Seth Rollins' face run in 2019 was far from what he or WWE officials would have been expecting of the former Shield member.
There were a number of reasons for Rollins less than stellar run before he eventually turned heel and took on the messiah gimmick.
A lowlight of Rollins' time as a face was his feud with The Fiend that culminated in a match at the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view in 2019.
The match was performed in a red light that made it very hard for those live in attendance to see as well as making it a rather uninspiring event for those watching at home.
The match itself also had a very disappointing finish when the match was called off as a no-result despite being in the Hell in a Cell stipulation.
Speaking on Steve Austin's Broken Skull Sessions, Rollins said the match didn't go the way he had anticipated at all.
"My vision for what that match was going to be was a lot different than what we had to go out there and do," he said
"We went out there and did what we were told to do to the best of our ability. Obviously, as it was ongoing, I felt...you watch it back, it's boos piled upon boos piled upon boos and at the end of it, the reaction when the audience didn't get the result they wanted, that's a real tough pill to swallow.
"It sucks. It's a sucky feeling. You go back to it now, we talked about the Drip God character, that character doesn't exist without that match. That's really the catalyst for what happened later that year. That happened in October, by the time December and January roll around, I'm no longer 'Burn It Down' Seth Rollins, I'm a totally different being.
"Things happen for a reason, they happen the way they're supposed to happen. It was what it was, but here we are. Where we are now doesn't exist without that match."
Rollins said he was so livid after the match that he came through the curtain furious with Vince McMahon before being held back from the boss.
"I put a positive spin on it now because I can look back a year and a half later, but at the time, I came through that curtain and I was ready to strangle Vince McMahon. I'm not kidding you," Rollins told Austin.
This is fascinating. Fair play that the Hell In A Cell 2019 booking drove Seth Rollins nuts. Oh to be a fly on the wall for him and Vince back there 😂 pic.twitter.com/vdEgkWJXoj

"TJ Wilson was there to hold me back. I stared right into Vince's eyes, I looked at him, he looked at me, we didn't say a single word to each other and he walked out. I sat down with Paul Heyman, who was creative director at Raw, I sat down with him and we had a conversation. He 'Paul Heyman'd me,' if you will.
"The next day, I went into Vince's office, I was much calmer, and I said, 'Let's talk about this. We need to figure out what we're doing here because that can't happen again.' It was civil, but it took me a night. I was ready to go. If somebody wasn't there making sure I was okay, my temper and the adrenaline.
"In my head, if you go back to the match, I'm convinced that if it would have went our way, it wouldn't be (voted Worst Match of the Year in the Wrestling Observer)."
Rollins has gone on to be a terrific heel as both the "Messiah" and "Drip God" character which has him currently feuding with WWE Hall of Famer Edge.
