5 Current WWE Wrestlers Who Fans TURNED ON

Jason Jordan is best known for being one half
of the tag team: “American Alpha” and
as much as we like to forget, Kurt Angle’s
long-lost son. In NXT, American Alpha were
loved for their fighting spirit and wrestling
ability and then came the terrible angle…
pun most definitely intended… of Jason Jordan
being Kurt Angle’s illegitimate son. What
Angle was trying to say was that he wasn’t
“Ready, Willing and Gable” to pull out.
Following the announcement, fans immediately
turned on Jordan and his talent in the ring
was sadly overshadowed by this truly bizarre
storyline. The only positive thing to come
out of that storyline is reading all these
“Next week on RAW” comments.
Ronda Rousey made her in-ring WWE debut at
WrestleMania 34 in a match that exceeded expectations.
Rousey then went on to have an impressive
rookie run while also making it clear to everyone
not to get on her bad side. For this poor
guy, he must have missed
the memo…. But she wasn’t just destroying
people physically though, she was destroying
them mentally too. Just months after her WWE
in-ring debut, Rousey made light work of Alexa
Bliss to win her first WWE championship at
SummerSlam 2018. However, fans slowly started
to reject her and by Survivor Series 2018,
Rousey was booed out the building despite
being the victim of a vicious assault from
Charlotte Flair. Rousey eventually dropped
her Mrs Nice B*tch attitude (in her words)
and turned heel, reminding everyone why she’s
known as the “Baddest Woman on
the Planet”.
Bayley is a sad example of how fans can suddenly
turn like the flick of a switch. Back in NXT,
Bayley was adored by the WWE Universe. Her
overwhelming enthusiasm, her wacky inflatable
entrance and not to forget, her hugging, (that
includes grown-men too) made it hard to dislike
her. But somehow, fans eventually did. Over
time, fans started to turn on Bayley and that
was mainly attributed to the bad booking of
her character. A good example of this was
her match with Alexa Bliss at Extreme Rules
2017. Bayley finally turned heel for the first
time in her WWE career, much to the delight
of the WWE Universe.
Kofi Kingston made history when he won the
WWE Championship at WrestleMania 35, becoming
the first African-born world champion in WWE
history. After how long again, Kofi? In the
lead-up to his match at WrestleMania 35, fans
were completely behind Kofi, chanting his
name at every arena
and the hashtag “KofiMania” even became
a worldwide trend. But not everyone was a
fan… *cough* Vince McMahon. Despite being
replaced and told that he isn’t good enough,
Kofi overcame all these obstacles and won
the WWE’s top prize at the Grandest Stage
of Them All. He went on to become a great
fighting champion but it wasn’t long until
fans started to turn on him. In particular,
during his reignited feud with Randy Orton
at Clash of Champions 2019, which is a shame
considering that fans were all behind him
just a few months ago.
“Overrated”, “over-pushed” and “boring”
are some of the words that fans have used
to describe Seth Rollins now. It wasn’t
that long ago when Rollins was the WWE’s
hottest babyface, putting on clinics each
week as well as generating huge crowd reactions.
But ever since his victory over Brock Lesnar
at WrestleMania 35, he just hasn’t been
able to “Burn it Down” with the fans,
especially with him being involved in awkward
storylines, causing a ruckus online and generally
making a fool of himself. These are just a
few reasons why fans have started to reject
Rollins. So, maybe it’s time for Rollins
to bring back his evil cackle and turn back
to the conniving heel that he once was.
