This. A delusional and egoistical guy turned into the "hero" by the machinery of the WWE. The commentators must talk good about him, he must be in all the posters, he receives unlimited title matches and his time is always billed as the most important. He is beaten 90% of the matches but then wins with the four moves of doom. He buries all the young stars that one day could overshadow or threaten his position, but always in a way that makes him look like the good guy despite all the crowd knowing is just hypocrisy and the company forcing us to love him. I even could see the referees cheating for him. He will continue to be the guy of the corny jokes and the colourful t-shirts.
In other words, take what the fans already hate of him and take advantage of it.
