Can someone tell me the hype behind Reigns?

Note, it's not because I dislike him. If anything, I'd be truly glad an up and commer like him would be getting a great push. He is entertaining, but what's with this hype surronding him on here?

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.

Re: Can someone tell me the hype behind Reigns?

He is hyped because WWE wants him to be hyped... He will probably be the only Shield member to have 3+ Undisputed Title reigns if they really unify them!

2. The Undertaker
3. CM Punk
4. Chris Jericho
5. Triple H

Be prepared to be called a Reigns hater and an indy mark.

Regardless if I like the guy, that's uh.. really pushing it.

Yeah. Then again, there's alot more to see from Ambrose due to his Moxley past. And I was following Rollins when he was in NXT. He was one of my favorites in there.

I didn't see much of Reigns work before The Shield.

Re: Can someone tell me the hype behind Reigns?

what I like about him is that he seems like a natural badass... and for all the hype all of sudden I think it's because people are sick of the current product and want something new so this sudden push for such a guy really give us some hope..you know

Re: Can someone tell me the hype behind Reigns?

I'm just going to repost my thoughts on the cries for a huge Roman Reigns push within a year.


Quote:
He can afford to wait a little bit. Just because he's over doesn't means he's ready. I still think it's a better payoff to push Roman Reigns, yes, but let it be a steady kind of push that allows him to develop in the ring and as a character. Right now, at best, he's the breakout star of the Shield. Okay, but what about Roman Reigns himself? He's still a part of a bigger story, being the Shield, and not one that we as an audience has gotten to know. All we know about him is that he has a loud roar and his spears are awesome. Sticking a world title on him just because you don't want John Cena or Randy Orton to be in the title picture, doesn't do him justice. If you're sick and tired of John Cena and Randy Orton, then wouldn't you be more adamant to have basically anyone in that spot BUT them? What distinctive reasoning does Roman Reigns have to be a world champion? I can understand Daniel Bryan and CM Punk. They're both over with the crowd, can wrestle a good match, have a lot of charisma, and have been proven to be parallels to John Cena; highlighted with the Punk/Cena feud in 2011 and Daniel Bryan calling Cena a "parody of a wrestler". Those would be worthy candidates in my eyes. But Roman Reigns? I just don't see it. As long as he doesn't get buried or underutilized, he should be fine.

Re: Can someone tell me the hype behind Reigns?

Because he's a fucking badass, that's why he's hype.

The dude has a natural look of someone who wants to kick your ass. And shit, that roar.

Like clockwork, the turn against Reigns begins
I cant wait til he wins the title. The Reigns marks vs Reigns hater war is going to be delicious.

...But again, just going back to comparison, didn't Goldberg also have that look as well?

He does look like a bad ass, but then again, Goldberg also gave the ass kicker vibe look as well. Definitely agree with the roar though. Reigns is a special kind. Where when he does a roar, he doesn't come across looking completely stupid or out of place when he does it.

And it's not really a turn against Reigns, Your_Solution. I was never really behind the guy in the first place. The hype just keeps on growing on here, and I just thought I'd ask what the hype actually is built off of.
