All face champions for such an extended period of time and yet this was the worst period both financially and creatively for WWF.
It has nothing to do with face/heels being champions.
Its all upto the fans on who they accept as a babyface. You can't just force someone in that role and expect people to accept them like they're doing with Reigns.

Re: For those calling for Roman Reigns to turn heel....

Reigns has to get better as a performer period. Turning heel doesn't change that, wearing a suit doesn't make him a character let alone a good one. If that truly makes a character or a performer good because they wear a suit and or act "cocky", then thats setting the bar very low for heels. Reigns need to improve in many areas , some more than others but turning heel doesn't automatically make his downfalls go away. He's been given everything to him on a silver platter which means he has very little reason to improve. Why does turning heel all of the sudden give him a reason? He's going to main event 2 back to back Mania's with less than 3 years as a singles wrestler...that's insane.

Re: For those calling for Roman Reigns to turn heel....

I've got 2 main reasons I want him to turn Heel

1) The crowd have rejected him - the next face of the company is having to be kept off TV in the build up to his crowning title win because they are worried about the reaction he is going to get. The situation is just about impossible to salvage to have him go ahead as a face.

2) He is much better suited to playing a heel, we have seen glimpses of the cocky/above you persona that Reigns would play as a heel and it just seems so much more natural for him, add into this he would be playing the hand picked guy which again feeds into reality and all the best storylines/gimmicks have a basis in reality.

Really interesting stats and you're right WWE have always been a face centred company, the issue is they are pushing ahead with a guy who isn't ready for that spot, who the fans reject at every opportunity and who would benefit both in the short run and more importantly in the long run going heel. Let him go heel and organically turn face over the next few years as fans get behind him
