WWE has gone through many eras of wrestling over the past few decades. Seth Rollins is currently the Universal Champion and the face of WWE. He has his own thoughts regarding WWE’s way of telling a story.
Seth Rollins spoke to the Houston Chronicle, where he talked about WWE’s gradual change in storytelling over the years. According to him, it’s a “wacky medium” and he referenced Mick Foley’s different personas with regards to how WWE still tells different kinds of stories inside the squared circle.
“Yeah, wrestling is a wacky medium that allows you to tell stories different ways. Foley’s a great example. He’s an amazing storyteller who has done it different ways. He was great in the ring. He was great at making his injuries entertaining. And he was also athletic when he had to be. Our audience now asks for the storytelling, but they also enjoy a faster-paced style. A little more high-flying style. It’s more action packed.”
“You transition into different slayers. Beast Slayer. Hey, there’s always something out there to slay. There’s always something out there to slay. You find a way to make a new monster. The arc of my character over seven years has been all over the place. And there’s an infinite number of places to go from here.”
Seth Rollins is currently engaged in a feud with Bray Wyatt and he will be facing him for the Universal Title at WWE Crown Jewel, in a falls count anywhere match.
