Seth Rollins has been withdrawn from all live events this weekend because WWE have sent him to China on a promotional tour for the company. Wrestler’s being pulled from house shows is becoming a regular thing, with Daniel Bryan erased from last weekend’s Smackdown Live shows.
WWE are scheduled to head to the country at the beginning of September, holding several live events on the shore before heading home for Hell in a Cell on the sixteenth of the month. John Cena confirmed that he will appear on the September 1 event in Shanghai.

Fans of the ‘Architect’ shouldn’t worry though, he’ll be back on American soil in time for Raw on Monday, whilst fans attending red events this weekend will get a break from his usual enmity with Dolph Ziggler over the WWE Intercontinental Championship.
As it stands, the ‘Showoff’ and the ‘Kingslayer’ will square off for the prestigious strap at SummerSlam on August 19. It is expected at least one more name will be added to the equation.
