Seth Rollins’ time in promotions such as Ring Of Honor certainly helped him hone his craft before making his way to WWE. Rollins’ current obnoxious heel character never fails to annoy fans. His gimmick has now been compared to one of DC’s most iconic villains.
The Messiah of Drip made his way to Monday Night RAW in October last year. Since then, he has feuded with the likes of Edge and is now embroiled in a bitter feud with Cody Rhodes.
Seth Rollins’ absurd fashion sense and manic laughter have certainly won him over with fans. While speaking on his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T compared Seth Rollins’ character to DC’s Joker.
“The stuff with Seth Rollins, I really have been trying to get into this character that he’s been doing for quite some time and [I’m] finally buying into it. The laughing and then turning serious – and then going into the ring and giving a stellar performance. He’s like The Joker, as in he is sort of different, but when it comes to performing he’s second to none. And that’s what I like about this angle, Cody and Seth Rollins have been doing some real good work.”
Seth Rollins and Cody Rhodes are set to square off against each other at Hell In A Cell on Sunday. We’ll have to see whether Cody Rhodes will win again and have a clean sweep over Rollins. Fans are looking forward to the match as well.
