WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins is currently in a heated feud with Shinsuke Nakamura, and the two are set to face off tonight at WWE Payback. As part of the build-up to their match, Nakamura has been “exposing” Rollins’ bad back and the injuries he has been dealing with.
During a recent episode of RAW, Rollins revealed that he has been working through two fractures in his lumbar spine for the past four years. He admitted that the injury has been getting worse and expressed uncertainty about how much longer he can perform at his current level. However, it appears that Rollins’ health may not be as dire as it was portrayed on RAW.
In a recent interview on WWE After The Bell with Corey Graves and Kevin Patrick, Rollins discussed the status of his back. He candidly stated, “My back sucks. I’ve had these injuries for four or five years now. I have two stress fractures in the lowest vertebrae you can possibly have in my lower back, and occasionally they flare up.”
Rollins went on to describe the severity of the pain he experiences, saying, “If they accrue too much damage, it can become extremely painful. It can be very difficult for me to get through matches and it can be very difficult for me to get up for the morning activities for days sometimes. So there is absolutely a danger in that.”
Despite his ongoing battle with these injuries, Rollins has continued to compete at a high level and defend his championship. His determination and resilience have earned him the respect of fans and fellow wrestlers alike.
