WWE found themselves in an unfavorable situation this week, as a Seth Rollins knee injury, causing him to vacate the WWE World Heavyweight Title. This marks the fifth consecutive year the WWE has been forced to vacate a world title.
Jim Ross posted his latest blog at JRsBarBQ.com, where he speaks out about Rollins' injury, and the situation WWE is now in.
Ross said that he's hopeful that the unfortunate injury is used to turn lemons into lemonade for the WWE, as they have several talents ready to step up and accept the challenge of having a more prominent role on WWE TV.
"WWE Champion Seth Rollins is going to be out of action likely around 9 months after blowing out his knee including his ACL. Rollins will be stripped of the title as I understand it and a tournament will be held to crown a new, WWE World Champion which should be positioned as a HUGE deal within the WWE. When a bad break occurs within the pro wrestling business it always opens the door for, at times, the most unlikely individual to step up and assume the mantle of the company. How the creative minds address this issue is going to be pivotal including who actually are entered into the tournament which I assume will be a single elimination format whereby the winners advance and the losers take a seat much akin to the NFL playoffs or March Madness in the NCAA hoops tourney. That puts a sense of urgency on every match which should , by all rights, create some excellent TV," Ross said.
Ross said that while the situation isn't ideal, it's often worked out in the favor of WWE in the past.
"I've seen these calamities work out well in the past if the creative forces are willing to blow up the status quo and think outside the box to put even more clout on the WWE Title and to put talents in a position to become more relevant and hopefully, make some new stars and create some new rivalries via this process," said Ross.
