Nothing about this sounds good. Earlier this week on Monday Night Raw, Seth Rollins was thrown off of the stage and went arm first into the window of a police van (check out the video here). The arm went through the glass and Rollins was cut open very badly, leaving a pool of blood underneath Rollins. The immediate questions was how bad the injury might be, and a few days later, we have an update.
According to Wrestlinginc.com, Rollins did not wrestle at Friday’s house show in Birmingham, Alabama but did appear at the end of the show to help Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose powerbomb Dolph Ziggler through a table. The table however didn’t break and Ziggler bounced off of it instead. Reigns got another table for another TripleBomb, though it wasn’t clear if that one broke either in the following video:
WWE has yet to comments on Rollins’ status.
Opinion: The fact that Rollins is being allowed to get physical is a good sign. I have no idea how bad the injury is but he’s a big enough piece of the roster at the moment that if he’s able to do anything that will allow him to get back in the ring, WWE is likely to go that way. With Rollins holding the Intercontinental Title, there isn’t a lot that WWE can do in the way of keeping him out of the ring for very long.
How long do you think Rollins will be out? If he has to vacate the title, who will get it next? Let us know in the comments below.
