    Re: OT: Top Ten Wrestling Dream Matches



    I will say this about Roman, regardless of my feelings about him, if the intention was to make him the most reviled wrestler in the business, they have done it. Braun basically murdering him to chants of "thank you Braun", a "you deserve it" chant while he was getting stretchered out, the "hey hey hey goodbye" chant while the ambulance is driving off. Brutal stuff. This is Mohammed Hassan level heel heat. He could legitimately be the biggest heel the company has had in a decade plus if they let him.

    They won't though. Watch him be back next week, showing literally no signs of the attack.

    I agree 100%. He will be back and "sore" but issue the challenge to Braun for a street fight at Payback or something, where Reigns will win and things will be the same with him. He will continue to get the loudest boos ever, yet he will be booked as top guy face. I dunno if it's just Vince trolling the fans at this point, or if he's just saying screw it, I want Reigns as the "face" of the company and that's just how I'm gonna book him, no matter what the fans say, but there's no way in Hell they can't look at it and see that they have the set up for a top legit Heel.

    I think Vince really just cares that he's getting a reaction. Of course he would prefer the face reaction, but they still are getting 10K+ paying to come and boo him to death which is better than them sitting on their hands doing nothing during his segments or not coming at all.

    Like you said though, it's shitty booking. You want the guy to be your top face, but you book him to retire possibly the most beloved wrestler in WWE history in Undertaker, while he was already getting mixed reactions at best? What did they expect to happen there? Roman beat Taker, which is supposed to be a big deal, I guess, yet now he's going to be booked as underdog against Braun? A guy he has already beaten clean once?

    This isn't difficult. Roman should be running roughshod over guys right now, a tweener at most but should be more heelish in actions and words, leading up to a real underdog eventually toppling him. I'm sorry, but in kayfabe at this point Roman is only an underdog if he's wrestling Brock (or Goldberg, god forbid). Book Roman as a monster heel against someone like - I'm just throwin a name out - Sami Zayn, the matches will be good, Roman can still go over, you get people wanting to see him get beaten for the right reasons rather than just not liking him, etc, etc.

    It's like they have had this plan for 3-4 years now that Roman would be the guy to beat Brock and they simply aren't going to let it die.
