If you're one of the millions of fans that are hoping to see Sting back in the ring for WWE soon, you may need to exhale.

Reports have surfaced that WWE officials were not panicking when Seth Rollins went down with a torn ACL injury. Though they view him as an important piece of the product, losing Rollins is not on the same level as losing The Rock or Steve Austin to an injury. Plus, the front office already had made plans for Roman Reigns to take over the top spot at the Survivor Series anyways.

As a sign of how dedicated he is to his career, Seth Rollins has moved from Iowa to Alabama. He will be living there for the next two months so that he can be closer to the rehabilitation center and Dr James Andrew, the surgeon who repaired his torn ACL. WWE officials are quite pleased that Rollins is showing that much devotion to the cause. On a side note, this is what Triple H once did when he was in rehab.

While his knee surgery was a success, WWE is still expecting Seth Rollins to miss out on Wrestlemania. That means that they need to find a new opponent for Triple H to work with. The two of them were originally scheduled for a match, with Rollins doing a baby face turn at some point in time. Plans were in place for him to break away from the Authority after dropping the belt to Roman Reigns. The injury changed everything.

As soon as Seth Rollins went down with an ACL injury, the belief was that WWE would be contacting John Cena to see an early return would be possible. To their credit, management has not done that. Instead, they are opting to respect his wish for time off to focus on other projects and heal up from his various injuries in the ring. No exact time frame has been announced, but he should be back before the Royal Rumble.
