The Complete WWE Injured List (11/6/15)


With today's devastating news that reigning WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins will be sidelined anywhere between six-to-nine months after basically blowing out his entire left knee, we got to realizing the gravity of injuries across the entire roster in 2015 alone.

That's an all-star selection of talent right there. All told, that's a combined 26 world championship reigns worth of wrestlers and a huge slew of secondary gold. You could legitimately assemble these competitors into a promotion that would automatically be the second-best one in the world based on top-to-bottom talent.
