Pearce and Deville went straight to business. They asked him how they could accommodate Rollins, but the latter said it was the other way round.

The former World Champion talked about the much-awaited ‘Championship address’ of Roman Reigns on SmackDown. He then said, “If the subject happens to be his next challenger, then you’re looking at him.”

Rollins then went on to speak about why he would be the ideal challenger to his former SHIELD Brother. According to him, he’s never been more prepared “mentally, spiritually, physically and more importantly, no one on the roster deserves the chance like he does.”

Indeed, he made a valid argument, but Adam Pearce was not ready to decide in haste. But Deville assured Rollins that they would take him into consideration when the opportunity presented itself.

A pleased Rollins walked away with saying “the time is now.” The latter is an iconic line from John Cena himself. Is Rollins taking Cena’s return rumor a little too seriously?

“I just have a lot of respect for him, for what he’s done for the industry, but also, he’s a great dude. To be thought highly of by him is cool, I do appreciate that a lot.”
