Enzo Amore, Sasha Banks and WWE’s 5 Most Controversial Superstars of 2017
September 30, 2017 - WWE
Roman Reigns is so argumentative that he inspires a form of pro wrestling paranoia we would hear from an unnamed farming city in a UFO movie.
“WWE mutes a sound when he creates his entrance!”
“WWE feeds him lines during his promos!”
“WWE is bringing behind The Shield as a ploy to get us to hearten for him!”
“The aliens are entrance to get us!”
OK, a final one isn’t a paranoid censure from a wrestling community, though we get it.
Reigns will always be a post of debate for wrestling fans—both hardcore and casual—to digest. He represents a intersection between WWE truth and witness protest.
There’s no doubt a three-time WWE champion is a polarizing figure. He was a initial babyface to win Pro Wrestling Illustrated‘s “most hated wrestler” award.
He gets booed usually as most as he gets cheered, if not more. Sometimes, WWE goes out of a approach to have a fable validate him after a hard-fought match, that usually creates thing worse since he’s already an determined star, and carrying John Cena lift his palm following a detriment is transparent.
Reigns is a fascinating box investigate in WWE and pro wrestling in general. Most wrestlers adore him. Some fans hatred him. He gets a biggest greeting out of anyone in the WWE locker room. He’s a star. He’s a talent. He’s a pariah. He moves merchandise. He’s controversial.
And that’s because it all works. Because, as Eric Bischoff once famously said, debate creates cash.
