It’s the holiday season, and that means it’s time to start stressing about presents for the people around you. And while we may always have trouble coming up with that perfect gift for certain family members, we’re pretty sure we’ve got the right idea when it comes to what we’d like to give certain WWE Superstars this year. So, if we could assume the Santa Claus mantle and gain the power to give everyone exactly what they needed, here’s what we’d put under some wrestlers’ Christmas trees this December.
Roman Reigns – A Fresh Start
We don’t know how we’d do it, whether through Men In Black-style mind erasing, or a wholesale gimmick change that puts him under a mask until everyone forgets who’s underneath it, but we’re starting to feel really bad for Roman Reigns, because he cannot possibly succeed in his current incarnation, mostly due to the fact that fans simply will not forgive the sins of WWE Creative over the past couple of years. Reigns is a good wrestler who hasn’t actually peaked as a worker yet, and it’s not his fault he’s been booked as far away from his strengths as possible. It’s also not his fault he got annointed the Chosen One at a time when the only person the fans wanted to see was Daniel Bryan. At this point, even if WWE pushed him down into the actual midcard for another year, the instant he rose up again, all those issues would come back, and that’s actually not fair. Somehow, some way, Roman Reigns needs a clean slate, and if we could, we’d like to find a way to give him one.
