Seth Rollins is not expected to be on WWE television for the next several weeks as he had requested time off to be with his fiancee Becky Lynch for the arrival of their baby.
Rollins lost to Rey Mysterio and Murphy on Smackdown over the past two weeks and was eliminated first during the Survivor Series after he sacrificed himself for a Brogue Kick from Sheamus.
Lynch is expected to give birth in the beginning of December but it is not known how Rollins will be out for. Apart from an injury in late 2015 which kept him out for six months, Rollins has been wrestling pretty much non-stop for the company and has not had any lengthy breaks.
A Royal Rumble return would be ideal but that might be too close, giving him just two months out. Early betting odds have Rollins at 14/1 to win the Rumble, not good odds for The Messiah!

Daniel Bryan, who was in a similar situation with the arrival of his second child, was out for five months.
