Seth Rollins is no stranger to being a heel and The Architect recently returned to his roots when he turned heel once again and formed a stable with Authors Of Pain.
The former Universal Champion recently had an interview with San Antonio Express where he talked about a number of things and also explained why it’s easier to be a heel in WWE nowadays.
Rollins said that it’s a different era compared to back in the day and it’s easier to be an antagonist because anybody who consumes entertainment has a voice:
“It is a different era than it was back in the day. Now, it’s easier to be an antagonist because … anybody who consumes entertainment has a voice to be heard, they can get online and say whatever they want, and even if one or two people respond to it,”
Continuing on the topic, the former champion claimed that if you can maintain being a hero for a lengthy period in today’s age, then you are doing something incredible:
“That’s one or two people more than 20 years ago when they were just sitting in their living room talking crap to their friends. … Our audience looks for things to complain about, to dislike and to pick apart. It’s such a short, short lifespan. If you can maintain being in that hero role for a lengthy period of time, you are doing something incredible.”
