Speculation On Why WWE Had Seth Rollins Lose The Intercontinental Championship

Dolph Ziggler pulled off a big upset when he beat Seth Rollins to win the Intercontinental Title on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw in Grand Rapids, MI at the Van Andel Arena on the USA Network.

In the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio (via Ringside News), Dave Meltzer speculated that the reason Rollins lost his title was that WWE has bigger plans for him.

The longtime pro wrestling journalist suggests that Rollins will lose his rematch with Ziggler on Monday and later get added to the multi-man match at Extreme Rules for a shot at Brock Lesnar and the Universal Title at SummerSlam.

“I mean it’s possible [he could win the title back] I don’t know. I kind of like the idea of him not winning the title back and going in that main event multiple-person match. I think when they announced a multiple-person match I thought that was very good for Rollins because #1 he’s been the best guy so he would help the match and #2 he’s the hottest guy right now although Strowman’s pretty hot. But I think that it would be good for him to be in that match.“
