There is a buzz in WWE over Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose. Rollins and Ambrose have created the most excitement because of their reputation from the independent wrestling circuit, but it's Reigns who might become the bigger star.
A lot of fans aren't aware of this, but Reigns has quite the bloodline (older brother is Rosey, father is Sika). While WWE isn't nearly as obsessed with second-generation wrestlers as they used to be, it's still considered quite the marketing asset for performers.
While some may try to deny it, looks have always been, and will always be, an important thing in professional wrestling. Out of the three guys, Roman Reigns looks the most like a main-event performer in WWE.
Most importantly, Reigns has the support of Triple H, who has basically been put in charge of the developmental program. It's been said that the on-screen chief operating officer and real-life executive vice president sees more potential from the former college football player than he does in Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose.
Another thing that bodes well for Reigns is that Triple H is desperately trying to prove that he has an eye for talent, especially after he was criticized for putting so much stock into Sin Cara. He has enough influence in the company to convince the creative department to make the path easier for Reigns.
You never truly know when you're going to catch lightning in a bottle in the world of professional wrestling, but if you factor in all of the advantages that Reigns has, he's the smart bet out of the three.
