Re: Backstage Talk About WWE Grooming Top New Guy

I remember reading not so long ago that Tyler Black or Seth Rollins as he is now known was the man WWE were going to groom as the next top babyface as they saw a lot of Jeff Hardy in him which i personally think is way off as Tyler Black is nothing like Jeff Hardy in any way other than having long hair. The thing is at 35 years old and still being the biggest draw, money maker and star in WWE some seven and half years later from his original push John Cena isn't going anywhere for another four or five years and he has shown he can carry WWE single handedly when needed.

So often i think John Cena never gets the credit he deserves in being top guy because he is top guy in an era where WWE is devoid of genuine star power outside of The Undertaker and Triple H who are part time at best yet he continues to make HUGE money for WWE and carry the company. Down in FCW two potential great babyfaces are Seth Rollins and Richie Steamboat but then i didn't see The Ringmaster, Shawn Michaels of The Rockers, Rocky Maivia, the John Cena who debuted against Kurt Angle or Hunter Hearst Helmsley ever being way they all are either so with the right storyline or promo anyone could have a breakout moment and become the top babyface.

Re: Backstage Talk About WWE Grooming Top New Guy

Fella will never be more over than Punk. Fella could bury Punk two months straight and Punk will still be more over. It's pretty obvious that he is there handpicked guy. The fans are going to turn on him the same way they turned on Cena.

They should always be looking to make the new top guy.

Re: Backstage Talk About WWE Grooming Top New Guy

Ryback is out Vince has never used a "monster" as the top guy and probably won't Warrior came the closes but even then Hogan was still the top guy. If it's a big muscular guy they will be more Cena/Hogan than Warrior.


I'd also say look to developmental. There are guys down there who have that look that Vince loves.


Of the current roster you're looking for crossover appeal as the top guy so look to people like Miz, Otunga, Drew Mcintyre and those types as the type Vince would us in that top position.

There was a report not too long ago that said Vince only see Rollins as a prelim guy. TBH, unless he develops charisma and mic skills, the best he could wish for is a Morrison/Kofi/Truth spot.

we need someone with the ability like cena to talk like a soldier and inspire us. with a larger than life name. and a worked out but not overly jacked body. cena was a hero to me 6 years ago when i was a somewhat teenager. he taught me what was hustle, loyalty, respect. he gave me a reason to fight for myself and my country. he talked with charisma that made people listen, believe and respect. he was a person that i would walk out with as my big brother. No one in the company fits that as of now. Cm punk is quite close.
