Having been spotted sporting some protective tape on his
fingers last night, it’s believed that Seth Rollins recently suffered a finger injury.
According to The
Wrestling Observer, Rollins broke his little finger during a Street Fight
against Erick Rowan on this past Sunday’s Augusta, Georgia house show. This was
the main reason why his planned match against Cedric Alexander didn’t take
place on Raw last night.
Moving forward, WWE has yet to officially announce Seth
Rollins vs. Kevin Owens for Sunday’s TLC PPV, and that match is currently being
held off on while Seth’s injury heals. Of course, this burgeoning feud is only
in its infancy, so there’s no harm in holding off on any such TLC bout if The
Architect is dealing with some discomfort – even if the multiple-time World
Champion has been medically cleared by WWE doctors.
After several months of negative crowd reactions, WWE
finally pulled the trigger on the heel turn of Seth Rollins on last night’s
outing for the red brand. Being revealed to be in cahoots with The Authors of
Pain, Seth sent KO to the hospital before declaring how his change of character
was down to his actions never being good enough for the WWE Universe.
With Universal Champion Brock Lesnar not expected back on
WWE programming until the Royal Rumble or beyond, Rollins vs. Owens is the
rivalry that will be headlining the Raw brand for the next few months.
