It’s kind of a valid worry. Wrestlers are celebrities, but more often than not, they are only know for one thing. That does leave open some doors for mainstream success, but those doors are fairly limited. Occasionally you will see wrestlers break through to the other side, though it can come at a loss to a wrestling promotion. WWE sees that as a possibility with two stars and it is giving them some pause.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Already? Update On CM Punk’s Reported Issues With AEW, Collision Location Up In The Air

Earlier this week, Seth Rollins was spotted filming on the set of Captain America: New World Order, which will also reportedly cause him to miss next week’s Monday Night Raw. This has reportedly led to “hesitancy” to have him win the World Heavyweight Championship at Night Of Champions. However, according to WRKD Wrestling on Twitter, WWE’s worry about Rollins and his wife Becky Lynch becoming more involved with Hollywood is seen as something longer term and “isn’t an immediate fear”. There is no word on how much time Rollins could miss due to filming commitments.

Rollins and Lynch are pretty important pieces of the WWE puzzle. Check out the two of them on their own and together:

Opinion: I can’t say I blame WWE for being worried about this as they have lost a fair few wrestlers to Hollywood in the first place. At the same time, WWE seems to understand that this is a possibility down the road and seem ready to deal with it. Hopefully they have something in mind, as losing one or either of these two could be devastating if there isn’t something there to cushion the blow. Maybe that is down the line, but it is something that might (or might not if nothing comes of this) needs to be addressed.

Will Rollins and Lynch make full time jumps to Hollywood? Which would be a better actor? Let us know in the comments below.
