While it appeared a bit differently on screen, Roman Reigns claims that he was ready for the reaction that he received from the audience at Royal Rumble. He confessed to reading a lot of what the internet wrestling community has to say about him.

You can count The Rock as one of the millions and millions of people worldwide who were not happy with how the Royal Rumble went down. He reportedly is upset with how the Daniel Bryan elimination went down. WWE upset a lot of the fans in the arena by doing that, which put a lot more pressure on the Great One to pull them back in at the end for Roman Reigns. Management underestimated the potential backlash.

Some concerns have been risen in regards to the push that Rusev has been receiving in WWE. Right now, management is obviously stalling with him. The Russian sympathizer has not been thrown into a feud and has been working random matches against Dean Ambrose, R Truth, Roman Reigns, Justin Gabriel and Ryback. The belief is that the creative department did have a good story for him and will wait for the Royal Rumble.
