Re: Can someone tell me the hype behind Reigns?

He's got a good "main event" look.

Good moveset

I have yet to see or hear him talk.......ever. That is a problem.

Also I question how he will do without the Shield.

Re: Can someone tell me the hype behind Reigns?

The guy has that badass aura about him, he performs the spear very well, he has the looks, he doesn't speak much and sells moves well. He has the tools to be a main event player when his run with the shield ends, which i hope is not anytime soon: wyatts/the shield WM30.

Re: Can someone tell me the hype behind Reigns?

He has no ceiling in this business. He's got the look, the IT factor and he can go in the ring. I do think he needs a slow but steady push though because he's still raw in certain aspects. He's still got a long way to go on the mic before he becomes the guy.

I'm a huge fan and think he is your next mega star but they shouldn't rush him. Let him get better in the aspects he's green in and he'll be the guy soon enough.

I think he's solid.

Better than Rollins but nowhere near Ambrose on the stick.

If I come off as ignorant, I guess I'm sorry? But let me just put two and two together from how I see it.

Goldberg is pratically hated nonstop on here. He did a pretty good spear though, and he yelled random shit.

Reigns is praised nonstop on here recently. He does a pretty good spear and also yells random shit.

Goldberg didn't really do any amazing mic work. Reigns, unless someone can show me, from my personal viewpoint hasn't done anything amazing on the mic either.

Goldberg has a limited in ring moveset. Reigns also has a limited moveset [? Again. I definitely could be wrong. Going off what I've seen of the guy.]

He does have charisma, but then again, it seems all the hype is coming from the spear and the yelling afterwards. I just want to know where all the hype is coming from surronding the guy.
Not really sure what you want people to tell you, Guru. You watch the same matches everyone else watches. It's kind of like watching a movie and hating it then asking people why you should like it. No one is going to talk you into liking something you have already set your mind to disliking. Seems like a waste of time.

I have to agree 100% here once ones mind is made up you can't change it so what was Guru wanting the answer to the question is obvious Reigns combination of size look and presance is where the hype comes from. Some here are implying he doesnt deserve the hype or push but I think its obvious he's proven he does he's improved steadily in the ring what and delivered on everychance he's been given what more could you ask?

I haven't really set my mind into disliking him. I really have no opinion on the guy. I feel for him like I do for Goldberg right now.

He does a mean spear, and he comes off like a hard ass. I'm just not seeing the rest. I don't see the booming character, but he can be exciting with the trio. I'm not seeing the great moveset, AT ALL. That's the thing I have to raise my eyebrow at.

"He has a great moveset." Like..? Uh..?

I just think the hype for this guy is so big, but I honestly feel like he's going to be flavor of the month. I don't think he should be, because some points here proved he has alot to go for in the company.

As I mentioned before, there's definitely room for improvement AND he has been improving. He does have the look. I guess I'm still not understanding the hype right now, because the guy barely did anything.

He looks bad ass. Yes. He spears really good.. but I mean, is that enough to carry the damn hype so many people are giving him? I guess so. I just feel there's more we should see from the guy then just jumping the horse already.

I dont understand this lack of moveset Reigns already has the Samoan Drop bodyslam his finisher from NXT superman clothsline punches headbuts not to mention the spear. Many big stars Hogan Cena Austin Warrior and The Rock never used a versatile moveset. With all Reigns has he's at least at Warriors level. Now I know some here will say Warrior was horrible or Cena 5 moves of doom but its been proven throughout history that moveset or lack thereof isn't very important in whether or not a wrestler becomes a star. Id argue that ring psycology aka the ability to tell a story in the ring is more important than movrset Cena Hogan Austin and Rock all used great ring psycology

Never understood the fascination with that guy. He's a crappy wrestler and looks like a goofball. But....dat Indy cred, I guess...

EVERYTHING about Goldberg is better than Reigns.. You practically are burying the kid by mentioning the 2 in the same sentence.
