As the WWE Universe continues to debate the merits of Sheamus as the new WWE Heavyweight champion, Seth Rollins, the man who was forced to relinquish the title back at the start of the month, is continuing his rehabilitation.
With a four-six month timeline on his recovery following surgery to fix a torn ACL, MCL and meniscus, however, it is a long road ahead for Rollins.
Still, judging by a new video published today by the WWE, it looks like the former Shield member is in determined mood. Scroll down this article to see the first glimpse of Rollins on the road to recovery, as well as hearing from the man himself on his current situation.

"The progress I've made so far is pretty good," Rollins explains in the footage. "The rehab is starting to get a little tedious as far as the day-to-day repetition of everything and the slow progression, but every day is getting better."
Rollins, of course, suffered the injury whilst taking part in a match in Dublin, Ireland as part of the WWE's European Tour back on November 4.
As you can see, Rollins is putting in 100-percent effort in his bid to return to the WWE as soon as possible, working five-hours-per-day down at the Champion Sports Medicine center in Birmingham, Alabama.
Road to recovery
However, the video also makes clear just how complex the injury is, and how tough the rehabilitation process is so we shouldn't expect to see the revered heel back in the ring anytime soon.
One exciting note, though, comes from Dr. Kevin Wilk, the Associate Clinical Director at Champion Sports Medicine. Speaking toward the end of the video, Wilk says he "expects him (Rollins) to be even better than before."
