5 Seth Rollins WWE WrestleMania 40 Replacement Opponents Following CM Punk Injury

5 Seth Rollins WWE WrestleMania 40 Replacement Opponents Following CM Punk Injury WWE

A major shakeup is set to occur with the planned WrestleMania 40 match card, this time for real.

CM Punk reportedly suffered a torn triceps during his return match at the Royal Rumble, with him slated to miss around 4-6 months following surgery.

Punk’s injury, unlike Seth Rollins’, is set to keep him out of this year’s WrestleMania event, so now we must look for replacement opponents for Rollins at the show.

Luckily for WWE, there are several names who could be subbed in as replacements for Punk on the night.

GUNTHER

Last week, Seth Rollins was the half of this match that was expected to miss WrestleMania, but even with him currently injured, he’s still expected to make the show.

On last week’s show, when Rollins was to address his status, he was interrupted by Intercontinental Champion Gunther, who seemingly set up a tease for a future match.

That match may now have to be moved forward to WrestleMania, and was likely the plan prior to Punk’s WWE return at Survivor Series.

The issue is that Gunther is unable to travel outside of the US for a few more months, so he’d have to win a tournament on television rather than an Elimination Chamber.
