Rollins continued to hobble around afterword and somehow was able to finish the match, defeating Kane after powerbombing him through a table.

It quickly became clear that the injury was serious when he needed help returning to the locker room. The WWE is planning to hold a tournament at Survivor Series to crown a new champion during Rollins’ lengthy absence.
