Roode is very good, not great. He's also 39 and like Aries I think he has been brought in predominantly for NXT. People talking about his long term potential in WWE is a bit silly I think. If he gets to the main roster he will be a solid midcarder but at that age the potential is limited. People saying Shelton is too old but the guy is only a few years older than Roode and I'm much more excited for him right now than I am for Roode.

Also in reply to posts above, AJ is a much bigger name and star than Roode and I'm not the biggest AJ fan around.

Theme is awesome

I have been watching both Bobby Roode and James Storm since a long time. Started watching them as Beer Money Inc for the first time. And I have always found Roode to be much more interesting than Storm.

Maybe Storm's handling in TNA has a hand in it but Roode has always looked better out of these two at every matter. And that's why I am happy to see Roode in NxT.

Still I don't think that he might ever be a world champion in WWE. I am all okay if he does so but I am doubtful because of his age.

He isn't going to be called up to the main roster until atleast this year's end as the voids need to be filled which were left by the likes of Balor, Corbin, Crews and Breeze.

For me, he is an A-/A player though. Might improve after I see what he is upto in NxT.

I love Roode. Beer Money will go down as one my all time favorite tag teams, them vs The Motor City Machine Guns were classic contests and the best series of tag matches I ever saw. Then Roode went on a solo run and resembled Triple H, I liked it. He can do good to great things in WWE and I hope he makes the main roster sooner than later.

Top tier WWE talent also means you're very popular. I think he could do that (although his age makes me hesitate to saw he definitely will). But right now he is very low tier.

Roode is not a big name. TNA at its peak got 1 million viewers in the US. That was 2 or 3 years ago at this point. WWE regularly averages over 3 million for Raw. That's at least 2 million people who have no idea who Roode is. Casual fans definitely have no idea who he is. John Cena is a big name. Brock Leanar is a big name. You cannot put Roode in the same sentence as them. Heath Slater is probably more well known than Roode.

Top tier talent has nothing to do with popularity in the sense that you're describing. Just because a guy wrestles for a smaller promotion doesn't mean his talent can't be main event level in NXT or WWE. Talent has nothing to do with the scope of a wrestling company's popularity. CM Punk was a top level talent even when he wrestled for ROH. AJ Styles was a top level talent even though much of the American audience didn't know him before his debut. Bobby Roode is a guy that can outpromo 9/10 people currently on the WWE roster and is a ring-general similar to the likes of HHH. Before EC3 came around, Roode was the best talent in TNA by a large margin barring Kurt Angle.

Heath Slater may be more well known than Bobby Roode, but he's not more talented. Key word; TALENT

Since WWE is not real, I do consider popularity to be a part of top tier talent. Popularity is the only objective way to judge a wrestler's talent (since what makes you good in the ring if there is no standard for it). I would say Roode is a top tier prospect but a low tier talent.

Always been a big Roode fan, Beer Money is my all time favourite tag team and he was then best TNA world champion I ever saw.

HOWEVER his promo seemed very aimless at times, and did drag. But I loved just seeing him innan NXT ring and his theme was very very good! Who will his first feud be with? Itami? I wonder..

I'm surprised by the mixed reactions for Roode here, the guy is an absolute bona fide main eventer. He's been a bit of a late bloomer, yes he's 39, but in wrestling terms (these days) and the kind of shape that he's still in, that's still very young. The man oozes charisma, he's got all his movements, facial expressions, ring psychology down to a tee. Roode is miles ahead of most of the midcarders on the main roster and he certainly has the ability to main event on either RAW or SD.

SD could use someone like Roode at the moment given their paucity of talent. They should pull the trigger with his sooner rather than later because he doesn't need a slow build. The man is already a superstar.

I don't think you're correct on how you're calculating that nobody knows who he is. For example....I haven't watched TNA in years. But I watch WWE. So I'd be in that 2 million that have "no idea who he is" by your calculations. These things don't remain static. I watched TNA back when Roode had Ms. Brooks as his manager, through his Beer Money days, and then to his solo title run. But I haven't watched in at least 3-4 years. I suspect that somewhere between 2004-2016 more wrestling fans watched TNA at some point than you realize.

It seemed like he just said fuck it and went straight for the jugular after that. Dunno, just found that kind of funny...

Anyway, it was a good start for Booby Roode. He came off as a legitimate top-tier talent, which he has always shown to be, and didn't stumble once in a pretty lengthy promo segment. Positioning himself as the man who's going to be "at the forefront of the new NXT" is a good way to make him feel like a big deal straight out of the gate, although I wish they just cut the gimmicky aspects out of it. Saying he's going to bring NXT to wall-street and that president's were going to be in the crowd soon was a little hokey and gives me the feeling that his character is going to be akin to an arrogant philanthropist (for lack of a better word). Guys like Joe, Aries, Owens, hell even Eric Young all came in and basically just played themselves... I don't really get why Bobby Roode would be treated any differently.

Still, it's only been one week so I could be jumping to conclusions, I'm just hoping his character isn't too gimmicky. Also, I'm kind of surprised they turned him heel right away when Joe and Aries are already top level bad guys. Starting off as a face probably would have given him more momentum to start his run but it is what it is. NXT needs main event talent especially with rumors of Samoa Joe getting the call so I expect Roode to be stuck there for a long time yet.

EDIT: Forgot to mention... his theme is fucking GLORIOUS. The more I listen to it, the more I like it.
Umm...his gimmick in TNA was a Wall Street stock trader. That's not new.
