Re: Can someone tell me the hype behind Reigns?

OP you nailed all your points and the hype is coming from some people that should temper it down. I want to see some actual MIC work for the love of jeebus. Then at that point maybe we can? At the moment his two partners are way above him in that category (from the little we've seen) and honestly that is extremely important.

The guy can spear people and has the look, that's all he has. There is no hype here.

FYI I do like him and hope he does well and possibly gets on top but right now that hype isn't even close to warranted.

Re: Can someone tell me the hype behind Reigns?

Good look and presence, believability (important considering not many wrestlers come across as believable anymore) decent in the ring and he's only been wrestling a few years so there's plenty of room for improvement, great finisher (Reigns is one of the best users of the spear we've seen in a long time). And I say all this and I'm not even a fan of him, I'm just calling it as I see it. I like Ambrose the most out of The Shield, but I see Roman Reigns being a bigger star than Ambrose or Rollins easily. He has more star potential. So this is why people like Reigns, that and, being in a group with two indy darlings has helped with his popularity on here.

I wouldn't mind Reigns getting a big push.

Roman Reigns has everything to be a big next top star..

I bet WWE can't wait to get him tv appearances like Live with Mike and Kelly,etc.


He also doesn't need to be this great mic worker...just look at Randy Orton..

Most personality and presence? The only reason Reigns will be pushed more than Rollins or Ambrose is because he's bigger and looks like a action movie star. Saying he showed more personality than Ambrose is a completely ridiculous statement because all you need to do is go back and watch Shield promos. Who does most of the talking? Also his body language, three or four outstanding promos on the app or WWE.com show you how wrong you are. At his best there is nobody in the entire roster that can match Ambrose on charisma and personality. Call me a mark or whatever but that's very hard to argue against.

Now, @ Boxes-With-Gods, Mojo Rawley isn't going anywhere with that gimmick because it's lame as fuck and Shaun Ricker isn't even close to Roman's good looks. Reigns is currently the guy with the best chance of becoming the next poster boy for WWE.

Re: Can someone tell me the hype behind Reigns?

Under normal circumstances, his mic worker wouldn't be important. But he has the bad luck of being on a roster that has four or five guys with top face potential so he needs every advantage he can get.

For the record, I've been saying for a year that Big E. Langston is actually the type of guy you want to put on shows like Live with Kelly and Michael and Good Morning America etc. Reigns would be adequate in that role but Langston would light up screens and have people talking the next morning.

Re: Can someone tell me the hype behind Reigns?

I think reigns should be the one getting goldberg chants and ryback should be the one getting pushed.

Pretty sure that Mojo's gimmick is already doing well in NXT, is culturally relevant and is tailor made for WWE's target audience. All of this besides is his size, superior athleticism/strength and mic skills.

I'm also pretty sure that Shaun Ricker modeled at some point, has more experience than Reigns and is also charismatic and a superior talker.

I'm also sure that Langston has more presence, more charisma, is a better wrestler and talker and has a look that's popular and in demand right now (lovable black man, look at Raw's last guest host). He's also a former powerlifter which gives him something else to talk about, a small bit of cross over appeal and legitimacy outside of the wrestling world.

Oh and Ryback is pretty much better than Reigns at everything that they're selling Reigns on, can do a lot of different roles, has presence, has charisma and has had a ton of exposure already and is only 30 or 31. Steve Austin was buried in the mid card at 30 IIRC.

But you're right Reigns is definitely going to be the poster boy because SPEAR and ROAR.

This probably seems most logical. But I'm pretty sure if WWE wanted to push Ambrose or Rollins like they did Punk an DB, they would probably deliver same way.

If I come off as ignorant, I guess I'm sorry? But let me just put two and two together from how I see it.

Goldberg is pratically hated nonstop on here. He did a pretty good spear though, and he yelled random shit.

Reigns is praised nonstop on here recently. He does a pretty good spear and also yells random shit.

Goldberg didn't really do any amazing mic work. Reigns, unless someone can show me, from my personal viewpoint hasn't done anything amazing on the mic either.

Goldberg has a limited in ring moveset. Reigns also has a limited moveset [? Again. I definitely could be wrong. Going off what I've seen of the guy.]

He does have charisma, but then again, it seems all the hype is coming from the spear and the yelling afterwards. I just want to know where all the hype is coming from surronding the guy.
I think fans are just desperate for a new guy, and think he fits Vince's image. I hope he turns out to be a solid main eventer, but not at the expense of Rollins and Ambrose. And I see too many weak spots in him to crown him king already. He's great with the shield and they are very over. But he was put with them for a reason. If he's cut from them too soon he will implode.

"Denizens of duress, people of longing, poor forgotten children of despair! Fear not! JACK RISING is here! Savior of kings, champion of masses, the memory of the world, theee greatest wrastler you have nee-ver seen, has come down from his white steel trojan horse, to bring greatness to your lives! On the first day I say let there be wrastlin, on the 2nd day power slams, the 3rd day mighty elbow drops, the 4th day chair shots, the 5th day let the children dream, the men scream, and the women cream! the 6th day let there be thunderous applause, and on the 7th day I do not REST! Bloodied and broken, from the mat to the turnbuckle, to the fans in the stands I yell LET THERE BE MORE! Rise to it chump." (my promo)

Now Top
1 Bryan
2 Y2J
3 Punk

Then Top
1 Bret
2 Y2J
3 Savage
