Seth Rollins was a part of Team SmackDown during the 5-On-5 Survivor Series Elimination Match on Sunday. The Messiah's involvement in the match didn't last very long, though, as he sacrificed himself "for the greater good" and allowed Sheamus to Brogue Kick him.
News of Rollins' time off has been known for some time following a report from Ringside News. They noted the four-time world champion is likely to be off TV for four to six weeks.
Rollins recently wrapped up his long-running feud with the Mysterio family on the November 13 edition of Friday Night SmackDown. The rivalry lasted seven months and Rollins often picked up the victory but he finally received some comeuppance from Rey Mysterio in a No Holds Barred Match. He then lost to his former disciple Murphy on last week's SmackDown.
