Flashback To Heel R-Truth:The Best Natural Fresh Thing of The Last Ten Years.

Post by KILLdozer » Aug 9th, '18, 18:45



Why he never actually won it all and instead just moved right back down, immediately after, is beyond me still. Right up there with the fucking up of Ryback.

I'd say worse than Ryback. Truth is/was so versatile. Face, heel, psycho, goofy, serious... he's shown he can get over with whatever they need. He's not bad in the ring, he stayed out of trouble... he's black...

...his enhancement work over the years is baffling.

His heel work with Cena was by far the best of his career. He killed it! I'm guessing the ppv didn't sell well, because I honestly thought they had a new star after that.

Yeah I figured it was certainly that time for him, he was destroying literally everything each and every week. Then again, It's possibly a legitimate case of "refusing to build another star at Cena's expense and actually take the belt off of him".

Classic.

Maybe it was kind of like a Kane thing, who I've heard just DOESN'T WANT the schedule and shit that comes with being on top.

Yeah though, maybe worse than Ryback in the fact that he was RIGHT THERE that close to that next level and they just wouldn't do it. Remember the immediate part when he actually turned? Just starts smokin' in England lmao. "No smoking indoors" .

Truth is a living warning to all talent, never botch a line, never show that you can be funny, cuz otherwise you'll never get out of it.

You guys do realize that if Truth beats Cena, we don't get the Punk pipebomb and rise, right?

I'd much rather have seen R-Truth as champion that long instead.

I say worse than Ryback because Ryback was one dimensional. Truth has proven he can do anything they need at a high level. The crowd eats out of his hands with whatever he has to say, where Ryback was one catch phrase.

Why not? I'm not suggesting Truth should have replaced Cena or even had a run with the title. I'm saying, Truth proved that he belonged at the top of the card and they immediately demoted him back to comedy/enhancement. He made the tournament for the vacant title, but that was it, and if you look at the names in that tournament it's a sad sad testament of how thin they were on main event talent. They absolutely could have rolled with Punk/Cena and still pushed Truth.

I don't think the "cena wins lol" meme has anything to do with Cena WINNING, it was what they did to the guys after he beat them, which I think the casualty with the highest potential was Truth. Bar none.

Dozer specifically suggested in the original post that he should have "won it all." I, too, think they should have kept the push up, though I prefer babyface big star Ron Killings a la his TNA run to top heel Ron Killings.

This was a man that had me entertained weekly like no other in a long time, but nope no title win. They still did the "ha Cena won ha got em!" thing with Rusev a ways back though, and even that wasn't nearly as bad if you look at how things have respectively for each since then.

The segment that followed: literally the only thing bad about this topic is I've been reminded of "the anonymous RAW general manager over here..."

There's actually "R-Truth and Little Jimmy-outside the ring" though...wow this is gonna be great.
