Seth Rollins has been absent from in-ring action since the January 15 episode of WWE RAW. He faced Jinder Mahal in a title defense match but tore his MCL and partially tore his meniscus.
Despite the injury, Rollins remains determined to return to the ring for WrestleMania 40.
During a recent appearance on the “Good Morning Football” podcast, Rollins was asked about his chances of recovering in time for WrestleMania 40. He said,
“Oh, WrestleMania 40, no problem. We got this bad boy. We got this. I’ll be back way before then, for sure. I tore my MCL, tore my meniscus about three weeks ago now, and it sucks. If you’ve ever had an MCL sprain or any sort of damage to that part of your knee, it’s not comfortable. But doing all the right things, rehabbing. Fortunately, it was just a partial tear and not a full tear. We’re able to avoid surgery for the time being. We’ll see what happens after WrestleMania. We’ll see how long I can ride on these wheels, but rehab’s going great. I feel great, I feel like I recently just kind of turned a corner, as a matter of fact, on this knee. So I’m feeling really good. Definitely will be ready before WrestleMania, and I’m hoping sometime in the next few weeks.”
