First time WWE viewers find Reigns, Dream and Lynch to be megastars

Roman Reigns (4.3)
Velveteen Dream (4.1)
Becky Lynch (3.9)
Bianca Belair (3.7)
Braun Strowman (3.5 average rating)

NXT champion Adam Cole's average score was only 2.1. There was more talk of his good looks than his ring work.

One of the pillars of WWE's women's division didn't do as well as one might expect. Charlotte Flair's glam had some people on board, but others said she sounded too robotic. The mixed reaction garnered her a flat 3.0.

Seth Rollins outdid both Flair and Cole with a 3.3. While most were impressed with his athletic ability, he didn't come off as larger-than-life enough for some.

Hanni, who sells specialty hoodies for kids, focused much of her comments on appearance and fashion. Rollins didn't do well there with her.

"He seems like a normal guy," she said.

That's not the sentiment WWE wants to hear about one of its main attractions.

A good number of other impressive athletes got decent reactions from the non-fans. Drew McIntyre, Ricochet, Kofi Kingston and AJ Styles all wowed to some degree. They didn't generate as much discussion or electricity as the five stars who scored highest.

There are more detailed comments about the top 5 scorers in the article for you geeks to get angry over so don't disappoint me

Re: First time WWE viewers find Reigns, Dream and Lynch to be megastars

I find none of them to be 'megastars'. The closest one would be Lynch, at least she was before being ruined.
Velveteen and especially Bianca being near the top is laughable. Braun should be higher than Roman imo, and Roman shouldn't even be 'top 5'.

Then again, none of these people are even remotely 'stars'. Pre-WM Becky would've been in consideration.

Re: First time WWE viewers find Reigns, Dream and Lynch to be megastars

This is actually quite the interesting study.

I might be wrong, but I think one factor not talked about would be the promos/matches shown to these people. I mean, I would show people highlights of Alexa on RAW not NXT, of Sasha in NXT and not RAW..ect

I think it would be a good assessment for some stars before they debut on TV, to try and see who would appeal the most. Dream and Bianca for example, I can totally get it, but when it comes to some WWE Main Roster rating it can get more biased depending on the content shown.

Also how is Braun's 3.5 rating considered average, if he's in the top 5?

Re: First time WWE viewers find Reigns, Dream and Lynch to be megastars

I'm not surprised at all.
Reigns looks like a star and has a genuine star presence about him. It's just his booking and presentation have been absolutely shite.
Becky Lynch looks great and has always connected with the WWE fans.
It doesn't take a genius to work out that Velveteen Dream and Bianca Belair have star quality written all over them and are loaded with potential.
And Strowman is like something out of a comic book.

Re: First time WWE viewers find Reigns, Dream and Lynch to be megastars

This is fascinating. In my mind I knew Dream is a star but there was always a second guess if casuals would "get him". I know this is a small sample size but it does bode well for his future.

I wish the writer would've listed what clips they showed people, a guy like Strowman has so many clips of him looking stupid that it could skew things, hell almost everybody in WWE has clips of them looking bad, imagine if he showed people "sufferin' succotash". The only way for me to know the results weren't jimmied is to see what they showed on everybody.

Re: First time WWE viewers find Reigns, Dream and Lynch to be megastars

This just looks like the most pushed, established (in terms of time given) characters that have RESPECTFUL pushes on each show. Of course people turning the channel would find Walter White the draw of Breaking Bad.




But I can't say I don't agree. Larger than life still sells baby!

No way they can ruin Dream, Right?
