Colby Daniel Lopez (born May 28, 1986) is an American professional wrestler. He is currently signed to WWE, where he performs on the Raw brand under the ring name Seth "Freakin" Rollins or simply Seth Rollins. Praised for his in-ring skills and ability to reinvent his on-screen character, Rollins is generally regarded as one of the best professional wrestlers active today and one of the greatest wrestlers of his generation.[6][7][8]

Prior to signing with WWE, he wrestled under the ring name Tyler Black for Ring of Honor (ROH) and was part of the Age of the Fall stable with Jimmy Jacobs. He gained prominence in ROH and established himself as one of the best professional wrestlers in North America outside WWE. During his time in ROH, he held the ROH World Championship once and the ROH World Tag Team Championship twice (with Jacobs) and won the 2009 Survival of the Fittest tournament. He also wrestled for various independent promotions including Full Impact Pro, where he was a one-time FIP World Heavyweight Champion, as well as Pro Wrestling Guerrilla, where he was a one-time PWG World Tag Team Champion (also with Jacobs).

Lopez signed with WWE in 2010 and was sent to its then-developmental territory Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW), where he was renamed Seth Rollins and became the inaugural FCW Grand Slam Champion. After WWE rebranded its developmental brand from FCW to NXT, he became the inaugural NXT Champion. In 2012, at Survivor Series, he debuted on the main roster with Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns as part of a trio called The Shield. He won his first main roster championship, the WWE Raw Tag Team Championship,[a] with Reigns; he would go on to hold the title a record six times with Ambrose and various other partners.

Rollins is a five-time world champion in WWE, having won the WWE Championship[b] twice, Universal Championship twice, and World Heavyweight Championship once. He has also held the Intercontinental Championship and the United States Championship twice each, making him WWE's 29th Triple Crown Champion and 19th Grand Slam Champion, as well as the second wrestler to accomplish the latter twice under the revised 2015 format. He is also the only wrestler to have won the WWE Championship, Universal Championship, World Heavyweight Championship, and NXT Championship, in addition to being the only wrestler to compete in the match to decide the inaugural champion of three WWE championships (NXT, Universal, and World Heavyweight).

Rollins also won the 2014 Money in the Bank ladder match, the 2015 Slammy Award for Superstar of the Year, and the 2019 Royal Rumble match. He is overall nine-time Slammy Award winner. All totaled, he has won 16 championships in WWE (with all but one on the main roster). He was one of the major elements of WWE's Reality Era and remains a central fixture in its New Era. After leaving The Shield in 2014, he joined The Authority, establishing his on-screen character as a leading villain. Since then, he has become one of the company's top heroic figures[9] and has headlined numerous major PPV and livestreaming events for WWE including WrestleMania 31 and WrestleMania XL.

Rollins topped Pro Wrestling Illustrated's PWI 500 list of the top 500 wrestlers in the world in 2015, 2019, and 2023, was voted as the PWI Wrestler of the Year in 2015 and 2023 and was named Wrestler of the Year by Sports Illustrated in 2022.[10][11] He was the first wrestler to cash in a Money in the Bank contract at a WrestleMania event and holds the record for the longest televised match in WWE history, performing for 65 minutes whilst defeating Reigns and John Cena in the same night.[12]

Early life

Colby Daniel Lopez was born in Davenport, Iowa,[13] on May 28, 1986.[1][14] He is of Armenian, German, and Irish descent.[15] He gained the Lopez surname from his Mexican-American stepfather, whom he considers his true father.[15] He has a brother and a sister, but did not know this until their existence was revealed by a DNA test in 2019.[16] He graduated from Davenport West High School in 2004.[1] As a teenager, he was an introvert who lived a straight edge lifestyle and was a big fan of rock and heavy metal music.[17] He trained at a wrestling school owned by Danny Daniels on the borders of Chicago and Oak Park.[15]

Professional wrestling career

Independent circuit (2004–2010)

