Look at how long it took Vince pushing Orton his whole career for people to finally start caring about him, because for the longest time, he was just a great athlete with an amazing look cutting bland predictable promos. This is Roman Reigns' future unless he learns a personality. This is why people say Ambrose will go the farthest. He already has size on him being 6'4 which is taller than Reigns, is a great in ring storyteller, and is the most in tune with his character than anyone else in developmental.

Reigns may have the chiseled pretty boy look and athletic genetics, but that's all he excels at, this point in his career.

Here's the best analogy of Reigns currently. He's a Samoan version of Drew McIntyre back when he was the Chosen One with more limited wrestling skills.
Thats why I said potential. If he gets it together his ceiling is higher than Ambrose & Rollins simply because he has the more marketable look. He probably never be the most talented guy but if his ring work get a little better and he can work the mic he'll be fine. They could even get him a manager. If WWE gets behind him, he can be successful. I think they will, I believe he'll surprise people.

Somebody made the comparison early but he reminds me of Batista also. Batista was far from the most talented guy when he got pushed. He had the look and presence, WWE protected him and let him develop a little while and even then he didn't get good on the mic until later in his career. Ryback is another guy far from the most talented but he's over & getting a push. The most talented guys don't always get pushed.

Another difference between McIntyre & Reigns is that Drew fucked up his own push. As long as Reigns stays out of trouble he should be fine.

Who is Johnny Curtis? Nobody...just the future of WWE!

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

All three have tremendous potential actually. Ambrose will probably rise to the top quicker than Reigns, who still needs a lot of work in the ring and on the mic.

Agreed, remember this?

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

They don't look really intimidating to me. Ambrose and Rollins seem small. Reigns looked weak against Kane. Maybe it's supposed to be that way.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

Ambrose sounds like a star. Reigns looks like a star. Rollins is just there.
They seem weak tho. All they do is lil punches and they have to help Reigns lift guys for powerbomb when cena or ryback can do it on their own.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

I'm confident these three can make it on their own without Punk & Heyman. Just add Maddox to the mix and maybe fifth guy that is already in the roster but needs a boost but has been a victim of injustice. Jack Swagger or Ted DiBiase perphaps?
