WWE: Huge update on future of Seth Rollins' Curb Stomp finisher

Published 135 Comments

Seth Rollins is having a pretty good time of it right now in the WWE.

Sitting pretty at the top of the business after usurping his former stable mate Roman Reigns to claim the Heavyweight title in a show-stopping WrestleMania 31 performance, there is only one thing irking the Superstar and his fans right now.

Finisher finished?

The disappearance of Rollins' signature 'Curb Stomp' finisher move has been met with disappointment across the WWE Universe and many within the business have speculated it could be gone for good. A new update today, though, has given hope that it isn't all over just yet.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, in its latest issue, reveals that the 'Curb Stomp' move has simply been put "on hold" by the WWE as they continue to deal with concussion lawsuits that have surfaced in recent months.

This in contrary to previous rumors which seemed to suggest that Seth Rollins would never be able to perform his much-loved finisher in the WWE ring again.

Of course, whether the WWE Universe does get to see the stomp in action likely hinges on the outcome of the concussion lawsuits. For instance, if the lawsuits do not fall in favor of the WWE then it is highly unlikely that Rollins would be able to bring back his favorite move that sees him slam down on an opponents head.

If, though, the WWE's traditionally successful legal arm comes out on top, and does it quickly, then Seth Rollins could be back to having his full arsenal of options sooner rather than later.

Concussion concern

Seeing the Curb Stomp back in action would be a huge thrill for fans there is no doubt about it, and having it back in time for the run of summer PPVs would be a huge boost as Rollins looks to stay on top.

Perhaps, though, the bigger question here should be whether the WWE and its Superstars should be performing moves that put their long-term health in jeopardy at all?

With wrestlers spanning the last three decades teaming up to take on the WWE over the organization's lack of care for their stars, concern over concussion is finally being taken seriously.

Yes, Seth Rollins' 'Curb Stomp' is set up to avoid any lasting damage but the mere fact it leaves the rival Superstar in apparent agony after a lethal shot to the head leaves the wrestler, and the WWE, in murky territory.

WWE fans: Should Seth Rollins be allowed to use his 'Curb Stomp' move despite the pressure outside the ring? Have your say in the comments section below...
