WWE is reporting that Seth Rollins re-injured his right knee during the closing segment of this past Monday’s RAW during Samoa Joe’s attack. It was noted that Rollins will be evaluated later this week.
PWInsider confirmed that the injury is not a storyline, and Rollins is currently in Birmingham, Alabama to get examined. Once he’s examined, it will be more clear how serious the injury is and if it will force him to miss WrestleMania 33. Rollins was scheduled to be in one of the featured bouts on the card against Triple H.
While not confirmed, Rollins did appear to fall awkwardly when being taken down by Joe in the Coquina Clutch, as seen in the video at the 3:20 mark.
Rollins was forced to miss 6 months of action after tearing the ACL, MCL, and medial meniscus in his knee during a match with Kane at a WWE live event in November of 2015. The then-WWE World Heavyweight Champion was forced to vacate his title, and missed last year’s WrestleMania 32 pay-per-view.
Rollins is in Birmingham, Alabama today to be examined but there’s no word yet on when he will be back in action.
Rollins tweeted the following from Birmingham today:
