Seth Rollins Reveals Who Pitched WrestleMania 31 WWE Title Win

Seth Rollins Reveals Who Pitched WrestleMania 31 WWE Title Win WWE

WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins has recalled coming up with the idea for his Money in the Bank cash-in.

In one of the most iconic cash-ins in WWE history, Rollins used his Money in the Bank contract to insert himself into the Roman Reigns vs Brock Lesnar WWE Title main event at WrestleMania 31 in 2015.

Speaking on the My Love Letter to Wrestling podcast, Rollins revealed that he originally had the idea to cash-in at WrestleMania in the winter ahead of the Show of Shows.

Noting that he ran the idea by current AEW star Claudio Castagnoli, Rollins said:

“I had the idea to do the cash-in a couple of months before WrestleMania. So probably January (2015), December (2014).

“I’m riding in the car with Cesaro, Claudio Castagnoli, and we’re booking the territory as we do, and I’ve got these ideas and I’m running them by him.

“He’s got his ideas, and we’re just trying to come up with some stuff, and it seemed like a good idea, but I had to find the right time to put the bug in somebody’s ear.”

The Visionary was only informed that his pitch was given the go-ahead midway through WrestleMania 31, after he had already wrestled Randy Orton.

Rollins is currently the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, winning the new title at Night of Champions 2023.

He’s slated to defend the gold against Finn Balor at Money in the Bank 2023.
