WWE fans lash out after Roman Reigns wins the Royal Rumble; threaten to cancel WWE Network
WWE stock fell over a point overnight. #CancelWWENetwork crashed the cancel page. Philly enraged, blocked cars from leaving. Amazing.
The matches put on by the World Wrestling Entertainment may be fake, but the outcry after Sunday’s Royal Rumble is all too real.
I pay #WWE to entertain me. They refused to do that. I refuse to keep paying. #CancelWWENetwork http://t.co/JjLLEDiu3v
#CancelWWENetwork isn't trending world wide because of one match. It just happens it was the last straw. People have been tired for a while.
#CancelWWENetwork has been the best thing to trend this past 24 hours.
The best thing about @WWENetwork is that now the fans have a voice that can't be ignored. #CancelWWENetwork to be heard.
If Season 4 of Breaking Bad started with the worst episode ever and repeated that episode 12 times, you'd stop watching. #CancelWWENetwork
Sign up and cancel network n less than 5 hrs #CancelWWENetwork http://t.co/SOmydGnIJb
If nothing else, I hope #CancelWWENetwork shows that you shouldn't piss off your consumer base while selling a subscription service.
Cancel chanting, no-selling spot monkeys, 3 hour RAWs, 50-50 booking, scripted promos, bickering announcers, before u #CancelWWENetwork
The sad thing about the #CancelWWENetwork trend is that the talent is amazing. The writers and bookers are the idiots!
WWE fans in Philly staging protests, blocking wrestlers cars from leaving the Wells Fargo Center in Philly. More in AM. #CancelWWENetwork
For non-current wrestling fans not sure why #CancelWWENetwork is trending: imagine Andre the Giant vs Koko B. Ware instead of Hulk Hogan.
No please don't #CancelWWENetwork ! I already lost $650 on my WWE stocks :*( @QoSBaszler http://t.co/taHeUR8zQe

Needless to say, WWE fans were not very pleased with everything that took place at the Royal Rumble

The 2015 Royal Rumble has come and gone, and when the smoke cleared and the dust settled, WWE is lucky they didn't have to actually clear out smoke and dust from a riot that could have ensued in Philadelphia.

After what was an incredible triple threat match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship between Brock Lesnar, John Cena and Seth Rollins, the company completely lost all faith of the fans with their horrible booking of the Royal Rumble match. The ending was predictable with Roman Reigns getting the win and the match itself overall was not very good.

Oh yeah, plus there was that whole Daniel Bryan not lasting too long thing, which really pissed off the fans.

But, how pissed were they? Well, enough to get #CancelWWENetwork trending WORLDWIDE, not long after the show came to a close.

You really don't get the full effect, though, until you see for yourself just how displeased they were.
