By The Numbers: Is Roman Reigns Being Pushed Too Quickly?



With WrestleMania only a week away and recent months being dominated by the WWE universes defiance in accepting Roman Reigns as the Company’s next big babyface; as a result trending hashtags like #AnyoneButReigns and #AnyoneButRoman have been seen across all of social media in the run up to WrestleMania but is there a case that the WWE is trying to make Roman Reigns too strong too soon. How does his win percentage compare to other established stars in the early years of their careers? Were they given longer to bed in instead of being thrown in at the deep end?

By The Numbers has the breakdown.

First 6 Years Of Career

Roman Reigns has had a sustained push and win streak since coming into the WWE that is better than Hall of Famers The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin and Triple H. In fact the only WWE superstars who were booked even more strongly at the onset of their careers were The Undertaker and Brock Lesnar. In The Undertakers case he was fed much lower class opposition at the outset of his career which does skew some of the figures in year 1 and 2.

The evidence is there however that the WWE it appears is going all in with Roman and with an aging legends cast no longer able to support full-time are we starting to see a rush to establish main event level talent and could this ultimately have an effect in alienating an audience?

Who knows but one things for sure at the current trend Super Cena might be about to be replaced by the unbeatable Roman Empire.
