Both Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins made their debut in 2012 as part of the villainous faction, The Shield. Although they started off on the same side, they eventually parted ways after Rollins attacked Reigns in 2016. This led to an on-and-off feud between the two until they got drafted to opposite brands. Post that each superstar has become the Top Dawg on their respective brand, also holding the main championship there.

But on his recent appearance on the podcast After The Bell, Rollins expressed his concern over Reigns not representing the title that much. He said, “I feel like we’ve done a really good job, as far as the World Heavyweight Championship is concerned…The one thing that I think doesn’t get talked about or I think flies under the radar a little bit and I don’t mean this as a knock on Roman’s schedule of choice or anything like that but the actual visibility of the championships. And I mean physically seeing the title in person, on graphics on tv every week. It almost feels like Roman Reigns is the championship as opposed to Roman Reigns is the champion”

He also went on to say that, as opposed to Reigns, he represents the title every week. He added, “Whereas Seth Rollins is wearing the world heavyweight championship belt, I’m representing the world heavyweight championship. The work never ends man”.

In spite of being really good friends with Reigns, Rollins didn’t hold back his words. And to think of it, Rollins is quite right, because while Roman Reigns doesn’t have a match lined up for Payback, Rollins will be defending his championship.
