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.
