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

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.
