Gutted to hear about the injury to Rollins. An incredible talent and, in my opinion, the best heel champion since Edge. The first priority is the guy fully recovering and moving forwards healthily.
There are two points leading from this injury though.
1) As I said in my previous post why is Kane even wrestling at the moment? No it isn't the 70's and fans are aware of the nature of the product but even so. At a time where Kane is "missing" why is he wrestling in the full gaze of the world. Poor, illogical short-sighted booking. Obviously I'm not blaming Kane for the injury, it could happen at any time but ,creatively, he should never have been on the card in the first place.
2) And to those who were bored with Rollins as champ I've got one question.
Who takes the title at Survivor Series? Who is on Seth's all round level to be champ?
Think about everything it requires then look at the main roster.
Reigns? Ambrose? Sheamus? Cesaro? Wyatt? Cena? We'll all have differing views on those guys but do any of them really fit the bill? In my opinion not one of them is ready to be champ at this time.
There are two men who do. One is Kevin Owens. The only real heel on the main card in my view and the most developed character without gimmicks. Sadly can't see it though.
The other is HHH and this actually makes sense to me. They need a real difference maker who has the experience, ego and storyline reason to take the gold. "The Game" could play off the simmering resentment between he and Rollins and take some kind of responsibility. He would then become an uber heel and I believe would be more accepted as champ by the fans for those reasons than Cena. This would lead to a SHIELD reunion on Rollins return and would be both creatively and $$$$ satisfying.
Anyway thoughts with Seth.
Until next time...at ease.
