Rollins comes out to a crowd happy to see him. Rollins says that he’s back, in case you hadn’t noticed. He’s had a hell of a week, but he thought of finishing this amazing week by coming to SmackDown. Rollins says that the crowd at Raw was kind of salty, but he wanted to know if the Norfolk crowd missed him? Well, Rollins wished he could say the same thing to them and drops the mic and walks to the back.

WWE sent out a tweet Monday night to the fans announcing the next WWE24 special will feature none other than our very own Seth Rollins in a special following his recovery during his six month hiatus following his knee injury. The special is aptly titled “Redesign. Rebuild. Reclaim” which will air following Monday Night RAW on May 30th on the WWE Network!
Will you be tuning in?
Seth was a guest on ESPN SportsCenter’s “Off The Top Rope” hosted by Jonathan Coachman on May 23rd where he spoke briefly on his knee injury, what it took to get back in only six months, missing WrestleMania and the WWE landscape. In case you missed it, check out video and captures below!
Seth Rollins makes his way to the ring.
Seth appreciates the reaction to his return to Raw.
He wants to know if the people of Baltimore are going to let him talk. He says it has been 200 days since he left. He has been thinking about stepping inside his ring once again. Seth says unless you are living under a rock, he is back. For seven months, he has waited to come back to win back the title he never lost. At Extreme Rules, he fired the first shot.
We see a photo of the Pedigree by Rollins to Roman Reigns after Roman defeated AJ Styles.
Seth says he feels like the people missed him. Seth says it was not always that way. When he put a steel chair in Roman’s back to end the Shield, you booed him every time. You were calling for his head every night. When he won the WWE Championship, he says you called him the weakest WWE Champion of all time. You were begging for people to beat him for the title, bu t no one could. You said he hid behind the Authority. You went against everything he earned during his title reign.
Then his knee buckled under the weight of carrying this company on his back for so freaking long. Then he started getting tweets and comments from people saying they missed him and wanted him to come back soon. He got flowers and so much fan mail, he did not know what to do with it. Seth says he did not open a single letter and he put it in a garbage can and he lit it on fire. Seth said he did not need you on his side to win the title or to defend the title. He says he does not need them to get it back.
Seth says there is only room on the Seth Rollins bandwagon for one dude and that is him. You weren’t there with him when he was rehabbing twice a day to get his title back. He says that is more work he has done in the last seven months than you have in your collective lives. Boo him or cheer him. He is back for one thing . . . the title he never lost. He redesigned Seth Rollins and he will take back HIS WWE World Championship.
