Waiting for the Austin Aries complaint/overrated thread. Be along in a few weeks, most likely.

Roode has a few signature moves: The RR Spinebuster, the fisherman suplex, the spear, the crossface, the double knee drop, the blockbuster, and the Curt Hennig necksnap. And he does them all to perfection. And yes I do pop when he hits the RR Spinebuster. Then again, I pop whenever anyone hits it but Roode is definitely one of the best at hitting it. But I get what you mean. I guess it's just easier for me to recognize when a guy is about to do a certain move, even if I've seen the guy wrestle only once or twice.

I was the biggest Roode mark. I was calling for them to make him the top guy. They belatedly did it, and he failed. The guy’s more complete as a tag team wrestler. He lacks the presence of a true superstar. His promos, for mine, lack the gravity that’s needed to cement him as a top star. And cutting the hair was a catastrophic mistake. I just think he was generally handled wrong. With that said, I wouldn't be running to smooth over his rough edges. The novelty that could have been is now lost.

lack of gravity and less hair, fuck.

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.

Haha. But to be serious I think the haircut has stopped trolls saying he's a triple h rip off. Bobby Roode is way more talented. Triple H was good but he will always be the guy who worked with the best.

And the IWC has turned heel on Roode! He's the best thing about TNA and has been for a long time. I was always happy with him using the crippler crossface tbh.

All Bobby Roode is lacking is the World Title. He's one of, if not, the best in the business at the moment.

Speaking of Roode's in ring-work, the guy can work three different styles. He can be a technician, while at the same time brawl with the rest of them. And he can be a powerhouse when needed to be. Really unique to see someone as a Technician, Brawler, & Powerhouse. Explains the HHH comparisons.

Roode is one of the best in the business. If not the best.

Roode cut his hair first so Triple H is a Roode rip off now, amirite!

One thing that bothers me about Roode is the octaves (think that's the word)of his voice. Much like Sting, no matter the situation, he always sounds the same. No matter if Sting gets 8 on one gang-banged by Aces & Eights or he is happy about Bully & Brooke getting married, he is excited. With Roode, it didn't matter that he was the longest reigning champion, he still sounded pissed.

It's a minor thing and I can over look it but at times I look like this 0_o watching a Roode promo.
