5. A Win Will Give Rollins More Credibility
Seth Rollins should be beating Sting, in all honesty. But given his cowardly heel persona, it’ll be a struggle for him.
Rollins has been criticized in the past for not being a credible champion with a lot of cheap wins and help from the Authority. While he did beat Dean Ambrose cleanly at Money in The Bank, and held his own against Cena at Summerslam (despite help from Jon Stewart), a win over Sting would only further enhance his credibility as ‘the man’ and build even more momentum.
And this can only be a good thing for the Architect.
4. What’s the Point of Him Losing?
Let’s say Sting does win. What’s the point in a part-timer (who is approaching his sixties, unlike fellow part-timer Brock Lesnar) taking the title off Rollins if it’s only for a month or so? Why bring an end to what has been a long reign so far for Rollins, since WrestleMania. Especially if he wins the title back from Sting again?
It just makes no sense and would only be to give Sting a crowning achievement in the WWE. Of course, with the creative team, anything is possible (such as The Rock beating CM Punk at the 2013 Royal Rumble) but this seems a stretch.
3. A Rollins Win Allows For a Potential Triple H Betrayal
While he’s arguably the top heel in the business right now, Rollins is slowly winning fans over and it’s only a matter of time until he turns face and becomes a huge hit. This opens up the possibility of a potential Triple H betrayal – something many fans have predicted.
If this were to happen however, it’s unlikely Triple H would do it while aligning himself with Sting. And the face turn will be even more effective if Rollins has held the title for a while so that’s one more reason why Sting cannot win at Night of Champions.
