Reigns has the most talent and the most mainstream appeal of the three. Give him a good story and he'll be huge.

They did give him a good story, they gave him the PERFECT story, he was supposed to beat the unbeatable monster who broke the Streak, and he utterly failed. That's a fail proof storyline and he still failed.

Main stream appeal, lol. He ain't the fucking Rock. If he can't even get people who LIKE this shit to cheer him, how's he gonna get people who don't?

This is completely disconnected from everything reality is demonstrating on the subject.

Re: At this point in their careers, who Shield member has the potential to be the most over?

Considering Ambrose and Reigns all involved have undergone face turns, Ambrose has had the most successful face run in my view. His crowd reactions at MITB earlier this year was immense. His run with the title was solid. However, he still needs to transcend his character and become that psychotic maniac like Heath Ledger's joker. He showed glimpses of this when he was Jon Moxley.

However, I'd say Reigns has the most 'potential' at this point. As a killer 'I don't care' attitude', he could truly become a star as a tweener. Not a heel.

Why? WWE need a babyface but hypothetically, the silent Samoan killer who decimates his prey sounds like a sound business model to WWE and the audience.

Stop over-analyzing the product. WWE is a freak show with more positives than negatives. Sit back and enjoy the ride.

To close to call between Rollins and Ambrose because they're so different, the only obvious answer is not reigns, he's spoiled goods.

Heel Roman, easily. Both Dean and Seth have had the luxury of performing multiple roles since the split, while Reigns has been stuck as a cookie cutter babyface.

You mean like an unstoppable bad ass story? Or an underdog story? Or a patriotic American story? Or a man of the people story? Or an anti authority story?

Yeah! You're right one of those might work......

lol At Reigns' ridiculous tug of war with Lesnar being anything near to a perfect story.


That match had the worst fucking build up in history, GTFO.

Actually, no. Shawn Michaels vs Triple H vs John Cena from Survivor Series 2009 had the worst build up in history.

Excuses, excuses, excuses to justify these continual failures. Any other main eventer on that roster would've gotten over in that match. How many failures before it's his fault? It's always somebody else, yet countless main eventers have been popular despite bad booking.
