Seth Rollins Reflects On Scrapped WWE Faction

Seth Rollins has given his take on a scrapped WWE faction, and even done some fantasy booking for it.

Back in late 2019, Seth Rollins coined the moniker ‘The Monday Night Messiah’ and built a pool of talent around him which included the likes of The Authors Of Pain, Buddy Murphy and later Austin Theory. Whilst the stable seemed built with star power, it soon fizzled out and all bar Rollins and Theory had been released by WWE by the middle of 2021.

In a discussion with Alex McCarthy for The Mail Online, Rollins was asked how big the original plans were for the group and for his character.

Oh yeah. The character of the Monday Night Messiah was very much a cult leader, very much a spiritual guide and a mentor – all those things.

You look at the talent I was able to bring in under that tree, but everything just kept going sideways.

There were injuries and then the pandemic happened, there was talent shifting from the main roster to NXT and everything was just uncertain.

Then it reached its peak with the story with Rey Mysterio and Dominik and all that and there really wasn’t anywhere else for it to go because it had been decimated throughout the year 2020.

Continuing on, Seth Rollins came up with a bit of fantasy booking for the group, lamenting on what it could have become.

I think it had a lot of legs, I think what you saw was it just getting started in early 2020, I think we had the chance to be one of the most dominant stables in WWE at the time, this was pre-Bloodline as well.

I would have been very interesting to see had we kept going, where everybody would have landed.

It’s a fun little fantasy booking experiment to see what that stable against The Bloodline would have looked like, it would have been really interesting.

But it’s just one of those, it is what it is, it happens and people have to adapt, stuff changes and you have to make the best of it.

During the same interview, Seth Rollins also discussed how he doesn’t know exactly where his future lies.
