WATCH: Top rope breaks during match – and Seth Rollins improvises!


Seth Rollins and Dolph Ziggler were forced to improvise when the top rope broke at a WWE live event

The show must almost always go on in WWE – even when the top rope on the ring snaps.

The steel steps by the ring are regularly shoved out of position, usually by the body of whichever unfortunate superstar has just been thrown into them.

And the announcers’ desks are often reduced to woodchip when a poor soul finds him or herself thrown through one on regular occasions.

Both of those things, however, can be worked around. Michael Cole can hold his notes, he doesn’t absolutely need a desk upon which to set them down.
