WWE’s Seth Rollins (real name, Colby Lopez) will return to in-ring action this Friday, January 1st, 2021. On this past week’s Christmas edition of SmackDown on FOX, WWE announced that Rollins would be returning to the show’s first episode of 2021 since his last appearance at Survivor Series in November 2020.
Fans will recall that Rollins took paternity leave following his Survivor Series appearance in which he was eliminated first by Sheamus. On December 7th, 2020, Rollins and fiancée, Becky Lynch (Rebecca Quin), welcomed their first child together, a daughter named Roux, on December 7th, 2020.
When Seth Rollins began his paternity leave, he was feuding with Murphy and the Mysterio family at the time. Stay tuned for this week’s Friday Night SmackDown to see the return of Seth Rollins.
