Are people still on the "Roman Reigns, world class seller" train?

How great would an Owens/Styles feud over the IC title would look right now?
Who's Rob Viper ?

I think both of them are above that level at this point.

Unless you're booked in the main event angle with Reigns, it's just guys having matches for the sake of having matches. None of the midcard titles or feuds matter. Whether that's by design or though sheer incompetence I don't know.

I think this is overstated and untrue. Having a feud or being involved in a title match puts you on PPV, gets your face on tv and allows you the chance to have more merchandise sold. Plus, it allows the wrestlers a chance to move up and be considered for that main event program.

Look at the last show and four matches were promoted heavily: the main event, the four way, the women's match and the Asylum match.

I am just happy that guys like Styles, Owens, Zayn & Cesaro are getting the TV & PPV time to put on great matches. At the end of the day, not everyone is going to get a Reigns-Cena-Lesnar level push. Although, as long they get the opportunity to perform, they can continue to show why they are some of the best professional wrestlers in the world & build their fanbase. A Owens vs Styles feud regardless of title would provide great, possibly show-stealing wrestling matches on TV & PPV which the fans would enjoy. That can only be a benefit for Styles & Owens. That of course, is if they get a decent amount of time to work, which they have been getting. P.S. there have been solid feuds involving the IC title recently (Owens vs Ambrose, Miz vs Cesaro, Owens vs Zayn).

The last two shows have been solid overall but especially the upper mid card, upper card. Curious to see how the brand split affects this
