Seth Rollins Says He Is ‘Full Strength’ Again


The Rock & Undisputed WWE Undisputed Champion Roman Reigns vs. Cody Rhodes & WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins is the headliner for WWE WrestleMania 40 (Night One). Night two will feature Reigns vs. Rhodes for the Undisputed WWE Universal Title and Rollins vs. Drew McIntyre for the World Title.

Rollins had suffered a torn MCL and partially torn meniscus after wrestling a match against Jinder Mahal on a January 15 episode of RAW. However, he’s been medically cleared for a few weeks now to compete. This is something he spoke with Sports Illustrated about.

“It was not as serious as it could have been,” he told SI. “My biggest fear when I felt my knee go in the direction it wasn’t supposed to go was that it was going to be a repeat of 2015 [when he tore the ACL, MCL, and medial meniscus in his knee during a match]. I’d have had to vacate the title, miss WrestleMania, all the hard work from the past few years was going up in smoke, and I’d have to start all over. That wasn’t the case. I was able to continue to work on the injury, continue to tell stories and continue to build rivalries. I always looked at it from a glass half full situation.”

He continued, “The fact that we missed out on a few Seth Rollins matches on Raw breaks my heart as much as it does yours, but in the grand scheme of things, it’s all working out in the way it was intended to. I’m happy at full strength and ready to go for not one but two nights of WrestleMania.”
