• Seth Rollins Reveals Original Plan For His WrestleMania 35 Match Against Brock Lesnar
During a recent WWE 365 episode on Seth Rollins, Rollins revealed that his match with Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship at WrestleMania 35 was originally scheduled to be the second-last match of the night, but Paul Heyman ended up changing the plan at the last moment.
Below is what Rollins said:
“In a weird way it was cool because it allowed me to just centre my focus. I didn’t have to deal with any of the distractions that you normally do with WrestleMania, and I didn’t have to get inside my own head, overthink the match, overthink the performance, all that stuff. It was just…I had to go out there and do me, which I’m pretty good at.”
