Spacetime coherency issues aside, the equivalent rest mass energy of the Schwarzschild singularity goes no way towards counterbalancing its gravitational potential energy which, by any realistic assessment, is infinitely negative.
Now it can be pointed out that while in the case of the Robertson-Walker final singularity, there is a corresponding Schwarzschild singularity that is connected with the collapse of a gravitating body, the Schwarzschild singularit corresponding to the Robertson-Walker initial singularity is within a vacuum black hole one that does not arise from gravitational collapse.
This metric has a singularity, (denoted by rs) called the Schwarzschild singularity (or radius) at
