Seth Rollins tearing multiple ligaments in his knee has sent shockwaves throughout the entire WWE Universe.

The former World Heavyweight Champion was forced to vacate his Championship following the reveal that he would miss the next six-to-nine months, with a tournament booked for Survivor Series to crown a new WWE Champion.

Rollins Face Turn

Whilst this is obviously heartbreaking and painful for Rollins as a person, it is a fantastic chance for his character to finally become a babyface upon his return. That is exactly what the WWE have to do.

The WWE were always looking for an angle to turn Rollins into a babyface and now they have been gift-wrapped that opportunity. As the saying goes "absence makes the heart grow fonder" and that will certainly be the case for Seth.

Follow Triple H

One just has to look at Triple H's return in 2002 following the quadriceps injury that kept him out for the better part of a year. HHH suffered his injury at a time when he was one of the biggest heels in the company and returned to one of the loudest pops in the history of the WWE.

Rollins the High Flyer

Rollins' natural high-flying move-set has always made him a more natural babyface and it is time for him to fully embrace that upon his return, ditching the Pedigree for either a Phoenix Splash or the Skywalker.

Just look at that video of Rollins' best moves from his NXT, FCW and Indy days. That somersault plancha is a thing of beauty and the WWE Universe needs to see more of it.

So, with either Roman Reigns or Dean Ambrose turning heel in the upcoming weeks - which has to happen - it would be a perfect opportunity to bring Rollins back as a face and he would become the top babyface in the company quicker than you can say "You sold out."
