Seth Rollins' brutal knee injury sent a shock-wave around the entire WWE Universe.
Vince McMahon and the WWE Creative Team were forced to rewrite all the plans they had for now until WrestleMania 32 next year while WWE fans were both shocked and saddened by the fact that they wouldn't see the former World Heavyweight Champion on TV for the next six-to-nine months.
Rollins tore his ACL and MCL while also damaging the meniscus in his right knee, which is a serious injury needing invasive surgery. For some reason, the WWE decided to record Rollins' operation.

Rollins suffered his injury in Dublin, Ireland but rather than have his operation in the Emerald Isle, the company decided to fly the former Champ back to Alabama to have the surgery.
At the Andrews Sports Medicine and Orthopaedic Center, Rollins had his knee almost completely rebuilt. You can watch the footage of it below...
The 29-year-old reiterated that he was going to rehab and get back in the ring as quickly as possible, so he can take back his title.
"I’m coming back harder and faster and reclaiming my throne, and what is mine," he vowed.
Thanking The Fans
Following the surgery, Rollins posted the following thank you to fans on his personal Facebook page:
“Huge thanks to everyone who has reached out and extended their support over the last week. Means a lot to me. Surgery is done and I’m on the mend! Every day is forward movement now. I’ll be back it before you can even miss me.”
Hopefully, Rollins will return as a babyface and become a fans favorite as he tries to reclaim the WWE Championship.
