You push a guy to the top, some feeling like the push is forced and the expected baby face gets the jeers. I remember back when HBK was being given the reigns in his Sid and Vader battling days, he had many nights of the guys against him and the girls loving him.
Orton became stale after a while and struggled to remain the most interesting face.
I think we are unsure where Reigns shines most because he has yet to get to that point, but moments like his interview where he called that lady (forgot her name) "Baby girl" starts to enter him into "the girls like him, the guys hate him" category. He has the good looks and physique and one thing I notice the male WWE crowd doesn't warm up to very well are the poster boys.
Daniel Bryan seems the complete opposite as he isn't the typical "it guy" that someone like Triple H likes to push. So its easier for everyone to be behind him.
Do you guys see Reigns being thrown down that route? Or do you sense another edge in him that will keep the full crowd on his side (i.e. Jericho, Austin, Punk, etc).
I actually see Rollins doing just as well. Ambrose I feel will always have the crowd's full cheers or full boos.
