Hot damn, Universal Champion Roman Reigns was booed like crazy on Raw

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

One night after finally beating Brock Lesnar for the WWE Universal championship, Roman Reigns opened this week’s episode of Raw looking to make a statement. Before he could cut his first promo as champion, Reigns was booed heavily by Barclays Center live crowd.

You still suck?

Reigns was able get some relief from the live crowd after he clowned on Baron Corbin. Big Dog fans and detractors alike can all agree that making fun of Corbin is quality entertainment.

The Brooklyn fans let up on Reigns further when he made a title match between himself and Finn Balor for later in the night.

One segment in and Roman Reigns is a fighting champion, who may be able to win the crowd over if matched up versus the right heels and shows up every week with Universal title on his shoulders.
