lol wwe is literally out of touch, no amount of half assed booking is going to get Reigns over when he continues to fail at talking, just like his promo backstage before Owens came in an shit all over him
>>
Remember, this is a company that thought Batista vs. Orton would be biggest WrestleMania main event EVER

...in 2014
>>
>>789466

they also wanted Batista to be a face

but both of those guys had already proven themselves 10 years ago
>>
>>789450
> Sheamus fights valiently when being team up on 4 to 1, even eliminating a person before finally circuming to the numbers
> Reigns wins a 9 minute match before people could even settle in their seats
> Then goes on to spear a man who came out to congratulate him and let by gones be by gones posing no real threat
> Sheamus cashes in, but not on a entirely groggy Reigns and both guys get some good hits in
> Sheamus walks out champion
> People boo Reigns
Seriously, who is the one booking Reigns' top "babyface" run?

> Huuur, lets just repeat the same storyline as last year
Strangely enough, people don't like to cheer people who lose all the time. Sure, there's always the symbathy loss of being screwed off, but having it happen over and over doesn't win over anyone.
>>
>>789474
Poor Batista even told them it would never work.
>>
>>789480
Not that I condone Reigns being a needlessly hostile dickface, but the last time HHH came out to congratulate somebody for winning their 1st WWE World Title and Mr. MitB was in-play he formed The Authority

Also: it's Vince. It's ALWAYS Vince.
>>
>>789487
Then grab the belt and run away from the ring. No cash in for me plz.

Also, Dean Ambrose is a crap friend for not coming out to help after he literally just walked through the curtain. If he ran in, hit Sheamus and caused the DQ that would have been awesome. It would cost Sheamus his cash-in, piss off Triple H, rub some babyface reaction on Reigns AND lead into a Sheamus - Ambrose program, which I personally wouldn't mind.
>>
Reigns getting continually stopped from succeeding is just funny more than anything.
>>
>>789495
Running away from the ring? Sure, what a babyface action THAT is. My Hero!

> Dean Ambrose is a crap friend

Yes, out of the 2 remaining Shield brothers, it's Ambrose who is the worse of the two when it comes to having each other's back
>>
>>789480
Reigns has never lost cleanly aside from kind of sort of MITB cash ins, which themselves are inherently a bit dirty unless you pull the full face MITB.
>>
>>789497
I don't know why the WWE seems to forget, in the end the babyface has to win. You can't go from heel champion... to heel champion... to heel champion and have zero payoff. The babyfaces look like idiots and people will never get behind them.

>>789503
Well, okay maybe not run away from the ring, but no need to pointlessly spear the boss with your back to the entrance. Not just Shield either, look at Cena last year's Survivor Series, Ziggler had every odd against and he still refused to come out and help. He was more than willing to come out and celebrate though when he won the match.
>>
>>789510
WWE has broken moral alignments everywhere.

The babyface has to win...only problem is that WWE picks the wrong guys to be ITS babyfaces.
>>
>>789524
Meanwhile look at NXT. Bayley wins Women's Champion from evil heel - payoff. Vaudevillians beat the bullies of Dubstep Bros. - payoff. Finn Balor defeats Kevin Owens in the country that loves him. - payoff.

There's a balence in NXT that makes it so good to watch. In WWE the MitB briefcase just makes it automatic that heels will always win. I swear, if Vince was booking that Balor win in Japan, Finn would have beat Owens and Corbin would have came out, Regal would have made it a title match and we're back to having a heel champion again.
>>
>>789542
It's almost like NXT is a competent wrestling promotion not booked by an insane old prick or something
>>
>>789544
its not a wrestling promotion
>>
Remember when the fans booed a guy they were supposed to cheer, then instead of trying to force things, they went along with it, and he became one of the greatest heels of an era?

Seriously though they're fucking related and it still doesn't occur to them after a year of Reigns getting booed.
>>
>>789553
At least point, a booker with a brain would say have Sheamus have a celebration on Raw tonight and Reigns comes out with a steel chair and kills everyone. But I am willing to bet he'll come out, demand "Mu'h rematch clause" then get distracted by something as Sheamus clonks him over the head with the belt.

