Rollins has the sort of look that some fans get behind. He also has the advantage of being a strongly booked face (arguably the most strongly booked face in FCW/NXT going back for a year plus), which helps with someone's overness. Look at Ryback, for example. People chant with him all the time, and he doesn't even cut promos.
Don't get me wrong. I don't actually dislike Rollins. I just don't think he's "all that" like some people do. His ring work can be quite good, so he has that going for him. He works well with McGillicutty in the ring, which I find more important than promo skills anyway.
