WWE superstar Seth Rollins suffered a rib injury during his Universal Championship match with Kevin Owens at Clash of Champions, but according to NoDQ, it's just slight tissue damage.
Rollins and Owens main evented the Monday Night Raw Pay-Per-View, and the former Shield member hurt his ribs after being dropped onto the champion's knee from the top rope.
It was a big impact move, and immediately after the spot happened, it was clear that Rollins was in serious pain, clutching his ribs and remaining to do so throughout the remainder of the match.

Eventually, Owens defeated Rollins and retained his title, with the help of Chris Jericho, but for Rollins, it's yet another injury.
However, the good news for Rollins and the WWE Universe, it's not a long-term injury and the Architect should be back in the ring sooner rather than later.
During Raw, Mick Foley clearly stated that Rollins was in no fit state to compete and officially deemed him medically unfit to have a match.
Despite that, it didn't stop Rollins from trying to make his way down to the ring to go face-to-face with Jericho and Owens, only to be stopped by a security team.
It was never actually stated what was wrong with Rollins, but according to NoDQ, he suffered slight tissue damage to his ribs, which means he should be fit to compete sooner rather than later.
There isn't a deadline or an expected return date as of yet, but it shouldn't be too long.
If Rollins had cracked or broken his rib, he'd have been looking at another six to 12 weeks on the shelf.
