Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins reunited in 2017 and captured the WWE Raw Tag Team Championships...

What's the story?

Wrestling Inc. reported on a recent interview that Seth Rollins had with MLive to promote Monday Night Raw in Detroit, Michigan this week. During the interview, they discussed missing WrestleMania, which is something his good friend Dean Ambrose will have to go through this year.

In case you didn't know...

Before joining WWE, Rollins made his mark in Ring Of Honor as Tyler Black. He held the ROH World Tag Team Championships a total of two times with current Impact Wrestling manager Jimmy Jacobs.

On February 13, 2010, Black defeated Austin Aries to win the ROH World Heavyweight Championship, a title he would hold for 210 days before losing it to current NXT Superstar Roderick Strong.

The heart of the matter...

Dean Ambrose, he will not be able to take part at WrestleMania 34 in New Orleans on April 8th due to a triceps tendon injury. This injury will likely keep Ambrose out of SummerSlam as well, with an expected return date of September.

Rollins mentions that prior to their major injuries, they had escaped missing a lengthy period away from the squared circle in their careers. He also mentioned that the injury was a blessing in disguise as it gave him time to experience new things.

Regarding Ambrose having to miss WrestleMania this year, Rollins said the following:

"If you're going to get hurt, the period around WrestleMania is the worst time. Ambrose is the man. He'll be back. It's not about WrestleMania this year, it's about WrestleMania next year and the year after that. It's about the long term."

What's next?

Hopefully, Ambrose has a speedy recovery to the point where he can make SummerSlam this year. As for Rollins, he is a part of the triple threat match for the WWE Intercontinental Championship at WrestleMania 34 against The Miz and Finn Balor.

Author's take...

My favorite wrestler in the WWE is Dean Ambrose, and it is a bummer that he will not be able to compete at WrestleMania this year. Hopefully, he's able to come back this fall ready to roll, and maybe even get The Shield back together for that full reunion tour that was cut short.
