Mick Foley on Seth Rollins' character and the criticism he received

Mick Foley has always brought interesting topics to his podcast. It was the same this time. The main topic of conversation was Seth Rollins. Foley responded to the criticism that was directed at Rollins regarding his character and willingness to do anything.

However, this is exactly what makes Rollins such a wrestler. “I remember there were people thinking it was the most embarrassing thing in wrestling, you know, this Seth Rollins thing, and I was like, he’s onto something and he’s sinking his teeth into it and it was just so much fun to see him evolve and just take to it.

It reminds me of Edge at the peak of Edge’s character prowess where he just bit into everything he did with gusto. I did a little article about Edge when he retired, we all thought for good, and I said, ‘He embraced the ridiculous.’ It didn’t matter how silly it was, he was going to make the very most out of it”.

Mick Foley on Seth Rollins

Foley was not a big optimist at the beginning of Rollins' career. However, Seth was patient, persistent, and it paid off in the end. Foley expects Rollins to do even bigger things in the future.

“In the beginning, the new Seth Rollins seemed to be a little silly and he just kept going with it, believing in it, to where now the crowd obviously, and I don’t watch wrestling nearly as much as I used to, but I watch it enough to know that this guy is at a point where it’s the perfect marriage of in-ring talent and in-character.

So a really great belt for him, and I think it’s important that the title not go to Cody because I think what Cody is going through in this series with Brock Lesnar is giving him the credentials so that when he does, and I think there will definitely be a moment where he becomes that guy, everyone will feel like he deserves it”.
