Re: Can we just agree that Roman Reigns is the best contender for being the next FOTC?

We are passed the days of having one face of the company these recent years. Even Cena said it in his interview there is not one anymore. There are bunch of amazing talent on the roster. Right now you have a few dudes and females that have been on the top for a few years. Like Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, Brock Lesnar, Charlotte Flair and now Becky Lynch in their division. We don't need one guy, we what have now is a few bunch that can help get the company to what it needs to be but the booking sucks.

Roman and the Usos would be a nice he faction. As for Roman FOC, it's interesting because lately it seems like Roman has not even been into his own matches he seems to have lost his enthusiasm and I don't blame him but as far as other people you never know maybe Kevin Owens slides up the charts he doesn't have really the look but he has the my skills and that might get him over

I think to add to what I said earlier Seth Rollins has a nice look and he's pretty good in the ring but his mic skills are bad and not only that but he's put in situations that are very cringe-worthy so that devalues him as a talent I feel lastly he should probably just do less talking and just more in ring action. You have another guy like Ricochet who is pretty much like Seth Rollins in terms of the looks and the in ring but horrible on the mic

The next FOTC should be Velveteen Dream.

End thread.

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.
The Rock was essentially a big enough star to be considered one of the many "faces" of the company. You had stars like HBK, Bret Hart, Jericho, Kane, Angle, Mankind, Taker, Triple H, etc who could all be interchanged in the main event. In Hogan's time, you had Steamboat, Savage, Piper, Andre, etc who could all be looked at as top guys. Even the women's division through time has had worthy talent that you could look at and see being interchangeable (Victoria, Lita, Molly Holly, Sable, Trish, Jazz, etc) Now it's all about Charlotte and only recently, Becky.

Yes, Rock/Austin/Hogan were pushed harder than the aforementioned talent, but at the same time, you could look at all those guys as worthy superstars. As talent that could take over if someone was injured for example. If you put all your eggs in one basket, you end up with the current product, where no one matters and everyone looks like a geek. You can't put all your respurces in one guy and have him main event 4 Manias in a row. Now look where we are, there isn't ONE guy who can be taken seriously.

No, he wasn't.

That would be CM Punk (which Triple HGH squashed), and then Daniel Bryan (he got injured, and then Vince screwed it up). Chris Jericho was the most over guy in 2016, and the way they jobbed him out or made him look as less credible as possible was just stupid.

You only go with a guy as face of the company when they're over and red hot. Austin and Rock were insanely over.....Cena and Batista was insanely over......Roman was a forced push, much like Lex Luger and Diesel, but Vince had the sense to not run with those guys for 4+ years

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.

???

Rock was the face of the company from 2000 until he left in 2002. 2000 was the biggest year they ever had and Austin wasn't even there. I'm not trying to make this a Rock vs Austin thread, but what you say is not accurate.
