Seth Rollins took to Twitter on Saturday with a screenshot of a text from Vince McMahon, specifying that the WWE Chairman has plans for the former WWE Champion at WrestleMania 38. Rollins' storyline on Raw for the past couple of weeks has actually been his repeated failed efforts at earning a match at WrestleMania, from failing to win the Raw Tag Team Championships to losing to both Kevin Owens and AJ Styles in attempts to take their spots on the show. Every backstage report has Rollins vs. a returning Cody Rhodes booked for the show, however there have only been minor nods to that on television.
" Seth: Someone from my office is going to be reaching out to you to establish a meeting at corporate offices. I want you in my office at 9 a.m. on Monday," McMahon's text read.
In spite of the reports, neither Rhodes nor WWE have said anything main about him re-signing with the company a little over a month after he departed from AEW. The leading theory now is that he'll come to WrestleMania as a surprise similar to the Hardy Boyz at WrestleMania 33 or the John Cena vs. Undertaker match at WrestleMania 34.
" I have many turning points and beautiful memories of this renaissance through sweat, blood, tears, actual fire, and all that. I left everything on the mat," Rhodes composed at the end of his goodbye speech when his AEW departure was announced. "Everything pales in comparison to the final contribution I was empowered to lead at the business, the community outreach team. In the most inward minutes, your external behavior and your ability to take fame/influence and do something of value for the communities you check out (whether the electronic cameras are on or off) is the greatest honor.
I am positive Amanda Huber will lead the department with style. I'm so happy with my creations and contributions and the products I supported or collaborated on with such terrific experts. Thank you, fans. Y' all did the work! Let's live forever.".
Night One of WrestleMania 38 is presently headlined by a KO Show segment featuring "Stone Cold" Steve Austin and a SmackDown Women's Championship match between Charlotte Flair and Ronda Rousey. Night Two will have a unification match for both the WWE and Universal Championships between Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar.
