Ha. Reigns. That's rich. Might as well consider Luger and Sid greats.

It's gonna be hard for anyone because they don't push any person well. I'm sure people will probably consider Rollins great, probably Styles, probably Owens in a Jericho type vein.

I have a feeling that talents like:

- AJ Styles
- Seth Rollins
- The Miz
- Braun Strowman
- Kevin Owens
- Sami Zayn
- Cesaro
- Dean Ambrose
- Neville
- Charlotte Flair
- Alexa Bliss
- Becky Lynch

may be fondly looked back as greats by fans 20 years from now.

Roman Reigns - kayfabe wise probably will be in a year or so. In ring wise he just needs to improve a bit, he is great but he still isn't Bret Hart or HBK good. I'm sure he will get there though.

AJ Styles - Probably already is (outside wwe), but if he has more 5 years in WWE at this level he will be a lock.

So what are your opinions? Discuss
Most of them will be historical antecdotes. In twenty years there will not be an independent WWE. It will exist as a subsidiary of a larger corporation such as Disney, Time Warner, or ESPN. What "wrestling" that is produced will be heavily post-produced, with a considerable amount of CGI to turn a simulated combat sport into fantasy combat.

Roman Reigns will be remembered as the last "Face of the WWE" in the promotion's current form. He, John Cena, Brock Lesnar, and Randy Orton will be considered Legends and will continue to "compete" in the 2037 version of WWE either as CGI avatars or as rebooted characters. Corporate consolidation breeds conservatism, and rebooting movies, characters, and storylines will find solid ground in the new WWE. Charlotte Flair and Rosemary (if she eventually joins) will be the female wrestlers that are considered Legends.

Almost everyone else will be footnotes, and will have as much relevance in 2037 as the 1970s mid-card of the WWWF does today.

AJ and Charlotte are locks. The Revival has a good chance if Vince doesn't sabotage them.

Re: From the current roster who will be seen as great one 20 years from now?

I believe "subjective" history will be far more kind to Cena as time passes and retrospect sinks in. Obviously, the man has had an all-time WWE career in terms of objective measures. Jericho already has the trifecta of an at worst very strong subjective resume, a great objective resume and very strong respect from his peers with longevity to boot. Even Jericho's detractors I think would have a hard time denying that Y2J has had a great career for a wrestler. Brock Lesnar will be remembered for one of the strongest runs in kayfabe history and should be remembered as one of the greatest packages of in-ring attributes this business has seen, at his best a man rivaled by very few and a guy who if he never left could've been in the center of conversation for best match catologue in North America (yes I am serious). Goldust already has carved a little slice of history. Charlotte is a lock on the female side. The subjective merits of Orton will forever rage on, but he has so much respect from greats that I could see Orton holding a nice spot.

In terms of potential for greatness: Seth Rollins really sticks out to me. Already has a remarkably consistent Shield run under his belt, should be remembered as one of the most well-conditioned wrestlers we have ever seen and with as young as he is, there is plenty of time for Seth to build on his "resume'" AJ Styles will probably have a very similar view as baseball has for Ichiro Suzuki albeit AJ won't be in WWE for 15 years methinks. If WWE ever gets Rusev going before his career is
not salvageable LOOK OUT

I know I'll look back and think of Owens, Wyatt, and Ambrose as great ones. Especially when Ambrose gets his well deserved heel turn where he can shine.
