What does the Seth Rollins injury mean for the WWE Title?

Updated on November 6, 2015

So I had previously thought to do a blog about the booking of Sasha Banks since coming to the main roster, but after the big news that came out about Seth Rollins tearing his ACL, MCL and his medial meniscus, I think this is the only thing that needs to be talked about right now, and sadly, just like WWE booking, Sasha Banks is going to have to be set on the back burner in this as well.

So, as we all know, Seth Rollins badly injured his knee at a live event and will be out anywhere from 6 to 9 months, not only is it devastating to his body, which I think everyone would wish for his speedy recover, but professionally, it is also a devastating blow because he now has to vacate the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, it slows his momentum, and unfortunately it takes him out of WrestleMania in Dallas, Texas. Which leads to the reason for this post... What happens with the WWE World Heavyweight Championship now? WWE has announced a tournament to crown a new champion which will take place at Survivor Series, how this tournament will go down is anybodies guess, the brackets should be released hopefully as early as this Monday night on Raw, but if I was booking, this is how I would do it...

If you want to put the title on a face, Dean Ambrose is the guy that would be the most logical, he's super over with the fans, puts on a hell of a match and can work the microphone like nobodies business, and close runner up, you go with a dark horse in the tournament and put it on Cesaro, like Ambrose, he's super over and can put on a hell of a match, his mic skills I think are definitely good enough to carry a title reign, they're not on the level of an Ambrose, but he's still perfectly capable of being a great champion.

If you want to go the heel route, I would say 100% Kevin Owens. He's the Intercontinental Champion right now, and he can always drop it if they don't want to go with the double champion thing again, but Kevin Owens is in my opinion far and away the best heel on that roster right now. A very good runner up, again this is a dark horse, Bray Wyatt. Bray Wyatt is on fire right now with the whole abduction of Kane and The Undertaker, they could build on this, have him use his new "powers" to help him become the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion, he's got the talent in the ring, and on the microphone, he's on par with any great talker around right now.

As for what I think happens, it comes down to two words... Roman Reigns. I'm sure you could figure out from my last post, I'm not a fan. At least not yet, I think he still needs time to develop himself better and maybe in the future he can be a great champion and a great face of the company.

BUT... If, what if the WWE is forced to do something they didn't want to do? If anyone is helped by the Rollins injury, the Orton injury and John Cena taking time off, it is the man who has been out of action for quite a while now, a man who has been cleared by every doctor he's seen EXCEPT the WWE doctor, what if the WWE finally had no choice but to clear...

Daniel Bryan?

Daniel Bryan doesn't have the greatest mic skills, but they're passable to be champion, he connects with the crowd like nobody else and is so ridiculously over that the fans damn near went into a riot in order to get him his WrestleMania moment when he not only beat Triple H, but then went and beat Batista and Randy Orton in the main event to become WWE World Heavyweight Champion. Do I think this will happen? No, but if the WWE is looking for people to fill the void of the injuries and the time off, Daniel Bryan is definitely the guy to look at in terms of the fans wanting to see.

As always, let me know what you think about all this, thanks for reading.
