Soon-to-be former world heavyweight champion Seth Rollins is currently recovering from an accident during his match on November 5th in Dublin, Ireland on the WWE European tour.  You can see the clip of his nasty knee-blowout here:

 

During the past couple days since the injury, The Architect has had some time to relax, rehab, and think about how he is going to regain his title belt. In an exclusive WWE interview,  he gave details on his plans:

"Physically, my knee doesn’t hurt. Like, one thing people don’t understand, a common question is, “How much pain are you in?” The ligaments don’t have nerve endings, so, that’s a good thing and a bad thing, but I don’t feel any pain, it’s just a lot of instability in the knee capsule. So, I’m doing a lot of compression to kind of reduce the swelling and stuff like that. Emotionally … could be better. Obviously it’s a tough spot to be in. I’m mostly just looking forward to getting the surgery done and getting better every day."

Rollins still feels that he although he was forced to give up his title due to his injury, he never lost it after all. "They can look at it however they want, but for me, I’m the best and I’ve never lost my title. "

Lastly, he thanked his haters not just for motivation of their despise for him, but for being truly supportive during his recovery process. 

"Their support means a lot to me and it’s going to go a long way in my recovery and help me mentally get back to where I was at. So yeah, it’s very interesting to see how quickly people’s minds can change when it comes to something like that — it says a lot about the human condition."

Another great example of the thin line between love and hate. You can read the entire interview here.
