Does anyone notice something different about Seth Rollins? It's almost as if WWE has given 'The BeastSlayer' a darker edge over the last month or so and are continuing to have him do things that seem to be out of the norm for him. In fact, between his ruthless assault on The Fiend at Hell in a Cell and burning down The Firefly Fun House, it's pretty safe to say that WWE has something planned for 'The Architect.'
Exactly what happens and how it all plays out in the WWE storyline remains to be seen, but it feels as if Seth Rollins is heading for a pretty climactic heel turn. Of course, there will always be some that believe WWE doesn't want to turn him heel, especially with how beloved he is, but these five signs suggest otherwise.
As always, let us know your thoughts in the comments below and be sure to tell us what you think of a possible heel turn for Rollins.
#5 Kevin Owens
Kevin Owens made his triumphant return to Monday Night RAW during last week's main event and it's pretty safe to say that the company already wants to make him a centerpiece of the Red brand. That, coupled with the fact that WWE has been booking him as a sort of anti-hero as of late, points to Owens being the next big babyface on the roster.
With that in mind and the RAW roster now needing a new heel in order to bring balance back to the brand, it makes sense that Rollins could be that guy. Why else would WWE do controversial finish after controversial finish? Why else would Seth Rollins be gaining a darker edge to his character? All these things mean something and the meaning might be revealed to be a Seth Rollins heel turn.
The WWE Universe isn't behind Rollins like they used to be, especially after the finish at Hell in a Cell, and keeping him a good guy simply isn't sustainable anymore. That's why WWE needs to build Owens up as a babyface and pull the trigger on Rollins' inevitable heel run. At least that way, WWE will have introduced a new dynamic and will have created a great rivalry in Kevin Owens vs Seth Rollins. This could also breathe life into an increasingly stale title picture.
