Beastslayer: Seth Rollins' 10 Greatest Matches, Ranked

Seth Rollins recently proclaimed himself to be the best professional wrestler in the world, and when you take a look back at what he has achieved in his career so far in terms of titles and accomplishments, it is quite hard to argue with him.

As the first-ever NXT Champion, a member of The Shield, a former United States, Tag Team, WWE, and current Universal Champion, there is very little for Rollins to actually accomplish in the wrestling field.

However, to be the best wrestling in the world you have to put on great quality wrestling matches on a regular basis, which is something Rollins does as well, and within this article, we will take a look back at the 10 best matches of his singles career so far.

10 Seth Rollins vs Randy Orton (WrestleMania 31)

We kick start this list with a very fun WrestleMania 31 match which just happened to be one of the best nights of Seth Rollins' career, but that wasn't just because of his fun match against Randy Orton.

The two men had been feuding for a long time within The Authority, so the tension was palpable as the fans were invested in everything they did with two of the smoothest WWE Superstars putting on a great match.

While it would be Randy Orton who picked up the win with an unbelievable RKO, it would be Rollins who had the last laugh, ending the night with the WWE Championship after cashing in his Money in the Bank contract in the main event.

9 Seth Rollins vs Finn Balor (SummerSlam 2016)

This match is often overlooked by many wrestling fans, mainly because the fans themselves actually ruined it in terms of the match, with the WWE Universe spending all of the time focusing on the design of the Universal Championship rather than the in-ring product.

Both Seth Rollins and Finn Balor brought everything they had to this match in order to make it worthy of the historic moment that it was, with the first-ever Universal Champion being crowned.

Balor battled through the vast majority of the match with a serious injury that forced to him to vacate the title the next day and is a match that is very worthy of a second watch taking out the crowd.

8 Seth Rollins vs Dolph Ziggler (Extreme Rules 2018)

Seth Rollins and Dolph Ziggler are two very confident wrestlers who often tell the world just how good they are, but thankfully, they are able to back it up inside the ring, which they proved when they feuded over the Intercontinental Championship.

At Extreme Rules last year the two men faced off in a fantastic 30-minute Iron Man match, and while the fans did provide an issue over the clock (a seemingly common theme for big Rollins matches), the two men overcame the problems.

With Drew McIntyre on the outside running interference, they were able to tell a brilliant story that helped raise the level of the Intercontinental Championship back to where it belongs.

7 Seth Rollins vs Brock Lesnar (SummerSlam 2019)

Despite what people may say, Brock Lesnar, tends to bring the best out of other people in major main event matches, especially wrestlers of smaller stature, as he is able to bump like crazy in order to make them look great.

The two men have always had great in-ring chemistry and had a brilliant feud from all the way back at the Royal Rumble, and when they finally had a proper singles match (not counting their WrestleMania bout), they showed the world it was worth the wait.

Rollins was on fire in this match, bouncing around the ring in order to do everything possible to get the job done, which he eventually did, picking up one of the biggest wins of his career.

6 Seth Rollins vs The Miz vs Finn Balor (WrestleMania 34)

This fantastic triple threat match kicked off WrestleMania 34 and set the tone incredibly high for the show with a very fast-paced match that kept the fans on the edge of their seats from start to finish.

With three fantastic wrestlers with very different in-ring styles being put against each other, their in-ring chemistry worked fantastically and because it was the first match of the night, the crowd was certainly into everything that happened.

The match was full of excellent near falls and it was just a perfect match for the Intercontinental Championship that summed up the 'workhorse' championship to perfection, with Rollins clinching the win on the Grandest Stage Of Them All.

5 Seth Rollins vs John Cena (SummerSlam 2015)

Seth Rollins received an incredible push in the summer of 2015 with WWE making it clear that Rollins was the future main event talent and his SummerSlam match with John Cena where both the United States and WWE Championships were on the line was the peak of that.

Anytime that Cena is involved in a match, the opponent instantly becomes the underdog, yet Seth managed to match Cena move for move, proving he was more than ready to be involved in the main event scene.

The match was fantastic with the two men going back and forth with some brilliant near falls, and the only thing holding this back from being higher was the horrible finish with Jon Stewart getting involved to screw Cena.

4 Seth Rollins vs Roman Reigns vs Dean Ambrose (Battleground 2016)

This was a match that really could have taken place at a far bigger PPV if WWE had been smarter, with the three Shield members all competing in a triple threat being something worthy of a WrestleMania spot.

However, even though it took place at Battleground, that doesn't take away from how good the match was, with the three men having obvious and undeniable chemistry after all their time against each other.

Rollins was on fine display within this match, carrying the vast majority of the work with his frantic energy as he put on a stellar performance, even if it was Dean Ambrose who ended up with the win.

3 Seth Rollins vs Daniel Bryan (Monday Night Raw 2013)

Seth Rollins and Daniel Bryan putting on a world-class wrestling match? That really isn't a big surprise for anyone as they are two of the best wrestlers of this generation, and the two men proved that on Monday Night Raw back in 2013.

Rollins had only just burst onto the scene at this point and was quickly making his mark as a top talent in the company, and placing him in a match against someone as talented as Bryan is always going to make people shine.

Even though most wrestlers greatest matches tend to take place on PPVs as more time is given, every now and then a television match stands out, and this was certainly one of them.

2 Gauntlet Match (Monday Night Raw 2018)

Gauntlet matches can be incredibly boring and predictable if they are not done correctly, but in 2018 WWE got it perfectly right, with Seth Rollins making history with a star-making performance.

Every now and then, Rollins is able to pull out special performances like this that remind everyone how good he really is, with this show breaking the record for the longest period of time a wrestler competed in Raw history.

Rollins faced a variety of wrestlers in the seven-man gauntlet and managed to beat some huge names in John Cena and Roman Reigns, and even though Elias beat him, the 1 hour and 5-minute performance was sensational.

1 Seth Rollins vs John Cena vs Brock Lesnar (Royal Rumble 2015)

When it comes to Seth Rollins' standout singles match you need to take a look back to the 2015 Royal Rumble event where he put on a show-stealing performance alongside two of WWE's biggest ever names.

Many people often criticise Brock Lesnar matches for being repetitive and just full of German suplexes, but this shows just how good he is, with all three men pulling out all the stops to make this match a major hit.

With huge spots taking place with Lesnar being taken out through the announce tables, it seemed like Rollins had the job done until the Beast managed to rise at the last second to steal the win with a huge F5, providing an incredibly climactic ending.