Lopez made his debut at the age of 19 on August 21, 2004,[5] wrestling in the Iowa independent scene under the ring name Gixx.[1][18][19] He then joined Ian Rotten's Independent Wrestling Association Mid-South (IWA) under the name Tyler Black, and entered the Ted Petty Invitational Tournament, defeating Sal Thomaselli before being eliminated by Matt Sydal in the quarterfinals in Hammond, Indiana on September 23, 2005.[20]

He soon joined NWA Midwest and won the promotion's tag team championship with Marek Brave. The two retained the NWA Midwest Tag Team Championship against Ryan Boz and Danny Daniels, Brett Wayne and Hype Gotti and Jayson Reign and Marco Cordova several times in early 2006.[21] He briefly appeared in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) and teamed with Jeff Luxon in a loss to The Latin American Xchange (Homicide and Hernandez) on Impact! in October 2006.[22]

On May 25, 2007, while in a match with then Full Impact Pro (FIP) Tag Team Champions The Briscoe Brothers (Jay and Mark Briscoe) in Melbourne, Florida, Black's tag team partner Marek Brave suffered a legitimate back injury,[23] leading Black to pursue a singles career by competing in Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (PWG), where he defeated Joey Ryan in his debut on June 10.[24]

At PWG's Life During Wartime on July 6, 2008, Black and Jimmy Jacobs won the PWG World Tag Team Championship by defeating Roderick Strong and El Generico, a replacement for Jack Evans.[25][26] At FIP's event on December 20, Black defeated Go Shiozaki to win the FIP World Heavyweight Championship.[27] At FIP's event on May 2, 2009, Davey Richards was awarded the FIP World Heavyweight Championship by forfeit when Black was unable to compete.[27]

Ring of Honor

The Age of the Fall (2007–2009)

At the Ring of Honor (ROH) pay-per-view taping of Man Up on September 15, 2007, Black made his debut alongside Jimmy Jacobs and Necro Butcher, with the three attacking The Briscoe Brothers, and hanging Jay Briscoe from light rigging fashioned as a noose. The three formed a stable called The Age of the Fall.[28] The angle was so controversial that ROH decided to remove the footage from the pay-per-view that was being taped at the event.[19] Black later made his ROH in-ring debut later that night in a dark match, wrestling Jack Evans to a no contest.[19]

At Glory by Honor VI in November, Black defeated Alex "Sugarfoot" Payne, but was attacked by The Briscoe Brothers following the match.[29] He appeared with The Age of the Fall in their match against The Briscoe Brothers during the main event.[30] At Final Battle on December 30, Black and Jacobs defeated The Briscoe Brothers to win the ROH World Tag Team Championship.[31] They lost the championship one month later on January 26, 2008, to the No Remorse Corps (Davey Richards and Rocky Romero) when competing in an Ultimate Endurance match also involving The Hangmen 3 (Brent Albright and B. J. Whitmer), and the team of Austin Aries and Bryan Danielson.[31]

At Take No Prisoners on May 30, Black unsuccessfully challenged Nigel McGuinness for the ROH World Championship.[32] At Up For Grabs, Black and Jacobs won an eight-team tournament to win their second ROH World Tag Team Championship.[31] The two lost the championship at Driven on November 14 to the team of Kevin Steen and El Generico.[31] Black had a second chance at the ROH World Championship at Death Before Dishonor VI in New York City, when he faced McGuinness, Danielson and Claudio Castagnoli in a four-way elimination match, but McGuinness retained the title.[32]

Black in December 2008

At Final Battle in December, after Black lost a number one contender match to Austin Aries, Jacobs turned on him, and Black was then attacked by Aries.[32] At Full Circle, Black was given a non-title match against then-ROH World Champion Nigel McGuinness on January 16, 2009, where Black was victorious.[33] The following night, Black faced McGuinness in a title match, which ended in a time limit draw.[33] On June 26 at Violent Tendencies, Black defeated Jimmy Jacobs in a steel cage match to end their feud.[33]

ROH World Champion and departure (2009–2010)

