Seth Rollins is back on WWE TV and back in the WWE Title picture.

Roman Reigns retained the WWE World Title against A.J. Styles in the Extreme Rules PPV main event. Then, as Reigns celebrated, Rollins suddenly hit the ring and dropped Reigns with a Pedigree.

Rollins hoisted the WWE Title belt into the air as the PPV signed off, signaling Styles’s exit and Rollins’s return to the title picture.

Rollins had been off WWE TV for six months recovering from a knee injury suffered in November when he was WWE champion. Rollins vacated the title due to injury before facing Reigns at Survivor Series. Now, it’s come full circle with Reigns the champion and Rollins looking to re-claim the title he never lost.

Following Rollins’s return, WWE quickly mobilized with new merchandise highlighting Rollins’s desire to “reclaim” the WWE Title after being “re-designed” and “rebuilt.”
