Backstage Talk on Cena’s Health, WWE Looking to Push Ambrose

– John Cena continues to work pretty banged up. There is more and more talk that Cena’s time as the full-time top star isn’t going to last forever. There’s a feeling that he will do main event storylines for as long as his body holds up and then probably work a schedule where he wouldn’t always be on top but be saved for a few big matches and then eventually begin a part-time role.

The time frame of all this obviously depends on his body more than anything else but it’s now being said that there is probably at least one more face of WWE that will be chosen by Vince McMahon before Vince hands over all power to Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.

– Right now, Dean Ambrose is the guy WWE officials want to build into a headliner once the angle with The Shield has run its course. At the same time, there are some in the company who think Roman Reigns has the most potential of the three. There’s also a feeling that Reigns isn’t ready as far as in-ring skills go but Ambrose and Seth Rollins are.

  • Cena has about 5-7 good years left (tops) he deserves ONE LAST heel run, they can use a heel Cena to bring up other talents.

    Roman Reigns = Mason Ryan. ‘Nuff said

    A lot of these young guys need to be pushed, & Cena/Orton should put them over. Let Punk be the older champion, like Triple H from 2002, then find a new face to headline the company.

    I don’t really understand the comments complaining about Reigns. We know he’s not ready for a big push, the report said as much. Ambrose and Rollins will probably both be featured before him, and deservedly so. Ambrose, especially, could be a top heel within a few years.

    However, I really like the vibe I’m getting from Reigns. He brings something a lot of recent WWE guys seem to lack, which is that he’s naturally intimidating. He reminds me a little of some of the old-school guys who could make the announcers scared just by looking at them. I think he’s got a lot of potential, provided he can go inside the ring.

  • what?

    i must be missing something i don’t think either 3 are all that great

    LOL at Reigns having the most potential. Most potential = better look. Give me a break, WWE is ridiculously shallow, this business is about talent.

    Ambrose is one of the 5 best performers in the entire WWE and he’s only 27. Pushing Reigns, or Rollins for that matter ahead of him would just be stupid on…so many levels. I can’t really say I have any faith in this report anyway, WWE seems to love pushing their best performers for a couple months and then turning them into jokes, like Barrett and Sandow. I’d be surprised if they didn’t fuck up with Ambrose.

    “There’s also a feeling that Reigns isn’t ready as far as in-ring skills go”. And apparently promo skills considering they haven’t let him say 2 words since he debuted. I know he’s supposed to be the silent muscle, but right now he looks to be as boring as batshit.

    LOVE Dean Ambrose! Main Eventer for sure. Great Heel Feel to him as well.

    we wanna see dean ambrose vs mason ryan at wresltemania 30

  • mtlhitman

    I hope dean ambrose will be a loose canon type of character a bit like brian pilman they need to make him go nuts feud with a good midcard wrestlers then fight for the i.c’belt and then be one of the top 3 hee in wwe if he as enough credibility cause pushing him too soon could be a mistake let those’s’young prospect work their ass out and gain some respect from wwe univers but Ambrosse got a good potential.

  • sss

    I really do like Reigns, but I don’t think people want to see big guys running around as sloppy wrestlers anymore. We don’t get enough entertaining matches at is the last thing I want to see is 6 more months of Ryback type squash matches
