Kofi is having his thing at the moment, once a heel becomes WWE Champion then Roman will step up to challenge for it again. I'm kinda just waiting for the year long Cena-like WWE Championship reign for Roman. I just feel like it's inevitable.
Batista / Trish Stratus / Chris Jericho / Kurt Angle / Gail Kim / CM Punk / Christian
Seth Rollins / AJ Styles / Cesaro / The Revival / Drew McIntyre / EC3
Finn Balor / Andrade / Randy Orton / Buddy Murphy / Jinder Mahal
No. Eventually Shane (or even Elias with Shane/McIntyre’s help) will probably win the title off of Kofi, then Roman will conquer them all at the PPV after. That’s probably why they keep making Miz lose to them: to make the BITW and duo look strong which in turn makes Roman look really strong when he defeats them (in Vince’s words).
Reigns has been champion for like 3 months in the past 3 years.
6 months in total days of holding the title in his career
Is he really shoved down our throats as much as some complain?
This point is well intentioned but totally stupid and I think you know that. He was aggressively shoved at us as THE GUY, and when the audience made it clear they didn't want to be force fed Vince said "fuck you" and did it harder. Holding the belt is not an accurate indicator of being shoved down your throat or not. Brock held the title for literally years but we didn't see him often.
