Seth Rollins with a legend killer gimmick?

Just watched the trailer for WWE2K18 when this thought popped into my head. I mean, looks so cool destroying and vandalizing all those WWE memorabilia and basically giving the finger to every WWE legend in the past. Rollins character is currently stale and he badly needs a character rehash so why not this? Of course have his interpretation be different than Orton's. And we've got whole host of talent about to hit 40 or are already over that age, so theres plenty of 'legends' for him to kill. I'm thinking have him be more of a tweener in contrast to Orton's heel version one where he does it to prove that he is better than the past generation and not necessarily to retire them but have him be obsessed woth it almost like a heel. Lastly, he needs be more of an outcast instead of this generic athelte he is now. Maybe wear street clothes more and act almost like a one man shield with ambushes.

Thoughts?

Legend killer gimmick has been done.

I am baffled why they are portraying Rollins as an asshole in the game vignette and a goody too shoes on raw.

Let him be a heel or at least a crazy unhinged face not a spineless corporate baby. This is the man that attempted to murder Ambrose and edge live on air ffs not that long ago.

because the trailer wouldve been created by 2k, Im sure wwe signed it off but I wouldnt be surprised if they dont really care how someone is portrayed in the trailer, as long as its not offensive etc, it would likely be a simple case of "oh seth will look cool"

job done.

Are we reusing/copying old gimmicks now because WWE can't think of decent new gimmicks?

There is only one Legend Killer.

He should have debuted 5 years ago with this vignette. The Shield were awful and him turning was even worse. The Legend Killer gimmick is unfortunately already taken by a stale piece of bread they call Randy Orton.

I just can't buy into the idea of anyone other than Randy Orton as the Legend Killer. It was his gimmick, and he did a great job with it. The feuds he had with Mick Foley, Hulk Hogan, and Undertaker were epic. It can't be replicated by Rollins if you ask me.

Orton wasn't even that much of a legend killer. Most of the top guys eventually beat the same guys, so calling one a legend killer is a little dumb. Who did Orton beat that others didn't? Foley? Triple H? HBK? Cena? Plenty of other guys who beat them more than once. It's a silly gimmick.

If anyone is getting to get the Legend Killer gimmick, it will be Roman. He's already crossed off The Undertaker. He will retire Lesnar at Wrestlemania. Cena thereafter.

Rollins will only be a legend killer if he keeps causing injury to the roster or other part-timers.
