Of the available talent, Dean Ambrose would be the best pick right now, with Kevin Owens being the best choice for heel rival, a la Randy Orton. With a little more time I think they could build Big Cass and Braun Strowman into something longterm. They're green, but they have potential.

The problem is that the face of the company has to be a guy that's going to stick around for a decade plus, so most of the established, really talented guys are too old.

The problem with reigns is he don't have the energy like hogan, the rock, austin did, he always looks a little awkward, same goes for Ambrose and Seth, I guess the new age wrestlers are all videogame playing dweebs.

Could have worked if creative had even tried with his Babyface run. It's been booked so poorly that people unironically want him to go back to being a chickenshit heel. He's got charisma, but not enough to overcome WWEs autistic hyper scripting

Only feasible option of the 3. He has the luxury of being an indie guy that Vince doesn't seethe at. His merch does well so that doesn't hurt. If the machine actually got behind him he could be a classic "hero who struggles with their dark side"

Seth and Finn are just as much of a charisma vacuum as Roman. And both are too small to really be the face of the company. Finn is also too old.

Who else is there? AJ? Too old. Owens? Too fat. Bray? Too bad and too fat. Sami? Muslim and not jacked enough, also not a "cool" guy.
Randy? Too old and too boring. Dean? Too ugly and too boring.

And you can go through everybody on the roster like that.

Roman doesn't fit the the criteria either (obviously), but they also have no one else.
>>
>>2880881

Then name ONE, you fucking dimwit. And only because they pushed Roman that doesn't mean no one else could ever get over, if he actually is good enough.

He has a low body fat percentage. That's it. He's scrawny as fuck.

>>2880899
He's the Glass Joe of wrestling. There's no way he'll last 15 years. His body can't even handle the tame WWE style of wrestling.
>>
>>2880899
>He has another 15 years
Haha what. That would be true if he were more solidly built. 5 years is more likely, maybe 7 years if he's really lucky. We're talking at a "high" level quality of wrestling (even though his wrestling isn't high level quality wise)

Ambrose, Rollins, Styles, Braun Strowman. There's 4 off the top of my head.

Are you such a braindead koolaid drinker that you don't get this? No one else is getting over because they won't let anyone else get over. If Vince doesn't want you to have momentum or look good then you won't.

Ambrose was champion and was utter crap.

You're thinking about this all wrong when you say 'too small' or 'too fat'. You analyse why a guy can't get over when they're not over - i.e Roman. If a guy is already over then it doesn't matter. Focus on what he has thats getting over, not what he doesn't. Don't come up with reasons for something not to be over when it already is.

Balor is small BUT kids buy his merch in droves.

Ambrose can't throw a worked punch BUT a big chunk of the audience regard him as a can't miss act

Bray and Owens are fat BUT they generate huge babyface sympathy even with heel booking.

Sasha is a >women's wrestler BUT all audience demos buy into her act and her segments do above average ratings.

Zayn isn't cool or a looker BUT he is consistently over with crowds around the world.

All these acts are over, so they should all get a greenlight push to see if it will work at a higher level. 'Too small' or 'Too fat' is irrelevant.

Consider this from Meltzer:

>Every category, whether it’s wrestling ability, talking ability, likeability, looks, size, physique, height, perceived toughness, athletic ability and gimmick all go into how fans will react to different wrestlers. But they are all just categories.
>Small great wrestlers historically were guys who worked the second match. Except there was also Ray Stevens. Guys who looked like slobs usually made the business look bad to outsiders, and would be a disaster if put on top. Except there was Dusty Rhodes. Short acrobatic guys with minimal wrestling ability and zero psychology can’t draw a dime. Except Argentina Rocca carried Madison Square Garden’s business on his back for eight years.
>What is the best predictor of being over? The ability to get over. What is the best predictor of being able to draw on top? Being put on top with no shackles on your hands and wrists and ticket sales increase.

>>
>>2880015

Why isn't this an option?
>>
>>2879682

Face champ: Balor
Heel asshole: Owens
Heel monster: Strowman
Woman's champ: Sasha

Balor has massive shortcomings but they can relegated. He can't talk for shit which is why Owens is gonna be on the mic A LOT. Like how heel Rock was before Austin's heel turn. Balor isn't MONEY the way you need a face to be but you split the role with Sasha. Sasha is money. Sasha should get a bigger media push than any girl before, she should be on talk shows and shit.

>One things for sure though, he looked like a child next to Brock, Heyman and Joey Samoey
I felt embarrassed for him. Joe and Brock looked intimidating as fuck next to Angle and Heyman, then Roman sitting there doing the SAME SHITTY PROMO with the SAME SLACKER ATTITUDE that people hate him for. Favorite part was when Roman piped up and Joe shot him the fuck down, and it felt like a believable but unscripted moment. Roman got exposed hard next to two guys with "it"

What if.

Now just picture this... What if, they use Balor/AJ until they're too old then look at what the current roster of 2020 looks like?

