Roman Reigns On Fans Booing Him & If He’s Bothered

WWE Championship
For the second consecutive year, Roman Reigns will be challenging for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania. To help promote Sunday’s card, Reigns’ spoke with the Orlando Sentinel and below are highlights.

Reason for the fans consistent booing?

“I think there’s a few different reasons why. You could name a bunch of them. I don’t think we could actually put a finger on one and say this is the reason why. Typically if you hear the boos, it generally is grown men my age and I’m not really in this business for the grown men. (laughs) I’m in this business for the families. That’s what we are; we’re a PG product. We’re a family-based product. We’re here to entertain families and give them enjoyment. If you’re a 30-year-old man and you want to flip me off at a kids show, then, hey, like I said, you paid your money but just be careful because you could get kicked out.”

Does the fan’s negative reaction mentally effect you?

“There’s nothing to complain about as far as reaction, because we’re storytelling here and not everybody is going to have the same opinion about the story. My only concern is you’re setting a bad example. I’ve seen grown men flip me off and there were children right there. There’s a guy who got kicked out of one of the shows because I’m pretty sure he was drunk. He’s going nuts, screaming and cussing, acting like a fool when there’s children right next to him. That’s something we have to keep in mind. A lot of times, these pay-per-views and Monday Night Raws, they’re on school nights so it is a lot more of a grown-up feel. I think if you pick and choose and just think with logic, everything will be all right. That’s just one thing, you have to be concerned with the example we’re setting. At a show, I’m not the only role model. These kids are sitting next to these other grown-ups and they’re seeing how these people act. That’s just a reflection of what they see and they probably act the same way.”

    I’m liking this guy more and more. Go ahead and boo if you want, if you act like an ass you should be tossed.

      BOOOOOOOOO

    I like how he handled this question. I once went to a RAW years ago, where a man was cussing about John Cena, in front of my nephew. It was his birthday, he came to see John Cena. I’m all for booing, and I’m not a sensitive guardian about my kids hearing cuss words from other people, but it was just in poor taste. There were kids all around him with Cena shirts on. Booing is a part of the show; cussing and arguing with little children is kind of pathetic to do as an adult.

      My son is 12, he’s loved Cena for years. Myself, I like what he stands for. Hustle, Loyalty, Respect. Good message for kids. Same thing happened at a house show. I looked at the guy who had his son with him and asked him how he would like it if I told his young son there was no Santa. Same thing. Don’t bash a kids “hero” just because you can.

      How did I know I’d find you here Dorathy lol

      • Dorathy

        LOL! :)

    The fans who cuss and swear are in all likelihood just mad that the product that once catered to them in their childhood is no longer targeting them and is instead focusing on the new generation kids. Basically, the adults are just pissed that they’re all grown up and can no longer connect with the product after they knew how everything functions behind the scenes. HHH said that in an interview this week that with the internet there is not many “Didn’t see that coming did ya?” moments. And somebody told me the product insults his intelligence today, Ofcourse it does, you’re all grown up now. But when you were a little kid like those in the audience, you were just as dumb for believing the storylines the company produced because you thought everything you saw on your television was legit, and you continued to believe it till you got onto the internet and heard of a word that said “kayfabe”.

    • jeff

      Spot on Fat Owens. Well said.

    • IM MAD JOHNSON #NewNation

      No, fans are mad for having to pay to see a guy do 3 moves

      • Joseph Lisnow

        at least Cena has 5 moves.

      • Fat Owens Fat

        I agree. About time the company let go of Brock Lesnar. He’s suplexed enough!

        • Joseph Lisnow

          he’s still one of the top draws.

          • Fat Owens Fat

            Well John Cena draws too, even those who come to boo him every week pay for their seats no? I thought the issue was having limited movesets here?

  • Scott Burns

    Alot of adults grew up in the attitude era, and it wasn’t catered to kids. Triple h said in an interview a while back saying the wwe is like a buffet. There’s something for everyone

  • Crazy_Victor

    Well said.

  • IM MAD JOHNSON #NewNation

    Just came here for the comments ????? #LOOKATTHESHEEP

  • Mizanur Mowla

    Roman Reign you should’ve admitted ppl hate you or boo you because you simply don’t know how to wrestle neither you don’t know how to talk on microphone #fact

  • Z….

    Honestly, great responses from Reigns, at least on the first question. I like how he pretty much just told everyone that isnt a kid, that still likes wrestling, to grow up. It really does get out of hand sometimes though. I’ve seen stuff at Wrestlemanias. I went to TNA Bound for Glory in 2010, and while we were waiting to enter the stands in the arena, there was a guy wearing an orange John Cena shirt, and pretty much everyone threw stuff at him. Granted, maybe he should have thought about that before wearing a John Cena shirt to a TNA show, but it was pretty over the top lol. I wont lie though, when Jeff Hardy turned heel that night, I was sitting in like the 3rd row behind Tenay and Taz, and was pretty much right in the view of the turnbuckle Hardy celebrated on. I looked to my left, and in the row ahead of me, and saw some little kids. I had already anticipated the Hogan part of it, but when Hardy turned heel, I couldnt help myself. I started laughing and yelled, “YES! Make those little kids cry!!” lol That was probably over the top too, but in that instance, it was pretty funny
