"Heavy lies the head that wears the crown." Last year, I thought Rollins was one of the top ten in the world and had probably his best year all around that he's had at least in WWE. This year, while he's been pushed harder and higher, he's definitely not produced the same level of quality of matches as he did last year. It didn't help that he spent the majority of his time after Mania in an underwhelming feud with Baron Corbin or that he got overshadowed by his girlfriend/fiancee. There has been some good stuff (the Styles match, the Shield six man from before Mania), but definitely a down year for the King slayer.

Definitely someone who suffered from being overexposed, put in a spot unfit for him, as well as bad booking compounding problems outside of the product. His outbursts on Twitter have done a lot to estrange him from the very fans who were singing his praises just last year. But working a Hell in a Cell that ends in stoppage? That does no one any favors either. Really steep decline.
