Rollins has been involved in far more sports entertainment stuff since leaving shield ie joining authority, trying to murder Cena, Ambrose and edge. Having two midget minders, having a statue of himself made which sting destroyed, having Jon Stewart help him beat Cena, invade nxt to challenge HHH, Ambrose turning in him, feuding with Corbin and Lacey Evans, tagging with Becky, boom box brock who beat him up weekly, tag team with Strowman where they didn't get along and last month being attacked by fiend and that 'match' at HIAC which was complete sports entertainment, really bad WCW 2000, TNA type sports entertainment.

When was the last time Rollins was booked to be a great in-ring wrestler? Probably the Gauntlet match back in February 2018.
Rollins is their main babyface nowadays, in case winning the Rumble, defeating Lesnar TWICE, and holding the championship almost every month of the year didn't paint it out for you.

I said his personality was that of someone who was a phenomenal wrestler who wanted to succeed and nothing more. It's the closest thing that he has to a personality, and booking someone like that in a bunch of "sports entertainment" skits doesn't suddenly make them interesting or charismatic. You could book Adam Cole or Johnny Gargano in the same spot and it wouldn't feel any different.

What is that supposed to even mean? "Too pro wrestling"? That's so vague.

This is funny as shit... Vince is 100% correct here, WWE is TOO pro wrestling, but that's just it ... he's the fucking owner, do something. Your show has been 100% wrestling and 0% story/character depth for years now.

Bayley (Favourite)/ Sasha Banks / Charlotte / Becky Lynch Asuka Carmella

Re: Vince McMahon Reportedly Thinks Some WWE Stars Are ‘Too Pro Wrestling’

If he thinks like that, then why does he push people who are only good at wrestling and suck at everything else? He should push people who are charismatic and entertaining instead. Also stop hiring more people like this, almost the entire roster is a bunch of people with zero charisma and only good at wrestling.

This is one thing i agree with Vince on.. you need characters, not "workhorses"... But the problem is unlike the past, everyone now is either a yes man with excellent work rate which matters not so much as we are seeing or just outright sucks unlike in the past where you had people who can sell themselves pretty well and can say No to vince on bad ideas..And Triple H/Vince in the name of NXT has hired so many of them ..well what do you do with the lot of them then? This is probably as good as they get except for maybe a couple of them at best.. Sure they can wrestle better but do you think that would fetch better ratings? Plus can they do it every day considering wwe's insane schedule?

So push wrestlers like Miz or Joe instead of Ricochet or Cedric.
