Now that both guys have had lengthy ME runs, who do you prefer?? Me personally, I don’t think either of them are FOTC material and should never be the top stars consistently. However I do think both guys are perfect for the midcard (IC title) and upper midcard (occasional ME run when needed). If Roman had been booked as an upper midcard guy all along he never would have gotten so much hate, he just doesn’t have the personality to be FOTC and neither does Seth, Seth is definitely equipped to be a top tier heel though.

My pick is Seth Rollins, he’s better in the ring for sure and he is better at promos. I didn’t like his last Face run, again he was put in a spot he didn’t belong in for too long but I loved his heel run and still enjoy his matches.

Yea, I prefer Seth Rollins.

He's the better all-around talent for me personally.

oh please - its rollins by a mile - rollins is a better worker - better promo - better face - you name it - the only thing reigns has is better booking - give rollins the same booking as reigns - and wwe would be in great shape -
Which is what got Rollins booed in the first place. I would say his booking has been better than Roman. Need I remind you who [unfortunately] got the clean win over Lesnar.

seth has everything needed to be the fotc in 2019 - its all the bookings fault - its bryan all over again - they will mess up with gargano - just you want -
LMAO and Roman doesn't? Rollins is not Main Event material.

Let me see..its hard to choose between two bad choices.. I would rather turn off the tv ?

Seriously though, both have similar weakness..both do a bunch of random spots, work the same match more or less every week, dont really get the art of selling, cant really talk fake stuff convincingly, dont show any intensity in their promos to sell a feud. So how is one better than the other?

They're both horrendous, but if Roman Reigns is a cauldron of scalding hot gorilla piss, then Seth Rollins is the same thing except the gorilla piss is actually room temperature. It's every bit as gross and disgusting and you shouldn't go near it, but if you do, it at least won't scar you for life.

I feel like Roman is the better, more rounded character for a WWE main eventer at this point. Rollins may have the edge on in ring ability, but Reigns for me, encapsulates the champion role better.

Rollins has been booked right out of being popular, along with his shitty personality traits becoming all too clear on social media. Reigns comes across as the more down to earth and media-firendly option.

On a side note, I am pretty happy with how Roman is received by most fans now. I guess it took a real life illness to stop the assholes in the WWE fan base to stop treating the guy like shit, in an attempt to get at the creative team. I never had an issue with Reigns himself. While I hated much of the booking he was subjected to, and most of the promos he was told to recite, for 3 years, I never failed to enjoy his matches.

Another month of mid card nonsense with Corbin, and I think the Universe will be ready for Reigns to step up to main event for the build up to Mania. I just hope he gets a high profile "dream" type match rather than a shot at The Fiend, because I can totally see WWE carrying on pretending that Wyatt is a heel, and trying to make everyone cheer Roman on as he becomes the first to pin The Fiend at Mania ... :(

Again, I'd hate the booking, but I have a feeling I'd enjoy the hell out of the match.

This is hard. I think both have great talent. If both were booked correctly then I can see both being superstars. However, character trumps workrate in my opinion. Seth is a great wrestler but his character is meh. Roman, while not the best wrestler in the world, has the character to transcend the business. Roman could be a mainstream star if booked correctly. If you look at Roman he looks like a bad ass wrestler while Seth looks like he might work at Starbucks. That and I think Roman is a better person in real life. Honestly writing this made me sad because I use to be a huge Seth fan but he's done a lot of things that can't be totally blamed on booking.

I don't think Reigns is that great, but i still prefer him over Rollins, at least Reigns is likeable as a person and he is kinda cool, there's nothing good about Rollins.

Seth is the better guy. Roman has more aura, but not as much as he should have given his booking for the past 5 years.

Roman Reigns.

The biggest problem with Reigns was how they booked him and since they haven't been shoving him down everyones throats as much this year he has been found to be much more likable by others.

Regardless of who is FOTC material or whatever (I find that to be silly for us to obsess over) the guy has a bigger presence than Rollins. He has also had some good matches too.

No...no they wouldn't. Lets be honest here.
