Seth Rollins to face opponent of Vince McMahon's choosing at WWE WrestleMania 38

Rollins won't learn the identity of his opponent until they're introduced at WrestleMania.

Seth Rollins is going to WrestleMania -- but his opponent won't be confirmed until he's in the ring at the show.

After setting up over the weekend that Rollins would be meeting with Vince McMahon this morning, WWE uploaded video of the meeting to social media. McMahon informed Rollins that he'll have a match on the WrestleMania card. When Rollins asked who his opponent will be, McMahon said it will be someone of McMahon's choosing. McMahon said Rollins will learn his opponent when he's in the ring at WrestleMania and his opponent is introduced.

It's expected that the returning Cody Rhodes will be facing Rollins at WrestleMania.

In recent weeks, Rollins has been involved in a storyline where he's failed to find a path to WrestleMania. He lost matches against Kevin Owens and AJ Styles in attempts to get on the WrestleMania card. After losing to Styles, Rollins threatened that tonight's Raw wouldn't get started unless he gets his WrestleMania moment.

McMahon asked Rollins during their meeting why he tried to jump through all of those hoops when he could have just come to him and asked him about being on WrestleMania.

WrestleMania 38 is being held at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas this Saturday and Sunday. Rollins' match will be part of the card for night one of the show.
