Despite this notion, WWE has broken it’s WWE Champion-mould quite often. Superstars such as Kofi Kingston, Daniel Bryan, Finn Balor, and CM Punk have had incredible runs as champion. But the list is not long enough when compared with the other group dominating WWE over the years. In a recent interview, current WWE Champion Bobby Lashley names two or three smaller guys that have the potential to be a world champion.

Lashley said-“One thing that you’ve got to take into consideration is this roster is fun because we have a lot of really cool people, a lot of really good matchups that I’m really interested in. I mean, you can go all the way down from the smaller guys in the Drew Gulak, I mean, the guy’s incredible. The Alis, the Ricochets, some of these guys are incredible, and these guys have the possibility of being one of those guys that can break the mold of the world champion and step up in there, in that world champion picture.”

Breaking the stereotypes

Despite having a great pool of talent, WWE’s decision to bring back legends to fill the most significant spots on a PPV shows how little they trust their roster. Vince McMahon‘s endearment towards big muscular figures has created a specific stereotype to be a WWE Champion. It’s prime time to break that stereotype from the history of WWE completely. Some mind-blowing talents in WWE can be huge WWE Superstars in the future.

The uproar of the women’s revolution that happened in WWE should be taken as an example of breaking stereotypes. Thanks to those tough decisions made by WWE in 2015, the division is a regular highlight. Poor booking aside, we’ve witnessed a change sweep across the WWE. Whether it’s in the breaking of stereotypes or more, in this case, change is for the better.
