Jim Ross addressed the fans that chanted “you can’t wrestle” at Roman Reigns at Sunday’s Extreme Rules pay-per-view. I thought he made a good point so I decided to clip an excerpt for you:
The live audience chanting "You Can't Wrestle" at Roman Reigns was an embarrassment.
Fans don't have to like a talent if that's their choice but to express such a snarky, "listen to me" chant just doesn't seem like a good thing. At times, these chants feel that they are from self absorbed, attention starved fans who feel compelled to make sure that everyone within ear shot knows how they feel. I get the theory that if I pay my money I can say whatever it is that I want but is that actually necessary?
Obviously these fans don't feel so strongly about their opinions that they do not attend said events.
Pro wrestling is a unique animal in as much as many of its die hard fans actually get THAT upset over a show business presentation based on fictional storylines and TV personas.
