Backstage News on Why Seth Rollins “Sacrificed” Himself at Survivor Series – As seen at Survivor Series this past Sunday, Seth Rollins “sacrificed” himself during the five-on-five traditional elimination match.
Rollins tagged in, then dropped to his knees and requested Sheamus take him out “for the greater good.” Sheamus proceeded to Brogue Kick Rollins, cover him for the 1-2-3, and eliminate him first from the match. This led to a clean sweep with no eliminations for the RAW Superstars.
While many think this was the beginning of a storyline of some sort, the segment was made to write The Messiah off WWE TV, as Sunday’s WWE Survivor Series was the last appearance for Rollins until after his fiancée, Becky Lynch, gives birth.
Lynch announced her pregnancy on the May 11 edition of Monday Night RAW, and has been absent from WWE TV ever since.
Around the time Lynch announced her pregnancy, she also revealed her due date is in December. Considering that the next WWE pay-per-view, WWE TLC, is scheduled for December 20, 2020, it makes sense that Rollins would be written out of storylines now before the build-up to the December PPV begins.
There’s no timetable on when Rollins will return, but given that he will likely miss WWE TLC, it is possible his return is saved for a surprise appearance in the men’s Royal Rumble match, although it has been rumored that Rollins’s absence will be brief.
Earlier today, Rollins posted a black-and-white cryptic tweet of his “sacrifice” at Survivor Series with no caption. You can see the tweet below:
