Seth Rollins, the WWE Raw champion, recently faced an injury scare during his title defense against Jinder Mahal. Reports suggest that Rollins has indeed suffered a legitimate injury, which could have implications for his WrestleMania plans.
Sources indicate that Rollins may have sustained torn MCL and partially torn meniscus. However, it remains uncertain whether he will require surgery, with the hope being that he can avoid it. While Rollins is expected to be sidelined for at least a few weeks, there is a possibility that he could recover in time for WrestleMania if surgery is not deemed necessary.
Despite the injury, the plan for WrestleMania 40 reportedly still includes a match between Seth Rollins and CM Punk. On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer mentioned that as of Friday, Rollins and CM Punk are still scheduled for WrestleMania. However, he noted that this plan could change, as it’s currently uncertain.
WWE has officially acknowledged concerns about Seth Rollins’ condition, and an announcement regarding his next appearance on WWE Raw has been made. Rollins is set to open Monday Night Raw to address his future as the World Heavyweight Champion.
Ringside News extends its best wishes to Seth Rollins for a smooth and speedy recovery from his injury.
