General consensus seems to be that Roman Reigns is definitely gonna get the rocket push. We all know that timing is often everything with these things, and pushing a guy too fast, or waiting too long, can mess with his heat or even cause the push to fail.
My question is: if you were booking the Reigns ascension to the top, what’s the general gameplan and timeline you’d follow? How soon do you do the Shield split? Does he feud with Ambrose first? Do you give him a long run and a variety of feuds with the IC/US belt? When do you plan on having him regularly wrestle in main events, and, ultimately, capture the world title? Given that it seems Reigns may get to showcase himself in the Rumble, I thought now would be a good time to ask the BoD how they’d proceed with the Reigns push from here.
My only stipulation is that my question assumes the push WILL happen, so answers like, “I wouldn’t push him at all, I’d strap the rocket to Ambrose instead!” don’t cut it.
