Seth Rollins Won’t Be Pulling Double Duty At WWE Crown Jewel


Seth Rollins is only working one match.

It turns out that WWE Universal Champion Seth Rollins won’t have to wrestle twice in one afternoon after all. 

Rollins had been previously announced as the captain of Team Hogan against Team Flair at the Crown Jewel PPV event. Fast forward to Monday night during Raw, it was announced that he would have a rematch against Bray Wyatt for the Universal Championship with a Falls Count Anywhere stipulation at this same show. 

Dave Meltzer reported on that Rollins at this point is only scheduled to work one match on the event, which is his title defense.

As of this writing, Rollins is no longer scheduled for the five vs. five match and that his removal will likely be addressed on television over the next week. There’s also no word yet on who will replace him as team captain.

So far, Rusev and Ricochet have been announced alongside Rollins for Team Hogan while Randy Orton, Baron Corbin, Bobby Lashley, and Shinsuke Nakamura have been confirmed as part of Team Flair. 

WWE will be announcing more stars for the match in the coming weeks. This wouldn’t have been the first time this year that Rollins had to work two matches in one night as he did at the Clash of Champions pay-per-view event. 

He worked a tag team title match alongside Braun Strowman and then the two faced off in the headliner of the show.
