Roman Reigns has an interesting history with the Philadelphia fans, that’s for sure. They weren’t exactly thrilled when Roman Reigns won the Royal Rumble in 2015. As a matter of fact, the fans booed him out of the building, and even an endorsement from The Rock wasn’t enough to save Roman Reigns that night.
Roman Reigns and the Philadelphia fans don’t exactly see eye to eye, and the fans are known to get a little rowdy from time to time, especially when Roman is in the room. Whether you love or hate Roman Reigns, there’s no denying that he gets people fired up.
The Philly crowd didn’t make as much noise for the SmackDown Live roster Sunday night as they usually do for Roman, and he challenged the fans to bring their best when Raw returns to the city.
