I loved Rude in TNA

But he apparently was a big fish in a small pond

He's been a snooze fest in WWE on the main roster

Can't remember one thing he did in the MITB match tonight

Turning him heel would help.

I don't watch NXT. So not sure what the hype is about Asuka

Can't speak English or at least not that well

Goofy facial expressions

Not as good looking as most of the WWE females

Yeah she's a very good worker. But she bores me to tears

Turn her heel

Turn Rude heel

Or release them both

Asuka killed it in NXT. She was doing a slow burn heel turn where she was becoming more arrogant with her undefeated streak, even cheating to beat Ember Moon at the Mania Takeover last year, and worked a style where she'd always find a way to be a little bit better (or just completely destroy someone, like that one time she tapped Liv Morgan in 45 seconds to a transition hold). If you're basing it on the WWE roster work, yeah, everyone fucking sucks.


Vince again ruins everything.



As much as I loved Takeover, MITB was just a boring mess with poor booking and no direction for almost everyone. Main roster call-ups might as well be a termination for anyone with talent.

I watched about two hours or so of MITB last night and found myself thinking over and over again that ::insert wrestler here:: was being hideously miscast or wasted. The most glaring example is Sami Zayn, who is a natural babyface, and yet he's being cast as an agitating heel. Also, Big Cass was in a 15 minute match and not working the popcorn stand. You see what I mean.

Bobby ROODE (absolutely no relation to Rick RUDE) had a good run as an obnoxious heel in NXT, but it's like he's a big goof on the main roster. The "Glorious" thing and the theme song got over because they were annoying; not because they were designed for; or presented as; comedy. Roode's initial promos in NXT were about how he was going to "class it up" and have CEOs and celebrities in attendance; not these common 9-to-5ers in shorts and backwards baseball hats. Roode was almost like a modern day Ric Flair in NXT. On the main roster he's almost a modern-day Bushwhacker.

There's always been a weird hierarchy on the main roster and it's very tough to break into its upper tier.

Asuka is useless to me . Kind of like the first Sin Cara. Supposed to be a big deal. And then is absolute crap on he main roster

I did put Roode both times. First it autocorrected to food. Then to Rude. Thought I fixed it. Guess not.

I don't watch NXt. But roode improved a ton between 2002 and 2011 in TNA. Did get stagnant his last three years there

I figured it's been auto-correcting you. But it did lead us to "Bobby Food"... which sounds awesome.
