It may come as no great surprise to most that Roman Reigns has a rather tumultuous relationship with the WWE Universe and once Reigns entrance theme hits seven times out of 10 he will be booed by the crowd. A prime example of this would the 2015 Royal Rumble in Philadelphia when the crowd destroyed Reigns throughout the night.
Why has the WWE Universe turned on him?
It appears that the WWE universe has turned on Roman Reigns for no apparent reason and any WWE fan will tell you “they can cheer for who they want” and this is true, but there doesn't seem to be any real reason for fans to hate someone they once cheered in the Shield so much.
Speaking with with The Kingston Whig-Standard to promote WrestleMania 32 Reigns spoke about his relationship with the fans and he too could not pick one reason for the constant booing from the fans.
Reigns had this to say on the reaction he gets, “It’s a tough one because there is no one answer. There is no one reason why someone would want to boo me. Maybe they don’t like what I wear, how I sound, maybe I did something to offend them”. The one thing that people who boo Reigns seem to all agree on is the fact that Roman Reigns is slowly becoming the next John Cena, being pushed heavily when fans don't seem to want it.
Roman Reigns won't change for anyone
This again is rather unjustifiable as Reigns is his own person, and he went onto say in the interview “For me, I can only continue to stay within myself and worry about the things I can control and the things I can control are, Am I healthy?; Am I showing up to where I need to be on time?; Am I here to perform and do my job?”. Roman Reigns shows up every week to put on a show for the WWE Universe in attendance regardless of the fans reactions.
Reigns knows he has fans
Reigns knows that there is a section of the WWE Universe that support him that will always support him whether nor not they are in attendance as Reigns told the interviewer “As long as I know the supporters are still by me, even if they’re not in the arena, I hear them on social media and I know they’re out there. If you’re riding with me, it’s going to be a good ride. If you’re going against me, we’re sorry for what’s going to happen next.”
So in the end all of this negativity is like water off a duck’s back for Reigns who now looks swiftly ahead to his match with Triple H during WrestleMania 32, in which he hopes to become the WWE World Heavyweight Champion and he will celebrate with his fans regardless.
