Well I don't think it's booking that's keeping him down. 99 percent of the time I would say booking, but they book him to be the strongest dude in the company.

Yeah. I'm 100% certain that HHH will lose to Rollins, which makes that a little more palatable. The Mick Foley Socko moment was definitely heightened by the smugness of Triple H and Steph leading up to it, and Seth coming out for the beatdown was great...but it was all sorta deflated by HHH immediately turning the tables and beating Seth down with the crutch. Save that poo poo for next week or something. Jeez.

At this point, I want WWE to sign Ronda Rousey solely because I think she's the only woman who they would consistently allow to go over Steph in the name of being "best for business". They just won't book any of their own talent to give her comeuppance.

it's telling that when the Shield broke up, Dean and Seth both changed most of their attire and their theme music, but Roman kept the same flak jacket and overall boring theme.

make him heel and maybe find a new finisher that isn't literally just a loving jumping punch. teach him something like croyt's wrath or some kind of floatover brainscramble ddt or a tiger suplex, gently caress, anything but the superman punch

lol you left out the second part

quote:

Who can say? The only person that ever told me or told the world that other planets exist is NASA, but there’s a reason for all… they’re making a lot of money, a lot of money. They have a lot of money coming in. NASA is not an American thing. It’s a world thing. A lot of people don’t know that, so when you start asking questions, there are not a lot of answers sometimes.”

THIS is why Roman Reigns has failed.

He was portrayed as that guy who has clung on to his high school glory days for far too long. With Seth and Dean debuting new themes/attire having Reigns come out to the same poo poo as The Shield was one of the first times the fans were disappointed. Plus, his music basically screams "Remember The Shield guys? Right? Wasn't that great? Cheer me plz thx"

I think if even came out to a different theme and kept the look (which does work for him) we may be a different spot with him.

Also, here's a fun exercise. What if Batista ended up winning the title at WM and he became the main attention of DB fans fury. Would Reigns still be hurt by winning the Rumble/Fastlane match?

People tend to like faces when they find them compelling or when they can identify with them. Theres nothing compelling or identifiable about Reigns at all. Hes transparently the hand picked "next big thing" and as such they have built him up by over-exposing him and having him show few physical weaknesses. So yeah, while hes made to look strong, if anything thats worked to his detriment. Both Punk and Daniel Bryan got far more over than he has ever been without having to be protected in the way that he has.

Honestly, the best thing to do would be to turn heel against Undertaker and have him turn up on Raw the next night with a new theme, new ring gear and a new finisher. Something more brutal than the superman punch. Then let him go loose on the mic so maybe he learns how to express himself properly on it and he might not come across as so monotonous dork all the time.

Or just fire the fucker, because I'm sick of seeing him.
