The blue brand was booming at the Golden 1 Centre in Sacramento, California. Naturally, the special highlight of the evening was only visible to the ones in the arena.

In a dream match, worthy of a main event at WrestleMania, Rollins and Gunther delivered a fantastic performance. Unfortunately, the match ended up in a disqualification due to an attack from the Imperium on ‘The Visionary’. 

But the aftermath was the most talked about moment. In a stunning segment, the 37-year-old champion paid homage to the late Bray Wyatt. In the video below posted by FADE, we also see the superstar asking everyone to join in to remember the iconic superstar.

This is truly surreal considering how Rollins has always maintained that he has limited friends in the industry. His celebration of Wyatt’s accomplishments is a testament to the late wrestler’s legacy and demonstrates Rollins’ character. Interestingly, this isn’t the first time he has paid tribute to Wyatt.

The respect Rollins has for Wyatt

‘The Architect’ has time and again shown his respect for the 36-year-old. A few weeks back, Rollins opened the show wearing a WINDHAM armband and chanted Wyatt’s classic catchphrase. He also paid tribute to him by changing the side plates of his belt.
