All my hopes and dreams came true at WrestleMania 34 when Seth Rollins defeated The Miz and Finn Balor to become the new Intercontinental Champion.

With that win, Rollins became a Grand Slam Champion – the third and final member of The Shield to do so. But, even though he was last, Rollins definitely did it with the most style: the Kingslayer entered the Mercedes-Benz Superdome as the Night King.

Sadly, he didn’t wrestle in the blue contacts. But as someone who’s worn costume contact lenses before, I can’t say I blame him.

I couldn’t be happier for Rollins. He’s clawed his way back to the top following a devastating injury and notched himself another amazing WrestleMania moment. Also, an interesting note pointed out by Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp: he’s won at every WrestleMania he has been a part of.

And since we’re sharing interesting stats, here’s another. The order of The Shield becoming Grand Slam Champions goes 1) Dean Ambrose; 2) Roman Reigns; 3) Seth Rollins. But the order of them each winning their first WWE World Championship goes the exact opposite.
