WWE fans received concerning news as Seth Rollins, the reigning heavyweight champion, suffered a knee injury during the main event of Raw.

Rollins valiantly defended his title against Jinder Mahal but sustained the injury in the process. Although the full extent of The Visionary’s injury remains uncertain, one thing is clear—he will not be participating in this weekend’s house show events. To allow him to recuperate, Randy Orton will step in as his replacement.

In other backstage updates:

Dragon Lee is set to continue his appearances on NXT, at least until NXT Vengeance Day. Lee was the North American Champion for the brand before he fell victim to a cash-in by Oba Femi.


Gable Steveson is scheduled to make regular appearances at every SmackDown taping moving forward.
