It's not been a banner year if you're a fan of wrestling attire, as well you might have noticed by the lack of articles such as these following every monthly supershow.
It's hard to argue with the rationale of the wrestlers that have chosen not to put particular effort or finances into threads for a wall of Zoom calls.

Seth Rollins has recently suggested that the current set up allows for "cleaner" production on promos and the like, but he's been browbeaten by audiences in the past for not being the babyface they loved nor the heel they loved to hate. Whatever-reaction-you-want.wav is probably perfect for the former WWE and Universal Champion, but thankfully it didn't deter him getting some new threads made for the biggest show of the year.

Is Seth Rollins making a play for presidential power?
There's probably been better times in his career to try and court public favour, but the former 'Messiah' invoked Barack Obama's "Change" iconography as part of his grandiose new "Embrace The Vision" mantra.
It's reasonable (at best) patter for the man who should have been thrown in Twitter jail for his own sake back in 2019, but at least it looked class. Rollins has burned down much of the love and support he used to foster, but he never fails to deliver the sartorial goods on 'The Grandest Stage'.
