WWE is hurting for a top male star at the moment. John Cena is focusing more on his acting career at the moment, Brock Lesnar is never around, and Roman Reigns is currently away battling leukemia. The only man who has the potential to take the torch and run with it is current Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins.
Recently, WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross took to his podcast, “The Ross Report,” to make a case for why WWE should offer Rollins the chance to be the company’s top babyface:
“Seth Rollins is a GREAT wrestler and when the company makes a firm commitment to get behind him at every turn of the road so that they got their next Cena on site, then we’ll see Seth continue to go up the ladder and finally reside in that promise land of legitimate WrestleMania level year-in year-out main eventers.
“That’s a whole team effort as I said earlier. I don’t feel the commitment that Rollins is our next guy. Are they just waiting for Roman Reigns to come back after he’s kicked leukemia’s ass? Are they just waiting for Braun Strowman to get back into the picture? I think the thing to do is give the guy the chance to be the guy.
“And if he can be beaten out of that spot because of ability and performance, so be it. Not just a ‘this guy looks a little more impressive in an 8×10 type thing.’”
