He’s not a good guy. He’s not a bad guy. He is simply the guy, especially after his United States Championship victory against Rusev at the Clash of Champions. Even though there are fans that cheer for the Samoan Superman, Roman Reigns may not be in the majority when it comes to favorites. Of course, Reigns is the epitome of tall, dark and handsome. However, looking past the physical attributes, there is more to The Guy that meets the eye.
Despite the tough position Reigns has been put in, he overcomes it all by continuing to push through against the grain. Reigns has put on great matches over the past couple of years. While that works in his favor in terms of his work ethic, it’s not enough for today’s fan. What works against him is that he’s been a victim of bad booking and super pushes gone wrong. It is clear that the company rushed Reigns while he is still growing as a character.
Over time, some fans have come around and seen past the push he’s received. However, there are others who still aren’t going to buy in. Reigns is struggling to get over, and it will continue as long as he is heading in the current direction. Regardless, until it happens I can point out why there are fans who indeed love Reigns.
