Re: Backstage Talk About WWE Grooming Top New Guy

I'm slightly shocked by the amount of support for A-Ry in this thread, personally I see little potential in him, he's just a stereotypical developmental guy, the kind that WWE plough resources into but rarely yield any results (Cena and possibly Batista being the exceptions to the rule).
Punk can never be the 'top' guy because he is so much more comfortable as a heel. As a face Bryan could be an underdog success story like Eddie Guerrero, but I think that would be his limit.
I actually have no idea who can fill the role, and it is often the case that the 'top spot' is pretty unpredictable. I doubt very much that anybody would have picked The Ringmaster or Rocky Maivia to have reached the levels they did.
Rollins maybe? Ticks a lot of the boxes. Pac would certainly get a lot of attention with his in-ring style but is he 'too small'? Lot of good things being said about Adam Mercer, but can he live up to the hype? On the current roster? I am struggling, there are a lot of guys who fit the mould much better as a heel that I can't imagine them in a 'top face' role (Ziggler, Rhodes, Sandow for example).

Does there have to be a top guy??? I'd rather have ten bars of gold than one diamond.

This x 10. In the Attitude Era there were a lot of aces floating around other than Steve Austin. The trick is not to put all of your fucking eggs in one basket.

most likely ziggler, and he would be a good fit.

Both of these.

Relying on one guy is ridiculous, if anything happens to that one guy then what? Making one guy the center of the universe is boring. Which is why so many people have turned on Cena...not everyone likes the guy and you can't force people into liking him. Even some of his fans have turned on him. I'm a Punk fan and I was getting sick of him and his direction until he joined Heyman, that renewed my interest, I can't see anyone having their interest renewed in 'same 'ol shit' Cena right now.

...or until the public tires of him.
The chorus of boo's he gets in his mixed reactions, isn't because he's controversial it's because he's gotten stale. They need to build a core of stars to make things work...not just one that people will get sick and tired of and turn on.

Re: Backstage Talk About WWE Grooming Top New Guy

lol Sheamus can't be the next top guy. By the time he even gets to Cena status of overness, he'll be at the age where they will have to find another top guy.

Fan of Daniel Bryan,Seth Rollins,Dean Ambrose,CM Punk,Brock Lesnar,Antonio Cesaro,Randy Orton, Kazuchika Okada,Shinsuke Nakamura,and Minoru Suzuki

Re: Backstage Talk About WWE Grooming Top New Guy

Dolph Ziggler. He has it ALL.

If they introduce Ambrose, they should give him a joker-gimmick (without makeup, just the crazy chaos ideas, terrorizing the wwe and ceo, coo etc. etc).
