The little ones can hurt too. Since it is a contact sport, there are all kinds of injuries in wrestling. Some of these can of course be much more serious than others but the most annoying ones are often those that are more nagging than anything else. If a wrestler has a minor injury that won’t go away, it might not cause the biggest problem but it can be aggravating. That seems to be the case at the moment.

One of the biggest stories currently taking place in WWE has been Seth Rollins, who has turned his back on the fans after they turned his back on them. Despite defeating Brock Lesnar for the Universal Title twice this year, Rollins has not had the strongest support from the fans. That has sent him back to the dark side, but he is going there with a bit of a physical ailment.

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Rollins fractured his pinkie finger during a street fight against Erick Rowan at a live event in Augusta, Georgia on December 8. Rollins was originally scheduled to face Cedric Alexander on this week’s Monday Night Raw but the match was changed due to the injury. At the moment, it is expected that Rollins will be cleared by this weekend, though he is not currently booked for Tables, Ladders And Chairs.

Rollins doesn’t need his finger to talk. Check out his big explanation from Monday:


Opinion: This doesn’t seem to be the biggest deal in the world and thankfully Rollins does not seem to be too seriously hurt. That is the kind of injury that is going to be annoying for some time but it is also just a bone, meaning it should heal back with no long term problems. It would be a big shame if Rollins was out for a good while, as he is already one of the centerpieces of Monday Night Raw.
