That’s a first. Titles are often the most important things in a wrestling promotion and it makes sense why. The top stars in the company are often in the title picture and a wrestler vying for one of them can make the title seem that much more important. That is true whether the title has been around for a long time or is brand new, and now one WWE star is doing something never before done with a new title.

Next weekend at WWE Night Of Champions, Seth Rollins will face AJ Styles for the inaugural World Heavyweight Championship. This will make Rollins the first wrestler in WWE history to compete for three inaugural titles. Rollins previous defeated Jinder Mahal to win the first NXT Title in 2012 and lost to Finn Balor for the first Universal Title at Summerslam 2016. Night Of Champions is scheduled to take place in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on May 27.
Rollins has had a busy career. Check out his two previous title matches and how he got to this one:
Opinion: This is one of those things where it could be a coincidence, but it could also be WWE understanding that Rollins has that kind of talent. WWE knows that Rollins is going to be able to make anything work in the ring so having him in one title match after another is not a bad thing. Now just have the title match go that well again and everything should be fine, which shouldn’t be that difficult given the title involved.
What do you think of the title match? Why is Rollins in this spot so often? Let us know in the comments below.
