This is the second week in a row where Rollins has been attacked by Lesnar, with the first attack last week being particularly brutal.
The former Universal Champion had his ribs taped up on last night’s show, and commentary put over how he may not be fit to compete in his championship rematch at the upcoming pay-per-view.
However, WWE has provided an update on Seth Rollins’ status ahead of the pay-per-view. They have confirmed that the former Shield member “has been medically cleared” to face “The Beast” on Sunday.
