Jim Ross Believes Bobby Roode Would Be Better Served As Villain In WWE

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross spoke about various topics on the latest edition of The Ross Report. Here are the highlights (transcript courtesy of Wrestling Inc):

WWE needing to turn Bobby Roode heel:

“I think Bobby Roode would be better served in WWE, in my opinion, as a villain.” Ross explained, “[Roode’s] natural body english, facial expressions, everything [lends itself to villainy]. He’s a natural heel. He should be put in his natural habitat and allowed to feed.”

Roman Reigns crowd reactions:

“I just think it’s almost like when Angle comes out, it’s, ‘you suck!’, ‘Cena sucks’… I think people think it’s the thing to do and they’re not hip or cool if they don’t do it as evidenced by the crowd looking to do a hostile takeover in Pittsburgh [Pennsylvania] [at Extreme Rules]. I wasn’t too crazy about it.” Ross continued, “I just think it’s a topical thing and people think it’s cool.

“That’s the best answer I’ve got for you. I don’t know why it would be. And nobody can tell us why exactly it is. We’ve all got a theory and that’s all it is. Let it play out. And I had a little experience in talent relations. I would have no issues hiring Roman Reigns today even if I knew what adventure it would be in head of us. He’s that big a talent.”
