On a recent episode of The Ross Report, Jim Ross decided to focus on the reaction Roman Reigns continues to get from the wrestling fans.
Ross compared the boos and jeers that Reigns receives to the “You Suck” chants that Kurt Angle hears during his entrance or the “Cena Sucks” chants that echo throughout an arena when the 16-time champion appears.
It’s almost like when Angle comes out, it’s, ‘You suck!’, ‘Cena sucks.’ I think people think it’s the thing to do and they’re not hip or cool if they don’t do it as evidenced by the crowd looking to do a hostile takeover in Pittsburgh [At Extreme Rules].
I think it’s a topical thing and people think it’s cool. That’s the best answer I’ve got for you. I don’t know why it would be, and nobody can tell us why exactly it is. We’ve all got a theory and that’s all it is.
Does the WWE Universe’s reaction to Roman Reigns stem from the need to be a part of a group? Do fans dislike him simply because it’s the cool thing to do?
It’s a possibility, but many also believe it has to do with the forced push from back in 2015.
What do you think? Is Good Ol’ JR right? Let us know in the comments below.
