Examples of fans turning on certain wrestlers

Was just on wwe's social media pages and it's crazy seeing fans hating on Kofi now when 4 months ago they were all on the "Kofimania" hype. Any other examples ?

Re: Examples of fans turning on certain wrestlers

I feel like I have to point this out every week. Listen to me carefully.

They are not the same fans.

Do you understand me? They're not the same people. When somebody that you don't like gets a push, you start complaining about them, because you don't want them getting a push. You did not hear these people as much at the beginning, because Kofi hadn't done anything yet. Once he won the title, people started loudly opposing it, and the longer it went, the louder the opposition got.

I can point you to specific examples of people like Clique who are Kofi fans, and they're still Kofi fans, and they still support this reign. I, on the other hand, opposed Kofi from the MOMENT that he got this push. People who know me will attest to this, I was NOT on the Kofi bandwagon. I'm still not. This is pure fantasy. It's selective hearing.

Kofi fans are not as loud, because there's nothing to complain about. Kofi haters are louder, because there's plenty to complain about. Read between the lines. I didn't support Kofi in February and I resent being called a turncoat. Kofi wasn't world title material in February when he won that gauntlet and he isn't world title material in September, I didn't turn on shit.

The list of people the fans haven't turned on is much shorter.

There are MILLIONS of wrestling fans. Millions of haters, millions of fans.

What do you mean "where are these haters coming from?". Why would anybody hate on Kofi prior to him winning the title? He was a midcard geek for 10 years.

Lacey Evans and Jeff Hardy are my most hated wrestlers on the roster. Every time they come within the vicinity of a push, I scream, I rant, I feel like pulling my hair out. I haven't mentioned Jeff Hardy in months and I never talk about Lacey Evans anymore. You know why? Cause they're not DOING anything. Conversely, all I do is whine about the misuse of Samoa Joe. If they put the Universal title on Joe I'll shut the fuck up, because they did what I told them to do. Kofi fans have nothing to complain about, this is a miracle run for them. They never imagined that Kofi would win the belt at all, let alone that he'd keep it basically THE WHOLE YEAR.

I feel its inevitable. For example the reason kofi got here is because fan interest. I remember around November last year you couldn't say anything bad about becky

People who bitch about the product are much louder than those who praise it.

Fair point. I guess that debunks the "wwe never listens to fans" since there are different fans with different opinions

Re: Examples of fans turning on certain wrestlers

Well, they don't listen to the fans that will get them to draw casual fans and start healing this product, that's the problem. They don't listen to the fans that want mic skills, charisma and character, they selectively pick out the overness for the guys that are athletic and jump around the ring like idiots.
