That sound you can hear is a great big spanner hurtling into WWE’s plans.
The company have tonight confirmed that WWE World Heavyweight champion Seth Rollins has torn his right ACL, MCL and medial meniscus, and will be out of action for six to nine months. The injury occurred during a live event in Dublin, Ireland.
Consequently, his scheduled title defense against Roman Reigns at Survivor Series is off a tournament will be held to crown a new WWE World Heavyweight champion.
Former WWE personality Jonathan Coachman broke the news on Twitter, and was shortly after confirmed on the WWE website.
