WWE must establish Reigns as The Guy again

Reigns just lost to Shane. That's sad. The old Reigns would have superman punched both Drew and Shane into oblivion.

You asked for multiple people on top and you got it. But its not working and ratings are tanking.

Its time to establish Reigns as the singular FOTC again. Have him beat Brock clean for the WWE title and then face The Rock in the main event of Mania and beat him.

Thoughts?

Beating Reigns is the best thing Shane did since his return to the E.

At this point I feel like Reigns has been too tarnished by awful booking to ever be the singular top guy.

I do feel like he should be treated as more of a big deal than he is right now, but the problem is people will start booing the hell out of him the instant he goes after the world title, and cheer him if he turns heel.

Re: WWE must establish Reigns as The Guy again

I was looking forward to midcard Reigns because I thought we were going to see things like Reigns/Black, Reigns/Andrade, Reigns/Rusev and Reigns/Elias. It never occurred to me that his feud with Elias would last what, 12 seconds, and then he would move on to Shane and McIntyre, mainly because Shane isn't a wrestler and Drew is on fucking Raw!

Roman being in the main event as a face would be awful because there is only one heel in the main event in the entire company and Reigns has already faced him a billion times. I want some fresh matchups gotdamnit.

Re: WWE must establish Reigns as The Guy again

Reigns is fine, y'all have to stop taking losses out of context. Yeah he lost to Shane, but we all understand that it was because of interference.

But no he doesn't need to be reestablished, best bet is to use him like 2nd run HBK. He just had a 2nd run in with leukemia, you don't make him the guy with that baggage. Keep him as a guy that can use his status to gatekeep the main event.

Um you want to old man Cena him because of his leukemia? I don't know what the chances of his leukemia coming back again is but I feel like it's less than the chances of Bryan getting another concussion and they had no problem with putting him back in the main event.

I'm pretty sure every main eventer since the AE has missed big chunks of time with injuries multiple times, of course cancer is more serious than any of their injuries, I don't want to minimize that, but from a business standpoint losing a main eventer during a big push has always been a part WWE because how hard they work their guys.

I guess I just don't see pushing Reigns being that big of a risk, he went 11 years in remission the first time. Even if worst came to worst, and his leukemia came back during a championship reign, he could drop the title in a quick match, put over somebody big for squashing Reigns, and then quietly disappear to focus on his treatment.

It's well known Reigns is my guy, but if I'm Vince I wouldn't be going back to him as the 1a guy because it's too risky. Like there's already the general risks of wrestling and life in general, but knowing he has leukemia and just went in remission the 2nd time I'd not do it.

Not saying make him Mr. Jobber, but I think he should be a top guy who's not thee guy. Like I think Elias would've been served really well if they had let him beat Reigns. Similar to how Corbin can have them list of he retired Angle, Elias singing about how "Roman beat Leukemia but he couldn't beat me" could've really made him as a heel that has to be taken serious even if his songs are goofy.
