Seth Rollins managed to infiltrate Bray Wyatt‘s Firefly Fun House on Monday night after The Universal Champion made the decision to take the fight to The Fiend. This later led to the announcement that Rollins would be defending his Championship against The Fiend once again at WWE Crown Jewel with the added Falls Count Anywhere stipulation.

Rollins already had a match at Crown Jewel, since it was revealed that The Architect would be the captain of Team Hogan in his five on five tag team match against Team Flair.

The fact that Rollins now has a match against The Fiend to look forward to means that he shouldn’t be pulling double duty as part of the show.

According to a report by The Wrestling Observer, Seth Rollins won’t be wrestling twice on October 31st and is instead expected to be replaced as captain of Team Hogan. The teams currently consist of Seth Rollins, Ricochet and Rusev up against Bobby Lashley, Shinsuke Nakamura, Baron Corbin, and Randy Orton.

Dave Meltzer went on to reveal that WWE’s current plan isn’t for Seth Rollins to turn heel in the near future, even though it appeared to be going that way when he faced The Fiend at Hell in a Cell and burned down his Fun House this past week on Raw.

A heel turn could have helped Rollins given the fact that he is facing one of the most popular stars in the company at present, but this obviously isn’t WWE’s current plan for their Universal Champion.

This means that it’s likely that Rollins will be walking out of Crown Jewel with his Universal Championship, especially since Bray Wyatt was moved over to Friday Night SmackDown as part of the draft and the Universal Championship has remained on Raw since it was introduced back in 2016.
