The Shield

A lot of older, mostly male, fans dislike Roman Reigns. He’s not flashy, he can’t zing people with a promo, and he’s SHOVED DOWN THROATS with title opportunity after title opportunity. But there’s a reason he’s the top guy in WWE. His physical presence and natural confidence are second to none. With his massive arms, flowing hair, and black gear he looks like a superhero. There’s the tired point “he’s only popular with women and children” to which I say…so what? Are they not fans? Wrestling is not for 30-yeard neckbeards. It is for everyone. Few videos showcase that better than this. Following a live event, Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins meet with a fan with Down Syndrome. Watch as Reigns and Rollins shake the man’s hand before doing the Shield pose with him! What a moment!
