Former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins, recently spoke with ESPN Fayetteville and discussed his first knee injury that he suffered at a house show, which put him on the shelf for sixth months.
Seth On His Injury & Recovering:
“Probably after my knee injury. It was a pretty devastating knee injury; with the MCL, ACL, and meniscus all getting ripped and having to be surgically repaired. There was a lot of doubt as far as where do I fit in when I come back, can I physically handle the wear and tear of what we do. Am I going to be the same performer as I was before, am I going to be skittish. A lot of confidence had to be rebuilt from a lot of different areas and I’m still working on that. But, at the same time, a lot of those questions have been answered. So, for me, that was probably the one time in the last six, seven, eight years where I’ve really been like: ‘Can I still compete at the level that I want to compete at?’ Once I got back in the ring, it was a completely different story. I felt the rush of adrenaline and that got my through pretty much everything. It gave me the confidence that I needed, it felt like riding a bike again.”
