When Triple H announced the new World Heavyweight Title, the possibilities were endless for who could make history by being the first to become champion. After a grueling tournament, two contenders remain, Seth “Freakin” Rollins and AJ Styles, two Superstars with a remarkable championship pedigree.

En route to this history-making match, Rollins had to go through Shinsuke Nakamura and Damian Priest in a Triple Threat Match before defeating Finn Bálor one-on-one. Styles overcame Rey Mysterio and Edge in a Triple Threat Match, then took down Bobby Lashley in a singles clash. At WWE Night of Champions, the tenacity of The Visionary and The Phenomenal One will be put to the test as both try to become World Champion.

Rollins won his first world title in a thrilling moment at WrestleMania 31 when he cashed in his Money in the Bank Contract during the main event between Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns. In total, The Architect has won two WWE Titles and two Universal Championships. Styles, is a two-time world champion, having twice won the WWE Championship, with his second reign becoming one of the longest in recent history.

Rollins and Styles have had their fair share of history as well, memorably batting each other at WWE Money in the Bank 2019 for the Universal Title, with Rollins retaining the championship on that night. The two former world champions have stood toe-to-toe more recently as well, with The Visionary scoring another victory over Styles in June of last year.

Now that the stage is set for a legendary matchup, who will walk out of WWE Night of Champions as the first World Heavyweight Champion?
