Edge could play a likeable babyface, a goofily obnoxious heel or the ultimate prick heel with equal effectiveness. Seth did good as a heel, but to me doesn't come off well as a babyface. That isn't to say he is insincere or unlikeable, just that he lacks the necessary conviction to draw me in with his words and personality. As a babyface he gets dull. He plays the heel better.
I realized Edge was great in his feud with Kurt Angle.  That's the other thing missing from Rollins, and everyone from this generation.  There's no one to give them the run, no one who beating them means anything, and no one to elevate them with a different style.  Edge went from the TLC guy doing flippety-floppity spots with the Hardys to a real deal main event caliber wrestler thanks to Angle.  Rollins will never have that.

This thread was great before AA ruined it.
