I'd like to preface this thread with some thoughts on the Rumble match:- Roman Reigns was almost unanimously booed, followed by resounding apathy. There was nothing but indifference upon entrances of veterans or old performers who've been around for more than 5 years, including Jack Swagger, Mark Henry, The Big Show,Goldust and Kane. (Chris Jericho being the only exception, as a part-time veteran/legend). The faces were all booed:- from Ryback to Titus O'Neil. The Miz was a douchebag, dork, and a chump in 2007, and he still is now. Not that there's anything wrong with it! Chris Jericho's gait up to the ring reflected much dignity and brought to mind how much of a seasoned "performer" he is. Dignity! Chris Jericho is still awesome and the resounding applause upon his entrance reflected that. The audiences are sick of the same old same old, including veterans entering year after year(Big Show and Kane), and "strong, big men" like Titus O'Neil and Ryback. The recurring and emphatic "AJ Styles" chants proved that. Also, they cheered Sami Zayn, apparently. Kevin Owens is awesome. The fans love him even though he's a heel, which is when a really brilliant heel like Jericho or Owens does exactly what should evoke a negative reaction..eliminate the "good guy" or "fan favourite". The AJ Styles mimicry Owens did after eliminating him was brilliant. I don't know who was booked to look like a bigger chump, Bray Wyatt and company, or Brock Lesnar. Why the hell didn't Lesnar unleash a "tempest" on Bray Wyatt after being illegally eliminated by the Wyatts? He just retreated calmly? That's just incongruent with Brock's persona. So HHH is the new WWE WHC. I for one am a bit happy because it's the one thing that felt right in a severely crappily booked Royal Rumble match. I had expected him to win unjustly or just quickly, but he gave a pretty solid performance. Also, his presence for over 10 minutes and interaction with new superstars like Ambrose and Wyatt, as well as Ziggler just showed how seasoned guys like HHH and Chris Jericho are. The Reigns elimination is something we've seen many times and yet it was brilliant. But..where do they go now? It's clear after the Rumble that Reigns just doesn't get cheered and they've done just about everything they could do to make the audiences cheer for him, by way of putting him up against The Authority who are pretty much the most despicable thing on TV. Such booking only works when the audience/people love the said wrestler, like Daniel Bryan and CM Punk. Actual underdogs. It hasn't worked for Reigns. Are we going to see HHH being cheered on the next many Raws leading in to Wrestlemania? I sure as hell don't see Reigns being cheered over him.. Also, even though I'm curious to see HHH as champion, I can't conceive how they're going to make the HHH-Reigns program interesting. HHH is one of the best ever, on the mic and in the ring. He's got Vince and Steph, and the LON. Roman Reigns has nothing but awkwardness and "I got screwed", and once again, no cheers to back it up. Daniel Bryan on the other hand, had entire arenas chanting... So I ask you, what do we expect now, in the next many weeks leading to Wrestlemania 32?
