Universal Champion Seth Rollins named Superstar of the Week
Sometimes, having the best performance of the week isn’t about having the biggest win but the best attitude. Seth Rollins didn’t necessarily shake the earth with his one victory on Raw, a grinder over Sami Zayn in the main event. But he has responded with characteristic bravery to a unique challenge: Waiting out a potential year of Brock Lesnar holding the Money in the Bank contract over his head.
Yes, thanks to Paul Heyman’s affinity for actually reading the contract, Lesnar is no longer compelled to call his shot against a World Champion and pretty gleefully implied he was going to let Rollins (or even WWE Champion Kofi Kingston) stew for as long as he felt like. That Rollins responded with even more fire in the ring is probably the biggest possible statement on how he’s going to approach this daunting challenge. It’ll only get rougher from here, but for Week 1 of the Brock Lesnar waiting game, Superstar of the Week goes to Seth Rollins.
