"Does everyone hate me?"

A little while ago, I did an article detailing just why Roman Reigns is one of the most beloved sports entertainers in WWE today. There I detailed the rise of the Roman Empire and discussed what makes The Big Dog so popular among the casual fans as well as younger WWE audiences.

In that same article, I also touched upon the other side of this coin: why Roman Reigns is one of the WWE superstars disliked by quite a few hardcore professional wrestling fans.

It is no surprise to see him emerge onto the stage to a cacophony of boos, but what exactly is it about Mr Reigns that annoys the more serious members of the professional wrestling fanbase?

Why is that he isn't universally loved? Why is more than half the WWE Universe so dead set against accepting him as the new face of the company? Well, that's what we're here to discuss.

So, without any further ado, here is our list of 5 reasons why Roman Reigns is one of the least favorite WWE superstars today:


#5- His annoying move set


God damn this move
God damn this move

Hands up if you want to gouge your ears out everytime you hear Michael Cole scream out "SUPERMAN PUNCH!!!!" in the single most annoying tone any professional wrestling commentator has ever used in the history of the business. Honestly, a large portion of Roman Reigns' move set is just plain annoying.

He has the aforementioned Superman Punch. And, while his Spear is actually pretty good, the preceding 'Oooaaa' theatrics have doomed that move to an eternity of hate. Other than that, he has very little to write home about.

If you want to make yourself more popular, Roman, you need to work on making your move set have more impact. At the end of the day, the Superman Punch is only going to do more harm than good.
