Re: **WWE Raw/Smackdown Viewing Thread**

"Moon-push this guy with a strong wrestling bloodline" also isn't really much of an example of displaying a uniquely good eye. The fact that he stuck with it while trying his best to bungle it can just as easily be attributed to going on tilt and wanting to stick it to his own complaining fans as much as it can be attributed to having a good eye.

Vince deserves very, very little credit for the Reigns thing finally panning out.

Possibly unpopular take: many people could've been pushed like Roman for this long and reached where he's reached and farther. This was just an exercise in brand building over many years and finally finding something that makes him "popular".

I don't know about unpopular, but I completely agree. There is a significant segment of the wrestling fan base who will cheer for anyone booked as unbeatable. It feels good when the wrestler you root for wins, so a lot of people will root for the wrestler everyone knows is probably going to win almost every time.

The true greats are the people who can get fans to root for them even when it appears the bookers are never going to let him win.
