It's pretty safe to say WWE Survivor Series last weekend wasn't to everybody's liking.
There were several matches the WWE Universe were unhappy with. The length of The Undertaker/Kane vs Bray Wyatt/Luke Harper match, how the Divas' match finished, the eliminations in the five-on-five traditional Survivor Series elimination tag team matches, but the one that stood out the most was the eventual winner of the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
In case you didn't know, Roman Reigns won the championship in the final of the title tournament against Dean Ambrose.

However, Sheamus then came to the ring and cashed in his Money in the Bank, and after two Brogue Kick's he had won the WWE World Heavyweight Championship from The Big Dog.
This annoyed many members of the WWE Universe, as they felt the company had gone with a safe and very predictable pay-per-view, rather than experimenting a little with the opportunities created due to the unfortunate injuries to top superstars in the WWE.
WWE producer and occasional wrestler Road Dogg defended the pay-per-view on Twitter against it's critics. One of his main messages he put across to the critics was that Reigns' time isn't now, but be patient because his time is coming soon.
He's right that Reigns time will eventually come, but during a time where the WWE needs fans to come back and watch the programming, especially during the downtime before WrestleMania season hits, he has to agree that putting the title on Sheamus isn't exactly the best route the company could have gone with the options available.
