While many expected Samoa Joe to make his main roster debut at the Royal Rumble, he instead made his presence felt on Monday Night RAW at the expense of Seth Rollins.
Joe came out to support Triple H after Rollins successfully coaxed him into ring and brutally tossed around the superstar like a rag doll into every barrier he could find. He then locked in a coquina clutch just to make his point, leaving Rollins decimated in the middle of the ring.
Fans figured Rollins would make a comeback on next Monday's RAW, entering into a feud with Joe over the next several weeks, as is routine for these types of events. That might be in jeopardy however if the latest footage of Rollins is actually real and not a work. WWE released a video of Rollins exiting the arena on crutches and reported that he re-injured his right knee during his altercation with Joe. It says he's set to get evaluated later this week, and if it's true Rollins could be sidelined throughout the rest of WrestleMania season.
It's the same knee that Rollins worked so hard to come back from after he injured it at a house show in Dublin Ireland back in 2014. If this is real, it will mandate a reshuffling of talent to accommodate Joe and Triple H. If not, then odds are you'll see Rollins reenter the ring next Monday night.
