Agreed. Watching them on NXT a couple of days ago, I loved the way JR and Regal put them over. They put The Shield over as threats while still remaining face by not agreeing w/ The Shield's motives. JBL does the same thing in a slightly more heelish manner. Even Matthews is improving in that regard. But I just hate Cold and King together. Cole isn't a bad announcer, at time I think's a really good one, but there are so many times I shake my head watching him. There will be a match going and in the most exciting moment of the match, he will say some dumb joke. Same thing w/ King, only that's the only thing he does now.

I loved both Jeff and John in the WWE. Jeff is probably more athletic than Seth but since Seth is stepping up his game, he's becoming more and more of a total package.
Though Seth is nowhere near Dean Ambrose when it comes to potential and star power.
I've always said that Rollins has that Jeff Hardy-like appeal. Meaning that although he isn't the best mic worker or character, people just love to cheer him. They both have that charisma that shines w/o using the mic.
But...what star power are you talking about? Both Seth and Ambrose just debuted 2 months ago. You can call them rising stars. But I don't think any member of the Shield has more star power than the other, at least in the eyes of the casual fans.
My opinion, I think Rollins will be a bigger star than Ambrose. As previously stated, people compare Rollins to Hardy. No matter what you think about Hardy, he was at one time the biggest star and draw in the business. Rollins, whether you love him or hate him, in my eyes just has more appeal to a casual fan than Ambrose. I think more people would rather buy a Rollins T-shirt than an Ambrose T-Shirt.