I could put good money on that.
>>
>>789553
Vince was dragged kicking and screaming into Attitude. He only did it because WCW nearly killed the company.
>>
>>789559
He was at first. But after he did I'm pretty sure he grew to enjoy his feud with Stone Cold.
>>
>>789558
A booker with a brain wouldn't keep putting Reigns in these situations where they're expected to cheer him for screwing up
>>
>>789565
That would explain why Austin got demoted to the midcard the year after WCW died
>>
>>789566
I've lost count in the amount of times something has gone wrong for him, but this is the THIRD in one year just involving Money in the Bank.
>>
Personally I'm not surprised he doesn't have a panic attack every time he sees a briefcase.
>>
>>789466
Are you implying it wouldn't have been?
>>
Well, well, well.

They are getting creative with these polls.
>>
When is the last time that a WWE crowd has cheered a face that wasn't an indy darling?
>>
Cena, Lesnar, Orton, Big Show are the four biggest draws in the company now Bryan is gone and at the moment they're all away. They're trying the best with what they've got and if that's Reigns and Sheamus then so be it. I wish everyone would stop hating Roman he really doesn't deserve it.
>>

Last night. Undertaker.

What fucking offer are they talking about?
>>
>>789699
Touche.
>>
>>789700
Reigns was given the offer by Haitch on the Manchester show to join the Authority and they would give him the spot in the finals without having to go through the tournament. Reigns said no (much to the Manchester crowd's booing).
>>

Rememeber when Vince constantly put Ryback against CM Punk for 6 months in the Heavyweight title picture.

What a fucking trainwreck Ryback was, injuring everyone he wrestles with because Vince thought having a MASTADON would be a great idea.

Because he is a bearded manlet and most neckbeards identify with him and think they will be able to get a wife as hot as his.

This happens every year except for that one time when Sandow was the briefcase holder.

I find it funny that Reigns has been the recipient twice in the same year but that could probably be him paying his dues since he isn't an Indy darling or spent ten years in FCW/NXT.

Someone tell Owens he's not wrestling in front of 20 people and doesn't need to try so hard to get smarks on his side. His looks get him enough support as is.
>>

Hahaha oh wow

CLASSIC CENA
>>
>>789778
I like it.
Also he lookes more spontaneously when someone botches. Most other guys than lookes like total idiots.
>>
>>789775
That was... disgusting. Jesus. And cunts will actually defend booking like that.
>>
To be fair, WWE screwed up Ramen Rules.
2013 when everyone was hyped for the shield and Reigns, they let Batista win the RR with probably the dumbest elimination ever, just because they promoted his movie.
And a year later when everyone came all over Daniel Bryan they let him get eliminated like a boring worker and shoved Reigns down everyones throat.
If Reigns won the 2013 RR the people might have liked him, even with his dull moveset and shit tier mic skills.
Nearly everyone liked Bryan and everything he did was shouting YES YES YES for 12 months straight.
>>
>>789853
It's not just his mic SKILLS, his gimmick is all wrong too.
>>
>>789853
Dude he was even less ready then
He was still a part of the Shield and shit
Can't believe people say he isn't ready now when people wanted him to win the RR in 2014.
>>
>they did not want the fans to boo him as the Champion
Is there any logical reason why WWE would rather go through all of this shit instead of putting the title on someone the fans actually like?
>>
>>789689
The guy(s) who runs the poll love to stir up shit with the mark population from the looks of the past polls
>>
How can Roman Reigns get the fans back?
>no "make him silent"
>no "turn him heel"
>no technical workrate shit
>>
>>789985
Absolutely nothing besides "be more talented".
>>
>>789990

