Triple H then gives Michael Cole WrestleMania tickets for Seth Rollins to have, so that Rollins can still go to WrestleMania. But then Triple H seems to change his tune, suggesting that maybe there’s still a way for him and Rollins to have a match. Triple H says that if Seth Rollins really wants to have a match, they can have a match, because that’s what the crowd wants, even if he’s not medically cleared to compete.
