Re: Slick G, what did you think of the Reigns and Cena segment on RAW?
He's been positioned to be THE GUY in the WWR for YEARS NOW. They're tried everything from soup to nuts, nothing's worked. He's no closer than he was, it ain't gonna happen at this point. If you're gonna succeed as THE GUY, you're gonna have to be a Tom Brady sort, nothing less will do, or work, or be a success. Their methods are highly questionable, they've gone to the hilt with Reigns, gave it too much time. Like a lot of people have said, they should have turned him heel a long time ago, it fits him better anyhow. The sports metaphor has some relevance, but also the WWE is not a sport, so there are tons of differences too. He's following a script, but he's not a THE GUY level promo, you can tell he doesn't believe what's he's saying a fair bit of the time, he struggles to connect with the crowd too. I'm being harsh maybe, but for the role he's expected to be, that's what it takes, and more.
