When a wrestler starts looking this appealing, it’s time for a Face Turn. So they put him in the ring against Mojo Rawley who recently experienced a Heel Turn of his own after turning against his former partner, the beloved Zack Ryder.
Mojo’s fleshy pale body contrasts nicely against Roode’s tan hard-body. We quickly learn that Mojo will be targeting the hero’s ribcage, striking him with knees and fists in an effort to injure him.
And Mojo takes his time dissecting his victim — I love Heels who savor their dominance. After each assault, he just looms over the fallen Bobby Roode, just lording over him.
So Mojo Rawley is relentless, going back to the injured ribs repeatedly in an effort to break the vulnerable man’s spirit.
Roode readily accepts the Helpless Victim role, keeping his arms draped on the top rope like a well-trained jobber as Mojo drives a series of thrusting Shoulder Tackles into his mid-section.
During this extended Seated Ab Stretch, Rawley rests a hand on that chiseled mid-section, to draw our attention to it or to appreciate it himself.
This hand placement sends a message of ownership, as if Mojo can grope and grab his opponent wherever he wishes now that he is in command.
Roode calls himself “Glorious” which is written across the ample backside of his tight blue trunks. He also wears a fancy Mr. Wonderful-style robe to the ring and rhinestones on his gear. To see this “glorious” specimen of male perfection reduced to a rib-clutching mat-kisser is a pleasure to witness.
During the post-match victory pose (damn — check out those arms and pecs!), he still places a hand tenderly on his damaged mid-section to remind us of his agony.
Looking intimidating and foreign and glistening wet, Jinder Mahal enters the arena to challenge Bobby Roode to a match. He must’ve been watching Roode in action backstage, and now he’s eager to get his hands on that body.
Mahal is so worked up, he wants to wrestle Roode TONIGHT, WHILE ROODE IS STILL INJURED! Yes! I can’t wait to watch Mahal further punish this stud’s ribs!
To ensure he will have the upper hand, the Heel sends his henchmen, the cute Singh Brothers, to kick and stomp Roode some more, further injuring him.
How in the world will poor Bobby Roode defend himself against more rib torture?? I can’t wait to see it.
