10. Seth Rollins Will Be A Multi-Time, Long-Reign Champion
Seth Rollins cashing in his MiTB briefcase at WrestleMania 31 was one of the most shocking moments in recent memory.
This victory is symbolic of how much faith WWE management, and especially Triple H, has in the 28-year-old champion. Rollins is an impressive and well-rounded wrestler whose current character is doing a great job in garnering boos from the crowd. However, given his incredible skill, he would also make an excellent face character as well, should that direction appear somewhere down the road.
Seth isn’t likely to be one of those ‘transitional champions’ that have held the World Title in between long babyface reigns, like Ivan Koloff. Instead, by 2020, Rollins will have held the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at least three times, and each reign will have been at least five or six months long. He has already shown that he can put on excellent main event matches, and is slowly becoming an even bigger draw for WWE.
Therefore, you should get used to seeing Rollins holding the WWE’s top belt; it’s going to be a common sight over the course of the next five years. The man is a certified main eventer, and his versatility and amazing wrestling skills will lead to some very exciting matches and storylines.
