I was talking about his second TNA run, when he had the X-Division title for 6 months and spent entire matches doing nothing but kicking his opponent. He wasn't a special attraction, he was a regular feature.

Still a special attraction. Sin Cara is booked as a special attraction and he's a regular feature.

He might believe that he's doing just fine and not bother, at which point he'll be a catastrophic failure.
You don't know what you are talking about. I've been going to the last few NXT tapings and Rollins is a crowd favorite. The crowd always seem to go insane for him. He has the Jeff Hardy effect.

That's not the Hardy, effect. That's the Morrison effect. Hardy at least did extreme spots, and put on some face paint to make himself different. Rollins is just there.

I say Jeff because I think he was way more over than Morrison

I never questioned the man's popularity. I questioned his in-ring skills. There's a gulf of a difference there. I'm well aware that the guy is popular (by FCW up and comer standards). That doesn't make him a good wrestler. Jeff Hardy got popular years before he could wrestle either, so I'm not going to argue with your comparison.

yes but you said he would be a failure. He'll do just fine the way he is. He's very exciting to watch live

Except less talented, charismatic and good looking. Who knew it was possible to be a poor man's John Morrison?

I meant failure as an in-ring performer. I'm well aware that having no ring skills whatsoever isn't likely to hold someone back if the WWE wants to push him, and Rollins isn't THAT irredeemably bad in the ring. That being said, part of Seth's current appeal is that most of the fans already know him down there. Pretty much anyone who gets pushed as a face who wins all the time is going to have some fans. It's not like he's going to show up on Smackdown one day and automatically get a pop.
