The WWE will be crowning a new WWE World Heavyweight Champion at Survivor Series after current champion Seth Rollins suffered a knee injury during a match against Kane at a WWE Live Event in Ireland Wednesday night.
ESPN’s Jonathan Coachman, a former WWE commentator that still has a close relationship with the company, reported that Rollins had torn his ACL, MCL, and meniscus in his right knee. The injury will take at least six months to heal.
He also reported, which was later confirmed by WWE, that a tournament would be held at Survivor Series to crown a new champion. Rollins was originally scheduled to face former SHIELD partner Roman Reigns in a one-on-one match for the championship.
The WWE is surely going to be hurting for main event guys now that Rollins is out. It was reported on Monday that Randy Orton would need surgery for a torn rotator cuff and John Cena is rumored to be taking some time off.
