Recently on The Steve Austin Show, WWE Hall Of Famer Steve Austin shared his thoughts on WWE Superstar Seth Rollins' connection to the audience, his character, and compared Rollins to WWE Hall Of Famer Bret 'Hitman' Hart.
"Rollins is somewhat over, not all-the-way over, not by a long shot. Now, I don't mean that in a bad way. That's just being honest." Austin explained, "he [has] relied on his sequences and his athleticism to carry him. To take him to the next level, he'll have to get more character development."
Austin admitted that he still does not have a sense of the Seth Rollins character.
"When you say 'Seth Rollins' or if you want to say 'Seth Freakin' Rollins', I still don't have a sense of what or who this guy is. And so, that rests on Seth Rollins' shoulders, as an individual, as a performer, to define or create that as well as the WWE because I still don't get a sense of what kind of personality he is."
Austin went on to compare 'The Kingslayer' to another top notch in-ring performer who was an introvert by nature, the legendary Bret Hart.
"Bret wasn't an over-the-top guy. He was a pretty humble and a very quiet individual outside the ring, so in many regards kind of somewhat like Seth although Bret's an entirely different animal, but there's a case of a guy who's not a showy kind of guy, but very conservative, but just a highly defined gimmick, a badass gimmick, and a world class worker, so Seth needs to work on this."
