Seth Rollins has accomplished a lot during his time in WWE, as he is a multi-time world champion and has been part of solid feuds as well. Rollins has become one of the most dependable people in all of WWE now. WWE was also accused of messing up by not turning him babyface recently.
Cody Rhodes has been booked as the top babyface on Monday Night RAW since WrestleMania 38. However, he is now taking time off from WWE television due to his torn pectoral muscle injury.
On this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW, Seth Rollins showed respect to Cody Rhodes. However, he then proceeded to attack Rhodes. While speaking on Jim Cornette’s Drive-Thru podcast, Jim Cornette criticized WWE for messing up by not turning Rollins into a babyface.
“Then what about if next week after they announced that Seth – or that Cody is having surgery and is injured – to Seth who has just said these things and hugged him and shook his hand and kissed him and respects him came out and said, ‘Well, I’ll tell you what, I’ve been the champion before and I’m gonna do it again. This is lit a fire under me because Cody Rhodes may not be able to take advantage of his destiny but I could take advantage of mine’ and do some kind of f*cking angle.
The team is in need; Roman can come back for a TV. All Roman needs do is come out and basically say, ‘F*ck you, I’m in god mode over you too’ and f*cking drop Seth and him and his cohorts and then Seth is a full-fledged babyface and can wrestle any of the heels that Cody was gonna wrestle in his absence, and potentially have a match with Roman Reigns, which he is probably not gonna win, but at least it’d be something.”
We will have to wait and see what the company will have planned for Seth Rollins next. The Visionary will remain a highlight on WWE television no matter what he does in the end. If we’ve learned anything about pro wrestling it’s that anything can and will happen in WWE.
