Seth Rollins Leg Injury Casts Doubt on Upcoming WWE Live Events

In light of this, Randy Orton is now being promoted as Rollins’ replacement.

Following this week’s WWE Raw episode, concerns about the health of World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins surfaced after an apparent leg injury during his main event title defense against Jinder Mahal. While the extent of Rollins’ injury remains unknown, a recent report from PWI Elite has revealed that Rollins has been removed from the lineup for this weekend’s WWE live events in Alabama and Mississippi. In light of this, Randy Orton is now being promoted as Rollins’ replacement.

The injury became apparent when Rollins was seen limping during his untelevised post-match promo on Monday, leading to him being escorted backstage by WWE officials. Reports indicate that Rollins is set to undergo testing, including an MRI, to assess the severity of the injury to his left leg.

This development comes less than two weeks before WWE’s 2024 Royal Rumble event scheduled for January 27 at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida. As of Monday, Rollins was not slated to defend his title at the Royal Rumble. Meanwhile, Randy Orton, now designated as Rollins’ substitute for the live events, is gearing up for a four-way match challenging Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship, also featuring AJ Styles and LA Knight.

Rollins is expected to address his health and status on the upcoming episode of Monday Night RAW. The injury is reported to have occurred during his world heavyweight title defense against Jinder Mahal, and Rollins is reportedly contending with multiple knee injuries leading into the Royal Rumble and the WrestleMania season. The situation adds an element of uncertainty and speculation to Rollins’ immediate future in the WWE, with fans eagerly awaiting updates on the champion’s condition and potential adjustments to the upcoming events.