Wow what a vague term. What does this even mean?
>>
>>789995
>Stop being shit on the mic
>Stop being shit in the ring
>>
>>789753
what?
>>
>>790007
But he isn't shit in the ring? I thought we've passed that point. He can be alright on the mic but he still stumbles a bit. His ring work is fine, I think he needs to worry about getting the crowd behind him and learning how to talk
>>
>>790007

>Stop being shit on the mic

You mean like over half the roster

>Stop being shit in the ring

He isn't. He botches way less than Ambrose and has a way more dynamic style.
>>
>>789853
Also, 2013 Roman was the Shield. He would have had Seth and Dean to help cover his flaws, and the popularity of the stable to push Roman better, had he won the RR and the title then.
>>
>>789775
what was the purpose of this?
>>
>>790017

They needed Cena to retain so that the unification match against Randy can happen without people thinking, "What if Sandow cashes in?"

Rock was the hottest non Austin face in the company. His pops from Summer Slam to Survivor Series were insane before they swerved him back heel
>>
>>789985
He has the Cena crowd, but he will continue to get booed at PPVs. Here is what I do:

1. Have the Authority force him to the bottom of the card (a few appearances on Main Event, low card SD, etc)
2. Have him lose a few matches to humble him, they can play the mental distraction card as a reason.
3. Slowly build him back up through the ranks and win the US title next year, defend it at WM and retain
4. Enters a MITB match but loses (recurring theme - humble him, it warms the crowd)
5. Have him tie a Battle Royal over the summer against like Cesaro
6. 2/3 Falls match at a PPV - 1st fall for the the grudge (Reigns wins) - 2nd for the US Title (Cesaro wins) - 3rd for the World Title contendership (Reigns wins)
>Wins title at Summerslam against a heel

The idea sucks but so do Reigns chances of getting over
>>
>>790025
I love that blonde. If she lost 10-15 pounds she'd be amazing.

>>
>>790062
not everyone that doesn't think like a smark is vinnie
>>
>>789553

he became one of the greatest heels (twice) because he was the rock. if you really think reigns can talk as a heel like the rock, make you hate him but at the same time, be so entertaining foh

>>789480
>>789503

You know, I don't think that a babyface necessarily needs to be a nice guy. Remember that two of the top three babyfaces in the company's history (the fact that I don't even need to name them says it all) were the sorts who would pick a fight with anybody and everybody, sometimes just for the sake of picking a fight.

A good face can also duck out when it's smart to do so, so long as they do it in such a way that they're getting the last laugh in the process, and it fits their character.

The problem with Reigns isn't booking. It's that people don't want *him* as champion. He's a terrible actor and a mediocre wrestler. The only thing that he has going for him is that he looks cool. The most ingenious plot that we've seen in over a decade would be floundered on Reigns.

He should spend a few more years as a singles mid-carder. If he improves to main event level, then great. If not, then he's just not cut out to be at the top.
>>
>>789766
Why is Kevin Owens such a humongous faggot?
>>
>>790039
Here's mine
>after TLC put him in a feud with Del Rio
>literally nobody likes ADR, you can have Reigns win the US title and will probably get cheered
>Cena comes back and goes after "his" US title, they feud through to Mania
>turn whoever the fans hate most heel, have them go over at Mania with Authority interference
>have the other guy win the feud at the next PPV

That way you keep him out of the world title picture, put him in a feud with a guy who smarks hate more, and have him hold a mid-card title to give him some legitimacy (which WWE likes to skip these days with their artificial pushes).
>>
>>790067
Be honest now: do you even remember the Batista vs. Orton match that happened on the go-home RAW that year?

No? Didn't think so. Because it was utter fucking trash.
>>
>>791655
A babyface doesn't have to be a "nice" guy if they have charisma or talent.

And even then, unless their persona specifically calls for anti-hero traits a babyface SHOULD be an aspirational role model.
>>
>>792282
Because he enjoys working schmucks like you
>>

you probably think "the crowd wanted him to win" the RR 2 years ago too, when it was just anti-batista cheers, not "omg how could they eliminate roman"

Why would you think that, friend :)?
