As WWE has been working on building their rosters for years now, we see that there are now several great characters on the ship and several of them can be considered as nice massive anchors for the company. Certainly, Roman can now be labeled a definitive star.
I think the reason I never explored that side is because WWE never felt comfortable with it, as they had no viable alternatives. And I respect this business choice, I really respect it a lot. But now with all this work done to found the future, which will go on for the next decade, maybe ...
maybe. I do not know." John Cena is still one of WWE's top guys whenever he's in the ring, the problem is that he's in the ring less and less these days. In fact, he last wrestled for WWE at WrestleMania 36 in 2020 during the Firefly Fun House match against Bray Wyatt.
