Re: Is it time to admit that Rollins sucks in the ring?

You can't have Rollins sell like he did for two-three Raws in a row then at the PPV he sells those injuries he was selling for weeks for a few minutes then BAM he doesn't anymore for the rest of the match. If he's going to draw power from the millions of Hulkamaniacs all over the world or whatever and no sell his previously taken damage then it needs to happen at the very end and just long enough for him to win. Not for 3/4 of the match

There has been an AEWakening... have you felt it?

The mark wars have begun again

DAMN THAT TRACK IS HOT

THAT'S GOTTA BE KANE (IS BACK) (AGAIN)

RIP Robin

Re: Is it time to admit that Rollins sucks in the ring?

It baffles me really. Like the only thing this guy can do is ringwork, thats the only string to his bow; workrate. He sure as hell cant cut a promo, or work a character. He has no charisma or personality. But his ringwork is pretty well respected, yet he no sells everything. And not in a Brock/Hogan way, in a he's too stupid and all he can do is dumb spots way. Rollins is the sort of guy who will never let ring psychology or selling get in the way of trying to make the fans go "ooooohhhhhh".

For a guy who is meant to be this amazing in ring talent, for a guy who literally all he brings to the table is workrate, his workrate sucks. There's no point doing all these moves and shit if you cant sell anything or display any kind of ring psychology. How this guy has got to the spot he's in astounds me, he's either sucking some dick backstage or he has pictures of someone sucking dick because even the McMahons aren't this dumb to try and pretend this no talent bum is FOTC material.

Very true, and we can't blame booking/creative for this one as Seth clearly has control over his matches, and he keeps doing that hit garbage over and over again.

Well wrestling fans got their wish, Lesnar's has been beat clean as a whistle by a clown who doesn't understand how to give a good promo or put out a semi-passable match in the ring. Let's see what kind of impact he has now that he's cemented as the top guy.

Re: Is it time to admit that Rollins sucks in the ring?

basically rollins can do moves.......thats it, he cant act, he cant talk, he cant sell.

like microsoft narrator in tights.

I know its cliche but in any other era, this guy would be nowhere near the top. Hes only getting a look in because wwe hasnt built anyone remarkable in well over a decade. Its like winning the world cup when all the decent players are not playing. You arnt really the best, you are just the best of the worst.

Re: Is it time to admit that Rollins sucks in the ring?

Seth is the biggest example of wrestler who can do moves but that is literally all he can do.

Dude has no idea on psychology or the concept of selling, he was literally murdered the last two weeks and tonight the idiot is going through tables like a stereotypical Indy mark.

Can't cut a promo, does not have charisma Rollins is midcard trash

Re: Is it time to admit that Rollins sucks in the ring?

Stone Cold: “Rollins is somewhat over, not all-the-way over, not by a long shot. Now, I don't mean that in a bad way. That's just being honest. He [has] relied on his sequences and his athleticism to carry him. To take him to the next level, he'll have to get more character development."

“When you say 'Seth Rollins' or if you want to say 'Seth Freakin' Rollins', I still don't have a sense of what or who this guy is. And so, that rests on Seth Rollins' shoulders, as an individual, as a performer, to define or create that as well as the WWE because I still don't get a sense of what kind of personality he is."

Re: Is it time to admit that Rollins sucks in the ring?

Seth Rollins (who got some boos at the beginning of the main-event in his opponent's home-country but still managed to win the crowd over by the end of the match after a thrilling babyface performance) having "no" charisma

Anyway, he's still a great wrestler who's average on the promo department.

I admit that I over rated him. I thought he was a lot better than he actually is.
