What differentiates him from others is his flat out bad-ass looks,and amazing intensity.

...I still don't see how Goldberg didn't have the monster look either.

Maybe I missed the reasoning, but I went out to go shopping. It still continues to be the "he looks like a bad ass". Well yeah, but like I said. Goldberg does.

The one thing I can definitely agree on is just something with his character that can excite people, and that he does have potentinal to improve. I can definitely agree with those two.

Personally, I would say Big E has that more, but I can easily be proven wrong by crowd reaction. I think the reason Big E doesn't get the reaction is because his finisher and signature is complete ass, but whatever.

The man just oozes charisma and has the look. One of the few people that just catches the attention of the audience. Don't get me wrong Rollins and Ambrose are great, and better in the ring, but Reigns has that 'it' factor.

People are sheep, I guess. Last year nobody gave a damn about Roman Reigns, It was all about Dean Ambrose. Now WWE is starting to push him, and all of a sudden everybody loves him.

I don't think the Sheffield one is worth much, mostly due to him having to affect a southern accent, which is passable, but it's an example of him doing something...different.


Obviously this last one is a promo package made to make him look good but nevertheless, his personality is present in the way he wrestles, the mannerisms you get from the video and the way he interacts with the crowd towards the end. He never really says one word and it's more interesting than Reigns has been. I think he shouts "I....AM....".

I mean, either way, Reigns is the least interesting, so far, of WWE's bigger guys.
I haven't skipped over anything he's done. To be honest, Ryback has shown some character since turning heel, and under the Skip Sheffield gimmick, but when he had his "Feed Me more" face push in 2012/2013, I couldn't detect a single character trait. I just saw him as this buff guy who was booked as unstoppable for a short period of time. Reigns has shown some personality throughout his run with the Shield, with his heel promos, and some of his mannerisms, and details of how he's communicated with other members of the Shield. He's managed to come of as a badass. That's enough, personality wise. His line in the first Shield Interview, "If I have something to say, I'll say it." highlights this persona. Ryback reminded me of a machine, as a face. As a heel, he's started to show some character traits, but Reigns has had a distinct persona since debuting on the Main Roster.

The look, intensity, the lineage, ever improving.

But I think people are forgetting how important Rollins and Ambrose are gonna be in the future, Ambrose is gonna be one of the best heels in years I believe and Rollins can play both his been awesome as a badass heel.

Well that was his gimmick. He was supposed to be a Terminator. See, you kinda validate the idea that Ryback is effective with pretty much every character he's given. He didn't show a of of personality because, well, he was supposed to be a T-1000 or something. And even then, just everything from the way he spoke, shouted, grimaced, scanned, gave away bits of personality. The way he behaved in the ring with his opponents told you he had a clear disdain for the weak. I don't think Reigns is that good with his character yet, if you can say he has one.

All I know is that Ryback has proven his range. I don't know how long Reigns can go as this generic badass type character without the crowd getting tired of it. We already have/have had a Randy Orton.

I'll have to agree to disagree on this.

Ambrose hasn't clicked with me yet, and I don't think he has clicked with the general audience yet. The only time I have cared more about Ambrose than Reigns and Rollins is when he faced Taker, other than that Reigns and Rollins have looked superior.
