Seth Rollins’ heel turn on this week’s episode of WWE Monday Night RAW was a legitimate heel turn and that’s the direction of his character moving forward.
The idea to turn him heel was apparently his and the decision to go with it was made just prior to this week’s RAW. It’s not some type of slow turn and one pundit compared it to Bret Hart’s turn in 1997.
Internally, the feeling was that he was going to be a babyface until further notice, even in spite of getting booed everywhere they went. No word on why things changed so rapidly but it’s a done deal.
