Work him until he drops. WWE wrestlers have a long, and at times completely grueling, schedule. It can be made even worst if you are a top member of the roster, with the champions having it harder than anyone else. The schedule can include all kinds of appearances, media requirements and of course the wrestling itself. This can be made even worse if you have to wrestle frequently, but what if you have to wrestle twice in a night on the same show?
This week on Monday Night Raw, more names were announced for the Team Hogan vs. Team Flair match at Crown Jewel. Seth Rollins and Rusev had already been announced for Team Hogan, with Ricochet joining the team. On the other hand, Randy Orton and King Corbin had already been announced for Team Flair, with Shinsuke Nakamura and Bobby Lashley being added to the team as well. This is interesting for Rollins, who was also announced as defending the Universal Title against Bray Wyatt on the same show. Should Rollins wrestle twice, it would be the second time in two months after Clash Of Champions.
It was a big setup. Check out how the ten man tag was created:
Opinion: I could see this one going either way as WWE certainly loves having Rollins out there. He is a multiple time World Champion and it would not be hard to figure out a way to make this work in a ten man tag. Rollins could stay on the apron for the most part and only work in short sections, which is the point of something like this. Then again there is always the chance that WWE could change the way the card is set up, which might work out better for everyone involved.
How do you see this going for WWE? Should Rollins work twice? Let us know in the comments below.
