The Kingslayer Seth Rollins won the Men’s Royal Rumble Match and chose to challenge the Beast Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship at WrestleMania. As Rollins stood face to face to Lesnar, he demolished Rollins by hitting six F-5 in quick succession. Rollins then got involved in a war of words with Lesnar’s manager Paul Heyman for the next few weeks. As Lesnar appeared on 1 April episode of RAW to hype the WrestleMania match, Rollins confronted Lesnar in the ring. They started brawling where Rollins came on top after he hit Lesnar with the curb stomper.
Even before Rollins can reach the ring, Lesnar attacks him. He sends him through the ring post and then through the barricade. He follows it up with an F-5 and then throws him at the ringside a few times. He then sends him over the announce table a couple of times before finally taking Rollins inside the ring. The Referee asks Rollins if he wants to continue. Rollins is selling his hand injury. Lesnar again sends Rollins out of the ring. He clears the announce table and puts the table lid over the ring and sends Rollins through it before taking Rollins back to the ring.
The bells finally ring. Lesnar with shoulder blocks in the corner and hits his first German suplex and then the second one. Suplex no. 3 and goes for the F-5.
