The harder they try to sell him, the less I'm interested. I see the upside on most everyone on the roster, but I just don't get it with this guy. I see a bland dude who does backbreakers. His hard luck, try hard story doesn't endear me to him. When he steps through the ropes, he's still just as uninteresting. I'm glad he has a kid, I have a kid too. Big deal. Great, he has a wife! Who cares? Do I need to see her whine at ringside and call Roode a cheater? I wish I didn't. They want to get him over as a plucky guy who does it on his own, but he also needs his annoying wife to fight his battles? Whaaatever. Go back to Indies. And allow me to conclude this nuclear hot take by ripping his music. It's generic. Generic af ike him, and his music. He's like the most basic create a character in a video game. If you take the basic guy and give him a bunch of backbreakers and a pushy wife, you get Roddy Strong.
