As seen on Tuesday’s episode of SmackDown Live, Bobby Roode made his debut as a babyface in a match against Aiden English.
Dave Meltzer discussed Roode’s status on today’s installment of Wrestling Observer Radio and indicated that Roode might be moved into John Cena’s empty babyface slot on the SmackDown Live brand. Initially it was being speculated that he would be moving into the place of Baron Corbin as one of the top heels on the brand, however that doesn’t appear to be the case.
Meltzer also indicated that his entrance theme music could be the one big thing standing in Roode’s way that could keep him from drawing the heat he needs.
“The problem with him is well it’s not a problem — if they want him as a heel he’s gotta ditch the music because that’s total babyface music for life. So when it comes time for him to be a heel I think what he should do is just say ‘I hate this music, it sucks.’ And people would be so pissed at him that they couldn’t sing that music and I think at that point he’ll be a really good heal. But not with that music.”
Would you rather see Roode remain a babyface or should the company turn him heel? Sound off in the comment section below…
