Somebody Help Me Out With Roderick Strong...

Post by Bob-O » May 27th, '18, 14:12

I was unfamiliar with Roddy before he came to WWE. I'd seen some of his ROH stuff, but mostly because I was watching other people who happened to be wrestling him. But since signing with NXT i can't stand him. I don't think he's that great in the ring and feel like he's an awkward promo. As a "hot prospect indie darling newcomer" I thought he underwhelmed (understandable considering the other recent signees at the time), as an underdog I never had that urge to see him win, and now as a heel with UE I'm finding him still unbearable. Maybe it's because I didn't care about him as a babyface so the turn didn't kayfabe "upset" me, maybe the turn was done wrong (he's a completely different character now, because he wanted to win a title?)...

I don't know. Y'all helped me out with Kyle O Reilly, I friggin love him now, playin his belt like a guitar, amazing in the ring. Y'all helped me out with Mauro Ranallo, I think he's the best play by play man they've had in a very long time, he's over the top in a way nobody else is.

Sell me on Roddy. Why does he belong in WWE... or anywhere...?

He's... he's just Roderick Strong. An awesome wrestler whose matches always have excellent psychology, whether he is working over the back or the opponent is avoiding his chops or he's a pissed-off babyface. Promos have never been his strong suit aside from some of his later heel stuff in ROH and PWG where he's just a douchy turd. Really all there is to say about Roddy is that he's an awesome wrestler.

He's also a son of a bitch that's known for having a thousand different ways to hit 'em with a backbreaker of some sort...even I know that so...lol.
When they come, they'll come at what you love.
