Never had beef with Goldberg, since he looked like he murdered someone whenever he speared them and that while he was a straight-up powerhouse, I liked his surpringly fluid superkick and his occasional usage of the rolling legbar and the juji-gatame.

Once we see more of Reigns, I'm certain that I'll have the same feelings of him like I did on Goldberg: Fun to watch because of his intensity and his finisher looking like a certifiable method of execution as well as both his in-ring and mic work being decent enough for a main event player.

The dude has a natural look of someone who wants to kick your ass. And shit, that roar.
Basically. I like him, but I don't like the hard-on monster push he's getting.

Re: Can someone tell me the hype behind Reigns?

For me, the only shield member that is in the least bit impressive is Dean Ambrose because he has displayed amazingly fluid mic work and story telling ability.
Seth Rollins doesn't have the size or move-set to be impressive and his mic work, no matter how hard he tries comes across as forced, rehearsed, and something off a script.

Now onto Roman reigns... he is clearly the least talented of the group on the mic. If he had any sort of talent in that area, they would give him more time to show us that. So far he has been throwing one-liners and and really corny (and clearly scripted) sentences. To me that says they don't want to give him freedom to give a heartfelt speech or address to his audience or opponents. I have yet to be impressed by anything he does in the ring. He is the biggest guy in the group, but he is far from what I would call a monster or powerhouse. He is no Batista or Lesnar.

So given all these points, I do not see the hype in reigns at all. I think the only real reason he is even mentioned here is because he is related to the Rock, who unlike him has more size, strength, and mic work that you can't even begin to compare (which is probably most important if you're not doing something ground breaking in the ring with your actions).

The Shield are great, the only person in the WWE that deserves a push besides the Shield is Cody Rhodes.

Re: Can someone tell me the hype behind Reigns?

I have to see his singles run first for me to have an opinion. I don't want a big push which may do more harm than good. I don't know right now.

Re: Can someone tell me the hype behind Reigns?

He hasn't impressed me. Also it's too soon to be saying he will go over Cena clean, he nor The Shield are anywhere near as popular as CM Punk or Daniel Bryan when they were heel with the crowds being seas of their merch or signs. There was a Roman Reigns chant during SS but only because he was being super booked, and Jojo and Summer Rae also had chants. Let's see if he can even get over before claiming he'll do stuff like beat Cena clean.

GOAT

Re: Can someone tell me the hype behind Reigns?

He is popular because in an era of Punk, Bryan, Rhodes, Ziggler, etc....all talented guys mind you, Reigns actually comes across as a legitimate ass-kicker. Ziggler squeals like a little girl and Rhodes looks more like an Abercrombie model than a WWE wrestler. Reigns is a bad ass, or at least looks that way on TV.

Re: Can someone tell me the hype behind Reigns?

Considering how little experience he has, his work over the past year has really surprised me.

Re: Can someone tell me the hype behind Reigns?

Reigns has the size looks and presance to be a star. Why is he so hyped here? Id go with because he came in with two IWC favorites. Reigns got some hate from some here at first but, he started to outshine Ambrose and Rollins fairly quickly that put them in a bad position of I'm trying to convince people Ambrose is amazing and Rollins is exceptional but this Reigns is impressive. So they kinda latched on. As far as a fast vs. slow push for Reigns I think its a matter of timing either way you ve got to hit it at the right time

Reigns seems actually safe to work with though, unlike Goldberg.
