Seth Rollins: Massive rumour on Night of Champions 2023 status

Last updated

WWE Superstar Seth Rollins will be facing AJ Styles in the opening match of Night of Champions 2023, but why is the match on so early?

According to a new report/rumour from Boozer Wrestling, Rollins needs to get his match out of the way so that he can get back to the United States for filming responsibilities.

“The word is Seth needs to wrestle and fly back ASAP for his movie contract obligations” the account claimed on Twitter ahead of Night of Champions.

It’s worth noting that these rumours from Boozer Wrestling are just that, rumours, as we are unable to verify whether or not the report is legitimate at this time.

Rollins was recently pictured filming for the new Captain America film, so while we can’t confirm this is for that, it would certainly make sense for it to be.

We still do not know if Rollins is likely to win the belt from Styles at NOC, but he has been the favourite to do so pretty much from the outset.

Here is the full card for WWE Night of Champions 2023:

  • Seth “Freakin” Rollins vs. AJ Styles – tournament final for inaugural World Heavyweight Championship
  • Cody Rhodes vs. Brock Lesnar
  • Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn (c) vs. The Bloodline (Roman Reigns and Solo Sikoa) – for Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship
  • Gunther (c) vs. Mustafa Ali – for WWE Intercontinental Championship
  • Bianca Belair (c) vs. Asuka – for WWE Raw Women’s Championship
  • Rhea Ripley (c) vs. Natalya – for WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship
  • Becky Lynch vs. Trish Stratus

The WWE Network makes it easy for fans in the UK to watch this extravaganza from the comfort of their living rooms.

Available for a monthly fee of just £9.99 on a rolling contract, the network offers live streams of all WWE events, including the NOC.
