8 Things That Doomed Seth Rollins WWE Title Reign From The Start

8. He Cashed It In


As mentioned earlier, Seth Rollins cashed in his briefcase to become World Champion at WrestleMania. Throughout WWE history, this has been the cheapest and easiest path to the title, and one that rarely receives any respect. Furthermore, there have rarely been great post-cash in champions.

Looking back on former briefcase holders like The Miz, Alberto Del Rio, Edge, Daniel Bryan, CM Punk (the first time) Jack Swagger, and Randy Orton, those guys were booked as incredibly lucky punks who ran from fights, and ultimately lost the Championship rather quickly until they could win it in a fair fight. 

When it comes to Seth Rollins, his cash-in will be remembered as the biggest one ever, but ultimately it was hollow. The company had to invent a previously unheard of way to do it by turning the match into a triple threat.

It was the result of him being plan B to the failed ascent of Roman Reigns. While jubilation filled the hardcore community when Rollins got the nod, his future prospects dimmed following the initial shock because WWE likely didn't plan for the rejection of Roman Reigns, thus having nothing intriguing prepared for him.
