The idea that The Rock and Seth Rollins are equal in value is insane.
And yet they are, at least when it comes to pulling WWE out of the hole it's in. Because WWE is the big umbrella over everyone that gets involved with them, and WWE stops anything from working.
You're right, the idea IS insane. And that's the world we live in right now. Insane.
WWE's issues aren't solved by suggesting that the person with the big belt is the wrong guy. The issues are solved by working on the underlying problems that are company wide. Work on those and the problems will sort themselves out.
For example, and this isn't to single him out, but lets take a look at Ricochet.
Why should I be impressed by him? He can do a bunch of crazy acrobatic stuff? Like 99% of WWE's current roster? Where's the character? Where's the storytelling? Where's the narrative?
That goes for Rollins. That goes for Aleister Black. That goes for Kofi Kingston. That goes for The Usos. That goes for everyone on screen, or nearly. And for those who aren't flying around everywhere, what are they doing? Where's their character, their narrative, their storytelling?
The Rock could come back and he'd be under the same garbage that these guys are in. Another example, Brock Lesnar. He should be above all these guys in value like The Rock would be and yet he does jack shit for saving the company. If he was on every week, that wouldn't change. Taker? HHH? Same boat.
Everyone is shit while connected to WWE because WWE in itself is shit.
I get blaming Rollins for being a company dude who's kissing ass because he's at the top, but lets not act like replacing him with another talent is gonna do anything.
