He’s back! After a six month absence from the WWE, Seth Rollins made his much-anticipated return to the ring at Extreme Rules on May 22 — and totally took down Roman Reigns in the process! Watch the epic video right here!
Seth Rollins is officially back to claim what’s rightfully his! The 29-year-old WWE Superstar made his comeback in a major way at the very end of WWE Extreme Rules 2016. He didn’t just surprise everyone by showing up unannounced. Seth showed Roman Reigns, that he deserves another chance at the championship belt!
The main event between Roman Reigns and AJ Styles was one epic Extreme Rules match-up, but once Roman retained his title, he was quickly attacked and pedigreed by the returning Seth Rollins. Seth wasted no time attacking his former tag partner and immediately began taking everything out on Roman, hardly even giving the WWE Champion a chance to retaliate as he laid out the champ with a pedigree! As if the crowd wasn’t already excited, Seth took the WWE World Heavyweight Championship belt right from Roman and hoisted it proudly in the air! Claiming that he was back and wanted what is in his eyes rightfully his property!
Seth had to forfeit the WWE Championship due to an injury back in November, so it wasn’t super shocking to see him so ruthlessly attack Roman to get his name back in the world title picture. Seth tore his ACL, MCL, and medial meniscus in one of his knees on November 4, 2015, at a WWE Live event in Dublin. Upon finding out that it would take months until he would be able to fight again, Seth had to vacate the world title that he had carried for 220 days at that point. No wonder he came back with such a vengeance on May 22! Watch his amazing return and pedigree on Roman below:

It’s unclear what Seth’s next match will be now that he’s clearly well enough to take opponents down once again but it most likely will be Roman Reigns. And the wrestling world is more than excited to have him back!
