At this point, the WWE Universe is split on the push Roman Reigns has been receiving over the past few years in WWE.
Reigns has been subject to the “John Cena” treatment from the WWE crowd ever since he became a main eventer in WWE. While most fans boo him relentlessly from arena-to-arena, some loyal fans cheer for The Big Dog as well. Much like Cena, Roman has received the classic “Let’s go Roman” “Roman sucks” chants as well. Reigns even gets booed at the Hall Of Fame ceremony.
All this seems to confuse Monday Night RAW Superstar Bobby Lashley, who returned to WWE in April, 2018 and got the opportunity to work with Reigns. In a recent conference call with GiveMeSport‘s Alex McCarthy, Lashley explained his confusion on the division among the WWE Universe in regards to Roman Reigns:
“It kills me to be out in the ring with somebody of his level and the crowd be divided as to whether or not he deserves to be in the position he is – and I don’t get it. He has the look, he’s a great athlete and he’s a great in-ring performer.”
Upon being asked which young Superstars impressed him the most, Lashley called Reigns “phenomenal” but then went on to name guys such as Elias, Braun Strowman and Finn Balor. The Dominator also seems to be a big fan of Apollo Crews, who according to him feels is underutilized and hopes WWE finds something bigger for Crews in the near future.
“I hope they find something for Apollo because h has so much untapped potential.”
