It happened days ago, but Seth Rollins' knee injury is still generating headlines around the world.
The aftermath of Rollins tearing both the ACL and MCL in his right knee, whilst also damaging his meniscus, has been huge. It has completely changed the main event picture of the WWE and several other plans that the company will have had for the future.
It could also prove to be a massive catalyst of change for Rollins himself, who could be set for a very interesting character turn.

In fact, the man himself seems to be hinting towards a face turn upon his return to the WWE, which will be within the next six-to-nine months.
Rollins sent out a tweet at the weekend saying "It is only after we've lost everything that we are free to do anything. Redesign. Rebuild. Reclaim."You can see the original here...
It seems almost certain that when Rollins does appear again, he will do so as a face. One just has to look at the past example of Triple H, who was a massive heel when he tore a quadricep, but got one of the loudest crowd reactions in WWE history when he came back from injury on RAW.
Rollins has to do something similar. His natural high-flying moveset needs to be unleashed.
If Roman Reigns or Dean Ambrose turn heel in the near future and become dominant, Rollins could easily return and become one of the top babyfaces in the entire WWE.
