This upcoming match holds significant history and intrigue. Rollins and Balor first crossed paths at SummerSlam 2016, where Balor emerged victorious, becoming the inaugural Universal Champion.
However, Balor’s triumph was cut short due to a shoulder injury sustained during the match, forcing him to relinquish the title the following night on Raw.
Since their initial encounter, both Rollins and Balor have experienced various highs and lows in their careers. Balor transitioned into a heel persona and formed the Judgment Day stable alongside Dominik Mysterio and Rhea Ripley.

Meanwhile, Rollins secured his position as the new World Heavyweight Champion by defeating AJ Styles in the WHC tournament final.
Now, these two formidable competitors are primed to collide once again, this time vying for one of the most prestigious titles in WWE. Will Rollins continue his dominant reign as the World Heavyweight Champion, further solidifying his legacy?
Or will Balor finally seize the opportunity to exact his revenge and capture the world championship for the second time in his WWE career?
