Ric Flair provided interesting insight on why some fans reject Roman Reigns in a piece by GiveMeSport.com. In it, Flair said fans expect Reigns to be as good as The Rock.
Below is an excerpt:
”I don't pay a lot of attention to him talking on the mic but I think he's okay. Fans look at Roman and they want him to sound like The Rock and that isn't going to happen," Ric Flair explained in an exclusive interview with GiveMeSport.
"The Rock didn't become The Rock overnight either though. It took him a few years as well to nail down who he was and what he was about."
"It takes time for young talent to grow. It's not just a name, they've got to build a brand," added Flair.
"Fans have to become attached to the brand and that's hard to do and it takes more than one or two years. Legends like Steve Austin didn't just turn up and start talking like that either, it took him time as well.
"Roman [Reigns] has got so much talent that fans are going to have to be patient with him. It doesn't happen overnight. If people are upset with Roman it's not over a lack of talent. Fans are always going to have their opinion, but Roman has a fantastic future ahead of him.”

Richard Reacts: Ric Flair makes good points but I think the expectation is that someone in the WWE World Heavyweight Championship match at Wrestlemania 31 should not be in need of further development. I'm not trying to start the flawed 'is he ready?' argument but just some food for thought within The Nature Boy's comments.
