Turn him heel and have him feud with Daniel Bryan (drafted to RAW) going into WM 36. They could probably get a Seth/Becky vs. Bryan/Brie match as well.

I still think they can salvage Seth's face run. He still gets some of the biggest reactions of the night.

However, its going to happen when the fans are just totally done and will resent Seth. Its happening now in the smirk circle. At that point, make him drop the title. Have him take a hiatus (champion's schedule is brutal), and return him when things calm down as a heel.

I remember seeing him wrestle 3 years ago at a live event. He was much more over than he is now.

I think the strange storylines (against Corbin as "The man`s man" and against Bray) didn`t work. Obvisouly they try to paint him as anti-hero in his storylines, but that doesn`t seem to get bought. I am not even sure, if just the storylines are bad or it is also the execution or the audience just don`t want to see it. :)

It doesn't matter. A heel turn will do nothing for him. He still can't promo, has no acting ability, and would be lost if he couldn't spam his face moves. His prior heel run is viewed through rose tinted glasses as people overrated it simply because he wasn't Roman, who was perceived to be the company darling. Ironically, seth is more overpushed than Roman ever was. Fact of the matter is he should never be a top heel or face. His lack of talent is better suited for the midcard. :Cocky
This.

It doesn't matter if he is a face or a heel, he's simply not main-event material. He should be demoted to the midcard.

I actually admire WWE for getting behind a performer and pushing them to the moon. That is how stars are usually made. The only problem is that they have picked the wrong performer to push. Even the best booking squad would not be able to solve Rollins' weaknesses and turn him into a drawing card.

He's so ridiculously unlikeable its hilarious. Comes off smarmy, arrogant, looks like a complete greaseball. Then we know the stories of how he treats fans outside the ring, his habit of sending dick pics to married women, dating a nazi (allegedly). Hes so overpushed its insane.

And it would be one thing if he had a cool character or attire, but no. Hes completely bland as bird shit. Just a guy. I will never, ever for the life of me, until they bury my ass in the ground, understand Vince and Hunters love affair with this guy, and no one has ever given me a solid explanation. Can one of his marks explain to me his appeal? I just do not underfuckingstand. Maybe since he likes nudes so much he has some of Steph he blackmails Hunter and Vince with. Fuck. I dont get it.

My working theory, for him AND Roman Reigns both, and the only thing that's ever made sense to me is, after Rock and Brock left, Vince got REALLY nervous about anybody else getting a huge push because they'd leave, so to counter this, Vince has given pushes to guys who have NO prospects. They cannot make it in Hollywood, they cannot make it in another wrestling promotion, they can only make it in WWE, under this system, and under his watchful eye. So therefore, Vince is willing to put them as the absolute top guys because they will never abandon him because they MUST remain loyal to him for their livelyhoods. The people who have the skills to pursue acting or other wrestling at a top level, we MUST minimize these people, so that when they leave, they have less of an impact on our business metrics falling, because we've hurt them so much that the drop off will be less severe, and they're less value to any potential competitors. This has been the cause of WWE's philosophy that the stars are not the stars, the brand is the star. He wants stars that the brand itself overshadows. This is where the genuine hatred of charisma comes from, there is where the genuine hatred of mic skills comes from, there is where the genuine hatred of characters comes from. He didn't ALWAYS hate these things, he used to actively seek them out. This is something he ACQUIRED, as an asset for himself. This is why everybody has to be a generic first name, last name, plain trunks, etc. We can no longer have Undertakers, and Rocks, and Triple H's, and CM Punks, and Edges, we must have generic first name, last name, unenthusiastic, boring milquetoast wrestlers with no options at the top.

This is genuinely the type of thing that Vince McMahon would believe in.

A heel turn is the only solution for him. Get him a manager and he can pose a credible upper midcard to occasional main event threat imo.

Seth is suffering from the same thing Roman, AJ, and even Charlotte are, the simple fact that WWE has no idea how to push faces, or at the very least how to push most of their favorites without ruining them. Styles survived even though his title reign was boring, Bliss is still over, and Roman is getting back on the fan's good side, but we don't know how long that'll last the minute he's being pushed in the main event again. Even when they began to like Becky they were slowly ruining her character to the point people assumed they were purposely trying to sabotage her.

please refer to roman reigns and how wwe reacted to him getting booed every week.......exactly, wwe doesn't care about logic. Crowd reactions mean nothing in 2019, wwe simply does whatever the fuck they like and then basically calls out the fans for not understanding stuff.

The days of wwe adapting their product based on reactions is long gone.

He's not done, he's just getting started. If people boo they boo, won't be the first time fans turn on a wrestler and won't be the last.

I have a better idea. How about they send him to NXT?

That way we can actually test whether he is a draw. If he's on the show, and NXT goes against AEW Dynamite, we can test whether he moves the needle at all.

Or they send him back to the Performance Center where he can learn how to cut a promo and proper in ring psychology.
