Why would you do this to us Vince?
That has to be the question that plays through The WWE Universe’s mind on almost a daily basis and while Vince McMahon has also been known for some of the greatest storytelling and matches of all time, he’s not without his faults. Of course not every decision he’s made has been bad or even fairly evaluated , but there are times when he literally just doesn’t give the the fans what they want for some unknown reason. Unfortunately for former WWE Champion and Shield brethren, Seth Rollins, this is one of those times!
For those that may have forgotten, or are just mesmerized by the awesomeness that is Seth Rollins’s current offensive move set inside the ring, Rollins used to use what was known as the curb stomp for his finisher, but that was eventually overrule. Of course it didn’t change too much about Rollins’s character and he still had a pretty decent title reign before his knee injury put him out for several months, but still there were fans that longed for the controversial move to be re allowed and hated the idea of him using The Pedigree.
“So Vince McMahon is sitting wherever Vince McMahon sits on a Monday morning and he’s seeing me on the Today Show and I look good in a suit,” Rollins explained via WrestlingInc when asked about the ban on the finishing move, “I’m representing the company. I look good in a suit. And I’m wearing the title and then he sees this package of me stomping another man’s head into the ground and it being called The Curbstomp on national television. And he thought to himself, ‘well, that’s not a good representation of what I want my top guy to do,’ so he just had a meeting with some of his people, and they decided, ‘well, we don’t need it – we can figure out another finish for you’ and the rest is history. I get it. I hate it. I think it’s silly, but it is what it is and it’s not my company. I’m doing the best I can with it.”
With that being said, it seems like Seth Rollins is pretty upset about the decision that McMahon and his team ultimately decided upon and while he would probably like to have it back, its sadly not best for business at this time. Whether that changes or not or Vince McMahon somehow pulls off the shocker of the century by allowing Rollins to use it again remains to be seen, but with the family friendly nature of a lot of WWE’s programming today, it really doesn’t seem feasible.
