Jim Ross wants Raw superstar to dethrone Roman Reigns as WWE's top guy by 2019

Roman Reigns officially took over John Cena as the top guy in the WWE a couple of years ago now, but in the fan's eyes, he's certainly not universally accepted for the role. Many fans see other superstars in the WWE as the top guy.

Top Guy

The likes of Brock Lesnar, Seth Rollins, Daniel Bryan, AJ Styles, Dean Ambrose, Samoa Joe, Randy Orton and several others have been seen by many fans as the top superstar across the WWE, and each one of them has a worthy case for the prestigious title.

Speaking on his the latest episode of The Jim Ross Report podcast, Jim Ross wants to add another name into the mix, and the WWE Hall of Famer thoroughly believes that they could be a top guy in the company as soon as 2019.

The legendary WWE commentator believes Braun Strowman could dethrone Reigns as the new top guy of the company as early as next year. This most definitely would be his biggest achievement in the WWE to date.

Ross said on The Monster Among Men, according to Cageside Seats: “I like the continued advancement of Braun Strowman. He’s not being force fed to me. I think he’s going to be the next big thing in 2019. I wouldn’t do it before then. I don’t think he’s quite ready for it.

"But man you can see him getting better and better every week. Braun Strowman, in my opinion, the future lead mule in the WWE.”

Get these hands

Strowman has just gone from stride to stride ever since joining the WWE roster. From simple beginnings as a member of The Wyatt Family, to most recently winning the Raw Tag Team Championship with a 10-year-old at WrestleMania 34 in New Orleans last month.

Arguably, the highlight of his WWE career so far has to be his feud with Reigns last year following WrestleMania 33. This feud truly propelled The Monster Among Men up the pecking order in the company, as well as into the hearts of many WWE fans.


Strowman is currently booked to be in the Money in the Bank ladder match for a world championship match contract against seven other superstars. While fans would love to see him win, he has enough star power on his own to be placed in a world title picture without it.

A world title run could be all that The Monster Among Men needs to become the top guy in the WWE by 2019.
