Yeah not his horrible obviously scripted cheese filled promos or his lack of charisma, his limited ring skills, his pretty boy looks or the fact he's being forced down everyone's throats, it's actually all about his teeth.

I've just seen a report saying Reigns' promos are all written by Vince McMahon, doesn't surprise me as it's exactly the kind of lame out of touch rubbish that Vince is convinced people enjoy. The promo Roman did on Smackdown was terrible, why is a guy being booked as a tough as nails bad ass using lines like suffering suckatash?? It did seem that the little wink he gave to the crowd was almost to say yeah I know my lines are shit right.

Wouldn't surprise me if Vince was his ventriloquist, the way he's been pushed and the stories like CM Punk told on his podcast about being directed to protect Reigns credibility just seems like he's the chosen one.

They'll have him trying to get catchphrases over soon and being a suck-up like Cena.

Reigns Promo's are badly written he is even worse at delivering them. He has been picked as the next Go-To guy that is obvious but IMO the Injury is the only reason he isn't getting the WM spot in the rumble. I think WWE are banking on Bryan's in Ring return at the rumble to garner the pops like he was getting when he left to get the crowd behind him. I see him winning the Rumble. I see reigns having a long spell in ring before being eliminated by the likes of Rusev or Show

He's resorted to pretty much parodying himself at this point, and between the fist-cocking grin on Raw and the wink on Smackdown, I'm honestly torn about whether I think he realizes that's what he's doing or not.

If Reigns were mid-card, I'd like him just fine. The only thing I don't like about him is the idea that he could be the guy to beat Brock Lesnar for the WWE title at WrestleMania.

He's definitely the next chosen one being groomed to take over from Cena as the top guy in the company. Trouble is I can see him tanking and getting far more fan resentment than Cena has ever got, Cena has been handed some real cheeseball promos in his time but he's always delivered them expertly and has proven himself as a top promo guy. Reigns however is getting the same type of lame material scripted for him but doesn't have the ability to deliver it with the convixion and the charisma that Cena does.

His cool action man look and style may get over with the kids but much like Cena I think older fans will soon grow sick of him.

The thing is, if I knew Reigns could do better, but is held back by bad writing, I´d say, turn it up a notch. Make the writing even worse. get the people to REALLY turn on him without him doing a proper heel turn. THEN, let him loose and give him the Rock-Style heel run. I know the fans would come back around then too and he´d soar in popularity.

However, I think Reigns really is that mediocre on the mic. So, while they could still execute the first part no problem, he would completely flounder and fail on the second.

The thing is though despite all these flaws he's remained popular, if he can retain his popularity through Wrestlemania season while being pushed ahead of guys like Bryan I will be impressed. I think WWE are trying hard to establish Reigns as the new kiddies favourite which I get as that's where the money is so that's why Vince sees the cheese filled promos as a essential part of Reigns' act, the older fans may cringe at his mic-work but as long the younger fans cheer and clap and ask Mum and Dad to buy them all his merchandise it's fine. WWE do need a guy like that as Cena is getting older and more beat up by the day.

Until he can get some power into his words and some obvious charisma he's not going to reach the heights they need him to hit. He still needs a mouth piece so give him one until he gets the practice he needs.

Its all well and good saying 'he needs a mouthpiece' but there are barely any managers out there, even rarer to find a male babyface one.

Axel and Cesaro got the so called best one out there in Heyman, and got no benefit at all from being asscociated with him.

Its just fantasy booking.
