Stone Cold Steve Austin knows all about entertainment in WWE, and he believes Seth Rollins needs to turn up his 'entertainment factor' when performing.
Austin was one of the biggest stars of the WWE during the Attitude Era, not only because he was a great wrestler, but because he was a great entertainer inside the ring as well.
Speaking on a recent episode of The Steve Austin Show, the WWE Hall of Famer reflected on the entertainment Rollins brings to the ring in WWE.
The Texas Rattlesnake believes The Beastslayer is a great talent from bell to bell, but he must bring more 'entertainment factor' whenever he is in the ring in the future.
Austin said, via Wrestling Inc: "Seth's a tremendous worker and I just think, man, when he turns up that entertainment factor, because he's pretty reserved on the horn. And, man, if you go back and watch my promos, I mean, I never know what I'm going to say.

"I mean, I have things because of storylines and that and angles, so I know where I'm going, but I'll stutter or I'll miss a word, but it's all emotion."
Austin added: "I think that emotions sell tickets, but also being larger than life sells tickets, so if he could just learn to amp it up a little bit, because every time I had a stick in my hands, I was trying to channel and emit energy and people feed off that."
Obviously, Rollins can't start doing what Austin did during the Attitude Era to turn up his entertainment factor. Times have changed since then, but Austin raises a valid point.
Many fans and critics would argue that the feud between Rollins and Brock Lesnar for SummerSlam almost fell flat before the pay-per-view, to the point where loud 'What?' chants were being said by fans during The Beastslayer's promos.
Rollins was able to turn things around at SummerSlam with an incredible match with Lesnar where he won the Universal Championship.
Now he just needs to carry that through to his weekly Raw appearances and turn up that entertainment factor as Austin says.News Now - Sport News
