Anyways, as for Magnus:
Yes! I mentioned him as well.
Without a doubt, one of THE best performers right now, given his age. He quite easily blows away all other candidates.
Now, could he be THE top face in WWE: Maybe not?
It's because he is British. I see that as a prohibiter of him being the top face.
How is that different from Sheamus beeing Irish, yet beeing pushed like Cena? I don't think the nation-based bias works in 2012 anymore tbh as proven by my example, if somebody can sell tickets, he will receive the push. Vince doesn't really have a ton of potential money makers in his hands so that he can choose if he wants them to be american or not, as long as there is somebody who is a bonafide WWE maineventer like him, he will take him. But yeah, the dude is something else, there's quite a few WWE and TNA maineventers 10 years older than him who have a hard time keeping up with him or flatout lose in most departments, imagine what he can do once he hits his prime.
