The official WWE website is reporting that Seth Rollins’ right knee was re-injured during Samoa Joe’s attack on Monday’s Raw.
The website posted footage of Rollins leaving the Laredo Energy Arena in Laredo, Texas, Monday night with crutches. The article also goes on to note the Rollins is set to be evaluated later this week.
Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet is reporting the injury Seth Rollins suffered on Monday's WWE Raw is legitimate, and Rollins' status for WrestleMania 33 in April is uncertain.
Rollins' tore his right ACL, MCL and medial meniscus in November 2015 which left him out of action for a number of months. The latest injury, to the same knee will be evaluated later this week.
All indications were pointing to a long-awaited match between Rollins and Triple H at WrestleMania, but those plans could now amount to nothing if Rollins is unable to compete on the grandest stage of them all. WWE officials are reportedly working on alternative plans for Triple H should Rollins be officially ruled out of action.
Seth Rollins has issued the following statement regarding his knee injury on Twitter:
"Wanted to take a second to thank everyone who has reached out to me over the last two days. Life doesn't always go your way, but that is no excuse to surrender. If anything, obstacles exist to help us grow and evolve. This reinjury to my surgically repaired knee is real and a lot is up in the air right now, but one thing remains constant: my resolve. This doesn't end for me until I've reclaimed the throne. And for me, fighting and defeating Triple H is the only way. I will work harder than I ever have and push myself beyond what I know. This isn't over. The only way to wear the crown is to slay the king. I know what must be done and there's nothing that can stop me."
