Seth Rollins: WWE Officially Announces The Messiah’s Return Date
Seth Rollins was expected to be back in action on this week’s episode of Smackdown after his Royal Rumble appearance, this past Sunday night. But for some reason, that return has been pushed back for one more week. As confirmed, last night, the former Universal Champion will be making his return to WWE SmackDown on FOX next Friday night, instead.
For the first time in more than two months, Seth Rollins made his return to action during Sunday’s 30-Man Royal Rumble Match, but he skipped the latest episode of SmackDown show.
As questions were raised regarding his status among the audience, WWE clarified the confusion by airing a new video package for him and thereby announcing that he will be back on TV for next Friday’s SmackDown.
Seth Rollins had been away from WWE since the Survivor Series pay-per-view in November. He sacrificed himself to Sheamus’ Brogue Kick to get written off WWE TV. In reality, he took some time off to be with fiancée Becky Lynch as she welcomed their first child together in December.
At that point, he just wrapped up a feud with Murphy and The Mysterios. Although there have been some rumors about the angle still continuing on Smackdown, it is likely over that WWE won’t drag this around, anymore.
