How do you think Reigns' face push could possibly get over. I don't think for a moment that the majority of fans would celebrate him as a leading face, but let's say in a perfect world we have WWE fans that are actually willing to see the end of a story, the development of a champion and the outcome of a push. So, with that said. I think Reigns needs to first get a makeover. The fact that he's kept the Shield theme, attire and entrance (up until Mania) shows that WWE is trying to carve him out as the spiritual bearer of the Shield's name and accomplishments. Ditch the attire, and theme. Find him something unique. Second, I say let him go his own route in the ring. His matches in FCW were actually pretty good. He has some good moves and can really showcase his in-ring ability. Capturing the traditionalists, that appreciate good in-ring work above all else, should be a good way to capture a target audience. Also, from my experience they tend to be more open-minded. The next thing to do is give him a solid 10-15 minute match with someone that can carry him. Much like HHH vs. Foley; when someone is paired with another that can carry anyone, they improve dramatically and build credibility. I'm not sure exactly who but Cesaro comes to mind. And something that needs to be done, face or heel, is getting a manager. Someone new and not Heyman or some random women wrestler that has nothing going on. Have him back away from the microphone until he gains his confidence. I'm sure he is confident, but it doesn't seem that way. That's my plan.
