Seth Rollins is widely regarded as one of the best mat technicians in the world of sports entertainment.

The new Universal champion got his WrestleMania moment last month in front of 80,000 people at WrestleMania 35 in New Jersey.

'The Beast Slayer' topped former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar in a physical four-minute match, pinning Lesnar’s shoulders to the canvas, and raising gold above his head to the adulation of the WWE Universe.

This week on Fight Club, we ask Rollins about that moment and if it qualifies as the greatest of his career. We delve into his thoughts on the future of Lesnar - is it WWE, UFC, both or maybe something new?

And Rollins tells us his thoughts on the dream match with AJ Styles at the Money In The Bank pay-per-view later this month.

We also introduce the newest member of the Fight Club broadcast crew. Isaac Savage is one of the countries leading combat sports scribes as chief writer for newzealandfighter.co.nz.

Savage will bring a broader knowledge of the local scene, both in MMA and boxing, while his fight recall will no doubt bring some great discussions to the show in the future.

Savage breaks down Joseph Parker’s career options, as the former WBO champion approaches a career crossroad, with his next fight set to determine his future fighting path.

All that, plus Brad Lewis and Stephen Foote run their eye over this weekend’s huge lightweight showdown between UFC fan favourites Donald Cerrone and Al Iaquinta.
