Earlier today, a report surfaced about Seth Rollins’ curb stomp being banned again. The move had been banned before but it was eventually reinstated in 2017. A WWE source confirmed to us that the story is inaccurate and Rollins took to Twitter to shoot down the story.
😂😂 your source is incorrect bubba.

Rollins did attempt the move a couple of times during his match with Dolph Ziggler on Monday Night Raw but he missed and ended up getting the win after hitting the Falcon Arrow.
Bryan Alvarez noted on Wrestling Observer Live that the reason why the Falcon Arrow was used as Rollins’ finisher on Monday was that they just wanted to get that move over. It makes sense to do that as a way to make the move credible for near falls, especially during big pay-per-view matches.
“They’re trying to get over another finish for him,” Alvarez said. “He does the falcon arrow in every match. It never wins. People still go crazy for it. The fact that he won with it is gonna make it a hotter near fall from now on. He went for the Curb Stomp twice in that match and didn’t get it so it’s not like it’s gone.”
Rollins will be getting a big push heading into WrestleMania so it makes sense to get over some of his other moves. Click here for spoiler news on who Rollins is scheduled to face at WrestleMania.
