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

Seth can actually sell, but the way the match was laid out was the issue. But some spots I just figured that they wanted the fans to know that "Even though Seth has bad ribs he'll do whatever it takes to get the title back". Thats how I took it anyway. Seth's a major upgrade over Brock, and Im not a big Seth fan. Hopefully now Brock is out of the title picture.

I don't really see what the point of having Brock take the title off Seth for a month was. Seth really isn't in any better position now than he was before that. If anything, he's starting to get noticeable heat from the crowd. Beating Brock again isn't going to just magically springboard him into being interesting or a draw. He needs to start turning heel now with the title, if he keeps going with this bland and awful character, he's dead in the water

Seth Rollins does suck, and I liked him in ROH as Tyler Black.


He wasn't booked correctly in the WWE. And his promo's haven't helped him.

One thing I like about Seth, is at least he is trying out there. Unlike most of the top guys in the WWE right now.

Bad seller ya but doesn't suck in the ring. But if you wanna tie those two together as a combo as a complete wrestler that's in your right

Seth Rollins as a babyface getting power from the Sethians or whatever, eh. But what if he said the blood from the first beatdown was fake blood, that the second beatdown wasn't shit to him since he'd been able to take punishment in 60 minute iron man matches, etc. He was playing possum with the over the top medical bandages, too. Then he broke out all these moves he'd never be able to do if he was hurt and that Brock wasn't mentally and physically prepared for, like suicide dives and frog splashes, and that was part of him being the Architect? There's just nothing ever done with him being intelligent or anything. I'd have liked it if he explained he had been conning Brock Lesnar into a false sense of security to spring his trap on Brock.

Or if you go for him truly being busted up, have him have to get stretchered out, cough up more blood, etc.

Instead, Seth pranced around in full no-sell-a-hardcore-match John Cena mode and the announcers said things like, "Why, I bet his back and ribs don't bother him at all now!"

It's insane to Compare his match with Brock to the Ibushi Jay match and see how much lacking he is in in ring psychology
Heck even compared to Finn Balor Styles and Bryan he doesn't seem to bother to make his matches seem believable

I don't know if it's his fault or Vince's

Always said he was average but most people here were praising him three years ago

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

Literally sends the entire crowd into a fucking frenzy after they were booing the shit out of him before the match
"God what a shit wrestler".

Lets be real honest here, if he worked the match in slow motion everyone complaining about him no-selling would've just called it boring instead. The guy can't win here.

I sure hope everyone complaining about super-man shit kept the same energy with Bryan at WM30, I somehow doubt it.

Smark 1 : "Whenever you're in an argument, just say some shit about TARPS AND RATINGS BRO."

Smark 2 : "But isn't that literally the most boring way to discuss an art form? With numbers that have had a consistent downward trend for over a decade regardless?"

Smark 1 : "It gives the illusion of trying to be objective, if though that's a bunch of complete horseshit. Just try it."

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

Hello as a long time fan . I don't think he sucks at all.

If you notice he was an Indies wrestler for a number of years so he towards if not at the top end of card for those shows.

He also traveled the world on the Indies circuit to England .

So he had the right education in terms of wrestling and then went to the WWE.

Also it depends on the booking of a wrestler .

Yours

Farhan
