4 WWE Superstars who will never reach 'The Guy' status
These WWE Superstars will always be good but not good enough.
Through the years, there has been one Superstar who has been the poster boy for WWE. While it has been the likes of Hulk Hogan and Stone Cold in the past, John Cena played the role of 'The Guy' for the most part of the 21st century. Now Roman Reigns is the most likely successor to Cena.
While wrestling fans will love to see anyone else in the role of the top company man, Reigns is the guy. Stars like AJ Styles and Braun Strowman give Roman a run for his money but Vince McMahon has always put Roman Reigns over everyone else.
A sad truth is that WWE has plenty of really good wrestlers who could get there, but never will. Now we look at four wrestlers who should be 'The Guy' but will never be.
#4 Sami Zayn
There's no doubting that Sami Zayn deserves a title shot. He is getting that chance at Fastlane in a few weeks. But that's about it. Sami as a baby face could've been the next Daniel Bryan. Exactly how his NXT run went, he could have sprung back from his run of losses to win big. It is safe to say that it won't happen anytime soon.
Now if Sami Zayn were to win the title, it isn't guaranteed that he will be successful after that. He will fall into that pit like most world champions do and never get a shot after his first title run and or go back to being jobber again.
WWE sees Sami as a sidekick than as a good looking guy who everyone loves. Unless Sami leaves WWE to go back to the Indies, he will always be good, but not good enough.
