Roman Reigns have never been massively popular. People cheered him at the 2014 Royal Rumble because it came down to him and Batista. People liked him before his injury because of the shield and when the shield split he was being booked to be a tough guy. It's everything that has happened since he returned from injury that has made him unpopular, Vince McMahon tried to make him into the next John Cena, fans censored on it, now they want him to be the Rock, fans don't want that because that isn't Roman Reigns.
Even if Reigns was booked in a way that worked to his strengths people still wouldn't want him to main event just yet, the guy is still green and lacks experience. John Cena was originally supposed to win the WWE Championship at Wrestlemania XX but they knew he wasn't ready so they pushed it back a year. Roman Reign's isn't near ready and he isn't by any means the right person to beat Brock Lesnar. Truth be told no one in WWE is truly qualified to beat Brock Lesnar for the belt but that is WWE's own fault for doing such a bad job building talent over the last 7 years, the only two guys in that time to really get to true main event level are Cm Punk and Daniel Bryan.
WWE would do great business if they could see the landscape changing, people like Daniel Bryan, Ziggler and Cesaro are who the fans want to see. It's a sad state that it is the year 2015 and the top heels on TV Week in and week out are Big Show and Kane. WWE crap on WCW for a lot of things but they are making all the mistakes WCW were making all those years ago. The only guy I can see legitimately rising to the top at the moment is Seth Rollins and that's because he's Triple H's own personal pet project.
I don't have a problem with people being multiple WM main events either, which is why I also don't complain about WWE not making new stars, however many people do so WWe are attempting to do that with Reigns, a guy people actually did react well to prior to the Rumble, you can't blame WWE wanting to push a guy when people react well to him. They didn't boo him when he returned, they (the rabid cry-baby Philly fans) only booed him at the royal rumble because their prefered guy didn't win.
Somebody has to face Lesnar, and Reigns is as qualified as anyone to have a crack at him, Reigns wins a lot including clean wins over Orton and Bryan, and an ever so slightly tainted win over CM Punk. And I literally cannot remember Reigns being pinned clean in a one on one match ever, certainly not recently. So how is he not worthy to at least challenge Lesnar? And that's all WWE are promising,they're not saying Reigns will win, you've already decided that for yourself, maybe he won't, but if he does beat Lesnar then by definition he was the man to do it. And don't forget Lesnar was green himself when he beat the Rock in 2002 and nobody made a fuss over it.
The top heels are not Big Show and Kane, it's Rollins and Lesnar, HHH and Bray Wyatt, Big Show and Kane are just the Authority's henchmen.
