WWE Superstar Seth Rollins has enjoyed a career most could only dream of at this stage of his career, especially the man he is most related to, Shawn Michaels. The Heart Break Kid, for my money, is the greatest in-ring performer in history. Of course, this is all based on opinion, because everyone has their favorite. However, it does seem odd that we continue to compare Seth Rollins to HBK when he clearly is better than Michaels was at this stage.
This post is not saying Seth Rollins is better than Shawn Michaels overall. That would be crazy, as Michaels has done more than most and has a storied history that is tough to question. However, Seth Rollins is 30-years-old and has been a WWE Tag Team, United States, and World Heavyweight Champion on two occasions. He has been part of one of the greatest factions ever, The Shield, and has made his way into the main event of WrestleMania when he took home the WWE World Title after cashing in the Money in the Bank briefcase at WrestleMania 31.
He did all of this before his 30th birthday. It’s important to understand what type of accomplishment this is because few can ever claim to have something so huge. That includes Shawn Michaels, who did his best work after he turned 30-years-old. However, let us go back to his initial singles run with WWE when he turned on his Rockers partner and became the Heartbreak Kid we know today.
