Seth Rollins was the man who came up with the idea to cash-in his Money In The Bank contract during the main event of WrestleMania 31.
Could you imagine being so new to the main event scene and suggesting this? Seth Rollins is a fearless man.
The Architect appeared on Edge and Christian’s Pod Of Awesomeness yesterday and told of how fan reaction to the initial Roman Reigns push through 2014 into the early months of 2015 forced his hand: “The crowd were doing what they were doing with Roman and I just saw this – felt this thing, this energy,” Rollins said.
“I saw it coming. I knew they were gonna kinda take a dump on him when he won the Rumble and they did and I remember the next day and again having the conversation with Hunter again because I had pitched the idea near the end of the year before.
“I just wanted to remind him that I had his idea on the table and I think it’s a pretty good one. Even if it’s not the idea it could easily be a contingency plan if the main event of WrestleMania doesn’t go together how you see it.
“So even in the back of your head… yeah, I pitched the idea and I strongly felt like it was a good one and I felt like I was the guy and again I went up to them and said ‘I want the ball,’ you know?”
Rollins, of course, would turn The Big Dog vs. Brock Lesnar singles match into a triple threat before pinning his then-former Shield partner to give us one of the best WrestleMania Moments of recent times.
