Roman Reigns is the current example of what WWE truly wants from their fans. The powers that be do not care about what kind of a reaction a guy has if their moving merchandise, the arenas are sold out, and the fans are screaming something. It’s flawed logic, but it’s profitable, and that’s the way it has to be,

Recently, Jim Ross wrote his latest blog entry about the issues of heels and faces and believes that being a one hundred percent face or heel is no longer a concept that works in today’s wrestling.

You can read JR’s full blog entry right here. Below is what JR had to say about the subject:

“The days of being a 100% babyface or 100% villain in pro wrestling are likely over and if not over certainly nearing an end and at best is on life support. Smart booking, in ring execution, creative tweaks, etc likely won’t change this trend that is society influenced more than it is wrestling influenced in my opinion. Something as straight forward as the broadcast of the NFL Draft and how the live audience responded over a three day period is certainly proof that our society is one of overt defiance and for being outspoken in essentially all forums which would have been unheard of just a few years ago. This is not a sign of the end times for pro wrestling but it does indicate that decision makers must create with these issues in mind and present their products more smartly and with today’s ticket buyer/TV viewer in mind more than ever. It will also affect how broadcasters present the product, too. Times they are a changing and this isn’t our granddaddy’s rasslin’ business any more.”

Do you think JR is right? Are faces and heels not as important any longer?
