There is concern behind the scenes in WWE after the announcement of Seth Rollins. Through social networks, the fighter reported that he was infected with coronavirus. In this regard, the company’s plans changed at the last minute with a view to the live event held on Sunday night, December 26 at Madison Square Garden.
“Merry COVID Christmas to me! I love football!”said the former champion of the company. Soon, the alarms went off by the logical previous contact between the superstars. In fact, the surprising absence of some gladiators raised suspicions, although only Seth made it official.
For example, Seth Rollins is a partner of Becky Lynch and the current Raw women’s champion was not present at the famous arena last weekend. Neither did Bianca Belair (rival of ‘The Man’) or Big E, current WWE monarch, who had to compete against the athlete appeared. It is unknown, for now, if all are also infected.
At Madison Square Garden, Rollins was scheduled to fight Kevin Owens and Big E inside a cage. But, two of the protagonists did not attend the evening. So they were both replaced by Edge, who entered the cell to have a heads-up against Owens.
More changes to the poster
It was also known that on SmackDown, the other WWE brand, there were news. The main event featured an appearance by Roman Reigns. However, the blue belt owner did not compete against Drew McIntyre and The New Day. In the end, the Scotsman teamed up with Sheamus to clash with The Usos.
Likewise (as with Becky Lynch, Bianca Belair and Big E), the reason he left the Samoan out is unknown. So far, WWE avoided speaking out when it had been infected with coronavirus among the talent it has in the company. Vince McMahon and company left that matter in the hands of each superstar and an example is Seth Rollins.
¿Y ‘Day 1’?
WWE will open 2022 in a big way with the event called ‘Day 1′. The show will be the first day of next year and will be in Atlanta, Georgia. After Rollins’ positive, it is clear that there must be changes to the original card, as Seth would seek the title of the ‘red mark’ against Big E, the headline, and Kevin Owens.
On his side, Roman Reigns will defend the SmackDown championship against Brock Lesnar, Becky Lynch (Rollins’ partner) puts the ‘red mark’ belt at stake against Liv Morgan, among other scheduled matches. For now, in the absence of officialization, some modification is expected on the card and the news should be known on the Raw broadcast on December 27.
