Seth Rollins was very close to walking out of last Monday’s Raw with three belts: the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, the United States Championship and the Intercontinental Championship. The WWE creative team had at one point planned for Rollins to capture the Intercontinental Championship from Ryback on Raw and go on to wrestle three times at Night of Champions.
Triple H made the call to cancel plans for the Intercontinental Championship changing hands on Monday, but the angle is still being considered. From the perspective of WWE’s Executive Vice President, Talent, Live Events and Creative, he isn’t completely sold on the angle and feels Rollins defending three times at Night of Champions would be overkill.
Ryback scored a pinfall victory over Rollins on Raw to set up a potential Title vs. Title Match (Rollins’ Intercontinental Championship would be on the line against Ryback’s Intercontinental Championship), which is being considered for a future pay-per-view or WWE Network special event.
