Would Roman still have been their guy if Lesnar, Batista or Orton were options?

If Brock, Batista or Orton had come up with Roman, do you think they would have pushed Roman or would have persisted with his super push?

The only competition for FOTC Roman has are Balor and Seth, both of which are piss weak options. Now say if Brock, Batista or Orton were genuine candidates, do you think he would have been pushed ahead of them? All of them have a equal or better look, more charisma, were/are more over and are better on the mic. Brock may be debatable in the mic department, but he's Brock fucking Lesnar, when he opens his mouth to say something, you listen.

Cena beat a strong field to become FOTC, Reigns seems to have gotten there because the alternatives are weak. The alternatives from the previous era would have been far better options for FOTC today, it's a shame they all were part of one era.

Roman would probably go to the CFL.

Prime Brock and Batista over any version of Reigns Vince isn't that stupid. Well maybe.

Brock was given a better push back when they still had Rock, Angle, Taker, Austin, HHH and many others. Reigns is overpushed, but that's only because they have literaly no idea how to make a star anymore. They just throw accolades at a guy and hope it works. Brock would have suffered the same fate nowadays, he's just lucky that he was established back when they knew how to make a good show.

Not the same at all.

Brock has a larger than life presence like Goldberg. It's not surprising he was one of the UFC's biggest draws.

Roman isn't in that league, I don't even think he's in the one below it.

When Goldberg made his return last year, it really showed how huge of a difference there is between his physical charisma and Roman's.

And lol, didn't they do the same thing for Lesnar? He went over Hogan, Rock, Austin (was supposed to go over him), Taker won the rumble and main evented a WM within a few years.

If Batista was willing to come back full time Vince would put him as face of the company over Roman right now.

He'd also have Lesnar as face of the company right now if he was willing to work a full time schedule, just look at what he pays him compared to Roman and thats with Lesnars reduced schedule. It's clear Lesnar is Vince's real favourite not Roman.

I think Roman would be 4th choice from this list. I would think WWE and Vince would want to have Brock as their FOTC, if not then they wouldn't mind putting a young Orton/Batista in that spot. I just don't see how Roman makes the cut among those guys.

What a strange thread. Do you think someone not having the same level of star potential as Brock, Batista and Orton reflects badly on them in any way?

You're coming up with the absolutely shittest ways to discredit Balor and Reigns. There are so many valid things to complain about and you're saying that he's bad because he wouldn't be able to overcome Batista and Brock Lesnar

Yes, the three alternatives to Cena who never truly held the role of FOTC for a meaningful period of time being better options than their rejected top guy, who is booed out of arenas isn't an interesting topic at all

Yes because there's a consensus opinion that he's not even better than the majority of the current roster and you're talking about future HOFs like Dave and Lesnar
You're acting like it's this hot take to say that Reigns isn't a great FOTC and that he's not deserving of it. This thread is just you stating the obvious as always.
