Seth Rollins is grand slam champion in the WWE. He has won every championship in the company. He has won the WWE Championship, Intercontinental Championship, Tag-Team titles and the US Championship. So he has done whatever there is to do in the sport. But one title Rollins is yet to win is the Universal Championship. He had several chances to win in 2017 but he is yet to fight for the title for the last year.

It has been speculated that Rollins is in line to face Brock Lesnar at WWE WrestleMania 35. Rollins had a stellar year where he has been talked about the best wrestler in the world. His numerous Intercontinental Championship matches have blown the roof wherever he has performed. 

One of the most important things that helped Rollins become a great wrestler was his learning in the indies. Rollins rose to fame after fighting in several local promotions like Ring of Honor (ROH) under the name "Tyler Black". So after Chicago live event at the United Center, Rollins decided to thank two of Chicago’s own wrestlers CM Punk and Colt Cabana.  

“I remember so much so fondly of this city...and I would be remiss if I didn’t mention @CMPunk and @ColtCabana. Two guys who changed the game for Chicago wrestling. They made Chicago feel special. Made me feel like this place could lead to the rest of the world. I’m eternally grateful for the inspiration and motivation Punk and Cabana provided me at a very formative age. Helped shape my work ethic in wrestling for years to come,” said Rollins.



CM Punk left ROH in 2005 to join the WWE. Meanwhile, Rollins joined WWE in 2010 after losing the ROH World Championship to Roderick Strong.
