• Top Raw Star Lucky, Not Missing His 2nd WrestleMania In 3 Years
As we noted before, top Raw star Seth Rollins was dealing with a back injury.
WWE officials were worried that if Rollins was suffering from a torn lumbar disc, then he would end up missing WrestleMania 34 (which would’ve been the second time he would miss the Show of Shows in three years).
However, the tests showed that Rollins was only suffering from a minor muscle tear.
This led to WWE officials adding him to the Men’s Elimination Chamber (which was also the original plan).
