The EST of NXT
Keep That Same Energy
Let me be clear in saying this isn't a Rollins vs. Jinder comparison thread in regards to skillset or Main Event potential. This is simply pointing out the effectiveness of their respective presentations as heel champions. Now that that's out of the way, lets begin.
If you were here in 2015, you know I was VERY vocal about my disdain for Rollins' title reign. Besides the utilization of 40 minutes of airtime to ultimately accomplish nothing, my biggest gripe with his presentation was the fact that he had two midgets run to his rescue, and STILL lost almost all of his televised matches. They seem to have corrected that with Jinder Mahal. If you've been watching his journey to the title in its entirety, you'd see that the Singh Brothers have assisted him in nearly every matchup, similarly to J & J security, but the difference is Jinder has WON all of his matches. It was counterproductive for Rollins to need all of that help, yet STILL get his ass whooped. Jinder and the squad are booked correctly as top heels, in that in spite of the Singh Brothers getting their asses whooped, Jinder manages to get the upper hand and come out on top. Regardless of how you feel about him being champion, THIS is how a heel that requires assistance should be booked.
