Seth Rollins looks at Dean's injury as a positive.
At the close of 2017, former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Dean Ambrose unfortunately suffered a torn bicep which has kept him out of the ring up to this point. Ambrose has been out action since December and reports have recently surfaced that Dean will be returning to WWE programming sometime within this or the next month.
Prior to Ambrose suffering the sidelining injury, he and Seth Rollins were months into their Shield reunion and battling Sheamus and Cesaro to get back the RAW Tag Team Championships. Since Ambrose's injury Seth Rollins has went on to win the WWE Intercontinental Championship and has put together a series of matches that have put Rollins in the running in the eyes of the fans and his peers as one of the best in-ring performers in the world. Seth even stated during an interview with the South China Morning Post that no one on WWE's main roster besides AJ Styles has been on his level this year. During that same interview, Seth also stated that he looks at Dean Ambrose's injury as a blessing in disguise because it allowed Seth to find himself as a singles performer once again.
“Being part of the Shield is a special thing,” Rollins said. “Any time the three of us are healthy and in the same place we can get into some trouble. Not that I would wish injury on Ambrose at all, but that was something that lit a fire underneath me. It’s definitely been a blessing in disguise for my singles career. It was like ok, I’ve got to kind of refocus, reset my priorities and move forward,” Rollins added. “I was presented with some cool opportunities early in the year.”
"The Architect" will look to continue adding on to his hot 2018 when he walks into the Barclays Center on August 19th at SummerSlam in hopes of becoming a two-time WWE Intercontinental Champion.
