The latest “Kliq This” podcast, featuring Kevin Nash and Sean Oliver, is now available on all streaming platforms. They talked about NXT moving to The CW next year, WarGames, Joe Piscopo, and a variety of other topics.
Fans have praised and criticized Seth Rollins for his character, with some believing he is being portrayed as too light or comedic. In recent months, Rollins has been portrayed as more serious, particularly during his feud with Shinsuke Nakamura. Nash admitted that he didn’t like the Seth Freakin’ Rollins character at first, but he’s since changed his mind.
Nash said, “I didn’t like the fu**ing Seth Freakin’ Rollins character for like, quite a while and then I just realized like in the last maybe two months that he’s kind of like the modern day Macho.”
Nash complimented Rollins’ working style and mentioned his glasses. He said, “He has that kind of glasses, and I mean, he just got kind of a Macho Man vibe. If you were to modernize Macho Man, he would be kind of like Seth, plus he can work his fu**ing ass off. He’s really fu**ing good.”
Nash continued, “They showed some highlights of the match from the Crown Jewel, and they had some pretty, even in the match he had on RAW, he wrestled Sami and they had some, like, just false finishes that were just, you thought it was it. One was just Sami hooked him and kind of gave him like a powerbomb, but like Rollins had, his right arm was loose, and instead of like, the big kick, he was just able to just kind of roll out. I just thought it was a good piece of business there.”
