He just turned 36...still a couple years from "pushing 40".

I would like to see him use the Fujiwara armbar more.

Could be worse he could use the elbow drop as his finisher (yes I'm looking at you Magnus).

First off, roode style is technician and he's not a show off like aries or ziggler. The guy isn't supposed to get people excited when he does a move, it's the exact opposite. Watch destination x and how the crowd reacts in disgust for each heelish tactic and only then to mark out when the good guy kicks out at 2,99999.
If you are trying to say Roode lacks something because he didn't make his own finisher, then we're fucked since nobody in this era invents their own finishers.

"But Punk haz Go to Sleep..."
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 disputing that he's capable of getting big reactions without establishing a big hitter finish. That's one of the reasons I love him so much. Hell, you're totally right on the Destination X match too. So well done and a lot of it is cheap tactics and amazing facial expressions. I'll never forget when he failed to pin Aries and just gave that wide eyed, shocked look in the corner. Total markout for me. I turned to a friend and, regarding Aries, said "Oh my god, he's gonna win." That's the kind of stuff Roode can get me to do. I lose myself in his matches.

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.

Well i love all 3 of his moves. But i agree that he doesnt make it feel special and i dont know which ones are more important. It should be the spine buster to set up the Cross face as a huge finisher.But i like the finishermans suples as well for a finisher.


I dont know whats happened to him. He seemed to be connecting to the crowd so well before.Seems to have lost his steam. He is starting to feel like Storm.

Those 2 could be exploding right now.

I mean Aries is a special guy. He would make anyone look bad.He has to be one of the most talented well rounded guys in years in the entire business.

Remember how insanely intense they made Chris benoit. How insanely intense Chris benoits face was when he did the Cross face. It looked like his head was going to explode ha.

It is not Bobby Roode, but a lot of guys in TNA.
Every time you do a angle instead of a match, you are sacrificing the future for ratings now.
Every match a guy has been in tells a story.
TNA matches are to sporadic, to tell that story.
In wrestling's hay day if you had a interview you had a match.
That match was almost always not against a equal.
So you can showcase what a guy does.
Fans can then fantasise about what he might do against a equal.
Thus being excited about main events of TV shows, and ordering Pay Per Views.
Furthermore you never job a top guy in a 10 minute TV match against a equal.

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.

By writing in which finisher and moves they want him to use in each match. For example, wouldn't the script call for him to win using XXXX finisher, or to hit someone with a bottle and go for a pinfall.

If we don't see him use the finisher we want to see him use maybe the script only calls for a certain finisher to be used on PPV's or only a couple times a year. So it wouldnt be Roodes fault for using some finishers rarely. Just guessing here though.

That would be a booker's fault not a writer's fault.

Moreso the issue with Roode's finisher or lack there of if that is how you feel would fall back on Prichard and the agents/producers (Snow, Brown and Kenney). You could perhaps also lay some blame on Hogan here as well, since he is in a sense trying to play the VKM role for TNA.

He's a technical wrestler and an old school heel. Using the fisherman suplex fits him fine. His spinebuster is like Triple H's. Strictly a signature move.

sigh

And to the suggested above of Roode claiming to even the crossface? That's the kind of thing that would be awesome! That would make the moves he does matter. It's exactly the kind of thing I started this topic to talk about.
