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.

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.

I certainly don't think he is "all that" as you put it, but I do think he is the ideal person to build NXT around. Fans do love to get behind this man, and I think he has way more upside than a Jeff Hardy as well. Rollins is an all around solid worker. His mic skills aren't great, but over time I think that is something that will improve. He has the charisma that others like Shelton, or Morrison just lacked. There is a presence with Seth. He has the passion for the business, and you can see it in practically all of his work.

He will certainly be a breath of fresh air once he debuts on the main roster, and I wouldn't be surprised to see him after WM. They will need to figure out who to build the show around, and my guess would be Richie Steamboat, it's his time to lead NXT, and I would even throw Bo Dallas down the line as a possible "face" of the NXT show after Steamboat. Rollins has done well as a champion, and I actually enjoy his matches. NXT in general has been very nostalgic in some ways.

Just got a chance to watch this week's NXT. Can we talk about how Richie Steamboat desperately needs a clearly defined character? I really enjoyed his match with Drew McIntyre, and the feud with Kassius Ohno is a step in the right direction - my attention is definitely piqued. But I have a very clear idea of the kind of man KO is playing and no idea about who Little Ricky is, besides being a "I want my dad to be proud of me" guy like the rare appearances of Face!Cody.

Also, Aiden English is an excellent WCW-style jobber - in the proud tradition of guys like Disco Inferno and Norman Smiley. He really knows how to perform being a hapless victim of whichever monster he's sacrificed to each week. He can stay.

Also, why do I want to call Seth Rollins "Punk, Jr."?

NXT was the better show between all the WWE shows this week. I'm going to guess this is the norm.

Since the start of the year pretty much. FCW in March/April was a sight to behold with all the current stars plus Sandow, Cesaro, Ambrose & Wyatt appearing regularly.

He reminds me a lot more of someone like Jeff Hardy.
