Re: Roman Reigns experiment needs to end. The biggest pops at the Rumble went to the Indie darlings and Lesnar

Until they change his retarded entrance song and his looks nothing is going to change. Rock didn't become Rock until they changed his gimmick/looks. Seriously, whenever Reigns theme hits you already want to puke, it's just fucking stupid, it doesn't pump you up, it has no flow, it's not catchy, it's just stupid. Especially the ending, it's just boring and when people hear it they think about THAT Roman Reigns. Change his theme to something that hypes you up, take that stupid vest off of him, he's not the shield anymore, change his looks. By the time he's in the ring and starting to talk it's already too late, people will boo him no matter what, so his personality is not even the issue.

If Cesaro wasn't so amazing people would boo him too because his whole gimmick and his theme is arguably the worst in the WWE. It all starts with the entrance, you have capture the fans from the very first second. If they don't like your gimmick or the theme you come out to then you better be as amazing as Cesaro if you want to survive in the WWE. Even that guy can't get a push because the WWE doesn't give a shit about him, they don't want him to be the top dog. So give him a shitty entrance song and a boring gimmick and bad matchups with guys that can't wrestle.

A lot of us, myself included, really don't give a shit about how big or small someone is. I care about being entertained.

WWE is like a comic book or a video game in the sense that these are fictional characters battling it out. I don't give a damn what they look like or how much muscle mass they have. That isn't the main factor in their "kayfabe wrestling skills." Some characters are stronger than other characters. Some guys have better techniques. Why doesn't Bo Dallas use the F-5? It's the strongest move on the roster. Because this is fucking wrestling, and these are fictional characters.
The only time most the roster is entertaining is when guys like Reigns and Strowman are using them as lawn darts.

Believe it or not, Reigns doesn't look half as menacing without the shield gear.

Re: Roman Reigns experiment needs to end. The biggest pops at the Rumble went to the Indie darlings and Lesnar

I'd legitimately much prefer seeing Bray Wyatt and the Wyatt Family take on Triple H and the Authority as the big WWE World Heavyweight Championship feud over Wrestlemania season. It'd produce a better story and probably a better match at the end of it all, too. And a better title reign when Wyatt holds the gold.

Wyatt is just such a better 'anti-authority' figure than Roman Reigns. Because anyone with half a brain and an internet connection knows just how much Reigns isn't anti-authority but is their absolute golden child that they hand-picked for massive success beyond the point of reason and beyond the point of his own limits.

They haven't grasped the fact that they failed Roman Reigns and the fact that they continue to try and make him the star while fan favorites and the more deserving are either kept in the mid card or used to put him over.

When those crowds are at events like the Royal Rumble and Wrestlemania, probably the two biggest PPV events WWE has... yeah, it kind of matters that the crowds there will boo him. Sure the ratio of crowds that actively boo him to crowds that just blandly go along with everything favours the latter, but when he's getting reliably booed at big-name events it kind of holds more weight in peoples' minds than the other lamer crowds that give him mid-card level cheering.

If your big name, chosen golden boy mega-face is getting booed at the Royal Rumble for the third year in a row and will probably get booed at the Wrestlemania you're setting up to be his big shining moment of glory... you've still got a pretty major problem.
The biggest and most important crowds are the ones that are booing Reigns. WM, SS and RR. That is a very bad thing.
