Last week on Raw, Roman Reigns a.k.a. Big Dawg returned since “breaking” his nose and looked like a total heel. Triple H was facing the “lovable loser” Dolph Ziggler and beat him in a good matchup. Reigns who is supposed to be a babyface waited till the post match celebration to return and attack Triple H. It came off like a heel since instead of helping Dolph Ziggler beat HHH he just waited to beat the hell out of The Game. The WWE needs to make a decision with Roman Reigns and I think the smartest course of action would be to turn him heel. Since Shane McMahon vs. The Undertaker has a lot at stake I believe they will have this match end the show. The WWE won’t have to worry about WrestleMania 32 ending in boos at the new crowned champion.
Reigns as a member of The Shield was a badass heel. He didn’t talk and was able to destroy the WWE. At Survivor Series 2013 he eliminated 4 of the 5 members on the opposing team and was the sole survivor of his team. The Shield would eventually break up and since Roman Reigns got hurt in late 2014 he has had a tough time being a fan favorite. His return at Royal Rumble 2015 didn’t help him at all with the crowd being pissed that Daniel Bryan didn’t win.
Roman Reigns in my opinion proved at WrestleMania 31 that he belonged as WWE Champion after having a great match with Brock Lesnar. Reigns feuded with Bray Wyatt for the majority of 2015 and impressed me as a worker. I know the fans hate him due to his Cena booking but if the WWE was smart the heat he is getting would be great for him especially if he was heel. He could use the “Believe That” saying and it would piss of the IWC.
It seems like Reigns will win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 32 and that is what should happen. The WWE needs to make new stars and Reigns is the right guy to build the WWE around but as of right now he needs to be heel before he can flourish as a babyface.
