Also, his voice simply annoys me to no end, and I don't find his delivery any better.
I can't argue with any of that, but I feel like his promo style can get people behind him and sell feuds which is really all that is necessary for someone like that. Rollins is over as hell in the NXT Arena and the segment with McGillicutty ended with the fans chanting his name, which isn't something that would happen with a truly terrible mic worker especially after McGillicutty no-sold him earlier on.
I don't personally like Rollins' promos, but I'm not expecting him to be another Ambrose or Punk. As long as he can get himself over and sell matches and feuds, that's fine by me.
