And your NEW Universal Champion is...
Then, in this video from moments after his debut at TakeOver: R Evolution in December 2014, Owens and Triple H craft a plot which will take nearly two years to hatch! WHAT? Everyone watched as he drove Seth's head into the mat, all while looking directly at a stunned Kevin. The Inquisitr reported today that WWE has started to build up to a WrestleMania 33 match between Rollins and Triple H. That said, the two will most likely remain involved in a rivalry of some kind for the next number of months. Randy Orton also got used in a similar way after he defected from The Authority by the end of that same year.

WWE is going in an interesting route by continuing to have relative newcomers hold the Universal Championship, much like what's happening over on "WWE SmackDown Live" and the WWE Championship.
Whereas Seth Rollins had no option rather than being in the shock and after the show went off-air, Seth rollins seen arguing with the WWE RAW Managers, Mick Foley and Stephanie McMahon.
Owens scored the first elimination of the night, recovering from a big boot to the face to opportunistically hit a frog splash on Big Cass, reducing the match to a triple threat.
