Seth Rollins defeated Triple H, but unfinished business looms on the horizon.
The Architect will go one-on-one with Triple H’s handpicked enforcer, Samoa Joe, at WWE Payback, just months after the two-time NXT Champion injured Rollins’ knee and nearly put him on the shelf for his second consecutive WrestleMania.
While Rollins seemed to believe that his defeat of The Game at The Ultimate Thrill Ride would lead to an emancipation of sorts, Joe quickly re-emerged to assert himself. The Samoan Submission Machine both battled Rollins in a tag team match the night after WrestleMania and attacked the former WWE Champion after Raw General Manager Kurt Angle revealed he would not be trading The Architect to SmackDown LIVE despite the wishes of Raw Commissioner Stephanie McMahon.
The news was then broken before the April 17 edition of Raw that Angle had sanctioned a one-on-one match between the two Superstars at WWE Payback. While Rollins has proven he can survive against long odds before, whether he can survive this one as his knee still recovers remains to be seen.
Prediction…despite wanting Rollins to win this, I get the feeling their either setting up a feud with Samoa Joe to run for this year or Triple H could come back to continue the feud or even come back to cost Rollins the match, either way my pick is for Samoa Joe
