Seth Rollins made his return at the Royal Rumble match last month, after being absent from WWE television for over two months to be with his wife Becky Lynch and his newborn child Roux. Rollins had a solid showing in the match before he was eliminated.
During this week’s episode of Friday Night Smackdown, Seth Rollins made his return to the blue brand. He came out to his old ‘Burn It Down’ theme instead of his Messiah theme that he used for the majority of 2020.
Rollins addressed the birth of his daughter and said this changed his perception and it gave him a new vision. Several WWE Superstars gathered around the ring as Rollins cut his promo. Rollins also addressed the Superstars, praising them all and then wondered where he fit in.
Rollins came back with a purpose and revealed that after a lot of self-reflection he realized that he is the great leader that SmackDown needs to make it greater than it already is. Many Superstars who had surrounded the ring at that point left, except for Cesaro.
Seth Rollins then decided to attack Cesaro from behind and took out The Swiss Superman’s knee and went on to pummel him with strikes. Referees rushed in and pulled Rollins away from Cesaro.
