WWE was determined to get Roman Reigns over as "the guy" in WWE by 2016. After the WWE Universe refused to get on board with Reigns' monster WWE push in 2015, officials had to change plans at WrestleMania 31 by having Seth Rollins leave the event as WWE World Heavyweight Champion by cashing in his Money In The Bank contract.

In the minds of senior WWE officials, this gave them an extra 12 months to continue to get Roman Reigns over with the WWE audience and position him as the new face of WWE. This involved Reigns feuding with members of the McMahon family such as Vince McMahon, Stephanie McMahon and Triple H over the World Heavyweight Championship.

This led to Roman Reigns challenging Triple H for the World Heavyweight Championship in the main event of WrestleMania 32. Despite a capacity crowd of 101,763 in attendance, the match largely fell flat.

Once again, the WWE Universe wasn't fully on board with Roman Reigns as the new top babyface in WWE. Despite the best efforts of Vince McMahon, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon, fans weren't happy with being told they had to like Roman Reigns by the corporate WWE machine.

Therefore, despite a decent match between Roman Reigns and Triple H, the crowd was largely disinterested, with sections booing when Reigns eventually defeated The Game and became the World Heavyweight Champion for the second time.
