The calendar year 2022 is coming to an end and we can safely say that it has been one of the best years for Seth Rollins in terms of character work. He had intense rivalries with Cody Rhodes and Matt Riddle. Not only that, The Visionary is the current holder of the WWE United States Championship.
Seth Rollins kicked off his championship reign on a very memorable note as he successfully retained the title twice and also escaped from a Money in the Bank cash-in.
It is hard to pick a Superstar who could win gold from Seth Rollins, but here are the 3 probable names who could defeat him for the United States Championship.
1. Will Austin Theory beat Seth Rollins?

Triple H unleashed the monster out of Austin Theory this past week on Raw where he destroyed Dolph Ziggler and Seth Rollins with a brutal beating.
Austin Theory failed to cash in on his contract, but now after that shocking gimmick change, he is a potential candidate to dethrone Seth Rollins for the United States Championship. It could also happen as soon as Survivor Series this weekend.
2. Johnny Gargano
Johnny Gargano has not done anything fruitful ever since he jumped ship to the main roster from NXT. A talented wrestler like him should be in the title picture but has ended up being a lower mid card guy.
To make him one of the top names on the roster, Triple H could book Johnny Gargano as one of the contenders to beat Seth Rollins for the United States Championship.
3. Will Bobby Lashley beat Seth Rollins?

To book Bobby Lashley versus Brock Lesnar as a non-title match, Lashley lost the U.S. Championship to Seth Freakin’ Rollins right before WWE Crown Jewel 2022.
But now that there are no premium live events for a few weeks, Lashley could be crowned as the US champion again at WWE Survivor Series. With reports emerging of a possible reunion of The Hurt Business, a championship belt can add lot of credibility to their group.
