According to Rollins, he re-injured his right knee, which was surgically repaired back in 2015.

The injury prevented him from performing for seven months. As a result, he was forced to vacate the WWE Championship and missed last year's Royal Rumble and WrestleMania. He returned back to in-ring action on May 22, 2016.

Seth Rollins tweeted this photo showing his right knee:

Wish I could say it was just a bad dream.


Rollins sent out the following statement over a series of tweets:

"Wanted to take a second to thank everyone who has reached out to me over the last two days. Life doesn't always go your way, but that is no excuse to surrender. If anything, obstacles exist to help us grow and evolve. This reinjury to my surgically repaired knee is real and a lot is up in the air right now, but one thing remains constant: my resolve. This doesn't end for me until I've reclaimed the throne. And for me, fighting and defeating Triple H is the only way. I will work harder than I ever have and push myself beyond what I know. This isn't over. The only way to wear the crown is to slay the king. I know what must be done and there's nothing that can stop me."
