Despite being an enjoyable episode of IMPACT this past week, it was a very sad — okay, borderline depressing — Thursday for this TNA fan.
For those of you still reading, do we mourn a loss? Or do we celebrate a bromance that once was?
From Rob Terry stealing the spotlight and, unintentionally, stealing girls from Robbie E, to Robbie disrespecting Rob Terry to the point where their split was inevitable.
This past Thursday, Robbie E wanted to patch things up by having a friendly Bro-Off, but things got ugly when Robbie broke his VIP Entrance sign over the head of his now-former bouncer and best bro.
Robbie yelling, “YOU’RE A PIECE OF GARBAGE!” to a dazed Rob Terry passed the point of no return. They’ve had their slip-ups in the past, but when that picture broke over Rob Terry’s head, not only did the hearts of worldwide TNA fans break with it, but it signified the end of a bromance.
In a display of superhuman resiliency, or a flimsy poster board, Rob Terry rose to his feet and threw the sign off his head in a fit of rage. Robbie E, scared for his life, ran back to the locker room.
Now, at Lockdown, it seems likely that we’ll get to witness an epic clash between two former bros turned foes: Robbie E vs. Rob Terry.
There should be no doubt in anyone’s mind that Rob Terry is going to demolish Robbie E within no more than six minutes, bro. The bigger question emerging from this separation is; what’s next?
The sheer size and strength of Rob Terry would greatly benefit Sting, Hogan, and the rest of TNA if he was to go to battle against the Aces and Eights. ‘The Blueprint’ might have denied the invite from Sting, but ‘The Freak’ isn’t far off from Morgan in terms of size and intimidation.
Another possibility could see Rob Terry regain the TNA Television Championship, a title which he once held for an impressive 167 days. However, I think this suggestion maybe too out of reach, and it would make more sense to have Magnus gain his revenge on Devon by winning the TV title.
With it only being March right now, and with Terry’s push just getting started, I could actually imagine ‘The Freak’ among the twelve competitors in the 2013 Bound For Glory Series. After all, his former bro Robbie E, was a participant in last year’s tournament, so I wouldn’t rule this one entirely out.
My final suggestion would be to align Rob Terry with fellow Brit and the TNA British Bootcamp winner, Rockstar Spud. Spud played a minor role in the separation between the Robs, and TNA could really use all the tag teams they could get. At the same time, TNA could also really use extra guys like Spud in the X-Division though.
Whatever the future holds for Rob Terry, I’m definitely interested. One door closed, but another one opened, and it looks like we finally got ‘The Freak’ Rob Terry back!
