If you heard the name Colby Lopez, you probably wouldn't think much about it. It's a fairly ordinary name, and we wouldn't imagine the person being all that threatening, especially with the first name Colby. However, what if we said Colby Lopez was someone who has spent the better part of the last 11 years developing his craft inside and out of the ring. Many fans that follow the WWE may not know that Colby Lopez is gone, and an architect stands in his place today: none other than Seth Rollins.
During his time in independent promotions, Rollins was known for his deep repertoire of moves and aggressive fighting style, an ability to captivate an audience due to his unrelenting will to achieve. He was being noticed, and it was only a matter of time before he transitioned from promotions such as PWG and ROH to a much grander scale. Once the opportunity presented itself, Seth Rollins was born.
Development in Rollins career certainly saw its ups and downs. Much like anyone else's career that undergoes a change, Rollins transitions from promotion to promotion led him to go in a number of different directions. Whether it was as a fan favorite or a despised heel, Rollins always made an effort to stand out. Rollins really ran the gamut while trying to evolve. Gone is the wrestler who did a number of spots alone, but is it forgotten? We give you 14 things the WWE wants you to forget about Seth Rollins.

3 He Was Initially Selected By CM Punk To Be A Part of The Shield
1 His Twitter Picture Fiasco
On Monday February 9th, 2015, Rollins was unfortunately linked to a rather embarrassing scenario that was tied to his Twitter account. As Monday Night Raw was about to go on the air, nude images of Rollins appeared on his Twitter feed, which is directly linked to the WWE website. The images served as retaliation by his fiancée Leighla Schultz, who was furious when she found out that Rollins was having an affair with promising NXT diva Zahra. Rollins apologized publicly to his family and friends the next day, and stated that these pictures were released without his consent. It's pretty clear to see why this wouldn't be something the promotion would want fans to recall, as it definitely left one of their top stars both literally and metaphorically in a compromising position, and left the company's social media feed subject to some criticism.
