WWE Summerslam is still nearly a month away and we already have 3 matches that have been announced, and the feuds too kicked off recently. While 2 of these matches involve Championships, the other one is a non-title.
Seth Rollins will be going against the Rated R-Superstar Edge. While Edge is one of the most successful Superstars at the WWE Summerslam, Rollins himself has a boastful record. He has appeared at the event 7 times in his career, and has won on 6 of these occasions.
The first of these appearances was in 2014, when he defeated his former Shield member Dean Ambrose in a Lumberjack match. Next year, he faced John Cena in a Champion vs Champion match, and emerged victorious.
The undefeated streak came to an end in 2016, when he was defeated by Finn Balor, to become the inaugural WWE Universal Champion. The next year, Rollins was back to his winning ways, as he teamed up with Dean Ambrose, to defeat Cesaro and Sheamus. The team also became the Raw Tag Team Champions.
In 2018, Rollins again picked up another Championship win when he defeated Dolph Ziggler, followed by a win against Brock Lesnar. His final performance came in 2020, when he defeated a debuting Dominik Mysterio.
Seth Rollins will face Edge at WWE Summerslam 2021
On the night of WWE Money in the Bank, the PPV preceding Summerslam, Rollins made it clear that he is after Edge. The Rated R Superstar was involved in a Universal Championship match against Roman Reigns. But Rollins attacked Edge, setting up a match for WWE Summerslam.
Rollins has publicly announced the fact that he needs to earn opportunities, whereas Superstars like Edge just jump the line and take them. But Rollins wants to prove a point that their time is over. WWE Summerslam airs live on 21st August 2021.
