After outlasting 29 other Superstars to emerge victorious in the 2019 Men’s Royal Rumble Match, Seth Rollins has chosen to challenge Universal Champion Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 35.
Less than 24 hours after Rollins’ Royal Rumble victory, COO Triple H told the determined Superstar to choose which World Champion he would face by the end of that night’s episode of Monday Night Raw. However, when The Architect stormed the ring to ignite a brawl with Lesnar later that evening, the unrelenting titleholder leveled him with six F-5s, the last of which came after Rollins screamed “Is that all you got?!” in the champion’s direction.
Despite this onslaught, however, WWE.com soon learned that Rollins would indeed select Lesnar as his opponent and dare to journey into the realm of The Beast at The Showcase of the Immortals in search of his first Universal Title.
This will not be the first time that Rollins has battled Lesnar for a World Title on The Grandest Stage of Them All. At WrestleMania 31, The Architect cashed in his Money in the Bank contract to turn Lesnar’s title defense against Roman Reigns into an impromptu Triple Threat Match, and he delivered a thunderous Stomp to The Big Dog to seize the victory and walk out of the main event with the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in one of the most unforgettable WrestleMania endings of all time.
Rollins has stolen the show countless times over the past year, throwing down in several instant classics and dazzling the WWE Universe with his jaw-dropping athleticism and tenacity, but does the Royal Rumble winner have it in him to overcome The Conqueror and capture the Universal Championship?
Although Lesnar often comes under fire for his part-time schedule, he is nevertheless a frighteningly destructive force of nature who has taken down virtually every WWE Superstar, often in a grisly one-sided onslaught.
Find out who will reign supreme at WrestleMania 35, streaming live on Sunday, April 7, at 7 ET/4 PT on the award-winning WWE Network!
