Seth ‘Freaking’ Rollins is the current WWE World Heavyweight Champion after defeating AJ Styles in the opening match of Night of Champions in Saudi Arabia. But, now, as per the latest development, Rollins is set to return to WWE NXT where it all began for him. He was the first NXT champion.


Since then, he has seen many heights in the WWE industry by winning several championships. Notably, he went to NXT on a handful of occasions. But, now he is set for a  match in NXT where he will be seen defending his World Heavyweight Championship against Bron Breakker. Breakker challenged Rollins to come to NXT in a World Heavyweight Championship match at the conclusion of the June 6 episode of NXT.
