Roman Reigns vs Seth Rollins
May 29, 2017
Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, SC
WWE Monday Night Raw
Roman Reigns is so underrated, on so many levels. Not commensurate with his push, but rather his respect among “smart” fans (many of whom aren’t all that smart, since they continue to react strongly to him and thus ensure his continued push) for his ability. He was so good here, with his selling, offense, and timing. Seth Rollins is an even better wrestler, which is often taken for granted because he’s been so good for so long that people just expect it from him now without giving him the praise he deserves.
You pit two of the best wrestlers in America against each other, with a hot crowd, and you get a **** match. The rating should’ve been higher, but again shows the anti-WWE bias of Dave Meltzer, who hands **** ratings out like candy to New Japan matches that are nowhere near as good or as this was.
Great back and forth action here, definitely worth watching on the WWE Network.
