… it was Seth Rollins who stomped Brock Lesnar in Washington, DC tonight! According to WWE.com:
If there’s an argument to be made for Seth Rollins at WrestleMania beyond whatever intangible winds of destiny he appears to be riding, it’s that if he hits Brock Lesnar with his best shot, he might just pull it off and take the Universal Title. Even Paul Heyman admitted he was expecting as much from the “Beastslayer,” but The Advocate was hasty to add that even Rollins’ biggest move wouldn’t be enough to stop The Beast from “violating” Rollins and “desecrating the good name of WrestleMania.”
For all Brock’s well-earned confidence, however, he may be considering Rollins as too much of an afterthought. The challenger interrupted Heyman, went face-to-face with the champion, and insisted that while victory was certainly improbable, it wasn’t impossible. As if to illustrate his point, he nailed Lesnar with a pair of low blows and pancaked his head into the mat with a Stomp, leaving The Conqueror a writhing heap in the ring while Rollins made a triumphant exit.
Beating Brock this Sunday might not be so cut-and-dry, of course. As Charly Caruso pointed out, if Rollins low-blows Brock on Sunday, he’ll get disqualified. (Rollins’ reply: “Eh. He had it coming.”) But for one night, Lesnar took his opponent’s best shot and had no answer. Unlikely as it seems, the unconquerable champion might be looking at the one thing more ominous than a slayer: A spoiler.
