Former WWE United States Champions Bobby Lashley and Seth Rollins will lock up next week on Raw to determine the #1 contender for Austin Theory's US title.
The two superstars have been locked in a rivalry for a while now, with Rollins beating Lashley for the title in October, and Bobby playing a role in a couple of his defenses, including a triple threat at Survivor Series where Seth lost the title to Theory after a Lashley spear.
This Monday night, Rollins and Lashley sparred verbally and physically, with Seth taking shots at Bobby for losing to Brock Lesnar, triggering a brawl that saw Lashley accidentally spear producer Petey Williams.
What nullifies all of this was the realization that Mustafa Ali just simply talked his way into a US title match on the same episode, which makes you wonder who's the smart person here: the guys who fight each other repeatedly to earn the right to challenge for the title, or the guy who eggs the champ on backstage until he gets a title match?
Either way, Rollins/Lashley should be - as the kids say - a banger next week.
