Seth Rollins refuses to miss WrestleMania despite his injury

The World Heavyweight champion Seth Rollins kicked-off Monday Night Raw, addressing the WWE Universe about the state of his injury. He confirmed that he suffered a torn MCL and said he would have to go trough surgery according to the doctors; but he does not intend to miss WrestleMania. Indeed, a surgery would put him out of action for 3 to 4 months, but he said he made the promise of bringing and defending his championship at WrestleMania, and he wants to keep that promise. We will see what that means for him in the next weeks. Will he be able to compete at WrestleMania? Will he undergo surgery after the event? Who will be his opponent if he’s performing? Many questions are still not answered at this point.
