He is probably the closest thing they have right now, if they want to try with him...again...

Of course, the roster is so micro-managed now we don't know if there is a Ringmaster in the pack able to turn into an SCSA..

We can't.

He isnít as good as say Cena or Rock, but itís the best talent currently available and feels like a real main eventer.

He has the look of a guy who can beat anyone but at the same time not the biggest guy out there so he can still be underdog vs some opponents like Lesnar or Strowman.

If they push KO as the anti authority guy and Roman as straightforward babyface, I think KO vs Roman at WM for the title could be money feud
The only reason he "feels" like a main eventer is because he was shoved into the main event of almost every show for years. If they did that same thing with more talented guys like Wyatt, Balor, Nakamura, Zayn, Styles, Black, Andrade, Cesaro, Ricochet, Strowman, Joe, Elias etc. etc. etc. they would feel like main eventers too.

Roman is solid. But he doesn't and hasn't done anything that people want to tune in to see. Nobody tunes in to see a Roman Reigns match, even though they are good they aren't usually great and he relies on the same moves. Nobody tunes in to see a Roman Reigns promo because he is mediocre at that too. The guy has no appeal. Add all that into the fact that he has literally been doing the same thing for 5 years now, he hasn't changed his song, or his look, or his moves or ANYTHING and there is just nothing must see about Roman Reigns. Now if they actually decide to grow some balls and do something different with him and change up his character or look or something, then maybe I'd be interested. Then again, who knows if he even has the charisma to pull of anything else other than what he has been doing for 5 years.

Roman's fine as a top star, but he isn't a FOTC and I don't think anybody in the company really can be given the state of the company itself. Could he have been? Maybe, you could have with him, Seth, Becky, and others. But their booking of everybody has rendered them without any wrestler who feels that big.

I would say that the best course of action would be to book a core of wrestler all as top stars so you can always rotate them around in case of injury, but WWE isn't doing this clearly.

Fuck that Talentless Dickhead.

But seriously the best thing to do with Roman is to have him challenge Kofi at Summerslam for the WWE Championship. Kofi's support is trending downward. By putting him against Reigns the fans will rally behind Kofi. They'll be "outraged" that Reigns is threatening his spot. WWE can use the passion of the fans to help elevate Kofi.

The other option is getting Reigns involved in Seth's booking because lord knows "The Man's Man" needs it

Although there is some truth in your words , let’s face it- does anyone tune in to see a KO match? Or Kofi match? Or Rollins? I don’t see anyone who doesn’t plan watching the show in general to specifically tune in just to watch Rollins or Kingston perform- I know for sure I don’t and I’m not the only one.

There isn’t anyone currently on any rooster that is “must see” and that’s not Roman’s falth.

Most wrestlers had their chance to shine and make people care and yet they all failed .

The most anyone in the current rooster have achieved was to be the Fotm fan favorite like Kofi and as soon as he won the big one people stopped caring all that much about him.

As I said- Roman May not be an all time great but still is the best they have . I would love to be proven wrong but so far after Roman was toned down no one feels like a big deal

Reply of the year. If you treat 48/50th of your roster like you don't give one shit about them.. how do you expect the fans to?

What say you?

A regular Lou Thesz or Frank Gotch. The dudes a pure sports entertainer.

So as you can see, I think Reigns is the best option: He’s big, has a maineventer’s charisma, can handle public interviews well, has an American accent lol, has a wrestling bloodline, can move good, seems to be a genuine nice guy (he’s been through a lot of hate and still comes out with a smile and motivation).

What do you guys think?
You left out numerous guys especially ricochet, black, dudes in development like Dream, Riddle, Cole.

Why not include women? I think Charlotte would be just as good of option as Reigns and she carries herself more like a star on and off screen.

Let's back up a bit describe what WWE the company looks like with Reigns as FOTC, not talking 2015-18 where he was playing Cena role and nothing changed..instead one where entire company from vision to marketing to tv direction changes to encapsulate Reigns character. For me Reigns is dark, brooding, rarely talks so company would be quite different from the current bright, sponsor family friendly one we have today built in image of Cena.

Who were equal of Hogan (84-91) or Austin (98-01)?

Rock was never FOTC

And yes there were people who mainevented but until you establish your top general you can't determine his or her ranking officers underneath.

WWE will continue throwing shit at the wall hoping something sticks (like TNA did for decade+) if they don't soon build around someone.

Ambrose has that potential but too bad he left the company. I'm a Roman Reigns fan but to be a fotc you need that magnetic personality in order to that guy which Roman lacks. Roman is just like Taker who has every tools except that magnetic personality that Hogan, Austin, Rock and Cena have. In terms of personality, Punk and Ambrose were close.
