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

His selling has always been questionable. I thought when he no-sold his 'injury' against HHH at WrestleMania was bad enough but last night was worse, it was atrocious. There are no excuses for it. You take a look at Daniel Bryan's selling against Lesnar last year. When Lesnar was hitting the suplexes on him, Bryan sold it to perfection that it worried you because you really thought he was concussed. Even Lesnar sells well. How many times do we see Lesnar put in a submission hold and Lesnar looks like he is about to tap out or after he beat AJ Styles, he was struggling to walk after the match. His selling was sooo good that people started rumours that Lesnar was injured for real but Lesnar respected Styles enough to make it look like he just got out of a war against him and AJ's offense was that good. With Seth, nothing about his selling makes you believe he is hurt or that the opponent's offense is effective. Running around, doing high flying moves, hitting frog splashes and then celebrating after the match like he just won a normal TV match. It's all no-selling the good work Lesnar did. It's not just his selling, it's his acting and facial expressions. You take a look at his match against Ambrose last year. This was build up to be this personal grudge match where Seth wanted to hurt Ambrose but when the bell rings, the match is nothing and was rightfully thrashed on by the crowd. Seth will wrestle a big PPV match the same way he wrestles a TV match because the guy's storytelling in the ring is poor.

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

The way you guys put it I was expecting horrible selling. After watching the match, he sells fine.

The frog splash was fine. He took a while to get up to the turnbuckle, and after he hit it, Brock beat him to the ring. He literally crawled to the steps/apron.

Could he have sold better on a few things? Sure. He could've done a hell of a lot worse, though. The only 'issue' I had were the 3 suicide dives, but that's also because suicide dives are stupid imo.

To be fair, when Seth was selling his injury against hhh at wrestlemania 33 majority of the people complain it was too slow and boring.(I enjoyed the story telling) so it's damn if you do, damn if you dont

He literally does the same shit Kenny Omega does. It's so obnoxious and takes me out of the match every single time.

HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA.

Awesome post, haven't laughed like that in a long time.

Austin man, he's something else.

Hey, Brock after hitting the F5 he had to take a breather. The guy with THE FREAKING BROKEN RIBS didn't need any breathers jumping around.

Please. Omega is a far superior performer in every aspect of being a professional wrestler than Rollins. He sells very well and registers that the damage that he takes from his opponents.

I don't quite remember Omega having "broken ribs" and doing outside the ring drives/planchas, off the top rope moves in and out of the ring, doing a superplex into a falcon arrow, or supposedly having "bad knees/quads" and doing flips and pedigrees as if nothing happened.

Watch Omega's matches sometime; especially his NJPW run, he's probably the best wrestler we have today if not at least top 3.

Holy shit this place has just become so negative and toxic. Complaining about that match is just ridiculous. If that didn’t entertain you just give up. Maybe this isn’t the right show for you.

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

Are you guys just realizing this? I've been saying this since he came back from that blown Knee. All these years people slobbering over Rollins and all I could do is roll my eyes. Watching his "suicide dives" all these years makes me laugh at how bad he is.

But I'm sure there will be people saying "well now it's the cool thing to hate Rollins blah blah". Nah I've disliked this mofo for years. You just need to watch his wrestling and promos to be convinced on how bad he is.

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

Honestly, I don't want to see any Rollins fans calling Ospreay, Ricochet, the Young Bucks or people like that "spot monkey who doesn't have psichology" or "bad wrestlers" after last night, I honestly couldn't believe what I was seeing, the guy barely sold shit, the guy who was coughing blood 2 weeks ago, who was basically dead at the end of the go home RAW, come on. AJ, Cena, Bryan, Taker, Reigns, all at 100% couldn't beat Lesnar clean and this geek beat him with "bad ribs", get the fuck out of here . And he dares to say on interviews that he doesn't want intergender matches because "those are not believable and WWE tries to believable" or some shit like that, give me a fucking break.
