WWE’s feeling about the move, which the WWE World Heavyweight Champion uses as his finisher, is that it’s too much of a direct liability and risk for a head injury.
All of sport is trying to be more proactive when it comes to preventing head injuries and concussions, and this is the reason for WWE banning the curb stomp.

They are also set to ban video replays of him using the Curb Stomp from months before when he was a member of The Shield. This is why last week on RAW when Rollins came out, the video which played during his entrance was primarily just graphics of his name.
The normal entrance video for Rollins features a compilation of clips, several of which are him performing the curb stomp.

This comes just after Daniel Bryan was said to have been diagnosed with a concussion before WWE backtracked and said that the former World Champion didn't in fact have a head injury, he was just pretty beaten up.
Bryan and Dolph Ziggler are two of the current WWE superstars who are thought to be a concussion risk, and it makes sense that WWE are acting now in the hope of prolonging current WWE superstars careers.
WWE have been sued by many former superstars regarding head injuries and now the company is trying to be proactive and make sure that the current superstars have no risk of developing neurological injuries long after their WWE careers are over.
Randy Orton's punt kick was banned by WWE a few years ago after it was thought to be a dangerous move, and chair shots to the head were also banned. Whilst it is seen to be a good idea that WWE are thinking about their talent and the risks they face when they step in the ring, it is also only right to consider that wrestling is a business full of risks, the superstars know the risks and taking away moves from a superstars move-set wont make the job any less risky.
Seth Rollins is yet to comment on the move that he has used as far back as his Tyler Black days in Ring of Honor, and it is currently unknown what the WWE World Heavyweight Champion will use to replace the move he has made famous.