In September 2009, Black took a hiatus after receiving surgery on his neck.[34] On October 10, Black defeated Kenny King in a first-round match and then Claudio Castagnoli, Colt Cabana, Delirious, Chris Hero and Roderick Strong in the finals to win the 2009 Survival of the Fittest tournament, earning him a ROH World Championship match.[35] On December 19 at Final Battle, ROH's first live pay-per-view, Black wrestled then ROH World Champion Austin Aries to a 60-minute time limit draw.[36] Because of this draw, then ROH commissioner Jim Cornette booked the two in a rematch between February 13, 2010 for the company's Eighth Anniversary Show. The booking saw Cornette set up a judging panel with himself on and one person picked by each competitor, in order for there to be a decisive winner in case of another draw. Aries picked King while Black picked Strong,[37] whom he guaranteed an ROH World Championship title shot should he win. At the event, Black pinned Aries to win the ROH World Championship.[38][39]

On April 3, Black retained the title in a three-way elimination match against Austin Aries and Roderick Strong at The Big Bang! pay-per-view on April 3.[40] He also retained the title on June 19 at the following pay-per-view, Death Before Dishonor VIII, in a match against Davey Richards.[41] Black turned into a villain at the August 20 tapings of Ring of Honor Wrestling after news broke that he had signed a developmental contract with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE).[42] He threatened to take the ROH World Championship with him to WWE and refused to put the championship at stake in a match with Davey Richards on August 28 which he then lost by submission.[42][43] On September 11 at Glory By Honor IX, in his final ROH appearance, Black lost the ROH World Championship to Roderick Strong in a no disqualification match with Terry Funk as a guest enforcer, ending his reign at 210 days after seven successful title defenses.[44]

On August 8, 2010, Lopez signed a developmental contract with WWE and was assigned to their developmental territory Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW) in September.[45][46][47] On September 14, Black made his WWE debut in a dark match prior to the SmackDown taping by defeating Trent Barreta.[48]

Lopez debuted for FCW on September 30 under the name Seth Rollins, in a loss to Michael McGillicutty.[2][49] Rollins then faced Hunico on November 4 in the first ever FCW 15 match under 15-minute Iron Man rules[50] where they fought to a 1–1 draw.[51] Following this, Rollins, along with Hunico, Richie Steamboat and Jinder Mahal, participated in the FCW 15 Jack Brisco Classic tournament.[50] On January 13, 2011, Rollins defeated Hunico in the finals to win the tournament and became the inaugural FCW Jack Brisco 15 Champion.[50][52] On March 25 at a house show, Rollins and Richie Steamboat defeated Damien Sandow and Titus O'Neil to win the FCW Florida Tag Team Championship.[53] Rollins and Steamboat eventually lost the championship to Big E Langston and Calvin Raines.[54]

In July 2011, Rollins began a feud with Dean Ambrose.[55] Ambrose and Rollins had their first match for the FCW 15 Championship in a 15-minute Iron Man match on the August 14 episode of FCW, which ended in a draw with neither men scoring a fall and, as a result, Rollins retained his title.[56] A subsequent 20-minute rematch for the title two weeks later resulted in a similar 0–0 draw.[56] A second 30-minute rematch for the title on the September 18 episode of FCW went to a time limit 2–2 draw and the match was sent into sudden death overtime, where Rollins scored a pinfall to win the match 3–2.[56] On September 22, Rollins lost the FCW 15 Championship to Damien Sandow by disqualification after Ambrose attacked Sandow late in the match.[57][58] On February 23, 2012, Rollins defeated Leo Kruger to become the new FCW Florida Heavyweight Champion.[59] Rollins lost the championship to Rick Victor at a house show on May 31.[60]

The Shield then quietly ended their association with Punk while beginning a feud with John Cena, Ryback and Sheamus that led to a six-man tag match on February 17 at Elimination Chamber,[82][83] which The Shield won.[84] On April 7, they defeated Sheamus, Big Show and Randy Orton at WrestleMania 29.[85][86] The following night on Raw, The Shield attempted to attack The Undertaker, but were stopped by Team Hell No.[87] This set up a six-man tag team match on the April 22 episode of Raw, which The Shield won.[88] On the May 13 episode of Raw, The Shield's undefeated streak in televised six-man tag team matches ended in a disqualification loss in a six-man elimination tag team match against John Cena, Kane and Daniel Bryan.[89]

