So a portion of the IWC is hoping for a double turn in the main event at Wrestlemania 31, pairing a double-crossing Paul Heyman with a new heel Roman Reigns and creating a new top babyface in Brock Lesnar.
Therefore, the WWE would be investing in a short-term fix for another year or two with the help of a part time talent to buy time to build some promising main event ready talent.
Championship sports franchises can be built either by rebuilding a team around a group of young, groomed and developed talent that will thrive for many years, or seeking out veteran free agents ready to make an immediate impact for a short time.
WWE has done their share of both rebuilding (John Cena, Batista,Triple H, Undertaker for example) or re-loading from the thriving territories in the 80s (Hulk Hogan, Shawn Michaels, Roddy Piper, Bret Hart) and WCW in the 90s (Eddie Guerrero, Booker T, Chris Benoit, Chris Jericho, Rey Mysterio) with stars that went right to the top of the roster.
It’s time for WWE to finally turn the corner and stop caving to sign to a lucrative part time deal the last high-valued free agent left to carry the promotion for one, maybe two more years.
WWE has finally made the right move in my opinion to make Roman Reigns a top babyface (ready or not ready), and Seth Rollins a top heel.
Add a supporting cast of John Cena, Daniel Bryan, Bray Wyatt (and maybe even Rusev in my opinion) and WWE is halfway through a long-needed rebuilding of the roster. It is not the time any longer for WWE to book for the short term. Otherwise, why have the Performance Center or NXT in the first place. -KOP
