So why all the hatred for Roman Reigns from the WWE Universe? Sadly, Reigns, is starting to fall under the John Cena category. Push him hard, whether the fans like him or not and piss everyone off.
This past Sunday's Royal Rumble, was a huge example of this. As soon as everyone's fan favorite, Daniel Bryan, was eliminated, it was obvious that Roman Reigns was going to walk out of the rumble the winner. Considering Reigns has been talked about winning the Rumble for the past 9 months, I'm still not quite sure how this was a surprise to the WWE Universe. Granted, I too wanted Daniel Bryan to win, but once Bryan was eliminated, it was clear as day that Roman Reigns would go onto Wrestlemania 31.
Let's take a look at Roman Reigns' career from last year's Royal Rumble to the present. I find it funny how at last year's rumble, how much the fans loved Roman Reigns and they wanted to see him win over Batista. And then fast forward to this year's Royal Rumble, Roman Reigns, played the part of Batista, and nobody wanted to see him win the Royal Rumble.
So that brings me to my original question that I asked at the beginning of this blog, why all the hatred for Roman Reigns from the WWE Universe? The WWE Universe feels Roman Reigns does not deserve a World Heavyweight Championship match at this time. My opinion, I think Reigns can and will be a great main eventer in the company, but not yet. I think they should have held back Reigns from winning the Rumble this year, built him up better throughout 2015 and then have him win the 2016 Royal Rumble. And I honestly hope all of this negative heat towards Roman Reigns that he has picked up doesn't ruin his career.
So after all of the negativity, the "bullshit" chants, the "we want a refund" chants and the #CancelWWENetwork trend on Twitter, hopefully WWE can pick up all of the broken pieces and put things back together correctly for Wrestlemania 31.
