Drew McIntyre and Roman Reigns are the WWE Champion and Universal Champion respectively. They are the top stars in their respective brands and have proven to be solid champions in their own right.
While speaking to Michael Morales Torres of Lucha Libre Online, Eric Bischoff said that Drew McIntyre and Roman Reigns won’t become the face of the company. Bischoff added that it isn’t due to them not having the ability, but because of WWE’s current business model.
“It wouldn’t surprise me that at some point, Vince McMahon made up his mind that he would never allow anyone talent to become so powerful that he or she would put WWE in a secondary position. I think that’s one of the reasons why you see a lot of top talent. Drew McIntyre is a great example. Roman Reigns is another great example. Either one or both of them could be that talent that could be ‘the face of the company’ as people like to refer to as. Do I think either one of them will get there? I don’t. Not because they don’t have the ability, but because I don’t think the business model for WWE wants it.”
Drew McIntyre is currently feuding with Sheamus. On the other hand, Roman Reigns’ feud with Kevin Owens is still ongoing.
