You’ve probably noticed that Seth Rollins wears one glove on WWE television now. And while it’s works nicely as a smarmy thing to do for his new heel character, it turns out that’s not the reason he started wearing it.
As he explained to the Houston Chronicle:
“It’s a happy accident. I will say that I broke my finger about six weeks ago and I have to wear a splint when I wrestle, and so I have to wear a glove over the top of the splint to keep it from moving when I’m wrestling. Obviously, I could have taken six weeks off and not wrestled at all, but that’s not really what I do. So, the alternative was trying to tape it, but tape didn’t seem to keep it on very well. So, I just put a glove over top of it to keep it down. And, and I like, and it’s weird and so it is one of the things that people they say, ‘Why is he wearing one glove?’ The fact that you’re asking me this question means that it’s doing its job. I think we will stick with it and see what the glove becomes over time.”
I don’t know how much I agree with his logic at the end there, but he’s not far off. I know if I see a guy wearing only one glove looking as smug as this guy does, I immediately despise him and hope to see Kevin Owens and/or Samoa Joe put him through a table.
So, yeah, I guess it’s working out!
