Bobby Roode's storyline is way too familiar.

Note: Spoilers are going to be revealed for an upcoming episode of WWE NXT.

So, it's sorta confirmed that Bobby Roode will be facing against Chris Hero. What? Do you have a problem with it? Well, if so, then you don't get it and I am not going to be talking about Chris. Well, actually not all to be that true, because this blog entry is about Bobby Roode.

I am really glad that Chris is getting a title shot if that will be happening, however the way how he and Roode being like this is way too familiar to me and here is the reason why. First read the spoilers:

Yeah, that's what is going on. However, I seen this before out of Bobby Roode and I am thinking why. As you will know Bobby had this storyline played out for him about almost five years ago. Yes, 2012, July precisely. But, this did not took place in Full Sail in Winter Park, Florida, for WWE NXT. This was at TNA Wrestling in Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida. See at that time, Austin Aries, who you know of him on commentary for WWE RAW as of now, was having a huge ultimatum from Hulk Hogan to have an opportunity to face Bobby Roode for the TNA World Heavyweight title or still be the TNA X-Division champion. Hogan gave A Double a week to think about it (or thereof, since it was the tapings and it was a week before the next episode of Impact on Spike TV). Aries told him of the third option that he will relinquish the X-Division title to get a title shot for the TNA World Heavyweight title, however, he wants anyone else who becomes X-Division Champion have the same opportunity as he does, which Hogan agreed to. 

Bobby Roode found out about it and what he did was in order to make Austin Aries really livid is Roode attack someone, which it was Chris Sabin, who was talking about his injuries that he has and Roode came out and attacked him with a crutch that Sabin was using. Roode taunt Aries by attacking Sabin, until Aries made the save. It was only so that the two will go at it at the TNA Pay-per-view, Destination X 2012, which that night broke me down in tears, that Austin Aries won. I was glad.

Yeah, but that was then and what the tweets that I show earlier is that of this happening, but a few things that you will understand.

1. In 2012, Bobby Roode attack Chris Sabin with a crutch, which prompt Austin Aries to save Chris Sabin. In 2017, Bobby Roode defeat No Way Jose and then attack him further, which made Chris Hero to save No Way Jose.

2. In 2012, Roode defend the TNA World Heavyweight title at a TNA Pay-per-view that was mostly center the entire X-Division, in the main event. In 2017, Roode will defend the WWE NXT Championship the night before WWE's most important Pay-per-view, Wrestlemania 33.

3. Roode's opponent in 2012, Austin Aries, has a lot of titles and accomplishments, besides having won the TNA X-Division Championship, he has been a two time Ring of Honor World Champion, and Ring of Honor World Tag Team Champion with Roderick Strong. Roode's opponent in 2017, Chris Hero, has a lot of titles and accomplishments, included two tournaments last year with IWA Mid-South and AAW Pro, Evolve Champion in 2014, and two time Ring of Honor World Tag Team Champion with Claudio Castagnoli, just to name a few.

Okay, I came up with three things, but, I could go further. Did I forget that both Hero and Aries went after each other within Ring of Honor and Pro Wrestling Guerrilla? Well, yeah.

Anyway, Bobby Roode is going to be in a world of hurt when he is going up against someone who has been going at it most of his life. Either way, this match could be Pay-per-view quality.

Thank you for reading this,
