“He’s more worthy of being a champion than Damian Priest” – Wrestling veteran suggests a new United States Champion (Exclusive)
Former WWE head writer Vince Russo recently suggested that Robert Roode could be a better United States Champion than Damian Priest.
Vince Russo sat down with Dr. Chris Featherstone on Sportskeeda Wrestling’s Legion of RAW, to review this week’s episode of the red brand.
Speaking on the United States Championship match, Russo detailed that Roode would have been a much better champion than Priest.
Here’s what Vince Russo had to say about Roode losing to Damian Priest:
“It doesn’t make any sense to me. He’s more worthy of being a champion than Damian Priest. How old is Damian Priest? It’s funny how they go through the system and they’re that old. You don’t get much out of them at 40 years old,” Russo said.
Russo also stated that WWE wasted Robert Roode after he was called up to the main roster.
Russo continued, “Roode never ever got an opportunity outside of NXT when he had that entrance music that everybody liked… He would only be the babyface because he’s a badass and you like him… But acting like a babyface and having babyface traits, that’s not Bobby Roode.”
