I've been thinking about this for a bit now, why is Roman Reigns being booed? I'm not a fan of Reigns, but I don't hate him. He clearly has the look and is decent enough in the ring to be the main guy in the WWE. However, the reactions he is getting at WWE events by the crowd are incredibly negative. On John Cena's worst day, he at least had 20% of the WWE Universe behind him. Roman Reigns has people that find him attractive behind him and that is about it. They buy all his merchandise, thus he is "The Guy". Is it Reigns' fault that he is being booed out of every building he steps in? I don't think so. I think the blame lies somewhere else.
For the life of me, I cannot figure out why the hell they took the title off Reigns. He was finally over with the crowd and the WWE decided to screw up everything. The WWE has cornered the market on messing up storylines, unfortunately they can get away with it because TNA absolutely sucks. The WWE tried to turn Reigns into an underdog. He lost his title in the Royal Rumble, which was completely unfair because he was facing 29 other Superstars. He had to go through the evil boss, Triple H. The entire world was against Roman Reigns. You see, that works for guys like Daniel Bryan because he doesn't look like a Greek God. Roman Reigns is a freaking adonis. It is impossible to view him as an underdog. He needs to be a badass and just kick the living crap out of people. He also needs to talk a lot less than the WWE is having him talk right now. It just doesn't work. He should be a man of few words and just demolish people. Of course, that would be too easy. The WWE has to have these ridiculous storylines and 25 minute promos every week that bore everyone to tears. Now, Vince McMahon and the WWE are saying that the crowd is passionate about Roman Reigns. That is the way they will try and write off yet another total misreading of the WWE Universe in the way they booked Roman Reigns. They somehow took the surest of things in Roman Reigns and made the crowd hate him. Bravo, WWE. Bravo. Now that Seth Rollins is back, he will get cheered and Reigns will continue to get booed out of the building. Which is all well and good, until you realize that the WWE was shooting for the exact opposite reaction with both Superstars.
