Since Roman Reigns began his big push with the WWE, many fans have been booing the superstar every single time he appears in a WWE ring as they don't want to support a guy that has been forced upon them.
The biggest moment where this happened was at WrestleMania 32 when The Big Dog won the WWE World Heavyweight Championship for the third time in his career in the main event against Triple H. Despite The Game being a heel and Reigns being a face, it was the former Shield member who was booed, so much so that the company had to turn off certain microphones in the crowd.
To combat the boos that have now reached nuclear heat level, many fans and critics alike have suggested for the company to turn the 30-year-old heel, giving the fans a reason to show their disapproval towards the current champion. Some people believe this should happen right now while others have suggested waiting until further in the year.

Former ECW and WWE star Tommy Dreamer provided his two cents on the Reigns turning heel situation to TSN in Canada, according to Wrestling News. He believes the turn should happen once The Big Dog's former stablemate, Seth Rollins, returns to the ring.
He said: “Wait until Seth Rollins comes back. That can be (Reigns’) big heel turn. It’s funny because on social media on Mondays and Tuesdays, when everybody is talking about it just like we are, (Reigns’ heel turn) is a pop culture hot topic.
"To me, whatever happens with the (current) AJ Styles and Roman Reigns feud, the moment Seth Rollins comes back, Seth Rollins could be the biggest babyface WWE will have of all-time. ‘Hey, I want my title back, Roman Reigns.’ Guess what? He has just turned heel because no one is going to cheer him against Seth Rollins.”
Rollins will probably be greeted as a babyface by the WWE Universe upon his return to the company, and he will be wanting to take the WWE World Heavyweight Championship back from Reigns, as he never lost it in the first place.
The Architect had to relinquish the title last November as he tore his ACL, MCL, and medial meniscus in his knee while attempting to perform a sunset flip powerbomb during a match against Kane in Dublin, Ireland. He was estimated to be out for roughly six to nine months, but with his return potentially on the horizon, he'll be wanting his championship back.
A feud like this has SummerSlam written all over it - especially if Rollins returns from injury by then - and it could be the transition towards Reigns turning heel as well, granting Dreamer his wish.
