Seth Rollins re-injures knee may miss WM

Post by Fernando on Wed 01 Feb 2017, 3:40 pm

Seth Rollins’ right knee was re-injured during Samoa Joe’s ambush at the conclusion of this Monday’s Raw, WWE.com can now confirm. The attack occurred as Rollins was heading to the ring to finally confront Triple H, who cost The Architect a WWE Universal Championship opportunity back in August.

WWE.com cameras captured footage of Rollins leaving the Laredo Energy Arena in Laredo, Texas, Monday night, but no specific details on the former WWE Champion’s condition have been revealed. Rollins is set to be evaluated later this week

The questions marks over it really is that Joe didn't once go for his knee just threw him about and choked him out more of less.

Edit- A few places have now confirmed it's a legit injury. Sad times for Crossfit Jesus

I think they've put a lot of thought into this angle and am reasonably optimistic. Hunter's involvement suggests he has the say on what happens.

So we will get Joe humping a fake corpse at some point

This is devastating for him if he'll miss Mania again. Hope its not as serious as first feared.

Makes Samoa Joe look a total bad ass though, not sure where that leaves him or Triple H for Wrestlemania though if Rollins can't get fit in time. Maybe Balor will be back by then and could take his place in the angle, although that doesn't really make sense...

Could Undertaker challenge HHH and Joe as the conscience of the WWE? Burns the Reigns/Taker bit but that didnt make a whole lot of sense to begin with.

I've watched it back a few times to see where it could have happened, the only spot I can see which would have cause damage is when Joe locked in the Kokina clutch and they dropped to the mat. God the more I watch it the more I can see it and it looks legit.



If you watch from 3:20 to 3:22 you can see he twists as he goes down and theres a very audible 'Ow'.

In that case, by WWE standards it's perfect! Book it

To be fair Bret Hart believes Rollins is an unsafe worker, so will probably blame Rollins for this. I'm sure he's having an internal struggle of who to blame.

Reports are he's torn his MCL again, but its not as severe as first feared and could only be looking at 8 weeks out, so if all goes well he could still make Mania. WWE have already had a meeting to work out a contingency plan if he cant get cleared.

How do we feel about Sami Zayn stepping in as a surrogate for Rollins and booking Zayn vs Joe for Mania, then you can build to HHH vs Rollins at Summerslam.

Storyline it kind of makes more sense for Reigns to step in given the recent mini Shield reunions.

Thankfully he appears to be heading for something else

Storyline wise I'd like to see no-one step up and take his place, Rollins isn't a likeable character, he's a proven snake who has backstabbed his way through the locker-room, I'd rather they addressed this and show him to be a guy no-one in the back cares about, if they want to make him their top face then lets see him earn it, become likeable or at least trust worthy.

No other face was involved in this angle so pushing a guy to step up for him is a bit of a stretch for me, there's no storyline reason why anyone, even Roman Reigns would care about Seth Rollins, now if this injury happened in a tag team match you could at least say "Joe was ordered to hurt someone, anyone who got in his way"... this would at least give them some leeway for a face involved in the match to say "that could've been me"

I'm a big fan of Rollins but the booking of him since his return has been all over the place, the fact they held off HHH for this long left him in limbo and it's now meant we're at a stage where they've neglected him for so long that there isn't a plausible scenario where someone can realistically take his place.

This holding everything they consider to be 'big' off until WrestleMania does more harm than good most of the time, there's times when it just makes sense, Daniel Bryan/HHH was perfection IMO but everything they've tried to do since with Reigns and now Rollins vs HHH just feels like a cheap imitation

I was thinking Sami Zayn because Steph has had it out for him for a while so you could put those two stories together quite easily.

I today read the planned AJ Styles v Shane McMahon match may be changed to do Shane v Triple H, and AJ v Finn Balor with the whole Bullet Club story!

That would be cool.

They cant do that as they've already had the Shield reunions. Dean and Roman look like massive derps if Seth is not at least semi-trusted face right now.

What if the sell is that HHH was the one that pushed Seth to backstab his fellow Shield members and Roman recognised this? My main problem is that we've seen Roman vs Trips before not that it doesnt make sense, Roman was the main guy inconvenienced by HHH backing Rollins as his protege given Dean was pushed to the lower card side.

AJ/Balor writes itself, but not sure how they'll work Shane vs Trips. Rather neither were on the card if the story isn't gonna work.

Of course it writes itself, but, you can't just have Balor attack AJ or vice versa with a few weeks notice. This is the WWE, they will rush it and ruin what could potentially be a huge angle later on in the year.

Does it write itself?

Only if you watch Japanese wrestling does it.

Balor attacking Styles would make no sense whatsoever - unless it was double turn
Balor returning (which would be on Raw) and being attacked by Styles who wants a rematch for the WWE Title on Smackdown makes no senses
Unless Balor gets a shot at the WWE Title for some unknown reason which makes no sense.
All told, they may have history (invisible history to 95% of WWE fans) but there is no way to make it make sense.

Then Triple H screwing Rollins made no sense - didn't stop them doing it.

I really don't think they do.

I only know from reading on here - and that is in the vaguest terms. I know there is something called the Bullet Club and they were both in it, possibly leaders.

It's the reason nobody gives a crap about Gallows and Anderson.

They only give a crap about AJ because his performances warranted it.

Nobody gives a crap about Gallows and Anderson because everyone knows Gallows was the same Luke Gallows from CM Punk's failed little stable, and before that Festus. He was awful then, and nothing has changed.

With respect, ED, you're basing it on you not knowing, whereas others may actually know who they are and where they come from.

Just like with Omega, people overestimate the reach of NJPW.

I know about as much as Demon and I'm pretty well informed.

AJ Styles and Finn Balor have no history in WWE and as far as I am aware don't even have history in Japan? Styles arrived after Balor had left.

I read a wrestling forum pretty much every day and subscribe to a wrestling magazine and I only know in the broadest sense what the Bullet Club is. I couldn't even name one other member!

Most WWE fans just watch it.

I'm sure the fans would buy into it - because Styles can get a 4* match out of a paper bag and people love Balor for some reason, must be something addictive in them double legged drop kicks he does over and over like someone who doesn't know the controls on 2K17

But it would have nothing to do with history. Only for the select few elitists.

They are only tied by the Bullet Club, but it's an easy link to make, though I think there's only 2 ways to play it.

You assume it's all about the reach of NJPW, but Omega has wrestled with ROH, DDT and PWG....just a few names he wrestled in PWG....

Davey Richards (ROH, TNA)
Bryan Danielson (WWE's Daniel Bryan, ROH)
Roderick Strong (ROH, NXT)
Kevin Steen (WWE Universal Champion, Kevin Owens)
El Generico (WWE's Sami Zayn)

Any 'fan' of the indies is going to know who he is.

That being said, if they were going to do anything with a Bullet Club tie in, you'd want Omega involved,.

Its pretty easy. It takes one promo to build the link for those that don't know it, and then they make their own animosity build. The building blocks are pretty easy, and for some that is the hardest part.

Assuming the Balor is even in a position to return?

It wouldn't hurt to do a cross-promotion match, and it could easily be built without Balor being on screen for a while. With Shane choosing AJ, and then Raw having people attempt to 'qualify' to face him, only for Foley to select Balor.

I think WWE have shown that the less time they have to build a feud the more effective they are, personally I think 3 weeks is the sweet spot, that's 15 hours of TV for a co-brand match
