Because he's "real". Apparently you can be as boring and worthless as possible, as long as you can fight for real, amongst all these fakers. It's not about entertainment anymore. I miss when pro wrestling was pro wrestling. *sigh*
Lol, yeah seems actual talent in wrestling is undervalued. It feels like we're in the Twilight zone when a guy that's spamming the same 2 moves is getting cheers.
Seth Rollins, AJ Styles, and Kevin Owens are among others in the main event. I have no doubt that Nakamura, Samoa Joe, and Bobby Roode are going to get their chance in the limelight when they hit the main roster. In this day and age where Cena, Orton, Big Show, and others aren't in the focus of the show other than once in a while, wrestling talent is becoming the focal point more and more by the week.
Back on topic, there are lots of threads where users voice their frustrations about this. Even then, it's probably because he's a part timer.
Because smarks jerk off to how "LEGIT!!!111!!" he is.
Although let's be real, plenty of people crap on him on a consistent basis, not to the extent of Reigns/Sasha/Cena etc but he's far from universally loved. Most people on here complain about his boring suplex city squash matches. And no doubt people will be complaining when he goes over Goldberg.
