Seth Rollins has achieved almost every title in his life. With WrestleMania 39 approaching, WWE is planning for Seth’s WrestleMania match. Recently, Rollins has expressed that he should be in the main event of WrestleMania. Rollins was in the main event of WrestleMania in 2015 when he cashed in his money in the bank contract. The match was supposed to be a title match between Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar, but by cashing in his MITB contract, Rollins made it a Triple Threat match.


WWE can put Rollins in a match at WrestleMania 39 against the American Nightmare, Cody Rhodes, who made his shocking return at last year’s WrestleMania. Both of the superstars have a long history since then, which WWE can carry on. Cody Rhodes is out of action for a long time right now after a tough battle with Rollins at Hell in a Cell. Cody eventually won the match with a torn pectoral muscle and proved to everyone what he could do when he was determined. It is possible that they will face off once more at the grandest spectacle of all, WrestleMania. Fans have to wait a little longer to see what happens to the stories of The American Nightmare, Cody Rhodes, and The Visionary, Seth Freaking Rollins.
