Roman Reigns was booked to defeat Seth Rollins for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at Survivor Series prior to Rollins’ injury this week, according to a source on WWE’s creative team.
While we are still more than 10 days away from the event and plans still could have changed, Rollins was going to drop the title to Reigns this month. A rematch was already planned for December’s TLC pay-per-view and Rollins was going to be in the WWE Championship picture through WrestleMania 32. Obviously, all those plans are out the window now that Rollins will require extensive knee surgery that will keep him out of action until mid-2016.
Rollins is currently scheduled to fly home today from the UK and will be undergoing surgery in the next few days.
