The newly crowned World Heavyweight Champ asks a simple question to the WWE Universe. Seth Rollins was crowned World Heavyweight Champion at Night of Champions, after defeating AJ Styles. This week, The Visionary continued his winning streak on Raw. The Visionary teamed up The Phenomenal to face Finn Balor from Judgment Day and Damien Priest.
WWE reintroduced the World Heavyweight Championship recently after it was unified in late 2013 with the WWE Championship. The question of whether or not the title contains its past history is still in dispute. Randy Orton was the last champion to hold a previous record. The Viper’s feud with John Cena came to an end when The Viper defeated John Cena in the title unification at TLC 2013
The 37-year old champion recently asked a question on Twitter. Rollins was curious when the World Heavyweight Championship last appeared on Raw. He was about board a plane to White Plains to attend the next WWE SuperShow.
The Visionary thinks that since Roman Reigns won Championship, title defenses are extremely rare. This was the reason behind Rollins’ question. Championships are rarely defended at live events or on weekly TV shows. The Visionary thinks it’s not a smart business move to broadcast big title defences on free TV.
Rollins asked a question that was quickly answered by fans. Others remembered that Big E had defended the title in a Raw episode against Austin Theory, late 2021. Some fans, however, believe that due to the technicality involved in the title, the last title defence was between John Cena & Damien Sandow back in 2013.
Seth Rollins will face Damian Priest next.
World Heavyweight Championships were introduced so that championships could be defended more than just at live events. Seth Rollins promised to his fans that he will be the champion of the people after winning the title. WWE and Rollins have announced the first title defence without delay.
The Visionary recently announced a challenge to the title. Damian Priest of Judgment day accepted the challenge, and will face Rollins in the next Raw episode. The episode will air live from Hartford in Connecticut. It will be the first men’s World Championship defended on Raw for years. This happened the last time in 2021.
Priest’s performance at Backlash against the Bad Bunny has made him a main event talent. Priest is a legitimate threat to Rollins. Michael Cole made the match official on Friday Night SmackDown. The match between these two stars will be very exciting.
