Why boo WWE fans Roman Reigns

"I'm still here because you can't do your job"


John Cena: "John Cena versus Roman Reigns— this is WrestleMania worthy, but Kurt Angle, I like your swag man, you're ready to do it, I'm ready to do it, they're ready to see it, we 're gonna do it at No Mercy live on the WWE Network! This— this is the reason I came to Monday Night RAW to be in this ring, face to face with a man who says he runs the yard! With the Big Dog! With THE Guy! And if you don't believe that, just ask him, he'll tell ya. And why not? Because ever since Roman has stepped foot in a ring, he hasn't just been The Bluechip Prospect, Roman Reigns has been the bluechip prospect that has been protected against anyone and everyone that steps in his path. And then there's me. And we've been through whole heck of a lot together and you know me, and I know you, and you know I got zero F's to give, and I am the one dude ain't no protection from! And that is why I want to fight Roman Reigns, because I know that Roman Reigns don't wanna fight me. "

[Cena signs the contract. Roman Reigns then comes into the hall]

Roman Reigns: "Let me get this right— It's all good Memphis, I am just trying to check my facts here— so I am scared to fight you? I don't wanna fight you? That's what in your head? You may not understand this, because probably no one's ever told you this before, John, but you're not as big of a deal as you think you are. And this is the fact - I don't care what you've done or what you plan to do, I've done something you'll never do. I retired The Undertaker at WrestleMania. So maybe it's not that I don't wanna fight you, maybe I just don't need to. "

John Cena: "You're right - no he's right! He's right! You don't need to fight me, you are the high exalted Roman Reigns. You are the Big Dog, everybody back there knows it! Everybody out here still kinda trying to figure it out. You see Roman, I am what you would call a polarizing figure - every week there are people that cheer 'cause they stand for what I believe in and then there are people that boo because they don't, and then every single week you can audibly hear those people so desperately wanting me to change the content of my character, maybea a little heel turn. But with you, it's different. I don't know if anyone's ever told you this - they go back and forth with you, because when they look at you they see what I see: a cheap ass, corporately created John Cena bootleg!

This— [YES-Chant] this chump right here, he ain't the guy, dude, you're just a guy. A guy trying so desperately to fill shoes that you never will. Listen carefully young man. I am not The Undertaker. I am not a battered veteran at the end of his career with a bad hip. I am the fastest, strongest and hungriest that I have ever been in my entire life. And the reason you won't sign that, is because you know if you do, your Roman Empire— "[Make a gesture that blows something away.]

Roman Reigns: "He did it again. He's the king of this. He can take anything and spin it, that's what he does. But it blows my mind that he stands out here and he runs his mouth and he is talking about ya ' ll boo him because ya'll want him to be a bad guy? They boo you, because first of all you suck. "

John Cena: "Hey, according to them so does he, but that's okay he won a gold medal."

Roman Reigns: "Just shut up for a while, how bout that. And second of all—"

John Cena: "Go ahead find it, go ahead. I'll wait."

Roman Reigns: "Shout your mouth, John—"

John Cena: "It's called a promo kid, and if you wanna be the big dog, you're gonna have to learn how to do it so go ahead. See ya fourth wall!"

Roman Reigns: "The reason why they boo you is because they see right through you. You're a phony! You're a yes man, who can learn how to do anything! Or be anything! So if you wrap all that up , you're just a fake bitch. Are we talking now, ain't we ?! You're hearing me now, ain't you ?! Not only that, he's a part timing fake ass bitch! And I'll be damned if I don't bust my ass Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday every single week so you can hang out on on Today Show. Then jump on his big ol 'bus and hell maybe I'll come to a WWE show if they pay me enough. But what you're really gonna do, John? What you're gonna do, huh? You're gonna jump off that bus with that big ass shovel. That big shov- that big shovel . That's what you're gonna do. And you're gonna bury as much young talent as you can. Because that's what you do, right? That's how you stay on top of the mountain. You'll do anything, you're just a backstabbing shark, but the thing is reason why you don't like me, what irritates you about me, you can't bury me John. You can't touch me, hell, I think this is fitting, I am the one guy in the WWE that John Cena can't see. [Makes the "You Can See Me" gesture] So now tell me this, why would I want a lesson myself, my legacy, my bloodline to be the next John Cena, when I can be the one and only Roman Reigns. "

John Cena: "You done? You done?"

Roman Reigns: "Go ahead, spin it."

John Cena: "You see, you see, because Roman Reigns is a fool. Roman Reigns is a damn fool. There's an old saying 'it's better to keep your mouth shut and have people think you're stupid, than to open it up and prove 'em right'. You of all people, you walked down here and use the same pathetic excuse that every other single person before you has done. You, with all your gifts and all your opportunities, you have the gall to blame me ? That's fine, that's fine big dog - congratulations. It took you five years to cut a halfway decent promo, but now I'm about to shrink you down to size. Okay, so everybody back there thinks I got this mythical golden shovel, that I got these magical powers that I can control everything and keep everybody's faith. Dude, I can't tell if you're blind or stupid - look and listen, they hold the keys, they always have, they always will.

But, you gotta blame me, fine I have been hearing that record for ten years and I ain't tired yet. I am strong enough, I've been called a lot worse by a lot tougher. But you actually believe that I'm a shark, that I hold everybody down, that I swim to the top and keep ‘em underwater at any and all costs. I'm a level with you homie: I haven't main evented WrestleMania in five years. I was the opening match at SummerSlam. I was honored and privileged to earn the United States Title at this stage in my career and use it as a beacon of opportunity to introduce new superstars to the WWE like Kevin Owens and AJ Styles, just to name a few! You took the US title as a demotion. And you stand there and blame me, fine, I blame you. I am still here because you can't do your job! [Murmurs from fans] When it comes to this yard, you probably haven't learned it yet. There's only one rule: step up or step aside, and over the years, there's been few to step up, but nobody to ever keep up. And then I finally hear about this one guy, THE Guy, THE Roman Reigns, The One that can keep up. And now I look at you and I listen to you. You should be ashamed I'm a part timer, ‘cause I can do this part time better than you could ever do it full time."
