It’s because It was a climax,” said Rollins. “This title wouldn’t exist if our industry and our company weren’t healthy with incredible talent across the board. Monday Night needed a title. A new title was needed because everyone is so nice. You look at the whole circle, me, AJ Styles, all the SmackDown guys, really. Sheamus, Drew McIntyre, Gunther. You look at Raw, you have Cody Rhodes, you have Kevin, you have Sammy. There are a lot of people at the top, a lot of competition, and we needed a prize to fight for as our Universal Champion seeks to maintain his part-time schedule. So we must have a title. I was so thrilled to receive it. I am thrilled to be the one to usher in this new era, an era of transformation.

Either way, with Paul “Triple H” Levesque calling the title the Working Man’s Championship, a moniker usually reserved for the Intercontinental Championship, “The Visionary” needed to firmly cement his legacy over his brand new title. wants to work and it really sets the stage for moving forward.
