It would seem WWE isn’t yet ready to shut the door on Seth Rollins working WrestleMania 33 on April 2 in Orlando.
The company promised an injury update on tonight’s (Feb. 6, 2017) episode of Monday Night Raw in Portland and said update was to confirm he suffered a torn MCL during Samoa Joe’s attack on last week’s episode. They did not, however, say he would missing WrestleMania because of it.
Just that his status for the big show is “in serious doubt.”
The word from reports online earlier in the day was Rollins had flown back to Alabama for another meeting with doctors but WWE did not confirm or deny that. Here’s how they played it:
.@WWERollins tweeted an update about his knee injury. His availability for @WrestleMania 33 is still unknown. #RAW @SamoaJoe @TripleH pic.twitter.com/WTYsgQPqoB— WWE (@WWE) February 7, 2017
That could mean another trip to Alabama would be to determine if he could make it back in time for the show. A torn MCL would make that timeline unlikely but wrestlers have come back quicker than one would think possible from injuries before.
We shall see if the same can be said here.
