This scene of dominance and submission occurred on the July 2nd episode of Raw. Roman Reigns is in a tag team match against Drew McIntyre (his current master and overlord in this dramatic photo) and Dolph Ziggler. Damn — McIntyre is looking awesome.
For some reason, Roman Reigns is scheduled to appear in two Tag Team matches on this episode of Raw, and this is just the first. Do they not have enough guys on the WWE roster these days to fill the card, so they need Roman to appear twice in one night??
I sometimes wonder if the WWE superstars follow this blog, and this match sure makes me suspicious. I had just posted my article on the appeal of Hair Pulling on July 1st (see “By The Hair“), and then Roman Reigns gets repeatedly jerked and jolted by the hair throughout the July 2nd Raw show.
Here we see McIntyre take control of Reigns in the corner with a fistful of his long dark locks, but we will see far more follicle torture before they’re finished with Reigns.
Reigns is propped up like one of those martial arts dummies for Ziggler to haul off and kick in the throat. The casual disdain and lack of concern for their victim’s well being is just intoxicating.
The only thing that could improve Roman’s performance would be if he wrestled shirtless in trunks, maybe a pink or yellow pair.
For his second Tag Team match, Roman is scheduled to face the Revival, Dash and Dawson.
Unable to wait their turn, the Revival pounce on Reigns and punish him at ringside, taking turns holding his arms and punching him in the face.
Dawson must have gotten the memo, that wrestling fans dig hair pulling. Here we see him twist up a lock of Roman’s hair to get a better grip on the scruff of his neck.
By the way, Dawson in that open ring jacket and white trunks is everything. Damn — I’m triggered by this manly stud.
For some reason, many in the WWE audience have come to hate Baby-Face Roman Reigns. They chant for his destruction and enjoy it when he is losing. I wonder if his submissive behavior, flopping like a ragdoll instead of trying to Man Up, is behind their disdain. To me, his bitch-ass-ness makes him even more lovable and appealing as a wrestler.
How is Roman going to wrestle these thugs later in the night after they’ve inflicted this degree of punishment on him??
Roman goes full Helpless Ragdoll as the Revival stand over him in dominance. You can be sure the Revival are going to torture Roman later once they get him in their Tag Team match — focusing on those damaged ribs. I can hardly wait!
I realize Revival are the evil Heels and I’m probably supposed to despise them. But when they do things like this to guys like Roman, wearing gear like that, I can’t help but fall madly in Fanboy love with them.
