WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has posted a new blog entry over at his website in which he discusses a number of topics from the world of professional wrestling. One of the key points J.R. mentioned was the conclusion of Monday’s WWE Raw which featured Seth Rollins and Triple H:
“The close of the show was memorable and well done by all involved. The villains, HHH and Stephanie, were spot on and Foley showed everyone how a babyface sells with their facial expressions especially the eyes and body English. Brilliantly done piece of business.
It felt like the fans accepted Seth Rollins as the protagonist that he is being positioned to be in WWE as Rollins’ courage and SELLING appealed to the fans in Detroit. No, the suicidal, career threatening dives didn’t do it but, instead, it was crowd psychology and the fundamental application of the genre’s most viable dramatic weapon, selling and convincing one’s audiece come along for the journey.
For those wondering, I fully expect Rollins vs HHH at WM Orlando where Rollins needs a career defining victory vs a future HOFER on the biggest stage of them all.”
