    why are fans booing reigns anyway?? seems pretty baseless to me.
    Wrestling fans aren't exactly the sharpest. The contradiction is incredible.

    Reigns represents the establishment - the guys in charge handpicked this big, tanned guy and pushed him straight to the top regardless of ability or fan feedback.

    So, to stick it to The Man, the fans are booing the handpicked guy and cheering for... Triple H, the guy who picked him and is in charge...

    WWE fans hate triple H for years and years of burying talents and putting his ego over. He finally puts over New talent and the WWE boo the new talent. Honestly the fans will never be happy.

    HBK, Foley and Steve Austin coming out was awesome, absoslutely loved it. The Rock and Cena was an excellent touch.

    HIAC went just as expected, but enjoyed that none the less.

    The street fight and the main event were rather disappointing, especially the former. Really thought Ambrose would win! As already mentioned the crowd killed the main event.

    Flashback to the 2014 Royal Rumble, when WWE fans cheered Reigns and would literally have murdered somebody if it meant he won the Rumble rather than Batista.

    I don't think this boo culture is going anywhere Tbh. Such a shame because it ruins otherwise good matches.

    I didn't like that at all, New day and Nations (pretty good tag teams) finished the match only to be squashed by old timers.

    Pretty much none of the new talent got over.

    Just seen the clip of Shane diving off the top of the cell, I don't really keep up with wrestling much these days but I can safely say that Shane has more balls than 99% of living men. How he keeps walking away from these things after a decade of doing them is just insane.

    I'm just pointing this out because when I looked at WWE's Facebook page to see comments, one of the top ones I saw was complaining that all the young guys went over the old guys.

    These are fans who were moaning about WWE not investing in and pushing new talent.

    If I was Vince or HHH reading that I would ignore them too.

    As someone who doesn't really invest a huge amount of time into wrestling these days, I don't really care that much about New Day et al, so seeming them overshadowed by legends from a time when I watched (maybe not so much Mick Foley) was a joy to behold.

    News for Raw tonight... and it's the 4 words you dread... Roman... promo... via satellite...

    Anyway, most awkward moment of WM?

    AJ Styles being unable to take a Codebreaker properly, twice?

    The Snickers ad?

    HBK twerking?

    Becky being a third wheel who the crowd don't love as much as Sasha and is clearly just there to take the pin/submission?

    Sandow gets a massive pop but he's just a body for Shaq to eliminate in the pose-off?

    The Rock and his flamethrower?

    The Rock pretends he's about to have a match, but it's just a Rock Bottom?

    Cena gets an Austin pop in front of a WrestleMania crowd that have spent years trying to tell us they hate him?

    Steph's monologue?

    The switching between regular audio and the ref's/ring's audio to make the boos sound quieter (+ Steph awkwardly louder)?

    HHH and Reigns just getting the match out of the way, they and the commentators ignoring the elephant in the room?

    WWE dubbing a Smackdown cheer over the pin of the main event title match at WrestleMania... and it doesn't even sound right?

    Rubbish Mania which will be remembered for Shane jumping off the cell and not much else.

    Match of the night was the women's triple threat.

    RAW tonight will offer a few swerves, I imagine. We've seen Ziggler cash in, Paige debut, Goldberg debut in the past.

    Looking forward to it. I expect we'll see Samoa Joe.

    HHH didnt and doesnt pick Roman or anyone elses push. He cant exactly make anything happen, without Creative going over it and Vince approving it
