The recent gimmick of WWE star Seth Rollins often sees that he is conflicted with his actions but it is evident from his actions that he is a heel. His recent backstage segment after his match against WWE Hall of Famer Edge was lambasted by Jim Cornette.
Seth Rollins “should have been laughing”
Seth Rollins has been involved in a fierce feud with Edge and they squared off in a SummerSlam rematch during last week’s WWE SmackDown at the famous arena, Madison Square Garden. It was noted that Rollins’ reaction after the match was certainly confusing and Jim Cornette does not seem to be a huge fan of it.
According to the storyline, Edge had to be stretchered into an ambulance following the match on SmackDown. As a result, the WWE Hall of Famer’s opponent, Seth Rollins, who is a heel seemed confused about his victory later backstage.

Cornette went on to mention on a recent episode of his Drive-Thru podcast that Rollins “should have been laughing” over this huge victory during the backstage interview. He felt such a reaction would have created better on-screen sequence because The Messiah had purposely decimated Edge in the ring.
Cornette made some strong remarks on Rollins and was critical of the former WWE Champion. Here is what he said:
“It is some dramatic rendition of this basic verbiage over and over like he’s lost his mind and lost his ability to feel and all this bulls***. He’s a f***ing heel. He should have been laughing – ‘If he dies, he dies. I don’t give a f***. I meant to do it. I did it on purpose.’ That’s what a heel says.”
He added: “And obviously, since he did it on purpose, he meant to do it, so that would have been somewhat in keeping with the actions that we just saw him do five minutes earlier on the program. But [instead], it’s ‘I don’t know how to feel.’ Why are they trying to turn these guys into actors? ‘Cause they’re all rotten at it. All wrestlers are rotten actors.”
Cornette also felt that their match was good as per the standards of WWE. It has been noted that Edge will be out of action for a considerable amount of time and there is no word regarding his return.
