Ask yourself this question:

Is Roman Reigns really that bad? Im not a fan boy or hater, I've just been taking in alot of the reaction this guy gets and wonder is it really really that bad of a character to be getting the hate he gets. Even the cena hate wasn't as bad as this.

So ask yourself: Is Roman really that bad?

Re: Ask yourself this question:

Yes, we don't want another Cena and that's quite clear it's what they are trying to do with Roman

Re: Ask yourself this question:

Reigns isn't THAT bad, but he doesn't warrant the push and the protection he gets in my opinion. Very good in the ring, good look, but generally below par on the mic and is totally unsuited to his role and character on screen. A lot of the hate isn't necessarily on Reigns himself either, more how the WWE is insistent on using him.

Re: Ask yourself this question:

The superman face of the company push is that bad. Just don't believe there should ever be just one guy that gets everything and is treated better than everyone else for 8-10 years. In this day and age that will always be rebelled against.

Reigns really isn't that bad. He is a pretty good worker, has a marketable look, and when he is allowed to have an edge is actually decent on the mic.

What's funny is he's better in an Austin type role where he just doesn't give a shit and does what he wants, but they try to shoehorn him into the Cena role.

Re: Ask yourself this question:

He's terrible.

At least Cena had great mic skills and ld wrestle when he had to.

Roman is just garbage.

Re: Ask yourself this question:

Reigns himself really isn't that bad, his booking however is very bad.

Re: Ask yourself this question:

He's not a bad worker. His charisma is all in his look and he does not know how to connect with the audience in any way other than acting like a dick head. He would be a great heel. That promo with Michaels last week was proof he needs a massive heel run.

It's just hilarious that Vince will shit all over a guy like Cesaro for "not connecting", but is so in love with Ro-man who doesn't. At least people were showing up with Cesaro Section signs at one point.
Mankind Rick likes this.

Exact same thoughts. This isn't even "in a nutshell" it's the whole argument. I hate that WWE is insisting Roman is the GOAT and he's overcome so many hardships.

I have no hate at all towards Roman. Most wrestlers could be better on the mic, so it's not reigns exclusive. Had WWE not backed Roman like Cena, I think Roman would still be at this point in his career (worthy to face Taker, NOT retire if that's the plan).

Re: Ask yourself this question:

He's not bad; he's just a bad face. At least, not now. You can't FORCE fans to like someone.


DAMN RIGHT