After the match, Orton attacked The Authority but was overpowered, resulting in Rollins performing a Curb Stomp on Orton onto the steel ring steps, kayfabe injuring him.[123] At Survivor Series on November 23, Rollins captained Team Authority in a five-on-five elimination tag team match against Team Cena, in which he was the sole survivor for his team and the last man eliminated by Dolph Ziggler, resulting in The Authority being ousted from control of WWE.[124] At TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs on December 14, he lost to Cena in a tables match.[125]

Later that night, Rollins and Ambrose defeated Ziggler and McIntyre to win the Raw Tag Team Championship (making Rollins a double champion), only for Ambrose to turn on Rollins as he attacked him, igniting a feud between the two and disbanding The Shield once again.[205] Rollins and Ambrose lost the titles on the November 5 episode of Raw, when Rollins lost a handicap match to AOP (Akam and Rezar).[206] On November 18 at Survivor Series, Rollins defeated United States Champion Shinsuke Nakamura in an interbrand champion vs. champion match.[207] On December 16 at TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs, Rollins lost the Intercontinental Championship to Ambrose, ending his reign at 119 days.[208] Rollins failed to regain the championship from Ambrose on several occasions, including in a Falls Count Anywhere match when Bobby Lashley interfered,[209] and in a triple threat match where Lashley won the championship after pinning Ambrose.[210]

He won with assistance of his real-life wife and Raw Women's Champion Becky Lynch to overcome the biased refereeing from Evans.[220] Rollins and Lynch defeated Corbin and Evans at Extreme Rules on July 14 in a Winner Takes All Extreme Rules match mixed tag team match. Afterwards, Rollins lost the title to Lesnar, who cashed in his Money in the Bank contract, ending his reign at 98 days.[221] The following night on Raw, Rollins won a ten-man battle royal for the right to face Lesnar for the championship at SummerSlam by last eliminating Randy Orton.[222] At the event on August 11, Rollins defeated Lesnar to regain the championship, making him the second wrestler to hold the Universal Championship more than once. He also became the first superstar to defeat Lesnar at both WrestleMania and SummerSlam.[223]

The Messiah (2019–2020)

Rollins was selected as the captain for Team Raw against Team SmackDown and Team NXT on November 24 at Survivor Series,[230] where Team SmackDown emerged victorious.[231] The following night on Raw, Rollins berated the entire Raw roster for "dropping the ball" and failing to win at the pay-per-view. These comments later drew the attention of Kevin Owens, who attacked Rollins and challenged him to a match, which ended in a disqualification after AOP (Akam and Rezar) attacked Owens.[232] On the December 9 episode of Raw, despite earlier denying an alliance with AOP, Rollins joined them by attacking Owens, turning heel for the first time since 2016.[233]

After this, Rollins began calling himself the "Monday Night Messiah" while stating that he was "sacrificing" his opponents for "the greater good" and created a faction with AOP and Buddy Murphy.[234][235] Rollins and Murphy defeated The Viking Raiders to win the Raw Tag Team Championship on the January 20, 2020 episode of Raw, becoming a record six-time champion.[236] Rollins competed in the Royal Rumble on January 26, 2020, as the final entrant, but was eliminated by eventual winner Drew McIntyre.[237] Rollins and Murphy retained the titles against The Street Profits at Super ShowDown on February 27,[238] but lost the titles to them on the March 2 episode of Raw.[239] Rollins and Murphy failed to reclaim the championship from the Street Profits at Elimination Chamber six days later.[240] At WrestleMania 36 on April 4, Rollins faced Owens in No Disqualification match, which he lost thus ending the feud.[241]

