Seith Rollins won't be able to defend his WWE heavyweight title at the Survivor Series after suffering tears in his right ACL and MCL.

WORLD Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) world heavyweight champion Seth Rollins suffered tears in his right ACL, MCL, and medial meniscus that will sideline him for six to nine months.

The WWE confirmed in its website an ESPN report by Jonathan Coachman on Twitter that Rollins’ injury is legitimate and not part of the story line when he got hurt during an event in Dublin, Ireland.

Coachman also reported the WWE will hold a tournament at Survivor Series to determine the new heavyweight champion.

Rollins was supposed to defend his world title against Roman Reigns at Survivor Series.
