I absolutely think that if Kevin Owens hadn't gotten buried and misused, he would have been THE guy to replace John Cena and be the next FOTC. He is by far the best guy on the whole roster. Let's rewind to 2015 and 2016. The dude was white hot and was so over with the crowds, that he was getting cheered constantly even as a heel. He had that same connection to the fans that CM Punk did. Fans everywhere loved and respected him because he had that everyday guy appeal and made them think "This guy is one of us" KO is a total package. Great on the mic, a badass and intense look, amazing in the ring with anyone, and he fucking oozes charisma. He SHOULD have been the next big thing for WWE but then Fastlane 2017 happens and Goldberg destroys all of his momentum in 5 seconds. Owens should never have lost the Universal title that night. Owens rightfully deserved to main event Wrestlemania 33 and was robbed. I would've had Kevin Owens main event WM33 and RETAIN the title and keep him as Universal Champion all the way to WM34 and have him main event a second year in a row and maybe do Kevin Owens vs Roman Reigns instead of Lesnar/Reigns. It's a fucking travesty what actually happened and I think Kevin Owens is one of the most misused and underappreciated stars in WWE history.

Why would you want him to be the face of the company? That's a stupid position that should be outlawed. Look at AEW they have multiple stars. Singular stars is stupid. Putting your eggs in one basket is never good business

thank goodness he wasn't, isn't, and never will be
Oh yeah, thank God a guy who can talk, has charisma and engages the crowd isn't the top star. That's SO much worse than what we have now. :eyeroll

If you prefer Rollins then you deserve the shitty product you get.

I love KO but no chance my friend.

He's a great talent, but he's just not FOTC material and there is nothing wrong with that.

It's not that hard to see, FOTC needs to be the complete package. (or at least that's the ideal way, Cena was never the complete package but whatever)

Complete package means he needs to have the look, he needs to be able to put on great matches, he needs be charismatic and a good talker, and most importantly he needs to draw.

In the roster that they have right now, I can only think of three people who have the capabilities of being FOTC, Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, and Fin Balor. Maybe I'm missing someone but right now can't really think of anyone that comes close to these three as far as being the complete package.

At best he could have been that go-to “everyman” tweener kind of character but WWE only sees him as a goof... FOTC is seriously out of the question. He’s just not that guy

I agree with your premise OP but this is wildly inaccurate. KO was reasonably over but nowhere near 2011 CM Punk. Bryan is the only one who has captured that, or Styles/Cena early on in their feud.

That said - KO is the man and I'd be happy to see him be champion of everything.

There have been 'fat' fotc's before. Just wanted to say that.
Like who? None of Hulk, SCSA, Rock, Cena, Reigns were fat. Unless you're talking about different promotions, in which case that's meaningless because we're talking about WWE, Vince is not going to have a fat FOTC. He might let them be champ for a minute but that doesn't mean they are FOTC.

I was talking about different promotions. I was just referring to the notion that fotc should be in a certain mold, thats it. Many people made remarkable business for their companies with them bellies or not so common/pleasing proportions.

As a Top superstar yes I would push him but definitely not as the FOTC, He's a natural Heel if anything he'd be the HHH of this era the guy who works with THE GUY.

There is no telling if Owens holding the gold for so long wouldn't hurt his appeal either but be optimistic as much as you desire.

I love to know what these clowns on this forum would pick to be the top face. Balor, Rollins or maybe even Shinsuke?

Kevin Owens can talk and as a personality. Can't say that about many guys in the WWE now.

I went to a wrestling show with my brothers who aren’t wrestling fans and the first thing they noticed was how fat KO was and didn’t look like he should even be in the ring. He doesn’t look like a badass. Samoa Joe is a good example of a guy who looks and feels like a badass despite being overweight.

So because lil Tommy and Jimmy thought KO is not a badass they should stop pushing him? Hmmm

They’re not lil lol. All I’m saying is that they are the definition of casual fans and if you put a guy like Kevin Owens as your FOTC you look like a joke. They can push him but never to the top.
