Roman Reigns may be a three-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion but he still hasn't gotten himself over with WWE fans yet.
Vince McMahon and co. may think that he is the future face of the WWE who can carry the company forward, but the fans they cater and perform to every single day clearly do not, which anyone can see by the amount of boos that he receives when entering any match or even saying anything in a promo.
WWE fans simply cannot stand Roman Reigns and Bret Hart knows why, as the WWE legend detailed in a recent interview. The reason? WWE's terrible booking.

Bad Booking Yet Again
The WWE Hall Of Famer recently spoke with Notts TV News about the way the WWE are booking Reigns and he wasn't the most sincere about it.
"I think Roman Reigns is actually a hard working, decent wrestler and he [has] got potential. Whether he [has] got the potential to carry the company, I don't know," Hart started off as saying.
"It doesn't seem like the fans are into that too much, but I think a lot of it is bad booking, just really lousy booking."
No Chance to get over
Hart really went in on the way Roman was booked, slamming nearly every single major decision that was made for the American-Samoan's character on his road to WrestleMania.
"When I look at WrestleMania and look at how they built him in the Royal Rumble, they booed him all the way in it for the short time he was in there," he said.
"And then they had him get hurt by The Authority where 10 guys beat him on the floor, which was so contrived. And then he went back to the dressing room and then he came out at the very end. He still didn't win."
"And they kind of left it back up and it kind of ruined the making of him again as it led into WrestleMania. I thought it was just bad booking, bad story booking."
Royal Rumble Issues
According to Hart, things should've gone a lot differently at the Royal Rumble, with Reigns fighting all the way until the end instead of being the second-to-last guy dumped out of the ring.
In Hart's opinion, Reigns should've been fighting Big Show and Mark Henry at the end, two legitimate giants who should take an insane amount of effort to get out of the ring. That doesn't happen anymore, though, with the 400lb+ stars being thrown over the top rope like nothing nowadays.
We'll leave this with Bret Hart's final quotes, ones that WWE fans will have been thinking all too much over the past year as they have been forced to watch truly awful wrestling and storylines.
"It doesn't make any sense to me."
