It’s been known for a while that one half of the former Raw Tag Team Champions Jason Jordan has been dealing with an injury and WWE has been trying to protect him.
However, in the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reported that his partner, Seth Rollins is also working hurt and he is dealing with neck and back issues:
“He has a neck injury (not a back injury as listed last week) which is significant. He has been working and they have been trying to protect him by having him do as little as possible. Jordan is having issues with his grip and that is usually very serious. Rollins is also working on a bad back.”
Although interestingly, The Architect himself denied these rumors after the story picked up. He denied the speculations via the following tweet saying that his back is fine:
Guys, my back is fine. Has been fine. #fakenews

It’s worth mentioning here that Jinder Mahal was also working through a shoulder injury during his WWE Championship run last year. At first, he had claimed that these rumors were not true but then accepted that he had issues shortly after losing the Championship to AJ Styles.
With Wrestlemania being around the corner it’s possible WWE is trying to hide Rollins’ injury. We’ll keep you posted on any further development in the situation.
