Last night on Smackdown, Seth Rollins faced Rey Mysterio in what WWE billed as the final chapter in their long running feud. In one form or another, the two have been opposed to each other since May.
The timing of this rivalry drawing to a close coincides with reports that Rollins will be stepping away from WWE for a period after the Survivor Series as his partner Becky Lynch is due to give birth to the couple’s first child in December.
It has been reportedly confirmed by sources that Rollins will take some form of paternity leave around the birth. This would be expected in normal times but with pregnant women and new born children being classed as vulnerable in terms of COVID-19 exposure, it makes all the sense in the world for Rollins to take some sort of break.
