WWE Rumors: Seth Rollins to continue feud with Samoa Joe upon return from injury

This could be why Joe and Rollins have taken their feud to Twitter after the injury.

Samoa Joe ambushed Rollins from behind on RAW

What’s the story?

According to a report from CagesideSeats, Seth Rollins is likely to continue his feud with Samoa Joe once he returns after his knee injury. Even if he does not make it to WrestleMania 33, it looks a certainty that the feud will continue.

In case you didn’t know…

Rollins sustained a torn ACL, MCL and medial meniscus in 2015 and missed out on a good seven months of action including WrestleMania 32. Earlier this week on Monday Night Raw, he reinjured his knee yet again during an attack by former NXT champion Samoa Joe.

It now seems that Rollins could possibly miss out on the action for eight weeks, with a comeback at WrestleMania 33 being the best case scenario for him.

The heart of the matter

Samoa Joe’s WWE debut has been a much-awaited phenomenon. However, the debut was expected to happen as an entrant in the Royal Rumble match and not as Triple H’s bounty hunter.

Fans were waiting for the final shoe to drop on the stagnant feud between Triple H and Rollins and the story finally dipped into overdrive when the latter, demanding answers from The Game, crashed NXT Takeover: San Antonio.

This eventually led to his ban from the Rumble and set up a confrontation on Monday Night Raw. In the final segment, Rollins got into a verbal showdown with The Game. 

However, before he could go on to attack Triple H, Joe halted him in his tracks, ambushing him from behind and put him to sleep with the Coquina Clutch. Consequently, Rollins’ reconstructed right knee gave in and fans now await his return.

What’s next?

It appears that Rollins has avoided a repeat of 2015 and only his MCL has been damaged this time around, which means his injury is not that serious.

If he manages to make a comeback at WrestleMania, then WWE would be able to go forward with initial plans for a build to a matchup with Triple H and Samoa Joe might be thrown into the mix.

Even if he doesn’t manage to return at the WrestleMania, his feud with Joe will continue while Triple H is likely to get a new opponent.

Sportskeeda’s take

For WWE fans, things could not be more exciting there are now two epic feuds to look forward to – HHH vs. Rollins and Rollins vs. Joe. AS for Joe, the Destroyer made a strong statement by decimating The Architect.
