Roman Reigns. Where do we even start with the Big Dog of the WWE? He seems to be the most hated professional wrestler on the planet for smarks, while he is second only to John Cena when it comes to popularity amongst casual WWE audiences. What is it about him that divides opinion among fans?
Whether you love him or hate him, there is no getting past the fact that Reigns is one of the biggest superstars on the planet today. At the relatively young age of 32, he has done it all.

So, why exactly is the Roman Empire held in such high regard by certain sections of the WWE Universe? Well, that's what we're here to discuss today. So, without any further ado, here is our list of 5 reasons why Roman Reigns is one of the most loved WWE Superstars today:
#5 His look
Hey, it's 2017! It doesn't really matter what a WWE Superstar looks like, right? After all, the likes of Kevin Owens and Samoa Joe have ascended to main event players with their less than stellar physique, while AJ Styles is the biggest name on the roster despite his relatively small stature. Well, that's not quite the case.
The simple fact of the matter is that for a significant portion of the WWE Universe, a wrestler's look matters just as much if not more than his wrestling ability. They're the collective version of Vince McMahon's obsession with big muscled men. And, when it comes to having a typical wrestler's look, there are few better than Roman Reigns.
With his massive frame, long hair, bulging muscles and ring attire, Roman very much looks like a top guy and that goes a long way in establishing your popularity when it comes to more casual fans of the WWE product.
