Ever since The Shield broke up and went their separate ways, there is no denying that they've all had great success.

They have all won numerous championships, including the WWE Championship, and they've all had reigns as mid-card champions, with Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins all being the Unites States Champion at one point in their careers, and Ambrose also being the Intercontinental Champion.

However, there is one massive thing that splits the three up. The reception they receive from the WWE Universe.

Ambrose has been a solid face ever since The Shield split up, Rollins has been a superb heel and is now working towards becoming a top babyface, whilst Reigns has struggled massively with the WWE audience.

It's been made very clear by WWE that they want the Samoan to be their next big babyface, but sadly for them, the WWE Universe have decided to not buy into that and have almost stopped it from happening.

Reigns gets booed more often than cheered, and because of that, WWE had to remove him from the title picture on Monday Night Raw, sticking him in a feud with Rusev.

For one reason or another, Reigns simply hasn't gotten over with the fans, and it's a subject that has been touched upon recently on an episode of LAW.

Chris Jericho was on the episode and he was asked about Reigns and the fans' reaction to him.

Y2J stuck up for his colleague and revealed how he thinks fans boo him because it's the cool thing to do.

He said: “Listen, the guy is an amazing performer, he’s a great worker, I would work with him every night of the year if I could but still people boo him because it’s almost like the John Cena thing where that’s the cool thing to do.

"I think if you actually said why don’t you like Roman Reigns, people wouldn’t even be able give you an answer, it’s just the cool thing to do is boo him.”

Jericho might have a point, but sadly for Reigns, it doesn't look like anything is changing.