At Money in the Bank on May 10, Rollins unsuccessfully challenged Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship.[242] The next night on Raw, Rollins attacked Rey Mysterio and injured his eye with the steel ring steps.[243] On the May 18 episode of Raw, Rollins recruited Austin Theory as a member of his faction.[244] Mysterio eventually returned and challenged Rollins to an Eye for an Eye match, where the only way to win was to extract the opponent's eyeball.[245] The match took place at The Horror Show at Extreme Rules on July 19,[246] which Rollins won after using the ring steps to remove Mysterio's eye.[247] Over the following weeks, Rey Mysterio's son Dominik confronted Rollins about the attacks on both him and his father. At SummerSlam on August 23, Rollins defeated Dominik in a Street Fight.[248] The following night on Raw, a tag team match was set up between Rollins and Murphy against Rey and Dominik Mysterio at Payback on August 30, where Rollins and Murphy lost to Rey and Dominik.[249]

The Visionary (2021–2023)

After a two month hiatus, Rollins returned at the Royal Rumble on January 31, 2021, entering at #29 and lasting until the final three before being eliminated by eventual winner Edge.[254] Rollins made his return to SmackDown on the February 12 episode, stating he was the leader that SmackDown needed and that the SmackDown roster needed to "embrace the vision", prompting the locker room to walk out on him.

On the same night, Rollins interfered in the main event where Roman Reigns was defending the Universal Championship against Edge, distracting the referee to cost Edge the match.[262] Over the following weeks, Rollins and Edge confronted and attacked each other until the August 6 episode of SmackDown, where Edge challenged Rollins to a match at SummerSlam, which Rollins accepted.[263] At the event on August 21, Rollins lost to Edge by submission,[264] but won their rematch on the September 10 episode of SmackDown.[265] As part of the 2021 Draft, Rollins was drafted to the Raw brand.[266] On the October 8 episode of SmackDown, Edge demanded a Hell in a Cell match between them, which was made official for Crown Jewel.[267] At the event on October 21, Rollins was defeated by Edge, thus ending their feud.[268] At Survivor Series on November 21, Rollins took part in the 5-on-5 elimination match on Team Raw and won the match as the sole survivor after eliminating Jeff Hardy.[269]

Rollins in October 2022

At WrestleMania Backlash on May 8, Rollins lost to Rhodes for a second time.[279] On the following episode of Raw, Rollins attacked and laid out Rhodes during his match for the United States Championship against Theory.[280] The following week, Rhodes challenged Rollins to a match at Hell in a Cell, inside the namesake structure, which Rollins accepted.[281] At the event on June 5, Rollins lost to Rhodes for a third time. The match received a 5-star rating from esteemed wrestling journalist Dave Meltzer, making it the first WWE main roster match to receive a 5-star rating since 2011, and the first match of Rollins's career to receive such a rating.[282] On the June 13 episode of Raw, Rollins defeated AJ Styles to qualify for the titular match at Money in the Bank on July 2,[283] which was won by Theory.[284]

Following this, Rollins would start attacking Matt Riddle over the next couple weeks until a match was made between them at SummerSlam.[285] However, the match was postponed after Riddle suffered an injury following an attack by Rollins on the July 25 episode of Raw.[286] Despite this, both Rollins and Riddle appeared at SummerSlam on July 30, engaging in a brawl which saw Rollins come out on top.[287] The match between the two occurred at Clash at the Castle on September 3, where Rollins defeated Riddle.[288] Over the next following weeks, Rollins and Riddle would continue attacking each other until when on the September 19 episode of Raw, it was announced at Extreme Rules, they would have a rematch in a Fight Pit match.[289] At the event on October 8, Rollins lost to Riddle by submission.[290]

On the October 10 episode of Raw, Rollins won the United States Championship for a second time by defeating Bobby Lashley after a returning Brock Lesnar attacked Lashley before the match.[291] This made him the second wrestler (after The Miz) to become a two-time WWE Grand Slam Champion.[292] The following week on Raw, Rollins successfully defended the title against Riddle to end their feud.[293] On the November 7 episode of Raw, Rollins issued an open challenge that was answered by Lashley, who attacked Rollins before the match started. As a result, Mr. Money in the Bank Austin Theory cashed in his contract. However, due to interference from Lashley, Rollins retained the title.[294] Rollins then started a feud with Theory, turning face for the first time since 2019.[295] At Survivor Series WarGames on November 26, Rollins lost the United States Championship to Theory in a triple threat match that also involved Lashley, ending his reign at 47 days.[296]

