Seth Rollins may have been deprived of winning the WWE title but there is always a next time. However, there may be some changes happening, particularly in the way that the 35-year-old wrestler will be addressed.

A look at the WWE site shows Rollins now being referred to as Seth “Freakin” Rollins. This means the name change is now official and that changes are forthcoming.

Aside from WWE action, this means that Rollins' name change will also be reflected in merchandise and other properties – including the famed video game WWE 2K22.

Several WWE stars have undergone name changes although Rollins is someone who may be a cut above the rest. Moving ahead, it will be interesting what the promotion has lined up, especially following the changes made at WWE Day 1.

As mentioned in a previous post, Rollins was allegedly the one set to become WWE champion before the inclusion of Brock Lesnar to the mix. The “Beast Incarnate” was supposed to face WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns. All those were scorned after the Tribal Chief was kept out for testing positive to COVID-19.

It is possible that the name change could be the start of something new, potentially a rivalry that would see “The Messiah” make another run at the WWE title with serious intentions.

Speaking of the altered script at WWE Day 1, Dave Meltzer gave another update on the original plans involving Rollins.

The scribe claims that Rollins would have kept the WWE title under WrestleMania 38 and defend it against whoever wins the 2022 edition of the WWE Royal Rumble. The likely adversary would have been one among Big E, Kevin Owens or Bobby Lashley.

All that is now water under the bridge with Lesnar set to defend the title at the Royal Rumble. But then again, it may be best to keep an eye on Seth “Freakin” Rollins who could enter the mix. And most know that this has happened before.
