Seth Rollins: 'Survivor Series Winner Will Only Be Keeping My WWE Title Warm For Me'
Seth Rollins reckons he's in a "tough spot" as he recovers from a torn ACL, MCL and medial meniscus.
Rollins has been forced to vacate his WWE World Heavyweight championship after sustaining injuries in the headlining match of a live event in Dublin last week - and although he is optimistic about the future, he admits he has taken quite a knock.
He told WWE.com: "Physically, my knee doesn’t hurt. Like, one thing people don’t understand, a common question is, 'How much pain are you in?' The ligaments don’t have nerve endings, so, that’s a good thing and a bad thing, but I don’t feel any pain, it’s just a lot of instability in the knee capsule.
"So, I’m doing a lot of compression to kind of reduce the swelling and stuff like that.
"Emotionally … could be better. Obviously it’s a tough spot to be in. I’m mostly just looking forward to getting the surgery done and getting better every day."

And although he could miss out on Wrestlemania in April, the athletic standout made it clear whoever claims the title at Survivor Series will only be keeping it warm for him.
Seth added: "You know, for me, over the last seven months I really put my stamp on that title as mine. I’ve defended it against literally everyone that has come at me and done it successfully, so for me to have to vacate the title like that, I’m not afraid of whatever happens at Survivor Series.
"Whoever happens to come out with the championship, as far as I’m concerned, they’re an interim champion and kind of just holding on to my title until I get back.
"They can look at it however they want, but for me, I’m the best and I’ve never lost my title. So, when I get back, I plan on picking up where I left off."
