• WWE Taking Extra Care Of Seth Rollins Ahead Of WrestleMania 35
Men’s Royal Rumble 2019 winner Seth Rollins is set to face “The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship in the co-main event of WrestleMania 35.
However, Rollins has a bad back and that’s why he took a month off from in-ring action after Royal Rumble 2019.
While Rollins can still wrestle (as seen at FastLane 2019 and this week on RAW), WWE officials are still taking extra care of Rollins ahead of WrestleMania 35 and they’ve taken him off WWE Live Events so he can take proper rest and only compete when it’s necessary on TV.
WWE officials expect Rollins to be 100% ready by April 7th for his big match against Lesnar.
Speaking of Rollins, he’s set to face “The Scottish Psychopath” Drew McIntyre on next week’s RAW from Chicago.
