As previously noted, WWE world heavyweight champion Seth Rollins vs. CM Punk “is the confirmed Wrestlemania plan” although there has been doubt about Rollins’ status for the show as he reportedly suffered a torn MCL and partially torn meniscus.
The January 22nd 2024 edition of RAW opened with Rollins addressing his injury. Rollins said that with surgery, he would miss three to four months but before he could finish his statement, Gunther came to the ring. Rollins said that he doesn’t give a damn what doctors tell him, he will keep his promise and take the world title to Wrestlemania. Rollins vowed to leave Wrestlemania as champion.
Gunther responded by saying he was going to win the Royal Rumble and then challenge Rollins for the title at Wrestlemania. Rollins and Gunther ended up shaking hands.
