15-time champion to reportedly be Seth Rollins’ WWE SummerSlam 2022 opponent (Potential Spoiler)
Former Universal Champion Seth Rollins currently has no match officially scheduled for tonight’s WWE SummerSlam 2022. His originally planned match with Riddle got postponed. Now, we have a potential spoiler on the mystery last-minute opponent that could face Rollins at the show.
This past week on Monday Night RAW, Riddle suffered a brachial plexusan injury following an attack by The Visionary. On WWE’s The Bump, it was announced that Riddle won’t be medically cleared to compete at SummerSlam, resulting in the match being postponed.
Rollins sent out an out-of-character Tweet reacting to the same and Triple H had an interesting reply to it, fueling speculations of a mystery opponent being announced for Rollins. Fans have gone into a frenzy, speculating who could show up to face him this Saturday.
Now, Bryan Alvarez reported on the Wrestling Observer Live (via Cageside Seats) that the “most likely” opponent for Rollins at SummerSlam is Dolph Ziggler.
“Alvarez also claims that Dolph Ziggler is the “most likely” opponent for Seth Rollins at tonight’s SummerSlam event.”
Former World Heavyweight Champion Dolph Ziggler recently returned to Monday Night RAW and attacked Mr. Money in the Bank 2022 Theory. He is considered as one of the best workers on WWE’s current roster and could have an amazing last-minute match against Seth Rollins at WWE SummerSlam 2022.
