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

After the match with Brock at Summerslam is it time to admit that Rollins sucks in the ring? How can you be considered good in the ring when you are not able to sell an injury? Near the end of the match when Rollins did 3 suicide dives in a row despite having broken ribbs was so ridiculous. People used to give so much shit to someone like Jeff Hardy calling him a spot monkey and bad in the ring and everything yet Rollins does the exact same thing and maybe he's even worse. Atleast Jeff Hardy was good at selling. I guess psychology doesn't matter in this era and its not required to be "good in the ring".

The guy went top rope and frog splashed through a table with 'broken ribs'. It's not time to admit anything. The dude has always had no ring psychology and besides his voice has always been one of his biggest weaknesses. Look at the stupid ass falcon arrow spot he does all the time.

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

Not being able to sell and booking the match in a way where selling doesn't occur are 2 different things

My guess is Seth Rollins is capable of selling but why they booked the match that way (or Seth decided to work it that way or whatever) really made it look bad. I mean in a vacuum the match itself was a very good match. But when you take into account that the story going in was Seth's injuries, the way it was structured and booked, from the standpoint of Seth's part, made it look very stupid. I get you need to suspend disbelief, and from what I've seen on here I am one on this site that can do that the most, but there is a limit to that, even for people who are able to do it well.

You answered your own question, psychology doesn't matter anymore.

Its probably both Seth's and WWE's fault. The very least WWE could've done is to book a healthy Seth beat Brock instead of an injured one. Maybe the match would've been decent this way and the things Seth did would've been more believable

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

I don’t know if it’s all on Seth but whoever is producing these over booked, nonsensical, no ring psychology matches needs to be fired.

You had an absolutely ridiculous Adam Cole vs Johnny Gargano match at takeover. Now you have super Seth vs Brock. This Superman booking shit is ruining the business. It’s like watching a video game. They might as well just put an animated life meter over their heads.

Patiently waiting for the Attitude Era to return

Words can't describe how much I fucking hate that video game offense spot.

In a way it bothers me he can sell an injury one time then next he doesn't, I'm starting to think I'm making excuses for him but it's like he has short attention span at times.
