The former World Heavyweight Champion was forced to give up his belt after tearing multiple ligaments in his right knee during a match against Kane in Dublin.

Speaking to WWE.com in an in-depth interview, Rollins went through exactly what happened on that fateful night that will keep him out of action until after WrestleMania 32.
"I just landed on the inside of my right foot, instead of flat with my feet and my knee gave. If you’ve seen the video, you know it looks pretty graphic. It didn’t feel as graphic though. It just felt like my knee dislocated and then kind of popped back in," Rollins said about the initial incident.
Knee Flopping Around
Rollins went on to add that he could feel how unstable his knee was and rushed to the end of the match, that he won with a pedigree.
"I realized my knee was pretty unstable and noticed that it felt like it was flopping around....Afterwards, I just laid there and [tried to] figure out what was going on. Again, I wasn’t in a whole bunch of pain, I just felt like my knee wasn’t right," he went on to add.
It is heartbreaking that someone as talented as Rollins will be out for a long period, but hopefully this finally sees Seth turn into the biggest babyface in the WWE upon his return.
