    “It’s about telling a story.”

    Yes, and the story was horrible. Reigns did nothing to get people behind him. Where was the badass Reigns from last year that eliminated 12 dudes? The fact that the final 3 Kane, Show, and Reigns left ZERO doubt Reigns would win. Reigns need help from Rocky to win? NO ONE HAS EVER NEEDED HELP TO WIN A RUMBLE. How are we supposed to cheer this dude if he needs help from someone else to win his battles for him? If the Rumble itself was better, people wouldn’t be AS mad about Reigns taking it.

    Even if we keep it Kayfabe, Booker doubting the chances D-Bry has makes no sense, atleast D-Bry can WRESTLE. Roman can’t wrestle, and has one super man punch (the sucka punch of MMA) to use against a former UFC Champ and experienced amateur wrestler.  In Kayfabe Roman has far less of chance, D-Bry has a win over Cena, Cena beat Lesnar, in Kayfabe he has a chance.

    Reigns winning is probably only half the actual problem. The other half is how the entire match unfolded. It was bad, and not understanding that is a problem. Everything was done for the reason to keep heat off of Reigns, it was transparent and the fans absolutely did no appreciate it.
