• Heel Turn Coming On RAW Soon
According to The Dirty Sheets, RAW Superstar Bobby Roode is expected to turn heel on his new tag team partner Chad Gable and then work a singles program with him.
Roode’s heel turn was teased on this week’s RAW when Gable stole a tag from him and won the match for his team. Roode’s facial expression hinted that a heel turn is on the way.
We noted 3 months back that Vince McMahon isn’t interested at all in Bobby Roode.
However, it should be noted that this disinterest didn’t begin when Roode was drafted to RAW, but it began on SmackDown Live when Roode was having matches with Dolph Ziggler.
Vince wasn’t happy with the crowd response that Roode’s matches with Ziggler were getting and this was despite Roode being a fresh face on the main roster. This led to Vince making the following sarcastic comment: “the crowd sounds like Ziggler’s entrance (silent).”
Vince hasn’t been interested in Roode’s character ever since. Triple H is the one that lobbied for a Roode heel turn and save his career.
