Can you imagine the backstage heat a wrestler would get if he said that Roman was a bad guy to wrestle with


(Not that I think he is bad)

I remember Cesaro mentioning Cena/Orton was overdone and then suspiciously losing a lot of matches

So they'd probably suspiciously lose a lot of matches

MinibarMatchman posted:

it's telling that when the Shield broke up, Dean and Seth both changed most of their attire and their theme music, but Roman kept the same flak jacket and overall boring theme.

make him heel and maybe find a new finisher that isn't literally just a loving jumping punch. teach him something like croyt's wrath or some kind of floatover brainscramble ddt or a tiger suplex, gently caress, anything but the superman punch

How about a spear

Roman is good but poorly booked and if they'd turned him heel when people started to turn on him they'd have been able to turn him face when he gets over as a heel.

He won't get over as a heel though because he is boring as gently caress and turning him heel won't suddenly make him interesting.

He is so boring that at the end of his terribly mediocre PPV matches the crowd is exploding for the big spots because they know that soon the match will be over and something interesting will happen.

The overly scripted spots where the fans cheer because it was a well planned spot then they go back to sitting down and booing Roman. I mean I forget he is so over that the wwe has to edit out how much the fans love him.

Roman is only good because his matches are structured well, which is definitely not something good wrestlers have any control over.

The fans not liking him has nothing to do with his ability and everything to do with his booking being an ongoing feud between the audience and Vince McMahon.

Roman is just a casualty and a rubbish babyface.

Sounds like if they structured a match where people would boo those spots they'd be doing pretty well.

His match against Braun was one of the worst structured matches I have seen in a long time, and the big spot in that match was lame as hell. Not to mention Roman barely sold it at all.

People booed Roman like no one else last night. By far the biggest negative reaction as a whole, possibly overshadowed by one guy who really hated Brian Kendrick.

Literally any wrestler would get cheered for the same spots Roman typically gets cheered for, because fans will largely cheer for people being put through things.

Yeah it's not like Roman has these super neat signature spots or anything. It's usually just move through thing. Anyone else could do it and still get a pop.

If they truly want people to not boo during Roman's entrance they could just give him Carmella's theme. I imagine deathly silence would be worse though.

I wonder if Stephanie can get through the whole upupdowndown episode without going "I'm a girl that's playing video games, isn't that totally wild?" Most hilarious outcome would be if she's legit amazing at a hard as gently caress game. "Do we have time for me to do a deathless Battletoads speedrun right quick?"

Whenever Stephanie and anything to do with popular culture come up I remember her telling Max Landis "I loved ur vlog". So I expect it to be a lot more along the lines of showing mom how to use the controller while she talks about how things aren't like Pac Man anymore.
