WWE rumors: Vince McMahon interested in pushing 3 top WWE stars

With the big influx of young talents in the WWE, it seems the company is on an upswing when it comes to building for the future. Since “Wrestlemania 30,” it seems the focus is more on the young stars and less on the older talent, and there are three wrestlers in particular that Vince McMahon is very high on. According to PWS on Wednesday, McMahon really likes Roman Reigns, Bray Wyatt and Bad News Barrett.

This isn’t the first time that Bad News Barrett has been pushed. He won NXT back when it was a reality competition and went on to hold the Intercontinental title on a couple of occasions. However, after a series of “Bad News” promos that people seemed to hate, he got over with the crowd. Now, fans chant “I’ve got some bad news” along with him and were solidly behind him as he beat Big E for the Intercontinental title, a star the WWE was high on late last year.

The idea that Roman Reigns is high on the company’s list of stars is no surprise as well. Triple H has worked hard on bringing up The Shield and The Wyatt Family, and both factions are doing great. Since Reigns has the look that both Triple H and Vince McMahon prefer in a wrestler, he is the one that appears to be the hardest pushed of the trio. There are rumors that Reigns will be in the world title picture come “Wrestlemania 31.”

There are also heavy WWE rumors that indicate that Roman Reigns will win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at “Wrestlemania 31.” When looking at who he might fight, there are rumors that the two biggest names in consideration are Brock Lesnar and The Rock. It would give Lesnar a good way to pass a torch one year after beating Undertaker. As for The Rock, he already said that he wants to work with his cousin at least once.

The third WWE name that is huge on Vince McMahon’s list is Bray Wyatt. While Wyatt doesn’t look like the kind of wrestler that McMahon usually pushes, Wyatt is a second generation star, the son of IRS Mike Rotunda. He also has built up a massive fanbase, despite working as one of the top heels in the company and has a ton of potential with his character.
