There’s no doubt that Seth Rollins is one of the most prominent names on the WWE roster. However, The Visionary hasn’t done much since his feud with Logan Paul at WrestleMania 39. WWE involved Rollins in a random match last week on Monday Night Raw. The 36-year-old faced The Miz in a match last week, which turned out to be an amazing match.

However, with WWE booking Rollins in a program with Omos, their storyline is likely to build up. While many fans criticized the decision, others expect the match to be full of surprises. It will be interesting to see The Nigerian Giant step up in front of one of WWE’s top stars. It will truly elevate Omos’ WWE career.
