There are just people, who will complain about anything, Roman is by no means bad and that style fits him.
But that's the thing, people say he's only getting any attention for his look, well isn't having a marketable look a wrestling attribute? If he excels at that, and has good stage presence, the rest can develop over time. Mic skills is not an issue guys like Benoit and Lesnar had successful careers without having any mic skills.He somewhat reminds me of Batista.... gonna get pushed because of his looks. No in ring or mic skills whatsoever.
Stop that shit. You know full well why people dislike it, so stop with the "hurr you only want small flippy guys" crap.Nothing is wrong with it. He isn't slow, he doesn't botch anything, and he does what he's built to do, so I don't get why people hate him because he's not a 5'10 submission specialist.
It has nothing to do with not having respect for other people's wrestling styles. A lot of people on this site give praise to Sheamus, who wrestles the same kind of style.It seems a lot of people bash Roman Reigns because he's no in ring technician, but why is that the defaulted style of wrestling that the IWC respects more? I mean its another wrestling style just like high-flying, and brawling, so why is the technical style regarded as you being a good wrestler?
Roman Reigns is good because he wrestles his style good, he's not meant to do things like a Daniel Bryan or Chris Benoit. So why don't we give enough respect to the other wrestling styles? I tend to like badasses like a Triple H, Batista, Shield, Lesnar, Benoit(at the time), and Roman Reigns fits that bill. It's like what Batista said, "where are all the real men of the WWE?" We need a guy like Roman Reigns to carry the future as a dominant badass.
No, because it's true.Stop that shit. You know full well why people dislike it, so stop with the "hurr you only want small flippy guys" crap.
When in the history of wrestling has a tag team existed where the big man DOESN'T deliver devastating moves to close the match? Has this not been the formula for big guy/little guy teams since creation?Why am I getting bored of Reigns? The fact that he seems to have nothing beyond his five moves of doom is a problem, especially if this is him BEFORE his face singles run, which tends to strip movesets even further down to the crowd popping signatures. It's not about who has the most moves, but who uses them the best, and I don't feel Reigns does. He tends to come in at the end of a good match solely to get the spear in and get the crowd pop, or he just spams two moves over and over like a video game character.
Even next summer is too soon. He has not been wrestling long enough to warrant one that soon. WWE should slow things down with him, right down. The right way to build him up so he is anything beyond a flavor of the month is to establish him as a solid mid card talent. Let him expand and hone his skill set. After he is capable of consistently solid matches, introduce him to the main eventI personally don't think he's ready for the inevitable push to the moon that he will be getting soon. I'm hoping they wait until next summer because I really don't think it will pay off if they push him for WM31. Knowing WWE, they will do just that though.

He's young, he's a rookie, and he has loads of potential. I like Reigns, but I don't love him. The problem is they're pushing him NOW, not in a year. If he was a midcard champion, having a bunch of singles feuds and getting better, that'd be fine. But they're already expecting him in the main event this year? Too fast. He's 28, he has probably 15 years left in his career. There is no need to rush it.
Nothing more needs to be said :clapIt has nothing to do with not having respect for other people's wrestling styles. A lot of people on this site give praise to Sheamus, who wrestles the same kind of style.
It's a combination of basically everything in regards to Reign's in ring skills. His storytelling isn't exactly stellar, his timing tends to be off at times, he's not very creative, has a in ring style that's very difficult to mesh with, he's similar to Kurt Angle in that right now he's sticking to the same routine formula thought not really anything like what Kurt did in the ring, which is start out with an advantage, be dominated, and then come back in a series of predictable moments. At least with Cena after you see him go through his shoulder block, powerslam and then five knuckle shuffle, you at least don't really know what to expect after this point besides his opponents countering his AA attempt.
Another weakness of Roman that I've noticed is his moveset, which is his biggest problem in my opinion. More often than not when WWE has their sights set on a certain wrestler to be one of the bigger players in the company in the future, they will give them a moveset that stands out compared to others. That's why guys like him, Bray Wyatt, Daniel Bryan, Sheamus and Antonio Cesaro have a lot more big impact and noticeable moves and a moveset that is drastically different from most wrestlers. But Roman's doesn't exactly fit his character in my opinion and it just shows his weakness on the ring.
I mean look at what he does. He has a spear, a superman punch, a jumping clothesline, Samoan Drop, and a dropkick on the apron. This list is so random I feel like they literally drew these out of a hat and said "okay, this is Reign's moveset". Out of all of these moves, the only ones that actually sound like the kind you'd give to a powerhouse-type of wrestler is the Spear and Samoan Drop. While I don't mind his Superman punch, I have a hard time figuring out whether or not that's supposed to be a high impact move of some sort. The biggest cringe worthy move however is his apron dropkick, which has quickly become a very annoying part of his matches. It was very cool and unexpected the first time he did it, and I actually liked it, but it quickly got old considering how they had to set up for the spot in every match he's had by falling on the bottom rope in predictable fashion, and now he's not even kicking them with both feet but rather just one. Just that small difference makes the move look a lot less impactful than before, where both feet hitting his opponent made it look like a much more deadly move.
I don't understand why they don't give him a moveset that focuses more on things like moves that involve the use of his elbows or something. I feel like that if anything is something they could work more with. Give him a moveset all around that stands out in its own unique way, rather than give one of the most random movesets I've ever seen in my life. He will improve as time goes on, he's a former football player who got signed by WWE and hasn't had nearly the same amount of time in pro wrestling that Rollins and Ambrose have had.
Regardless of his age and experience, I do think WWE pushing him the way they are pushing him right now is a big mistake. They need to hold off on this and wait for him to truly improve in the ring before he's ready to take the next big step and become one of their major players. Otherwise people are going to turn on him quickly.
