Seth Rollins suffered a devastating leg injury back in November of 2015, which already feels like an eternity ago. At the time, The Architect (a nickname we just keep letting happen, apparently) was the current WWE World Heavyweight Champion, and his absence completely changed the trajectory of the main event scene heading into WrestleMania. While a lot of people are pumped that Triple H is champion again for real in 2016, there’s a distinct, curb-stomp-shaped hole in our hearts.
Initial estimates put his recovery time between 6-9 months (hehe). We’re in month number four, and our friends over at Pro Wrestling Sheet have some great news: Rollins is back training in a wrestling ring. Rollins has been training without a brace at Black and Brave Wrestling Academy, Rollins’ and Marek Brave’s Illinois wrestling school. Word is he’s been training multiple times a week, though there’s no update on his current timeframe for recovery, or a return to a WWE ring.
And don’t worry, guys, he’s being careful with that fragile knee of his. Pro Wrestling Sheet explains that “he’s cautious about leg involvement and plays it safe by icing his knee after every training session.” GOOD. The list of missing WWE Superstars is already too long, and just…oh man. Come back to us soon, Seth. And uhhh…bring Cesaro with you. Thankssssss.
