The man has an eye for talent. Earlier this summer, Paul Heyman took control of Monday Night Raw. After several months of bad results, it was clear that something needed to change and Heyman may have been the solution. One of the questions was how much of a success he could be with his choice of talent to push. He knows how to pick names, and now someone else has gotten his seal of approval.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Heyman is a fan of Robert Roode and was a big reason why Roode scored the pin in the Tag Team Turmoil match on Monday Night Raw. The win made Roode and Dolph Ziggler the #1 contenders to the Raw Tag Team Titles, with their title shot taking place at Clash Of Champions. Roode has not had much success in WWE as of late and has mainly been wrestling on Main Event.
Roode did look solid in the match. Check out some highlights:
Opinion: I can understand this as Roode is someone who may not be the flashiest in the world but he does everything so efficiently that he makes it look good. It’s a fine example of a degree of difficult of five and an execution of ten, which is a lot better than the other way around. Roode is someone who can do a lot of things well and that’s better than someone who can do one thing very well, so pushing him makes a lot of sense.
Do you like Roode and Ziggler winning? Will they pick up the titles? Let us know in the comments below.
