Seth Rollins has done it all in WWE as a top babyface and as a heel, which is why he’s more than qualified to talk about what it’s like in those roles.
As the first-ever and current WWE World Heavyweight Champion that has held the championship for over five months, Seth Rollins (aka Seth “Freakin” Rollins) is firmly entrenched as the “face” of the WWE Raw brand.
It’s a role that Rollins is used to because he has been in it for many years now and it’s why he often refers to Raw as “Monday Night Rollins” at times.
During his 11 years on the WWE main roster, Rollins has been both a top heel (bad guy) and top babyface (good guy) numerous times. In both roles, Rollins has been a main event performer and a World Champion with many memorable moments including his first WWE Title win at WrestleMania 31 when he cashed in the Money in the Bank briefcase.
Currently, Rollins is a babyface that plays to the fans as well as anybody thanks to his catchy theme song the fans sing whether the music playing and they even do it when it stops.
While appearing on the popular show Last Meals on YouTube, Rollins explained the babyface and heel dynamic in pro wrestling.
“Life is not black and white. And so good and evil aren’t always so black and white. There’s a lot of gray area.”
Seth Rollins admits that things are always changing in pro wrestling
As he continued, Seth Rollins (aka the man who tweets about hating football due to his Chicago Bears often losing) spoke about how things are always changing, so you have to learn how to perform for a large crowd.
“And the other thing is that it always changes. The same thing goes with wrestling, right? So to figure out how that applies to a large crowd, what they want or what they want to cheer, the difference between a good guy and a bad buy–a heel and a babyface–I think figuring that out and being able to put it into practice teaches you a lot about people.”
Seth Rollins will be in action tonight on WWE’s Monday Night Raw when he faces JD McDonagh in singles action. This Saturday, November 4th at WWE Crown Jewel, Rollins will have a tough test as he defends the World Heavyweight Title against Drew McIntyre.
All of this is coming after Rollins took part in a four-day tour of Germany last week. Seth’s a busy man, as usual.
