Top 5 deafening boos in PG era
Booing and cheering is part and parcel of a WWE segment. For every wrestler who gets cheered, there is an opposite wrestler who gets booed. Most often, it is the heels who desire to get this adverse reaction. But in the modern era, even babyfaces get booed more often than not. Roman Reigns and John Cena are top babyfaces, but crowd often receive them with boos.
Most often, boos are the result of excellent work from the heel. NXT member Tomasso Ciampa even muted his theme song during his entrance to embrace the heel heat fans have towards him. But in a lot of occasions, the crowd boos to express their displeasure towards a particular wrestler, or even the product itself.
With all that being said, in this list, we will be taking a look at 5 of the loudest boos WWE has witnessed in the PG era.
