I think he was definitely injured, but probably not to the extent that the WWE was making it out to be.
He was definitely injured. They were clearly going to do a match with him and Joe which didn't happen and Rollins' injury was right when the program with him and HHH was picking up major steam and you don't pull back on that momentum unless you don't have a choice.
Rollins' injury was supposed to have a 6-8 week timetable so the fact that he can do a couple moves and take a little bit of damage from a, probably, gimmicked crutch is a slightly faster than normal return. But for a guy with high level athleticism in his athletic prime its not out of the realm of possibility at all.
