The last time we were here I talked about the countdown to WrestleMania and how we have plenty of time to talk about all the rumors and possibilities as the big event approaches in the first of April. At this point we still have both Raw and Smackdown's last PPV before WrestleMania.
The only difference with installment is that I will only be focusing on one match instead of two like I did in this first edition of the series.
Since last August the match and the feud were rumored and in a way only the second match rumored for Mania was Triple H vs Seth Rollins. Due to the injury sustained by Finn Balor following his match with Seth at Summerslam the Universal title picture changed and that also changed the plans the WWE had in place for the next few months. Because originally both Rollins and Reigns were meant to stay out of the World title picture, but that changed.
Eventually Seth would end his feud with Kevin Owens and break into his feud with Triple H. Now he did end up continuing a feud with Chris Jericho until the latter part of the last year before reigniting his feud with Hunter shortly after Survivor Series. The feud really started to pick up in recent weeks eventually seeing Rollins appear at the latest NXT Takeover event last weekend. This little invasion of sorts lead Hunter to make his return to Monday Night Raw to call out Seth Rollins. Unfortunately, it was on this edition of Monday Night Raw that Seth may have reinjured his knee; the same knee that kept him out of action for around a year.
This injury has put Rollins and Triple H's match and feud in doubt at the very least it has put it in doubt as it pertains to it being a part of WrestleMania this year. Though this is very unfortunate and could be a huge loss for the WWE; looking in the bigger picture this could add a ton of heat to not just Hunter, but also Samoa Joe which may have given the WWE another top heel just in one night. I just hope that no matter what happen to Seth that this injury isn't as serious as his previous knee injury for not just Seth's sake but also for the WWE's sake.
