollins vs. AJ Styles (Universal Championship)

Surprised to see this match happen at MITB and not SS.. But nonetheless, should be a MOTY contender.

Earlier than I would have liked, but it's a money match (no pun intended) no doubt. Extremely excited for it

Re: Seth Rollins vs. AJ Styles (Universal Championship)

Surely a heel turn coming?

Makes no sense to do it right away otherwise, still then you have Seth lose in his first defence?

Re: Seth Rollins vs. AJ Styles (Universal Championship)

Kinda want AJ to just turn heel and win, but I highly doubt they go that direction.

Should be a great match, but as I and many had predicted, leave it to WWE to hot shot the fuck out of matches.

If they're doing it this soon, my guess is that this is going to be a feud that continues for a few months. They have their face vs face match at MITB, then in the weeks after MITB Styles turns and it culminates in a face Rollins vs heel Styles match at Summerlam. Something to that extent.

I'm all for them doing a long term feud between Styles and Rollins. I just pray they book it to it's potential and that it doesn't become another Styles vs Nakamura situation.

Re: Seth Rollins vs. AJ Styles (Universal Championship)

Ever since 2010 MitB has been consistently one if their best ppvs. Hell they booked Roman vs Seth at MitB. So no doubt this should be a good match. But I am curious as to what they will do at Summerslam. My guess is McIntyre vs Rollins with Drew winning.

Re: Seth Rollins vs. AJ Styles (Universal Championship)

Who else is there really for Rollins to feud with? He needs a credible challenger out the gate. This will likely continue through SummerSlam anyway because there is literally nobody else worth a damn for Rollins to feud with right now.
