Once again, Roman Reigns is one of the most hated superstars in the WWE and still sees himself being the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, with that big gold belt over his shoulder.

The former member of The Shield has been on a one-way rocket ship to the top of the WWE ever since the trifecta broke up, with the former football player being some sort of personal project of Vince McMahon.

Vince obviously wants Reigns to be the new big star in the WWE, despite how much the fans have rebelled against him. WWE superstar Paige was speaking at a recent panel where she agreed with some of the fans displeasure at Reigns' monster push.

Reigns Heel Turn

The WWE's anti-diva made an appearance at a recent Wizard World event where she hosted a panel where she was asked about Reigns and how fans haven't taken to him at all.

According to Paige, she agrees that Reigns has been pushed down the fans' throats and that he needs a character change badly. 

"I would like (Reigns) as a heel champion," she said to a smattering of applause from the gathered crowd. "Because that would fit him more, right?"

Pushed to the Moon

Then the Englishwoman said that she understood fans concerns about Reigns being pushed so hard, saying it's something the WWE does that maybe it always shouldn't.

"Sometimes, like, we have a thing where a lot of us (WWE Superstars) get shoved down your throats pretty quickly and it is very forced upon, so we can instantly get turned on (by the crowd)."

Everything Paige says there is true. Reigns has been forced far too hard and the WWE haven't listened to fan reaction at all, instead deciding to ignore it and hope that Reigns can win us over, despite having all the charisma of a potato. 

Sorry Roman, but you aren't going to be loved anytime soon. Dean Ambrose deserves a run with the title so much more, and people actually like him!
