WWE Fans Lashing Out Over Royal Rumble, #CancelWWENetwork Top Trend
WWE fans worldwide are enraged over Sunday night’s Royal Rumble pay-per-view, specifically Roman Reigns standing tall when all was said and done.
The live crowd gave Reigns a thunderous rejection even before the match was over in a scene that rivaled last year’s Batista Rumble incident. The backlash is continuing online, with WWE fans canceling their WWE Network subscriptions en masse.
#CancelWWENetwork was the #1 worldwide trend on Twitter for a good period of time late Sunday evening and into Monday morning.
Many fans were even tweeting screenshots of the cancellation page after they dumped the Network, with others saying the cancellation page crashed at one point.
A poll on WWE’s Facebook page with over 23,000 votes had 75% of fans giving the show Thumbs Down.
