Speculation On Seth Rollins’ Return Being Delayed


Seth Rollins has been absent from WWE programming since the Survivor Series PPV

WWE had originally announced that Seth Rollins will be returning to WWE programming on this week’s episode of SmackDown, though now it appears that his comeback might have been delayed.

The company first advertised the return of The Architect for this Friday during the Blue Brand’s Christmas special episode last week.

However, there was no mention of Rollins on the SmackDown preview video that aired on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw, which started some speculations.

The fact that the company has not included any mention of the former Shield member on the written preview for SmackDown and the original tweet announcing his return has also been deleted is suggesting that his return might have been delayed.

Seth Rollins was originally written off TV after the Survivor Series PPV in late November so he could take some time off to be with his fiancé Becky Lynch while she gave birth to their first child together.

At the time it was reported that the former Universal Champion will not stay away from action for very long and he will return to WWE programming after a few weeks of absence.

While the reason for Rollins’ return being delayed in not known yet, it’s still likely that he will make his comeback in next few weeks, before the Royal Rumble PPV.
