One of the reasons why WWE put the world heavyweight championship on Sheamus is because they want the fans to root for whoever he is up against.

Management has noticed that the reaction to Roman Reigns has been a bit warmer because of it.

On Monday Night Raw, it appeared that Bo Dallas randomly decided to interrupt Roman Reigns before being attacked. The reason why the segment happened is because the creative department wanted to do the joke where Reigns would say the Dallas catchphrase.
