We all know Seth Rollins was suppose to put his WWE World Heavyweight Championship on the line against Roman Reigns at Survivor Series before he tore his ACL, MCL, and medial meniscus in his knee, sidelining him for up to nine months.

The scheduled result of that match has now been revealed which may shock some members of the WWE Universe.

According to Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio, via Wrestling News: "Roman Reigns was scheduled to defeat Seth Rollins for the WWE Championship at Survivor Series.

"Meltzer had previously said that he figured that Roman would win the title but he was recently able to confirm that those were the plans. There is no word on if plans have changed now that the plan is to do a tournament due to Rollins’ injury."

Rollins suffered his knee injury during a during a WWE Live Event in Dublin, Ireland last week. He is not expected to be back in action until around SummerSlam next year. 

Everyone had expected Reigns to eventually win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, but no one would have expected it to be as soon as Survivor Series even before Rollins got hurt.

A lot of people thought this match would have been a base for what would be a long feud cumulating at WrestleMania 32 next year, but this is no longer the case.

The odds are Reigns will still win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at Survivor Series, but it will be interesting to see who he feuds with for it. Big names like Brock Lesnar have been rumored to be brought back early to help with Rollins' absence, so it could be one of them.

Or it could be someone we least expect to go up against him. Someone like Daniel Bryan or Dean Ambrose perhaps. Hopefully, the WWE sheds some more light on the entire situation later tonight on Raw.
