5. Seth Rollins needs to move to SmackDown at the WWE Draft

The underlying curse with the WWE Draft is that some wrestlers such as Kevin Owens and The Miz switch shows on almost a yearly basis. On the flip side, there are a select few wrestlers that become almost synonymous with their brand and it becomes difficult to imagine the show without them. Seth Rollins falls in the latter category.

“The Monday Night Messiah” has stayed put on Raw ever since becoming the show’s #1 overall draft pick four years ago. As an exclusive member of Raw, Rollins has won the Intercontinental and Universal Championship twice each, became the individual record-holder for most Raw Tag Team Title reigns and won the 2019 Men’s Royal Rumble.

The Messiah character was a welcome shift after his feud with “The Fiend” did no wonders for his predicament at the time but to say Rollins has done everything he possibly could on Raw is an understatement. Rollins has very much dominated the majority of the long-running Mysterio family feud and the dismantling of his partnership with Murphy will hopefully reach a definitive end by Hell in a Cell.

Braun Strowman’s appearances on Raw Underground and exhibition brawl with Keith Lee have made it a near-foregone conclusion that he’s switching shows. Bray Wyatt’s rivalry with Kevin Owens could potentially lead “The Fiend” in that direction as well. With them both gone, that would leave very few contenders for the Universal Championship. Rollins would fit seamlessly into the picture.
