mvpjoe16 Asks: Question regarding building talent versus utilizing talent. I imagine it's easier said than done, but it seems that we (fans) are in a cycle of seeing everyone not-Roman being used to build other talent, rather than seeing talent elevated and performing "on top". I'm not a Roman guy, but I get it, and think he has vastly improved over the past couple of years, and on some level, I just want WWE to put the belt on him and let him have a run already. By run, I mean extended time with the belt, or otherwise longer than PPV to PPV. I feel the same with Charlotte, AJ, and a number of others. Run with the horses that are leading the race, so to speak. However, a number of would be top-stars, such as AJ, Becky Lynch, and Finn Balor, are being used more and more to build other talent. Hell, AJ was taking risky bumps to get the Ellsworth angle over not long ago.
Two questions, and I know you can't answer them completely in a line or two. Should we see more "on top" people at this time? How do you make, or hard is the call to make, whether to ride someone for all their worth, or use their worth to push the next guy?
Very involved question with likely a litany of correct answers. Talents who are being pushed have to get on some semblance of a roll, without question. I always looked at it on a case by case basis because most talents are, or should be, different.
This process is all a matter of timing and instincts but will always be subjective no matter who is calling the shots and what talent's are involved.
