Everybody knows that Seth Rollins is Mr. Money in the Bank, but what everybody doesn’t know is when Rollins will actually cash in the MITB briefcase. Well, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer speculates that WWE could be having Rollins win the championship in the very near future.
WWE’s plan could be to have Rollins cash in his briefcase on the winner of the John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar match. There’s speculation that because Brock Lesnar is likely leaving WWE after WrestleMania 31, WWE could have him drop that WWE championship to John Cena at the Royal Rumble event in January, which could lead to a Seth Rollins cash in immediately after the match.
The finish of the Brock Lesnar vs. John Cena match could see Cena winning, and Lesnar destroying Cena after the match, which would lead to Seth Rollins running down to the ring, and cashing in successfully on John Cena. Then, if Cena wants a rematch, it could lead to Rollins telling Cena that he’ll only give him a rematch for the title if Cena reinstates The Authority.
The John Cena vs. Seth Rollins rematch for the WWE championship would likely take place at WWE’s February pay-per-view, Fast Lane, with the winner defending the title against Roman Reigns in the main event of WrestleMania 31.
When WWE puts the championship on Roman Reigns, it’s likely that they won’t take it off of him for a long, long time. In fact, there is word that they may keep the title on Reigns longer than they kept the title on CM Punk. So, if Rollins is to cash in, and cash in successfully, he’ll do so before WrestleMania. If he doesn’t, then it’s very likely that he’ll cash in and fail.
There was a rumor that Seth Rollins would be cashing in his Money in the Bank contract during last week’s RAW, however, he ended up shaking hands with Paul Heyman instead, forming some kind of alliance between Rollins, Heyman and Lesnar that could come into play at some point in the near-future.
As of right now, WWE is considering a number of different things to do for the WrestleMania 31 main event. The most obvious idea that they’re considering is Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns, however, they’re also considering Seth Rollins vs. Roman Reigns, and John Cena vs. Roman Reigns.
One thing is for sure, and that’s that WWE is planning to have Roman Reigns walk out of WrestleMania as the new WWE champion, regardless of who his opponent is.
