• Update On The Man Behind Seth Rollins’ Main Event Push
Men’s Royal Rumble 2019 winner Seth Rollins will face “The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship at WrestleMania 35.
According to WrestleVotes, Triple H is the man responsible for Rollins’ main event push ahead of WrestleMania 35.
Catching up on RAW as we were in the air last night, but the emotion in the opening segment between Rollins & Triple H was real. This renewed Rollins push, and the decision for him to main event Mania was very much Hunters call. The Game is going “all in” w/ Rollins.

This was originally reported by The Dirty Sheets back in December 2018. Back in December, Vince McMahon & Triple H had different ideas regarding who they want to see as Universal Champion after WrestleMania 35.
Vince McMahon wanted Braun Strowman to walk into WrestleMania 35 as the Universal Champion and drop the Title to Drew McIntyre.
On the other hand, Triple H wanted Brock Lesnar to walk into WrestleMania 35 as the Universal Champion and have Seth Rollins defeat him to win the Title. Triple H believes Rollins can fill the void that Roman Reigns’ departure has created and that’s why HHH is keen on saving the big win over Lesnar for Rollins.
