Seth Rollins def. Bobby Lashley (WWE World Cup First-Round Match)

Seth Rollins def. Bobby Lashley (WWE World Cup First-Round Match)

Looking to clear his head and begin anew following the collapse of The Shield and the betrayal of Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins took one step closer to being named the best in the world by toppling Bobby Lashley in a WWE World Cup First-Round Match.

With hype man Lio Rush cheering him on, Lashley showed awe-inspiring aggression, rocking The Architect with a brutal slam in the early going. Rollins struggled to regain his bearings for minutes afterward, allowing Lashley to continue his powerful onslaught. Even when The Kingslayer scored some offense, landing back-to-back suicide dives against The Rocky Mountain-Made Machine, he still showed the effects.

Lashley tried repeatedly to put Rollins away, but the reigning Intercontinental and Raw Tag Team Champion had resiliency on his side, as well as a distinct speed advantage. The latter attribute came into play when Rollins leapfrogged over a charging Lashley and suddenly walloped him with the Stomp to claim the pinfall victory and advance to the Semifinals.
