A couple of years back, Seth Rollins missed out on Wrestlemania 32, in what was one of the most heart breaking moments of his professional career.
This year, it is his Shield partner, Dean Ambrose, who will miss the mega event, as he is ruled out due to a shoulder injury.

“The biggest thing is to try and roll with it and don’t turn away from your feelings,” said Rollins. “It’s going to be ok to feel sad, angry and frustrated, but try not to let yourself be negative. Turn it into a positive and use that as motivation to get back faster.”
“Neither of us, myself and Dean, had ever suffered any major injuries,” Rollins said. “For me, in the months I was recovering, it was a good experience to step back away from being a pro wrestler and be myself and live my life and experience some things I never had the time for.

“If you’re going to get hurt, the period around Wrestlemania is the worst time. Ambrose is the man. He’ll be back. It’s not about Wrestlemania this year, it’s about Wrestlemania next year and the year after that. It’s about the long term.”
“I think I’m just more aware of the little things with my body than I was before,” said Rollins. “I felt so invincible. I took for granted the little nagging injuries and didn’t treat them the way I should have.

” Not that I could have prevented the major injury. It was a freak accident. It’s not like my body wasn’t prepared. It didn’t just give out on me. I think for me my physical awareness has gotten better and I’m better at keeping up with the little injuries.”
