In WWE? Seth Rollins hasn’t had the best time as
of late. Despite beating Brock Lesnar at both WrestleMania 35 and Summerslam – oooh Beast
Slayer. Twice – his Universal Championship runs at the top of WWE this year have been
mired by an awkward storyline pairing him up with his real life fiance Becky Lynch,
and a disastrous feud with Bray Wyatt’s Fiend that still WON’T GO AWAY.
And that’s just the stuff on WWE programming. In the last few months Seth has flipped between
tweeting how much money is in his bank account MONEY! to deleting his Twitter entirely. It’s
not been the most effective way to book a babyface, and, as a result, has even led to
some fans going too far: holding up signs saying ‘Seth Rollins Is Not Cool’.
Good gawd, almighty, they’ve killed him And Seth’s new PR-slayer gimmick took another
step this week, when he answered a Q&A question about one day facing Kenny Omega, by taking
a shot at AEW. “When Kenny’s done playing in the minor
leagues over there, Kenny can come and work at the absolute top professional wrestling
company in the world in front of the most people and make the most money and have the
best matches, which is with me at WrestleMania.” Them’s be fighting words, sure, but it’s
also the kind of bantery language you’d expect in a wrestling war. Especially with
Being the Elite jokingly calling NXT the ‘minor leagues’ in a recent episode. Former WWE
turned AEW commentator Jim Ross, however, has taken great offence to Seth’s comments,
saying he’s “pissed off” on the latest episode of his Grilling JR podcast, and then
shooting on Rollins himself: “He’s in a great spot, he’s blessed, maybe
someday he’ll be as over as his girlfriend, I don’t know. Nonetheless, I’ve always liked
his work. He’s a solid guy, he’s a solid guy, but saying things like that make him look
bad and for that, I feel badly for him. I just do.”
JR then interestingly went onto how Seth is being perceived backstage due to his behaviour
these last few months: “Since this came out, I talked to two Hall
of Fame guys off the record that were embarrassed about those remarks as well. It doesn’t do
the business any good and one of these cats even said to me that maybe Rollins is breaking
under the pressure because he’s getting a lot of criticism.”
Seth’s position as WWE’s top champion comes with considerable pressure to defend
the brand. He’s the face of the company. But he appears to be taking criticism of it
personally – like when he stared down the ‘Not Cool’ sign guy. Even his Shield brother
Roman Reigns has admitted Seth’s conduct hasn’t had the babyface connection it should,
telling Sports Illustrated: “Seth loves the WWE. That’s why some people
misread some of the things he says or the ways he delivers it, but he does mean well.
He’s a workhorse. Yeah, he’s a little live at the mouth sometimes, but he’s got a heart
of gold, trust me.” I feel you, Big Dawg. We here at WrestleTalk
are also trying to go babyface again. The most important thing, Seth, is that you don’t
crack under pressure. Let’s see how he’s doing on Instagram with his most recent post:
