Riddle and Seth Rollins brawl in surprise segment

Despite being sidelined with a storyline injury, Riddle still appeared on WWE Summer Slam to call Seth Rollins. The King of Bros hit the ring demanding that Rollins come out and face him, to which Rollins responded by rushing the squared circle and brawling with his rival. Security would attempt to separate the two, but not before Rollins landed on Riddle’s injured neck. Rollins slowly retreated as Riddle took care of his neck, shouting that Riddle should never have called him in the first place.

Check out highlights from the surprise segment below.

Riddle and Rollins were originally scheduled to face off in a singles match on SummerSlam, but creative plans changed the Monday night gross. To accommodate the change, WWE performed an injury angle on Raw that saw Riddle take a kick from Rollins on the steel ring steps.

“For anyone who has purchased a ticket for #Slam summer hoping to see me in action, I apologise,” Rollins wrote on Twitter after learning his match had been pulled from the card. “I’ve done everything I can over the last 6 months to earn my place on this show, but some things are out of my control. Thank you for always singing my song. They will hear you one day.”

New Chief Creative Officer Paul “Triple H” Levesque responded by simply writing, “I hear you!” This led to fan speculation that Rollins could still have a match on the show, perhaps against a surprise opponent similar to how his WWE Wrestlemania 38 fight went down. Theories ranged from Johnny Gargano to Bray Wyatt as possible opponents for Rollins.

Regardless of his lack of a match, Rollins still seemed to brawl with Riddle and showed up in his trademark flashy outfit. Rollins recently revealed that his gear is made by the same designer who works with his wife, Becky Lynch, on his outfits.

“My designs for ring gear Sarath Ton, husband of Sasha Banks, former wrestler (Kid Mikaze) and now WWE designer, he and his collaborator Jolene are amazing,” Rollins said. “The stylist is ‘King’ Troi Anthoni from Los Angeles, who also works for Becky and other stars. He goes through special suits and walking dresses for me when it comes to looking extra sharp. Becky and I also come up with ideas ourselves and the others then splurge (laughs), in the end it’s a collective effort of everyone.”
