Re: I feel like Bobby Roode is lacking something
This is such a good post.
I disagree with you on it though. Like, yes, technician. I understand that. However, Angle's style is supposed to be a technician. People still know what the angle slam is and they still pop for that.
I'm not saying he needs to invent a move though. I'm saying he needs to work harder at making me care about the ones he has already. None of his finishes have ever been played up. Like, he's this awesome technical wrestler right? I'd love for the commentators to talk about WHY the fisherman's suplex is so hard to escape. Hell, tell me WHY that crossface of his is so dangerous. It could be something as simple as Bobby giving an interview where he's all "I'm a student of the game, and I've taken the best from athletes I respect...and made them better." Just simple shit like that. Not that I would ever presume to know how to write a wrestling show.
It's less about what he does, and more about telling me why I should care about it.
The Angle Slam is now useless, pretty much the entire TNA roster already kicked out or no sold that move which pisses me off.
2011 Bobby Roode would said that during the BFG series, 2013 Bobby Roode will NEVER respect anyone... I bet if you asked him, he would say crossface was made by him.
The reason why we don't get fresh ideas and promotions rising in American Pro Wrestling is because the majority of the community is happy with the same old shit and will reject any chance of change. There is a risk in doing new things, 9 times out of 10, it leads to 50+ pages of bitching and moaning. While business gets turned into a dictatorship and more and more out of touch. Support the indies, support New Pro Wrestling.
