Seth Rollins’ time in promotions such as Ring Of Honor certainly helped him improve himself prior to making his way to WWE. Rollins has worked hard to become one of the mainstays of the company as well. He also criticized Bray Wyatt’s character recently.
Bray Wyatt’s Fiend character was one of the most creative gimmicks in the history of WWE. Unfortunately, WWE was never quite able to utilize it to the extent it should have been used.
While speaking with Ariel Helwani of BT Sport, Seth Rollins criticized The Fiend and stated that the character never made his opponents look any better.
“The Bray Wyatt character was just difficult. If you look at anybody that worked with the Bray Wyatt character for an extended period of time, they didn’t come out of it better than they went in. It was very difficult to have a story with him where aside from Randy, it was difficult for anyone. I think maybe Daniel Bryan might have escaped a little unscathed, but I mean everyone else pretty much met a dire end for their character. I mean that was the end for the Seth Rollins character as you knew it. The Beast Slayer character, you know?
It was tough figuring out how to tell a good wrestling story with that character. I was not good at the phenomenology stuff. I wasn’t able to interweave that with reality enough to make what I felt was a captivating story.”
We will have to wait and see whether Bray Wyatt really is returning soon, as it is likely a future feud with Rollins will be something that fans want to see.
