WWE fans are not happy with Roman Reigns

At WWE Backlash on Sunday night, many fans actually walked out of the arena during the main event between Reigns and Samoa Joe:

Many fans who did stay did not seem happy that Reigns won the match:

The WWE star has been booed at four consecutive Wrestlemanias, and as B/R's Andreas Hale wrote in April, "fans just aren't willing to swallow what the company has been force-feeding them since The Shield split up in 2014. His ascent was transparent, and the WWE Universe wasn't willing to accept he was ready for a position on top of the mountain. Truthfully, he wasn't ready for it back then."

And it seems like fans aren't ready for it now.