Over the next few weeks, Rollins became involved in the feud between Cody Rhodes, Roman Reigns and The Rock, culminating in a tag team match with Rhodes against Reigns and Rock in the main event of Night 1 of WrestleMania XL on April 6 in a losing effort. The next night, Rollins lost the World Heavyweight Championship to McIntyre, ending his reign at 316 days. However, he appeared later that night during the main event to help Rhodes defeat Reigns.[321] After WrestleMania XL, Rollins underwent surgery to repair a torn mensicus in his knee and would be out of action for an unknown amount of time.[322]

Professional wrestling style and persona

Rollins performing the Stomp on Baron Corbin

Lopez's WWE ring surname is a tribute to singer Henry Rollins.[323] His finisher during his time in FCW was a superkick to a kneeling opponent's head called Avada Kedavra, named after a magic spell that kills people in Harry Potter.[324] For most of his WWE career, he has used the Curb Stomp as a finishing move; he also used it during his pre-WWE days as Tyler Black, where it was called the Blackout.[325][326] The move was banned by WWE from March 2015 to January 2018, as then-chairman Vince McMahon thought it looked "too cruel".[327] During this time, Rollins used the Pedigree[328] and a jumping knee strike called the Ripcord Knee (and briefly King's Landing) as finishing moves.[329] The move has been simply referred to as the Stomp since its return, partially to avoid an association with the real-life attack.[330]

Rollins' character throughout his time as a member of The Shield was that of an "out-spoken hot-head who will do crazy things" to help the team, though his methodical approach to their matches earned him the nickname of "The Architect".[331] Following his turn into a villainous character and the team's initial split, he began claiming that he played the single most important role in forming The Shield, referring to himself as the group's creator and emphasizing his "Architect" nickname. In late 2019, after turning into a different kind of villainous character and aligning himself with the AOP, he began to dub himself the "Monday Night Messiah" and compare himself to Jesus while debuting a new entrance song. He also began recruiting new "disciples" into his group, such as Murphy and Austin Theory, while proclaiming himself to be their leader and savior.[235][332] In 2021, he added "Freakin" to his ring name as a way of emphasizing his importance and adopted a persona nicknamed "The Visionary", a boastful and delusional egomaniac with an eccentric personality and outlandish fashion sense.

Other media

Rollins is regularly featured on Xavier Woods' YouTube channel UpUpDownDown, where he goes by the nickname "Texas Steve". In August 2019, he won a #1 contender's tournament to challenge Samoa Joe for the UpUpDownDown Championship. He defeated Joe in a game of Track & Field II to win the championship.[333] In October, in his first and only defense, he lost the championship to his now-wife Becky Lynch in Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite.[334] In July 2022, he defeated Riddle in the finals of a WWE 2K22 tournament to win the vacant UpUpDownDown Championship, becoming the first person to hold the championship twice.[335]

Personal life

Lopez began dating Irish professional wrestler Rebecca Quin, better known as Becky Lynch, in January 2019.[336][337] Their daughter was born in December 2020.[338][339] They were married on June 29, 2021.[340] They live in Moline, Illinois.[341]

On February 9, 2015, a nude photo of former NXT wrestler Zahra Schreiber, who reportedly was Lopez's girlfriend,[342] was posted to his social media accounts, the contents of which are automatically republished by WWE.com.[343] Soon after, nude photos of Lopez were posted on the Twitter page of his then-fiancée,[344] Leighla Schultz.[345] In response, Lopez apologized for "private photographs that were distributed without [his] consent".[346] On February 25, 2016, Lopez broke up with Schreiber.[347]

Lopez is a fan of the Chicago Bears and the St. Louis Cardinals.[15] In 2014, he and his former tag team partner Marek Brave started a Moline-based professional wrestling school called The Black & The Brave Wrestling Academy.[348] In 2019, he opened a coffee shop called 329 Dport in his hometown of Davenport, Iowa.[349]
