That opening promo was very heel-like, and though he could be transitioning or more likely WWE just sucks at writing, but it came off as if he turned.
For those that aren't watching, here's a small TLDR:
He targeted Orton and Flair, blaming them for the losses at SS. Okay, they're heels. He then proceeds to blame AOP for not even showing up. Okay. Next, he goes after Rey and his 'stupid kid' for not beating Brock when he 'beat him twice!', okay very heel like. He also out of nowhere blamed Owens and accused him of wanting his spot. All the while never blaming himself and deflecting.
If this is the Seth we're getting from now on and WWE is actually allowing him to turn heel and take advantage of his idiotic actions and comments online, then I'm all for it.
It's Seth Rollins. He'll still be hated. One heel turn probably won't change that.
With that being said, I'm glad that he's a heel now. It was the right move considering how Rollins has been receiving boos from the crowds lately.
I also think Rollins did a good job with his promo tonight in that opening segment. I thought hearing him roast his fellow Raw allies was probably the most entertained I've been by him on the mic in a long time :lol
Not for me, just never bought into Rollins heel or face. But definitely you see a lot on here kissing his ass again. Just how wrestling fan's are, a heel turn get's you over no matter if it makes sense. This whole forum would want everyone heel lol
Roman moves back to 1 uncontested, Becky and KO the b and c smark favorite faces.
Don't think KO will do well in terms of business, yeah he's over with smarks but I can't see him doing well with the kids demo which is key for someone in that role. Those numbers are going to get brutal for someone who they've torn down for years and portrayed as a main event gate keeper/fringe top star.
He turned? Oh shit. KO as top babyface May mean we get KO vs Lesnar at Mania. Not that I’m excited for that. Should be Black vs Lesnar. They’re gonna retcon the fact that KO has been a geek. As long as the people keep cheering for him then WWE doesn’t give a shit about how they booked him in the past. All they have to do is have him Stunner Rollins and he’s back on top in WWE logic. It has to be KO/Lesnar because there’s no one else.
People gonna start licking his balls again by the time Royal Rumble rolls around. Then WWE will proceed to book him like a chickenshit like they do all their heels. Then the IWC will turn on him again. Stupid and predictable lot both Vince and the IWC are.
