Rollins was sidelined with injury when he tore his ACL, MCL and medial meniscus in one of his knees during a WWE Live event in Dublin, Ireland.
Reign retained the champion’s title against AJ Styles in a second-straight pay-per-view in hostile territory.
Rollins slid into the ring behind the back of the celebrating champion, kicked him in the gut and nailed him with a Pedigree. He then picked up the WWE World Heavyweight Title and held the prize high above his head.
