Logan Paul vs Seth Rollins at Wrestlemania 39 is solidified

By Alex Al-Kazzaz

At this point, there's no doubt in anybody's mind that we will see Logan Paul take on Seth "Freaking" Rollins at Wrestlemania. The rivalry surprisingly started at the Royal Rumble after Logan eliminated Rollins. And at the Elimination Chamber, Paul attacked Rollins in the Elimination Chamber match, costing Rollins the United States title. Now, the buildup to the match is only going to continue.

Many thought that Cody and Rollins would have a second encounter at Wrestlemania, but that storyline was concluded in that Hell in a Cell match. Sooner or later, it was believed that Rollins would eventually find himself in the title picture for the WWE/Universal Championship. Another main event run for Rollins is not impossible, but when will it happen is the question. Quite frankly, it's up to Triple H now. With all the drama WWE is dealing with right now, including the potential sale of the promotion, no one knows what's really going on behind the scenes.

Clearly, the wrestling world knows who's going into this match as the heel and the face. And clearly, the wrestling world knows that Paul will be booked to win. Because, let's be honest, booking Paul to lose is bad booking. Paul already lost to Roman Reigns at Crown Jewel, and having him lose again would be bad for creative direction. Rollins losing is bad too, but Rollins always finds a way to get over with the fans one way or the other.

Paul as a heel is honestly a good move by the WWE creative booking. Based on the reaction of the Montreal crowd when Paul cost Rollins the title, Paul is on his way to solidifying himself as a good heel. If he's not over as a heel yet, he definitely ought to in the coming weeks. At this point, it's likely inevitable.
