Seth Rollins shocking return points towards his clash with Gunther.

While much of the audience in Corpus Christi and those watching along at home were likely anticipating an Uncle Howdy return, the surprise that kicked off the show was Seth “Freakin'” Rollins’ return. The familiar “Burn it down!” blared over the speakers, marking Rollins’ first appearance since his loss to Cody Rhodes at WrestleMania. This return quickly reminded everyone that this was still Monday Night Rollins.

After expressing his happiness to be back, Seth Rollins got straight to the point. He made his intentions clear about reclaiming the WWE World Heavyweight Championship which he lost to Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania, and he glanced at the Money in the Bank briefcase hanging above the ring, hinting at his interest in the upcoming event. However, before Rollins could elaborate on his ambitions, current World Heavyweight Champion Damian Priest made his entrance.

Priest showed respect for Rollins but asserted that “Raw” is no longer Monday Night Rollins but rather “All Rise for El Campeon.” The two engaged in a heated exchange, with Priest reminding Rollins that he was the first to challenge for the then-newly created World Heavyweight Championship and admitted that he lost because Rollins was better at that time. Priest, however, claimed that things had changed and challenged Rollins to a championship match at Money in the Bank, bypassing any ladder match aspirations Rollins might have had.

Gunther has a guaranteed title shot at WWE SummerSlam

Gunther is one of the most dominant wrestlers in the modern era. He has been making waves in WWE since his debut. Known for his long reign as the NXT UK Champion and now as the longest-reigning Intercontinental Champion, Gunther has consistently been a top contender on any brand. His recent actions have shown his strategic approach to the World Heavyweight Championship scene.

After the King and Queen of the Ring PLE, where Gunther was crowned, he made it clear that his ultimate goal was the World Heavyweight Championship. Despite having a confrontation with Priest, Gunther has remained patient, waiting to see who would emerge as the champion after Clash at the Castle. His focus on letting Ludwig Kaiser handle his own business against Sheamus shows Gunther’s confidence in his faction, Imperium, and his strategic withdrawal from immediate conflicts to keep himself fresh for a major title shot.

By winning the King of the Ring tournament, Gunther has secured a guaranteed title shot at SummerSlam 2024. This setup is akin to the Royal Rumble winner getting a title shot at WrestleMania. With a clear path to a significant event, Gunther has avoided other feuds, likely to preserve his condition for the high-stakes match at SummerSlam.

WWE planning potential feud between The Visionary and The King General

Now, with Rollins getting a title shot against Damian Priest, speculation is rife that WWE might be setting the stage for a Rollins vs. Gunther match at SummerSlam. Rollins’ immediate challenge for the World Heavyweight Championship and Gunther’s strategic positioning for SummerSlam suggest that WWE could be planning a major showdown between these two powerhouse wrestlers.

As Rollins seeks to reclaim his former glory and Gunther prepares for his guaranteed title shot, the potential matchup between these two could be one of the most anticipated events of the summer. Fans will undoubtedly be keeping a close eye on how these storylines develop in the coming weeks. Do let us know your thoughts in the comments.
