Before Seth Rollins was the “Drip God,” he was a babyface WWE Champion that fans were starting to turn on. In an interview with Fox Sports, Rollins opened up about how latest run as a babyface falling flat.
“When you’re a babyface in this era, it is hard to keep people liking you,” Rollins admitted. “It is difficult because I think people’s natural reaction is, for whatever reason, to dislike almost everything, and I don’t know why that is. That’s what entertainment has turned into. So to be frustrated, unsatisfied or not like something, that’s what’s cool – especially when you’re told you’re supposed to like it – and so it becomes pretty hard not to let that go to your head.”
Rollins says he got completely different reactions at live events as the fans would be 100 percent behind him.
“It was very confusing, and I think sometimes it pushes our creative process in directions we, maybe, shouldn’t be going. But that’s how it is. That’s how the business is these days, and so you gotta figure it out, and you gotta adapt. If you don’t, you’re going to get left by the wayside.”
