    First off, this failure comment has nothing to do with him as a person, off-screen. And honestly, it actually has nothing to do with what he's done on-screen as a character. It's really moreso to do with Vince and co and their booking of him. It's the corny unending babyface character, the sufferin suckatash, etc etc etc

    Granted I havent watched Smackdown in months, but occasionally WWE vids pops up on my YouTube feed and I'll see a screen-cap. Last time I saw Roman screen cap, he was either putting dog food on Corbin or eating dog food himself. And now I'm hearing rumors he's supposed to fight for the title at Mania......AGAIN. How?

    It's 2020 now, Vince has been trying to get Roman to pop since WM 31 in San Fran.

    He tried to force it, but the crowd after the Rumble and lead-in to Mania wasnt having it, in the end he knew the time was wrong, so they last min switched to the Seth run-in. Wait til next year....

    Then WM 32 in Dallas, he tried it again in front of that massive crowd in a horrible match vs HHH. Roman wins, still not sticking

    Then he(Vince) tried it again maybe the next year at WM 33 by having Roman beat Undertaker if I remember correctly. The next night the crowd was a brutal thing of beauty, which would've been great if Roman wasn't a corny babyface.

    Again vs Brock at WM 34 for the belt, but this time Roman loses.

    WM 35....I can't even remember what happened last year. :yeshrug:


    Point is, Vince has dropped this ball to the point it might not be salvageable. By being completely stubborn for his next John Cena, who was also forced down our throats as a corny baby-face, Vince has ruined a guy who could've really been a much bigger than star than he'll probably ever amount to being. :manny:

    When you look at it THAT way and how they were trying to build him up to become, of course he's a failure. It's like, dude has the LOOK and ring attire of a heel. He's never going to pop as a babyface

    Him battling and defeating leukemia -- at least for the time being -- has given him new life.

    But the WWE has done everything in its power to fail him, oddly by constantly putting him in position to succeed. The WWE's sense of timing is fukking horrible.

    Roman would make a great heel. I’d love to see a turn around Summerslam.

    How will he fight for the title at WM?

    He wins the Elimination Chamber as predicted.

    As far as Roman at last WM he was beating Drew McIntyre.

    Now it seems both will be in separate World title matches.

    I thought Roman would be big time, and in some ways he did by getting pushed by the E'.

    But at the same time the Company no longer hires people to write for Wrestling, they write for Entertainment/Hollywood, forcing Wrestlers into crappy angles and killing their push because of the per-fabrication feel. If Roman was allowed to be natural he would be popular, and his push would be successful, but alas it went the other way.

    Predictable move set
    Little natural charisma compared to who they want him to be
    Booked entirely too strong with no natural “rival” of somewhat equal success
    No character progression...


    So yea, failure so far :yeshrug:

    They had something going with Braun during the 'I'm not finished with you!' feud but they continuously cooled off Braun too. :beli:

    Every time he gets over and crowds are into him (which is pretty much anytime he's a silent bad ass kicking ass), he gets put into terrible never ending feuds where he has to do terrible long promos every week until people hate him again.

    If he was booked more like Braun or Goldberg, he'd be the true replacement for Cena that Vince wants, but Vince is an old man who gets in his own way constantly often out of spite for his audience and his business.
