Stone Cold Steve Austin continues to live up to his reputation as a blunt, in-your-face character even after retirement. The hard-hitting WWE legend gave his two cents on seth rollins’ persona during his recent podcast session, stating the former WWE champion hasn’t fully defined what kind of a character he is.

Austin, the man who spearheaded the Attitude Era in the late ‘90s to early ‘2000s, compares Rollins to Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart with regards to their world class in-ring technical skills. On the other hand, Stone Cold believes former Shield Member is not quite there when it comes to the Hitman’s level of ‘badassness.’

“In many regards, he was somewhat like Seth though, in many regards, Bret is an entirely different animal – but there is a case of a guy who was not a showy guy, but rather conservative, and had a highly-defined, world-class gimmick and was a badass worker.

Seth needs to work on this,” said Austin, who had memorable battles with Bret Hart at the height of their respective careers.

The Kingslayer attitude

After defeating his mentor Triple H at Wrestlemania 33, Rollins has introduced a brand new persona in the past two episodes of "Monday Night RAW." The Architect has become the Kingslayer about him vanquishing the King of Kings in his own terms.

While the Architect character has some ‘heelish’ feel to it despite being billed as anti-authority, the Kingslayer appears to have completed the full babyface turn of Rollins, who now yearns for the support and approval of the crowd.

Again, Austin has been paying attention to the evolution of Rollins’ character from a despicable pro-Authority champion to an underdog fan darling.

Although he had to admit the Rollins’ interaction with the fans has improved a lot as of late, Stone Cold felt there’s still a deep void the superstar needs to define his character adequately. Right now, Seth ‘Freaking’ Rollins stands as an excellent in-ring performer sans a larger-than-life personality like that of the Rock, Hulk Hogan, Stone Cold Steve Austin and Shawn Michaels.

New finishing move

It seems Rollins has completely moved out of the shadows of Triple H by ditching away the Pedigree for what fans dubbed as the ‘Kingslayer.’ After cameras had stopped airing on "RAW" last Monday, Rollins teamed up with Chris Jericho to take on Kevin Owens and Samoa Joe in a dark match. Rollins won the match via pinfall for his team after pulling off a move that resembles Kazuchika Okada’s Rainmaker, but with a leaping knee to the face instead of a clothesline.
