Just a reminder, but Braun's heat/momentum/aura were completely destroyed in order to try and get Roman over. He's pretty much dead after Sunday if he doesn't win.

sunday? he's dead now

Sometimes people exaggerate how bad Raw was to be humorous. Without any exaggeration, this was one of the worst Raws of the year in a terrible year of Raws.

this is said every week and it is true every week

Heres a thing about the Reigns mega push:

If they were truly pushing him as the face of the company, and the be all and end all that we should all care about, and that it is his story that we should care about, and how much people in and outside love Roman, oh my gosh isnt he so great and dreamy and the best ever, etc. Shouldn't they have him do some more media?

Like throw him some interviews, have him do a couple of softball photo ops, trot him out when you are making the "The Saudis/Fox people gave us a truckload of cash" announcements. We all know how much Vince and the company cream over mainstream exposure, (you know like Muscle and Fitness hehe), so why aren't they exposing him in the mainstream more often?

Is he really that uncharismatic? I know he has dome one or two interviews where he comes across as a sooky piss baby, and he is also bad at twitter, but given a half competent media manager, and some softball questions/friendly outlets these things can be worked around. Yet, when they need people to front the cameras, they get HHH, or Cena, or now Shawn. People from back in the day when wrestling was cool and good, (or at least remembered by the interviewer etc.)

If they really wanted to shove Roman down our throats, shouldn't they be shoving him down the throats of the mainstream media also?

they dont really seem to do outside media stuff all that much. though if we go by this metric nia jax is the current face of the company

plus house shows give wrestlers time to practice matches for TV which WWE desperately needs since so many of their pushed people can't wrestle
