Is Seth Rollins still a babyface?

Seth Rollins is babyfaced for the first time in over three years. The visionary slowly turned into a good guy over the past few months, as fans began showering the current WWE United States Champion with more cheer every week. That said, Rollins’ internal status has been called into question over the past week Monday Night Raw after he delivered an interesting promo. While he was running one of his upcoming opponents in Austin Theory, who is firmly on his heels on the Raw roster, Rollins said it’s not going to end well for him to make a name for himself at his expense. If Theory didn’t believe him, “just call Cody Rhodes and ask him how his rehab is going.”

While Rhodes is on the shelf, he was last positioned as a top babyface on Monday Night Raw. This dynamic caught the attention of the Struggling Observer‘s Bryan Alvarez, who noted that despite the promo, Rollins is still on the internal roster as a babyface.

At the time of writing, Rollins is essentially the biggest Monday night good guy. With Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns, it actually only works further WWE SmackDown today the United States Championship, which Rollins holds, is the highest singles prize for male wrestlers Raw. Other notable babyface names on the red brand include the recently returned Kevin Owens and WWE Hall of Famer Edge, but the latter works on a part-time schedule.

Regardless of where his loyalties lie, Rollins will defend his WWE United States Championship this Saturday at WWE Survivor Series against Austin Theory and Bobby Lashley. These three have been linked to the US title for months as Theory held the championship for months before losing it to Lashley at WWE money in the bank. Lashley himself reigned all summer, but dropped the belt to Rollins during an October edition of Monday Night Raw. Theory got involved in the star-studded title scene again two weeks ago when he tried to cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase on Rollins, but was ultimately unsuccessful thanks to interference from Lashley. While a WWE superstar failing to cash in on his money in the bank contract is nothing new, Theory’s attempt marked the first time a wrestler used the guaranteed title opportunity for anything other than a world championship.

WWE Survivor Series goes on Saturday 26 November.
