You work in WWE as the creative team and are notified by your higher ups that they want one of the following to be pushed to a Cena-esque main event type of deal. The character would turn face and be the new face of WWE. However, they are stubborn with who they want and have given you four choices:

- David Otunga
- The Great Khali
- Eli Cottonwood
- Swagger's Soaring Eagle

The only things you can do is pick one of the above.
Apart from that, the only other thing you can do is quit. If you do not pick any of them, you're fired.

So, once you've picked one of those - detail how you'd push this person to be the new face of WWE.

I'd pick Swaggers Soaring eagle , who would later be revealed to be Tyler Black in an eagle costume.

He would turn on Swagger after a match and hit the phoenix splash (while in the eagle suit) on Swagger , then rip the helmet off of it to reveal himself.

Boy that was easy :)

You pick the Eagle, always, because the Eagle doesn't HAVE to suck. You can make anyone that character.

However, this question is kind of a pointless question, because you can't push someone into being the face of the company. Case in point, WWE is pushing Randy Orton way harder than John Cena but John Cena is still the man. The face of the company is gonna be whoever the fans select as the face, so unless the Eagle is John Cena, it isn't happening.

Let's assume they'd have to more or less keep their gimmicks. In essence, the eagle can never be revealed to be anybody.
In that case I push David Otunga , Wade Barrett & Justin Gabriel would train the living shit out of him in the ring Tuesdays through Sundays , for like 5+ hours a day. Hopefully their pro mentoring would get his ring skills up to a decent level and then hes already fine on the talking , I guess he would be ok then.

Cottonwood & Khali are just , plain stupid ideas for Cena-level competitors :eek:

Although it would be freakin hilarious for a guy in an eagle costume to wrestle and cut promos while still in the costume , I'd maybe just go that route too lol

I will push Otunga. No, i'm serious. Maybe it's not the right time if i push him at the moment, but i always feel he has potential, and he's obviously the most marketable one out of all the names you mentioned.

I think this is a bit of a pointless question.

Khali can't speak a word of English.

I don't think I have to justify not choosing the Eagle.

Eli Cottonwood looks like an overgrown baffoon who can't speak or wrestle, plus he will never (imagine Jericho saying this) EEEEEEVER, look like or have the appearance of a face.

So that leaves you with Otunga, who actually isn't a bad choice to give a face push, he's decent in-ring, he can work the mic, certainly has the physique that Vince seems to go for the last 5ish years, and he has easy options for creative to run with to turn him into a face, I mean, he's currently part of the biggest heel group we've seen in WWE for long time, plus he's currently wavering from Barrett and has shown sincerity to Cena in a promo.

2 easy choices, either Otunga with a cocky, hollywood yet big guy gimmick(it could work imo) and just have him work on his in ring skills with Cena, Orton, and Taker. or Khali as the monster he used to be except no title and say undefeated(like he should be anyways). Khali looks like a fucking beast, pushing him is easy as fuck.

I'd push Otunga off a bridge. I'd push Khali off a building. I'd push Cottonwood in front of a train. And I'd push Swagger Soaring Eagle into a fan with sharp pointy rusty steel blades.

I'd get Eli Cottonwood to grow a handlebar moustache and turn him into a porn star. Than i'd bring back the godfather (with the ho train) as his manager and from there it just runs itself to the top.

obviously david otunga. the guys has the look and the mic skills to become a major player if pushed right and given time. he is still young and a rookie. he has been pretty decent since being called up and the creative team is now giving him a storyline within the storyline and that becoming interesting as well because people want to know when otunga is going to turn on barrett or will barrett have otunga taken out first.
