About

Before he became famous as Seth Rollins in WWE, Colby Lopez went by the name of Tyler Black in the independent scene and was a big Superstar before he arrived in WWE NXT. In addition to a host of accolades in various promotions, Black became a big star in Ring of Honor (ROH). In fact, he pinned Austin Aries to become the ROH World Champion. He even defended the Championship on seven different occasions, and ultimately dropped it to Roderick Strong after having a combined reign of 210 days as the Champion.

Early Life

Long before he ever stepped into the ring in the independents, Colby Lopez was a young man from Iowa with a big dream. His surname comes from his Mexican-American Stepfather. As a youngster and even now, Lopez was and is a huge fan of rock and hardcore music, especially metalcore.

WWE Debut

Upon the request of Evan Bourne and Jim Cornette, Rollins came to WWE and signed up with FCW. He had a great run in the developmental territory, feuding with his future stable-mate Dean Ambrose among others. When FCW was rebranded as NXT, Rollins entered the Gold Rush tournament where he faced Jinder Mahal in the finals. Rollins won the match to become the inaugural NXT Champion. Seth Rollins lost the title to Big E in due time, but he left his mark in NXT nevertheless.

The Shield

Seth Rollins made a main roster debut like few others have done in WWE history. He showed up at Survivor Series 2012 with Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns, in a faction known as The Shield. The Shield left a path of carnage and devastation in their wake, as they dropped opponent after opponent continuously.

During their amazing run, Rollins and Reigns defeated Team Hell No to become the Tag Team Champions. They retained the Championships for a long time. They eventually lost the title to Cody Rhodes and Goldust. The Shield then had great programs with The Wyatt Family and Evolution thereafter. They even turned babyfaces following their initial run as heels. However, Rollins shocked the world by turning heel and aligning himself with The Authority.

Rollins came into his own as a heel, by embarking on a variety of programs. He captured the Money in the Bank contract thanks to Kane, and had a fabulous program with Dean Ambrose. He feuded with Randy Orton and got pinned by The Viper in a match at WrestleMania 31, before he cashed in his briefcase in the WrestleMania main event and became the WWE World Heavyweight Champion for the first time.

As Champion, Rollins was fabulous. He had feuds with Lesnar, Ambrose, Orton and Sting, and he played the scared and cowardly heel to absolute perfection, with panache. All of this came crashing down when Rollins tore his ACL, MCL and medial meniscus during a match with Kane in Dublin, Ireland.

Injury

Seth Rollins returned from injury with much momentum. He won back his WWE World Heavyweight Championship from Roman Reigns but lost it moments later when Ambrose cashed in his Money in the Bank contract. Rollins then had a feud with Finn Balor over the first WWE Universal Championship, but he came up short on that occasion. Rollins had a memorable feud with Triple H, who cost him the Universal Championship, in a program that culminated at WrestleMania 33.

The Shield's Second Run

Rollins has been a babyface and one of the featured attractions on RAW since then. He was part of the second Shield reunion, where Kurt Angle filled in for the ill and afflicted Roman Reigns. He also entered the Tag Team fray with Dean Ambrose and Jason Jordan. Thereafter, he eyed the Intercontinental Championship, and went up against The Miz and Finn Balor at WrestleMania 34. The Shield’s second run was cut short by Dean Ambrose’s injury.

Seth Rollins Behind The Ring

Seth Rollins is one of the biggest stars in WWE, and as a result, he was the face of the WWE 2K18 video game. He has also been a part of video games like WWE 2K14, 15, 16 and 17 in the past. He remains a big fan of metalcore music and also, a very vocal atheist. He is expected to remain one of WWE’s biggest stars for the foreseeable future.
