Seth Rollins Talks WWE Return
While chatting with Good Morning Football, the WWE World Champion was asked about whether he would be back for WM 40. His response was, “Oh WM 40, no problem!”
He notes, “We got this bad boy. We got this.” Rollins also states, “I’ll be back way before then, for sure.”
The WWE Champ goes on to say that tearing his MCL and meniscus “sucks” and “it’s not comfortable”. But he’s doing all the right things and going to rehab.
