    Is this guy face or heel or what? I'm watching 2016 Royal rumble and Hayman and Stephani seem to want him out, what's the deal?

    He is awful and despite years of attempts to get him over the fans will not budge on him.

    They stiffed him at Royal Rumble 2014 just to make Batista happy ... it was no1 bullshit!

    He got it in 2015 but by then the damage was done :( Reigns was booed when he won.

    There is a reason he is back to being US champ and they brought back The Shield. One more attempt at trying to get him over.

    He broke (or matched) a record recently when he won a title and they were congratulating him on social media

    The fans are a mixed bunch I guess

    Been busted for drugs.


    Was likely on them when he won the Royal rumble.

    Should have an asterix next To his name alongside the ultimate warrior and Royce Gracie

    He’s someone everyone likes until he gets remotely close to any title.

    Then he is just terrible to the point you can’t even, you will have lost all ability to even.

    I wrote this in 2016, but it gives you a feel for where it all comes from.

    Perfect thanks man, good work there. My assumptions on him we're some what close but I guess I don't understand why he'd be pushed so hard with such obvious rejection. Also I thought Cena was loved by all? I didn't realize until the "you both suck!" chants lol.

    Cena started becoming hated by all since his Y2J feud in 2005 I want to say, not sure.

    Edit: or it was the Edge 2006 feud where he super cena’d Edge out of his first title reign.

    He's basically Vince's pet project and Vince is a stubborn old man.

    His Superman punch set up and delivery annoys me.

    He’s good he is smooth and works a good match BUT he is stuck with the Cena baby face who is really a heel Schtick he could get the fans onside if he went full heel but Vince is an idiot sometimes and insists on this weird way of doing it.

    He also has a very limited move set which works if you are Goldberg or in Japan but it doesn’t in the WWE. Ambrose is the same but he’s dynamite on the mic even though he has to read dull lifeless lines.

    That might've been true 15 years ago, but he'd get embarrassed in NJPW if he tried to go there today.

    I don’t agree and a lot of the top guys don’t either. Jericho sings Reigns praises all the time. He would have to adapt his style but he could hang for sure. I’m a Reigns hater by the way. I hate his character and move set and whole look but the guy knows his way around the ring.
