The Epic Saga of Roman Reigns Vs Seth Rollins: A Tale of Brotherhood, Betrayal And Redemption

3 months ago By Jhon Woug

Among all the stories, the one that never fails to hypnotise viewers’ eyes is the permanent feud between Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins. Risen from the cradles of The Shield as archenemies later, they grew from careful siblings into mortal combatants. The eras that they have choreographed and the plot of their career have defined a whole generation of wrestling fans, and the story continues to evolve as each chapter unfolds.

The groundwork for this epic rivalry was set way ahead of the Shield, who came on the scene as a destructive force in World Wrestling Entertainment, ransacking anyone who cared to cross their way. While ‘The Shield’, comprising Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, and Dean Ambrose (who held the championship belt numerous times), fought against the best of the best to emerge triumphant,.

‘The good always ends, and the Shield’s story too had a brush with the end’. The unraveling of their unity started to manifest itself when egos collided and personal visions got out of sync. It was Rollins who took the lead, beginning with a low blow that occurred during a seemingly innocent brothers-to-beloved-cops promotion that went fatally wrong.

In the green room, moments after the shocker of Rollins’s betrayal echoed throughout WWE, the ground was already being paved for a rivalry that would place one of them firmly on top. Heavily frustrated and rightfully indignant, he made his ex-brother-in-arms, who conspired with others and set apart their fraternity, his new target. The only thing he had in mind was to buy vengeance.

As their scenarios got more and more entangled, everyone’s tradeoffs became more personal and explicit. From nerve-wracking battles in the ring to hide-and-seek altercations backstage, Reigns and Rollins were putting up a relentless fight to win supremacy. Each of them was ready to go the whole hog and not give up.

Yet, it was their collision at WrestleMania 31 that would outline and remain engraved forever in the annals of the most storied profession. Sensing an opportunity to capitalise on his Money in the Bank contract, Rollins cashed it in during the course of the title match. His thievery of the WWE World Heavyweight Championship was nothing short of a shocker, as Rollins managed to steal it from Reigns under the guise of a real winner.

The sounds from that dreaded night will stay with Reigns and Rollins forever, as their rivalry intensifies and enkindles their hatred with every single moment of their next meeting. It was a rivalry that went beyond the boundaries of the wrestling ring, as fans watched on-screen and off-screen collisions in all types of combat, from title fights to pitiless street wars, which made all wrestling programmes just amazing.

However, the monster heel that Reigns became was a daunting villain to Rollins as a tweener, yet their rivalry was filled with obvious respect. Shouldered by their divergent traits and the disloyalty that divided them as brothers who had fought together earlier, there was an acknowledgement of the primary importance of the link that brought them together.

It would not be the first time this bond was tangible, and it was evident as soon as WrestleMania 40 caused a head-on collision between them and their destiny. On WWE Universe, the contenders for the World Heavyweight Championship and their legacies became one of the main topics. With the stage set for a great matchup, it looked like the final war between two of the most successful competitors of all time was about to happen.

There is no doubt that the story of the ring was nothing but the best. Two gladiators not only exposed their raw courage but also themselves to the bouts in an attempt to snatch the opportunity of the frown. And that’s what they did coolly: from the side bell to the final ball, Reigns and Rollins took everything they had in the ring to give an outstanding show that is certainly to be remembered for many, many years.

However, it was the finishing that caught all their sets. In the time of his success, Reigns was caught in between thoughts, something that allowed him to heave a personal vendetta against Rowlins to take place of his logical judgment. His doubts made a tunnel of time, through which Rollins magically floated and picked the moment of the decisive strike that reversed the whole token and stole the win away.

With his back to the canvas in front of the ring, after bitterly losing against a friend (betrayal) just again, Rollins caught the king’s crown from the air and became the World Heavyweight Champion. However, even if bitterness was the climax of their defeat, there was a feeling of closure with the finality of their saga, like they had finally closed a chapter.

Or so it seemed.

Indeed, in the arena of pro wrestling, where alliances are formed or outdone in one swift blow, the show never comes to an end. As Reigns and Rollins bid farewell, their paths couldn’t help but be joined together, and they crossed paths once more in writing the next episode of their legendary rivalry.

A futile attempt by fans to explore more and more about this story of one against another—Roman Reigns. Seth Rollins, one thing is certain: through the fierce rivalry between the two houses waged in the Battle of The Gates, the ties might have been destroyed, but the heritage of their conflict would be a long-lasting legacy to the generations of men to come.
