It almost doesn’t seem like WrestleMania season these days until the Seth Rollins injury rumors start up.
This year’s edition comes from Post Wrestling, who are saying Rollins had already been “dealing with an issue,” hence the whole “getting F-5’d six times by Brock Lesnar on Monday’s Raw” thing. According to their report, Rollins will still be used on weekly TV, but is sitting out the physical stuff for the next month to rehab before Mania.
“Seth Rollins is the most notable and he is said to be dealing with an issue that predated the angle with Brock Lesnar last Monday. He is off live events for the time being and not expected to be used on Raw this Monday to recover. We were told that he will only be doing promos with no physicality for the next month on television.”
Rollins originally suffered a freak injury back in November of 2015 that saw him tear his ACL, MCL, and medial meniscus and have to sit out WrestleMania 32. In 2017 he re-injured his knee in a match against Samoa Joe and was on the disabled list right up until his WrestleMania 33 match with Triple H. In 2018, some refuted rumors of Rollins dealing with a back injury popped up weeks before Mania.
Let’s move forward cautiously and hope this is just a way to actually prevent a top (and now main-event) talent from getting injured this close to the biggest show of the year.
