What was originally planned for Seth Rollins at the 2024 WWE Elimination Chamber PLE

As seen during the 2024 Elimination Chamber PLE, world heavyweight champion Seth Rollins and Cody Rhodes were guests on The Grayson Waller Effect.

According to Fightful.com, there were originally a plan for Rollins to defend his title against Bronson Reed at the event in Reed’s home country of Australia. However, the match was scrapped due to Rollins’ knee injury. The idea for the match was teased back in September of 2023 during Reed’s interview with 6iX Perth

“I’m excited that hopefully potentially maybe I’ll be part of the Chamber match again this year, but I’m pushing and gunning for a shot against Seth Rollins. I want a shot for that World Heavyweight Championship. I wanna be the first male Australian to fight for the World Heavyweight Championship.”

Reed noted via Twitter/X that his wife being pregnant was not the reason for him missing the Chamber PLE. It was stated to Fightful that Reed “was more than willing to work the event ahead of the birth of his child, but everything ended up working out for the best.”
