By no means am I a Roman fan, I actually despised him during the past few years, but let’s face it, disregarding future signings, at this moment, he’s clearly the best we’ve got out of all the contenders for this spot.

Other contenders:

Dean Ambrose: left WWE and dare I say has basically become the face of pro wrestling as a whole at this moment, lol

Seth Rollins: I thought would be a good choice, but he clearly lacks charisma and apparently needs to be carried by others ie Ambrose, Reigns, J&J, The Authority, Becky Lynch.

AJ Styles: has everything but doesn’t have long left in his career.

Finn Balor: I don’t see it

Kevin Owens: has potential but I can’t see him as being the top guy for long periods.

Samoa Joe: will likely retire soon

Kofi Kingston: not really, upper midcarder at most.

Bray Wyatt: like KO, I can’t see him being the face. Also his character is not the type to be overexposed as I find him to be more of a mystique or a special attraction guy (kinda like taker in his good days”

Braun: has possibility, but WWE don’t seem very high in him. He’s also got a limited moveset which shouldn’t be overexposed

Daniel Bryan: Vince will never push a somebody for FOTC who’s under 5’11

Sami Zayn: nope, he’s a wrestler and not a sports entertainer.

Drew McIntyre: possibly, I don’t know how he is as a babyface. tbh I’m not being racist or anything, but I just don’t see Vince wanting a guy who doesn’t sound American to be the FOTC.

Bobby Lashley: nope, he’s a mess.

Dolph Ziggler: his ship has sailed

Randy Orton: his time’s gone, I won’t say he’s close to retiring, but I think he’s pretty complacent with his current role as the dude who randomly comes out and RKOs guys, makes he fans pop and seems to put new talent over.

Brock Lesnar: too old and never there.

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?

No. Even older guys like Randy Orton and Samoa Joe are preferable. You don't need more than a solid 2 or 3 years out of a FOTC. Both guys have all that left in the tank.

Dean Ambrose, Bray Wyatt, Finn Balor and Braun ALL better performers and who were more over, with LESS of a push, at various points in their careers

The ONLY reason Roman was FOTC is his face

Absolutely!

As much as snarks here don’t like it, Roman is the best option right now.

He isn’t as good as say Cena or Rock, but it’s 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

Blissed Phenomenon 07-10-2019 04:07 PM

Not anymore.

How long did it take Hogan,Austin,Rock,Cena to be accepted either by fanfare or business standards(drawing power)?

Roman doesn't have it.

How about we kill the whole FOTC idea and book everyone like they matter? Even Austin/Rock/Hogan had stars in the upper card that they could be equals to.

Everything doesn't always have to be about 1 fuckin guy.

I think Roman is in the same spot with the fans as Kofi or Bryan was with the WWE: he is being held back by them in favor for much worse talents .Wish he could turn heel and have a journey of his own where he wins the big one in WM despite the fans boing him and embracing their hate

I don't think there's that specific guy on the roster but if you're asking who the closest is I do agree it's probably him

Re: Can we just agree that Roman Reigns is the best contender for being the next FOTC?
 
Roman reigns should be the shining example as to why there should never be just ONE guy. What if said guy get s sick or injured? What if the fans don't accept the guy?

There's a reason for the phrase "dont put all your eggs on one basket"
