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 Stone Cold Steve Austin knows why, as the WWE legend detailed in a recent interview. The reason? WWE's terrible booking.

The WWE Hall Of Famer recently appeared on 'You're Welcome With Chael Sonnen' and spoke about the way the WWE are booking Reigns and he wasn't the most sincere about it.
"Roman is having a hard time winning the crowd over just because of the way he's booked," Austin said.
According to Austin, the Samoan-American has all the tools to be a bonafide star, but he's just being let down by the way the WWE are using him
"When you sit there, good looking guy, a lot of charisma, [and] easygoing the times I've talked to him," the Texas Rattlesnake revealed. "He's one of the nicest guys in the locker room and well-spoken and smart and doesn't need anybody writing convoluted promos for him."
Austin went on to add that there are people who would think Reigns was entitled and just handed the top spot in the company just because of his looks and who he is related to, rather than earning it with proving he can be a top guy and actually connecting with fans to get to the top.
"So I just think many people consider him [to be] entitled because of his looks and that [has] actually worked against him, so the kid is in between a rock and a hard place, no pun intended that he's related to The Rock."
It's a big learning experience for Reigns as he deals with rejection from the fans and now transitions to a tweener type character. We'll have to wait and see how it works out for him but anything is better than the 'Sufferin Succotash' Roman Reigns we had to put up with last year.
