The Royal Rumble last weekend wasn't all about Ronda Rousey, Asuka and Shinsuke Nakamura. There were also four championship matches on the main card, one of which saw a title change. That came when The Bar defeated Seth Rollins and Jason Jordan to become four time Tag Team Champions. Pretty impressive considering they've only been a team for a little more than a year.
On Raw the following night Sheamus and Cesaro successfully defended their newly won title against Titus Worldwide. The men they beat the night before though were nowhere to be seen. Word arose later in the week that both men are currently working through injuries, Jordan having problems with his neck and Rollins suffering from a back problem.
While the rumors about Jason Jordan's neck appear to be true, The Architect has taken to Twitter this week to clarify that he himself is not injured. The tweet reads 'Guys, my back is fine. Has been fine', before labeling the reports as 'fake news'. Fans will be hoping that it's fake news anyway as Rollins is expected to fill one of three available spots in the men's Elimination Chamber later this month.
Unfortunately when it comes to Rollins and injuries, this is the time of year that he normally suffers from them. Two years ago he had to sit out of WrestleMania while he recovered from a knee injury and last year the same almost happened again. It was a race against the clock as to whether he would recover in time for a match with Triple H. Although he won that race he won't want to relive that stressful time in his career again this year.
Apparently the early plan for Rollins at WrestleMania is a singles match against Jason Jordan. No offence to the former American Alpha man, but that lacks the excitement that most fans would want from a Rollins match on The Grandest Stage of Them All. Even though The Architect isn't injured it appears that Jordan's neck problem is legitimate so perhaps those plans will change between now and April 8th.
