Re: Have smarks turned on Balor?

How can you turn on a non-active wrestler?


DAMN RIGHT

Re: Have smarks turned on Balor?

Turning nah I never bothered with NXT much but I saw him wrestle live against Sheamus at a House show last year. I wasn't interested at all checked promos of him and they were even worse.

If his in ring ability is what makes him so special than I'm not seeing it because for sure it isn't his mic skills.

Plus that Demon stuff not feeling it give it to someone else they might actually be able to pull it off. Creative didn't help either tbh.

Re: Have smarks turned on Balor?

Some people didn’t like him from the start.

My response, who cares? The same as Sasha Banks, until the hatred is vocalized in a live setting, it doesn’t mean a thing. And I've yet to hear a moment where he got booed when he was supposed to be being cheered.

Re: Have smarks turned on Balor?

People turned on him in NXT because of his lackluster title reign on NXT and he got pushed too soon on the main roster. Got the title on his first try when other's have failed to get it on their first. You get pushed that hard and too much on Raw despite just being called up, given the main roster spot. What did you expect some fans would feel? Happy about it? It's opposite of that.

Re: Have smarks turned on Balor?

I can definitely see smarks turning on Balor a few months into his return. This is why they should pair him up against Reigns to avoid fans turning but also get fans behind him.

Fans are already behind him you are just suggesting pairing him with Roman because Roman is completelly unable to get the fans behind him and only stay relevant when Vince is molesting the fans by inserting him into the main event against actual fan favorites.

Despite to your claims to the contrary it is Roman the one who needs people like Balor and Owens, not the other way around.

Why do people on here take offense to statements that are clearly aimed at a specific group or specific trends? It's not like the OP specifically said "why did ShadowKiller turn on Balor" the OP is clearly talking about the fan base as a whole, and those in the fan base that tend to stand againsy anyone being pushed.

Re: Have smarks turned on Balor?

I was never impressed with him, I always thought he was bland, despite the cool look he has sometimes with his demon attire.

Re: Have smarks turned on Balor?

I'm not Balors biggest fan at all but I thought he phoned it in a lot in nxt and was capable of a lot more than what he did. I thought a better debut for him on main roster was to go after a mid card title alongside Styles/Anderson/Gallows but WWE completely fucked that opportunity up.

On the plus side I'd take him in main event over Vinces love toy. But ultimately I want to be entertained on the mic, in the ring and story so for me AJ, Wyatt, Owens, a Rusev, Y2J hell even Strowman will be 10000x more watchable to me than Balor or Reigns. However I'd rather see Balor over Reigns as a face everytime.
