According to Meltzer:

Click Here (wrestlingobserver.com)

"Junior Fatu (Rikishi) is done with TNA as the two sides couldn't come to a contract agreement."

(I read elsewhere that Fatu wanted more money.)

Man. Why have Fatu going over Robert Roode when he wasn't even a lock to stay?

Still, I am not sad.

Junior Fatu was able to get a good pop from the crowd. That is important but I bet he was asking for A-talent money when he's always been a mid-carder.

I guess it's more "feel sorry for Robert Roode on principle." Because yeah, he's really boring; I can't really bring myself to care about him. Also I hate to say it, but his look (particularly his hair) is so outdated that it makes me care even less.

At least Roode got the chance to show him up with a better promo. And he gave the best one of his career.

Test and now Rikihsi. Hopefully, this will stem the tide of WWE walk-ons for a while. Except, of course for Booker T.

Junior Fatu made me cringe every time he was on television. He could be the nicest guy, but, man, what does he bring besides toilet jokes and that stupid rear end move that he does? I would of been very sad if they teamed Joe up with him. :/

This is good news indeed.

And I don't care what anyone says. I like the Robert Roode character. He's no Flair, but, at least TNA actually, you know, gave him a character to play. :/

Saving their dough for a stab at Booker T maybe?

I don't mind Roode, but agree he is missing something. He is not boring on the level of Chris Masters, but maybe along the lines of Chris Harris. They are both pretty sound all around, but need a bit of an edge.

I think Robert Roode is a good mid-card heel. He would make a solid IC/US champ if he were in WWE ... however, I do see ways that he could improve.

For starters, if he's supposed to be portraying this "Wall Street"-esque character, he should cut his hair, shave, etc. There are just too many greasy, long-haired lookin' dudes in TNA (Rhino, Chris Harris, James Storm, etc) and he doesn't really stand out.

Much as I don't want to quote "No One" Billy Gunn, he said something rather profound a while back. He said Robert Roode would be a big star in wrestling, but not in TNA because they don't know how to push him.

And after jobbing him to a lardass that they hadn't even signed yet.......that prediction is looking more and more profound.

As for his look, Ted DiBiase looked kinda scruffy with his beard, and he pulled off "rich asshole" very well. Roode could do with a haircut, though.

Please remember that the job to Fatu was to set up a program with Joe. They net out to a positive for Roode. A better question is why they put Fatu in a #1 contender's tournament when he was unsigned. This is way too similar to the Andrew "The Punisher" Martin debacle for anyone with a brain to have not been better prepared.

I always thought he just looked like a bigger Barry Horowitz.

The term ruthless aggression has be used pretty freely lately on WWE t.v. I would like to think back a ways and see what everyone thinks have been the best use of ruthless aggression over the years.
