With rumors of Cody Rhodes’ massive comeback circulating, WWE Superstar Seth ‘Freakin’ Rollins is reportedly expected to turn heel again.
Rhodes is still recovering from a torn pectoral muscle he suffered while preparing for Hell in a Cell. While awaiting his return to the ring, Rhodes has kept himself busy by filming content for the upcoming WWE 2K23 video game as well as WrestleMania 39 footage with fellow superstar The Miz and others.
Meanwhile, ever since Rollins brought his blonde-golden hair back and been in a feud with Bobby Lashley and Austin Theory, he seemingly turned face.
However, Xero News reported that Seth Rollins would gradually lean back into his heel side in the coming weeks as the WWE Universe awaits The American Nightmare’s return.
Check out the tweet below:
I'm told Seth Rollins will be slowly leaning more into his heel side once again in the next few weeks as we prepare for Cody Rhodes to return.
Expect Seth to mention Cody's name again sooner rather than later.
