Kurt Angle is a beloved babyface in the eyes of the WWE Universe, despite the fact that he's invariably greeted with 'you suck' chants every week. Paul Heyman has had a tumultuous relationship with the fans but has been such an integral part of the WWE landscape, that the crowd has begun to love him dearly these days.

Which brings us to the events that transpired on RAW this week. Brock Lesnar essentially bullied Paul Heyman and delivered an F5 to Kurt Angle right before the entire WWE Universe. At this point, the audience was convinced that he was not on their side.

Is it any wonder then that the crowd began to root for Roman Reigns during the events that transpired? Brock Lesnar is the clear heel in this program.
