Re: Backstage news on WWE's main goal for doing a feud between Evolution and the Shie
The WWE knows that Reigns is still really green in the ring, that's why they paired him with two really experienced guys like Rollins and Ambrose. Rollins has said it himself that a big reason why The Shield came together is because the WWE wanted them to help Roman Reigns improve. That being said he doesn't have to be amazing in the ring to really get over. We all just spent two weeks celebrating the Ultimate Warrior's legacy and his matches 9 times out of 10 were horrible. Personally I want to see Reigns keep improving in the ring but more then anything I don't want him to become John Cena Jr. where everything he does is just cringe worthy and cheesy.
For the Reigns haters out there, honestly you should hope that Reigns faces HHH at Summerslam for 2 reasons.
1. HHH just put over Bryan at Wrestlemania. I have a hard time believing that HHH is going to lose at both Mania and Summerslam. It just doesn't happen. Don't be shocked if HHH actually wins the Summerslam match between him and Reigns to make him look strong again.
2. If Reigns is as bad as some people are thinking, then Reigns vs. HHH will be a total flop. HHH just had one of the best matches of his career with Bryan, but I don't think he will be able to carry Reigns for 15 minutes unless they rehearse the match in entirety beforehand. and even then that may come off poorly.
IMO throw Reigns to the dogs and see how it goes. He has been in developmental since 2010 and on the main roster now for 18 months. The Rock began training in 1995, was given the IC title in 1997 and the WWE title in 1998. If Reigns can't put on a solid 1 v 1 match with someone like HHH after 4 years of wrestling, then he may never be able to.
