Roman was never on top to anyone who has a brain. That's not a dig at you by the way OP.

There's a difference between a top guy and a forced failure.

Re: Roman has been on top longer than Stone Cold Steve Austin was

Roman is the most unpushed pushed FOTC ever. Truly the most baffling booking I've ever seen for a so-called "top" guy. The guy's title reigns are shorter than the #3 or #4 guys in the company...

This. Bork took over as FOTC when Cena left. Vince pays him the most and plans everything based on when he feels like showing up.

Roman is plan B and nothing more.

yeah maybe on top was the wrong word, but he has been main eventing for longer than SCSA

Reigns has been a world champion for what like a few months total? Dude isn't on top. Bork is. Reigns wish Vince cared even 10% as much about him as he does Borky.

He might be on top longer than Stone Cold Steve Austin, but he certainly isn't above him.

There's a reason for that, Vince had to constantly work around live audiences completely rejecting him to the point where it made the company look stupid on TV, and you'd think that would be a sign to them that maybe they were going about it wrong...

Cena did get rejected by a large portion of the audience but was at one point the most over and cheered guy in the company, and there was always enough (except for a few special circumstances) Cena support from live crowds to not make the WWE look stupid.

What do you mean unpushed? Just because he isn't holding the title doesn't mean he is not on top. He has been main eventing WM for the past I don't remember how many Wrestlemania and only prevented to hold the title because of negative fan responses and is being shoved down our throats by Vince week after week. Heck they even had to resort to that disgusting cancer segment to buy him some time for his movie(hiatus my arse) as well as to generate some goodwill from the audience. If this isn't pushing then I don't know what is.
