That is his time as champion...compare that to how many PPV main events and TV time he got compared to the 96.5% WHILE THEY WERE CHAMPION (especially those not named Lesnar). Yes, he did not hold the belt long, but he was in the last match more times and probably more that all of the champions combined. He Main Evented Wrestlemania 33, but was not the champion and a title was not at stake (who cares if it was against Undertaker because it was clearly not Taker's last match though we were led to believe it was)!Myth.This excuse is just so tired. Someone doesn't have to have the title constantly to be the main focus of everything they do.In the last 3 years, Roman has held the title for less than 3 months.
This is normal Roman booking - it's simply the fans who have changed the way they view him.
Roman is given far more than practically everyone else on the roster combined. Constantly. People are sick of it. He is not interesting enough to get the attention that he does. There are people that can barely get on TV yet Roman is on most episodes of RAW and SD every single week. And before anyone says "b-b-b-but Kofi has been on both shows too", I am aware he is not the only one, but people like Kofi haven't been shoved down the audiences throat incessantly for the last 5-6 years!
Imagine a pie graph for the past 3.5 years:
- 84 months to fill for 2 world champions
- 3 to Roman
= That’s 3.5% of the pie allocated to Roman.
96.5% of the time, you’ve got talents other than Roman holding the gold.
96.5% of the time you’re looking at someone else hold the belt.
His push has completely been exaggerated in the shadow of the Super Cena days.
CM Punk's reign as WWE Champion was for over 400 days (more than a year) and a few people held the World Heavyweight Championship in that period. Whomever held the WHC was never in the main event and with only 1 or 2 exceptions (one of them being because Cena was hurt and couldn't do the match with Punk), Punk only main evented as champion when he fought Cena or Rock. All other times, Cena had the main event match even though no title was involved and HHH vs. Lesnar at Summerslam had one of the ME's.
