This Week in Wrestling 2019 Week 47

Brian Damage

It’s Saturday and today we have ’This Week in Wrestling’, the 47th of 2019. Today Brian discusses the fall of Seth Rollins and shares all the best wrestling content from this week.


The Fall of Seth Rollins

After the Shield debuted at the Survivor Series seven years ago, fans instantly began wondering which member would be the company’s break out star. Some chose Dean Ambrose, while others picked Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins to be the guy to rise to the top. Each member had a great deal of success as single wrestlers, but it was Rollins who really made the biggest leap.

Oh sure, Roman Reigns was THE GUY that Vince McMahon chose, but it was Seth Rollins that got the opportunity to stand out first when he turned heel and aligned with the Authority. Seth also had a ton more ability as a technical wrestler than Reigns had and fans booed Reigns for being the unofficial “chosen one.” Rollins was the first member to become WWE world champion and be the top guy.

As many accolades as Seth achieved in his WWE career, years later it seems as if Roman and Seth have switched places with fans. Roman is more universally accepted now than Seth Rollins. Rollins gets more negative reaction now as a babyface as he did as a heel. What led to fans turning on Seth Rollins? He is still a great wrestler…but something has turned people off about him.

Being ‘the guy’ in WWE has a price. You can only be on top for so long before fans get bored of you and turn. It happened to Hulk Hogan, the Rock, John Cena and many others. Fans have rejected Seth as a locker room leader. Seth needs to reinvent himself as many feel bored and tired of his character.

Will a simple heel turn do or must Rollins need to take an extended break and just disappear for a while? One thing is for sure, something needs to happen and fast. They need to burn it down.

  1. Although Seth is an annoying prick this last run since Mania has been wwe booking fault.
    1st off his opposition:
    While i like Corbin Corbin SHOULDA never been da top challenger. And after Corbin he faved Stowman n a very forced and short feud. W/a unnecessary tag title reign that did shit 4 either 1 of em. Lost 2 Brock then won it back. Then faced Da Fiend n a another match that shouldn’t have happened. W/a terrible finish!!! Give him better more interesting opponents and storylines!!!
    2nd: Him and Becky Lynch shoulda never became a story. Shoulda been kept seperate!!! Maybe even 1 of em shipped 2 smackdown during da 1st draft.
    3rd: Keep him off Twitter or any social media that can jeopardize his position n wwe(kayfabe where r u???)

    Liked by 1 person

    • 1 more thing: he loses da title and instead of going 4 a rematch he “instantly wannabe MNR leader???” I mean y isnt he trying 2 get a rematch(moving Da Fiend 2 smackdown did him no favors). And even then da man he beat 4 times(Brock Lesnar mania, ss,mania again, ss again) he has 0 interactions wit now that he is back on HIS SHOW w/da top title. Smdh
