At WWE WrestleMania 40, Seth Rollins was at the forefront of the action, showcasing his resilience and determination in two high-stakes encounters. Initially teaming up with Cody Rhodes to take on The Rock and Roman Reigns, Rollins then faced Drew McIntyre in hard-fought battle on Sunday night. Despite his commendable efforts, McIntyre emerged victorious, only to be swiftly dethroned by Damian Priest.

However, Rollins’ night wasn’t over just yet. Making a dramatic return at the conclusion of WrestleMania 40 Sunday, Rollins donned his Shield gear in a bid to aid Cody Rhodes in his showdown against Roman Reigns. Yet, his involvement was short-lived as he fell victim to a chair attack and was swiftly incapacitated.

Throughout the event, observant fans couldn’t help but notice Rollins limping noticeably, sparking concerns about a potential injury. Ringside News sought clarification from a senior member of the WWE Creative team, who confirmed that Rollins’ limping was part of the storyline and that Rollins had been performing while nursing injuries for some time.

“Part of the story, but also because he’s been playing hurt for a while now.”


As previously reported, Rollins is slated to take hiatus from WWE, with expectations suggesting an absence of around a month. It remains to be seen what awaits Rollins upon his return to television, but speculation abounds regarding his next move within the WWE landscape.

Reflecting on Rollins’ tenure as the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, opinions may vary.
