Seth Rollins confronted Kevin Owens
Seth Rollins was nowhere to be seen last week when Kevin Owens issued a WrestleMania challenge in the building where his WWE path began. The Monday Night Messiah more than made up for that this week in a sermon that did the impossible and left the always-brazen Owens at an apparent loss for words.
Using the silence to his advantage and turning the PC into his church, Rollins preached his gospel and recast the Performance Center as his home field, one literally built off of Rollins’ blood, sweat and hardships in the FCW Arena. As for WrestleMania, Rollins touted his almost-spotless record at The Show of Shows and ruthlessly contrasted it with Owens’ spotty history at the event, including a complete absence from last year’s card.
Under ordinary circumstances, Rollins’ insistence that he turns into “a god” under the bright lights and pressure of WrestleMania might come off as mere braggadocio. But these are not ordinary circumstances, and judging by Owens’ silent reaction, some of Rollins’ sermon seemed to have hit home.