I'd rather see AJ pushed hard as the face of the company for a short 4 years than to see Reigns continue this. There's no long term 8+ year Cena candidate right now, but there might be in a few years.
>>
Watch every Balor match in the main roster. In NXT he could do decent moves to the other manlets but he's so tiny his moveset is kicks, dives and slingblade.

He can't be the main guy.

who/what the fuck are they and how/when did they become an authority on the business.

These so called reports have been going on for basically as long as Reigns push. Nothing has changed.

It's really simple if Reigns isn't the face then who is? forget what YOU think. I don't see a guy in the entire business let alone the roster that McMahon would push ahead of Reigns. There are outside bets like Strowman and Galloway (McMahon will never get behind a 5'10 SJW millennial faggot like Omega).

There is no obvious better pick than Reigns. You losers have kicked up a fuss for years & tried to get Reigns replaced with Bryan, Rollins, Ambrose, Owens, Balor, AJ Styles and you've failed every single time. You guys NEVER learn. You want Reigns replaced? root for a guy Vince will also get behind. Idiots.
>>

>SJW millennial faggot

The problem with the shitters here and on le reddit too is that you're all a bunch of whiny bitches and a very vocal minority. Facts matter, what all of you think does not.

Vanilla, schmanilla the fact of the matter is Reigns can't draw and while his 100% WWE 'stick him down everyone's throats till they like him' push is able to get Reigns a respectable amount of merch sales and subpar ratings for his segments, a guy like Balor, whos been sidelined for a year and bounced around the lower-midcard having a new feud of the week (and that's without his very much over DEMON gimmick involved in ANY way), manages to still get huge reactions and top 3 company merch sales and generates buzz as soon as he's involved in anything worth talking about in the slightest.

The sad fact is, WWE sucks at creating new stars or using established stars from elsewhere properly. Now whether that's on purpose or not is a whole other debate, but if they need a face of the company in the current year, the answer is pretty clear to me. Then again my level of intellect vastly overshadows most of the basement dwelling dumb fucks that come here.

I am surprised how nobody has mentioned how it wouldn't make a difference at the moment whether Roman's the top face or not. WWE's recent booking has been awful no matter how one looks at it. This is especially true for babyfaces. Thus no matter who is chosen to be on that spot, Reigns or otherwise, they will never be good enough. It's why the whole thread has such a hard time selecting a suitable replacement.

This is, of course, disregarding the older talent like AJ Styles who would otherwise do fantastically well but are too old to get such a push.
>>
>>2879682
Dean Ambrose as long as he's actually trying.

Had the best match with HHH of the Shield. Has had some great matches with Seth Rollins, Dolph Ziggler, among others.

Dude's got some great moments on promo as well. That one promo he gave when he won the WWE Championship was amazing, and so were the series of promos where he annihilated John fucking Cena.

Not to even mention that Ambrose has also been the one doing the top face style house show run, too past couple years, doing more matches than anyone else.

If Dean isn't held back with shit booking, he can be fantastic.
>>
>>2879682
>If not Reigns who?
Why does there have to be a "face of the company".

Just be a wrestling company again ffs.

Is there a "face of the company" in the McGregor fight? Fuck no, it's just two cunts, splitting the fans because one's white and one's black.
>>
>>2881584
What if the real redpill is that Vince fucks up Roman's push so bad on purpose so that fans are distracted from the quality of the rest of the show.

Idiots, you can't make a monster heel giant the face of the company.

He's a good worker but his gimmick isn't strong enough to be the face of the company, it sometimes comes of cringy. Mojo has great potential but it's still early.

The "face of the company" is someone you can put at the top of the card with an image of that guy from the waist up. In order to be considered a successful face of the company, you need to be able to draw the interest of people who do not typically watch wrestling. You need to draw in the frat crowd by looking like one of the boys turned up to 11. You need to draw in females (the most valuable asset in any spectator sport) by making them want to fuck you based on that image. Basically you need to be a beacon for whatever audience is necessary to make your product socially acceptable.

Daniel Bryan draws neckbeards with no friends to drag into the company's audience. Roman draws middle-aged women that are looking for a real-life parallel for their boring romance novels. CM Punk draws people who HATE fun and come off as bitter. None of the audiences I mentioned can grow viewership faster than they repel viewers.

With that in mind, it is my belief that AJ, Brock, Finn, and Seth are best suited to fill each brand's top face and heel spots, with Finn being the "face of the company."

The fucking problem is that WWE has depushed Everyone else in the name of pushing Reigns over the last 5 years.

And
>Corbin
>Stroweman
2 guys whose only point has been to look intimidating and strong and scary, and they are both mediocre as hell.
Neither will ever be major guys, they aren't good enough.. more importantly not genuine enough.

So who?
Fuckin no one really has actual legitimate natural heat besides a few heels, maybe AJ but it's too late for him.
The only person I see with a glimmer of genuine heat is Sami Zayn (like it or not)
No one else is really there.

