Rollins has been absent from WWE TV ever since we saw him 'sacrificing' himself for the greater good at Survivor Series 2020. The former Universal Champion had donned the gimmick of The Messiah around a year ago and showed shades of the same at the event during a Traditional 5-on-5 Survivor Series Elimination match. He allowed Sheamus to put him down and cover him for the pin, thus leading to his elimination.
