Due mainly to the negative response from fans, WWE has been forced to keep Roman Reigns away from the top spot. That is the reason why he is stuck in a feud with the Big Show at the moment. At one point in time, management had plans for Reigns to work a stall program with Kane. That feud is most likely to happen if they change their minds about having Reigns work a triple threat title match with Seth Rollins and Randy Orton at Payback.

Some fans noticed that the side plates on the championship belt held by Seth Rollins did not have his logo on there. That has led to some speculations that WWE does not intend on him having a long streak as the titleholder.

The plan right now is for Reigns to hold the belt for a good period of time.

Now that he is the top champion, WWE has come to a decision on how they want to utilize Seth Rollins. He is going to be portraying a cowardly heel who does whatever it takes to hold on to his belt.

A ridiculous flying RKO spot ended the match and sealed the victory.