WWE is led by heels.
Owens, miz, brock
>>
In the short term, Dean, AJ and Balor for face, Owens, Strauman and Joe for heel.
>>
>>2882045
>The only person I see with a glimmer of genuine heat is Sami Zayn
Nobody gives a shit about derby guy besides people already so into wrestling that they suffer through bingo hall shit
>>
>>2882062
Nah, he gets energy out of people naturally.
Some nights it's very obvious.
Enzo can on the mic, but will never be pushed hard.
That's literally about all.

Zayn actually probably is in first place.
Dean's lost too much heat, so has Seth, you can't go back after that.
Then you have Balor who is feeling too manufactured.

Big stars happen by accident, when fans get a sense that it's done too obvious and on purpose we get turned off.
Every time.
>>

Chad Gable
>>
>No Johnny Gargano
He's one of the only two guys in WWE that have natural babyface charm (the other one is Zayn).
And since he's not a terrorist-suporting muslim like Zayn, he's pretty much the only feasible ones to be pushed as the main face.
>>
>>2881272
And that was the problem. It has been painfully clear that all Vince gave a fuck about was Roman. Now he doesn't really have a backup plan.

Yeah! I mean, what the fuck does it matter that he's the inaugural WWE Universal Champion,
or that he's the founder of the Bullet Club,
or that he brought the UK wrestling scene to prominence,
or that he elevated the NXT championship to new heights,
or that he's responsible for getting Beck noticed,
Or any of his other accolades through his roughly 17 year career.

I agree. Fuck this kid, he's forgettable as shit. I want my boy Roman to upstage this pathetic manlet.

He is vanilla because he is booked vanilla. Like Dean, they keep a tight leash on his character.
>>
>>2882176
Not him but it's ridiculous enough to even attempt to compare the fat unwashed fuck known as Kevin Owens to fat but clean and respectable-looking, ubercharismatic Dusty Rhodes representing the common man by looking like one.
For the Meltzer reply, they could be exceptions (and probably are anyways) to the rule by having other qualities that made them stand out like being "small" for wrestling but main eventing because of how good he was in the ring and how menacing he looked (Scott Steiner)

I don't think it's WWE's fault
I don't think it's the wrestlers' fault

I think wrestling just isn't cool anymore. The sport in general like WCW in 2000. They could make any change they want... Add stables, swap creative guys, reinvent gimmicks, redesign the aesthetic, bring in new talent, it would all be for nothing because WCW was Woolworth's and WWF was Sears. Now Sears is falling and there is nothing they can do because retail was made obsolete by the internet... And wrestling was made obsolete by MMA.

>>2882009
Austin alone didn't make the Attitude Era. Rock, Foley, Taker, Vince and DX were all integral as well.

It can't just be one guy carrying the company. Different characters for different demographics. There's no way the WWF drew the ratings it did if it weren't for Rock carrying the black and Hispanic demographics.
>>
>>2882322
This 100x

They could clone prime Austin and Hogan and the ratings won't go higher than the 3s. No one gives a shit about wrestling anymore. All the Chads watch MMA.

Wrestling did well in an era of TV filled with shit-tier programming like network dramas and soap operas. It was literally soap operas for men. There's far better content on TV now that caters to every possible demographic.

No you fucking dim witted dults.

How the fuck are you mistaking the obvious?
Reigns isnt liked because WWE writes shitty television. They treat their fans like 5 year olds.
Now when you add the fact that your main character is a very shitty actor... you have the current situation.

christ this isnt rocket science.

You still don't get it. Casuals... College students, spring breakers, "normies" in general are the only thing that can inflate a bubble.

WWE NEEDS casuals. WWE needs an audience full of screaming idiots, bimbos, trailer trash, outdoorsmen, and all around they need people who have sex. A show is only as cool as its audience. The last thing WWE needs is to fall into a niche and end up catering to them smarks, jimmies, and workrate faggots. You will see real men in that ring when you see real men in the audience. But we're stuck with Xavier Woods, a guy sold on being UNCOOL, JUST LIKE YOU! WWE is selling these simulated loser friends to pussies like us because we're all they have left... And we're also responsible for being all they have left. The company's culture is so visibly emasculated and there is no bigger indicator of this than the fact that NOBODY in the company is brave enough to say they love titties. In the back of their mind they know this Eva Marie is hot as fucking shit, but their facade kicks in and convinces them she needs to go because she can't pop 450 sunset flips and botch with the rest of the four horsewomen. If the fans were cool, if the company was cool, they would stop surrendering to cuckold peer pressure, trying to make them walk on eggshells. They would have FIRED AJ Lee inadvertently for trying to make Mick Foley's wet dream come true. They would make an angle out of Paige being a cum-gargling meat toilet. They would have Alexa's fat ass and beefy pussy bouncing around with that shitty "I know you want meeee" playing in the background. These fine ass bitches would be valets, not botch factories. WWE wants Jimmies. You know what drew me in as a Jimmy? I REALLY wanted to fuck Sable. She wasn't beautiful or talented, but she was raunchy, curvaceous, and down to fuck. My dad was glad I wasn't gay, my mom was glad I stopped playing with Barbies, and WWE was glad they picked me as their audience instead of a wannabe booker.
