Question Roman Reigns - HATED by ICW - How long did it take before the hate came?

He was over at Royal Rumble - before Batista stole the show

But how long did it take before the hate came? 5 months? Before IWC turned on him?

It's a quick-fix business these days, you can be buried by IWC in weeks or months.

You don't last a year anymore.

So how long did it take before IWC turned on Roman?

My only problem with Reigns is he's going over people who doesn't need to go over. Rollins? Really that was unnecessary as fuck. And I still just can't see him going over Lesnar anytime soon, he's just not ready for it in my opinion.

I'd say it started earlier this year when he started being advertised as the leader of the Shield, even though Ambrose and Rollins are more talented. The Rumble reaction was more about people not wanting Batista to win, as opposed to wanting Reigns to win imo.

WWhen he appeared on live televison. I was like "OH MY GOD DEAN AMBROSE OH MY GOD SETH ROLLINS roman who?????? what is this piece of shit doing in this dream stable?"

But looking back, I started to hate him when he beat Seth and Dean in a triple threat in fcw by using only one move (we will see that again soon enough)

The minute somebody posted a news article claiming WWE were pushing him into Cena's spot and that he'll likely main event WrestleMania 31. Because fuck actually waiting to see how things play out.

Erm he was not over at the Rumble. the crowd would have been hot for Del Rio that night simply because it was the alternative to Batista ( and indeed did cheer him at EC).

I started to go off him at the Survivor Series when he basically destroyed everyone and it confirmed everyone's fears that they were gonna push him too hard too fast.

Re: Roman Reigns - HATED by ICW - How long did it take before the hate came?

I personally really like Roman Reigns. But his booking is extremely lazy to put it mildly. Instead of making an interesting character that people can relate to they are making him an unstoppable superman character. Yeah how original and fresh.... He seems like a cool ass dude but they need to let him be himself more. It is very easy to see how forced his character is. I don't want a Cena 2.0 because I think Roman Reigns is too talented for that crap.

Re: Roman Reigns - HATED by ICW - How long did it take before the hate came?

He was hated during The Shield by some too. A lot of people were jealous that he was getting pops from receiving the hot tags and was the only guy out of the three that got cheered as a heel. Those people hated him then and still hate him now. That's the first group of people.

The 2nd group of people are those who don't hate him as a Talent and can see he has all the potential in the World but hate WWEs handling of him. His fans know he's still a rookie but WWE seems to refuse to acknowledge that fact and are pushing him far too over-bearingly even though with his charisma he doesn't need it at all. It also doesn't help that he has an awfully dull, monotone and boring character. Just compare his WWE promo work to some outside Interviews like this



and you can see why he shouldn't be cutting awful promos left and right.

I mean holy shit how hard is it to make somebody with his awesome voice cut semi-decent promos? Even if he's green and not the best at delivery there's no excuse for turning him into "Boring, Bland, BUH DAH INTENSATYYYY Geek #82346290", he should at least be able to cut passable promos as long as he gets a better direction. He gets the most wins yet he has the blandest, most basic booking on the whole roster, it just makes no sense.

Re: Roman Reigns - HATED by ICW - How long did it take before the hate came?

The moment he became Cena 2.0, getting a massive push just because he got "Da Looks", the 5 moves of doom, going over Rollins clean on live tv, his horrible mic skills, and always winning sum up all the points as to why the IWC hate his guts except for a few marks and casuals
