What makes people think that they need to create a "I hate Reigns" thread once in a week?

No Symphy At Allll.

His NXT promos were absolute TRASH. I was there to witness them. Lol.

Because apparently Vince won't book a face in a non-underdog way.

Re: What makes people think Reigns will be any better as a heel?

All the best guys become successful babyfaces after a spell as a main event heel. Being a heel let's you bring out more of a personality. He's definitely not babyface material at the moment, so is there any other alternative?

Vince McMahon wants him to be the top babyface right? So turn the guy heel. History has dictated (Austin, Rock, Foley, Undertaker, Batista, Cena, the list goes on) that if you're a charismatic, talented worker - with the correct booking (Triple H I'm looking at you) - who can draw heat, eventually the fans will get on your side. The crowd will gel with him eventually and that's when you turn him face and attach the rocket to his back to the top. Just don't mess with his character (unfortunately this is where it all seems to go wrong these days).

Re: What makes people think Reigns will be any better as a heel?

The problem with turning Roman heel is you're pandering to a small part of the crowd much like Cena he sells a ton of merchandise and youd be giving all that up just to get a portion of the crowd whos booing to appear to be following the plan. Personaly Id love a Reigns heel turn but I can see why WWE is reluctant to do it.

Because they think WWE will allow him to be a badass, but he's probably going to be treated like a complete joke and he will lose all the time like every heel.

It really makes no difference at this point. He's a boring, failure of a top guy. And the storyline is now simply "What are they going to do next to continue forcing his mediocrity on the audience?" instead of what it should be.
