Think of this, In that 4 year span of the AE look how much TOP level talent was created:

Austin
Rock
Taker (though you could argue he was already there before the AE)
HHH
Foley
Maybe Angle (tail end of it)
Maybe Jericho (tail end of it)

Now look at the last 4 years of Reigns:

They haven't even gotten Reigns over to that TOP talent level

That's a scary thought.

Also, think of this. The title in that era was defended quite a bit in front of sell-out crowds every night/week with insane viewership every week. On Raw, the Universal Title was defended on TV for the first time in YEARS, and that hour couldn't even hit 3 million viewers. And overall, the show drew just 3 million even the night after SS.

Heís basically been given the God push. On top of main eventing 4 WMs in a row, heís finished in the top 3 of the Royal Rumble (top 2 on 4 occasions) for 5 consecutive years. Thatís just asinine.

And he has now main evented Summerslam for the last two years. On top of all of his other ridiculous handed down accolades.

I never thought that it would seriously go on for this long.
I still donít consider him the face of the company. He still doesnít stand out whatsoever.

Yep. And you see all of those accolades on paper, then you watch his matches and hear his promos, and it's like...what? How? What is Vince seeing here? No one seems to see it or get it outside of him. The whole thing is just very, very strange.

It's going to be even longer I'm afraid there's no stopping the machine.

Lesnars been given the god push over the past 5 years. While reigns has been pushed extremely hard I don't understand his push at all. He destroys taker at mania 33 then spends the summer getting killed by strowman on raw and on ppv. Would be the equivalent of Austin coming out of mania 14 and Kane kicking his ass all summer long or Cena after mania 32 spending the next 4 months getting killed on TV and ppv by umaga.

It's baffling stuff really for a supposed top guy. He lost a feud to comedy Owens for UT, barely overcomes Bray Wyatt in a long feud in 2015 only via weapon who Cena had ran through a year earlier and then loses an ic title feud this year to the Miz. Not to forget he list clean as whistle to Bobby Lashley the ppv before Summerslam. Even his win against Lesnar finally after so many tries was basically Brock slipping on a banana peel.
