The Royal Rumble pay-per-view aired live from St. Louis last weekend, and the Royal Rumble matches weren’t the only thing fans were talking about after the show was over.

Seth Rollins challenged Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship at the Royal Rumble, and Seth played mind games with Roman when he entered to The Shield’s music dressed in riot gear.

During a recent episode of his Hall of Fame podcast Booker T talked about the reaction that Seth Rollins got as he made his entrance, and how he thinks Seth became a babyface in that moment.

“Did you see the crowd? If it would have been back in the day it would have been stuff getting thrown in the ring, it was like that. That’s what I am talking about as far as making the fans feel a certain way. Because Roman, his intensity, his intent, it makes it as real as it possibly can to the fan that is watching it. They actually get caught up in the moment. Seth Rollins became the biggest babyface in the arena after that right there. The person that can carry that is Seth Rollins as well.”
