Seth Rollins will be taking some time off to be with Becky Lynch as she will be giving birth to their first child next month.
He is likely to be gone anywhere between four to six weeks and could return by January next year. Before that he will have to finish up all the storylines he is involved with.
On this week’s episode of Friday Night Smackdown, Seth Rollins will be squaring off against Murphy in a singles match. He will be finishing up his storyline with Murphy this week and he already wrapped up his storyline with Rey Mysterio last week.
According to a report by The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, those matches which served to end the storylines happened all of a sudden and had no advertising as they were likely made at the last minute.
This has been known for at least a little while but the idea of his doing the blow-off match out of nowhere with no advertising with Mysterio is because of that, but the idea of not advertising it ahead of time is likely because they didn’t come up with the idea until the last minute given the entire show was rewritten.
We will have to see what WWE will have planned for Rollins once has makes his return.
