|The Brain meets the Truth|
I'll be honest, until recently I was not a fan of R-Truth at all. Ever actually. Not when he was K-Kwik in his first WWE or when he was just Ron Killings in TNA. I especially disliked his "What's up?" chant as a face. But when the WWE turned him heel last summer, he started to grow on me. I must say I have worked "Little Jimmy" and "I've been a bad R-Truth" into a regular conversation.
It's funny too because for some reason my son loves the guy. R-Truth was one of his two picks to win the Royal Rumble. Kofi Kingston was the other. But remember, my son is 10 and is not a constant viewer of WWE or wrestling for that matter.
Despite not liking the personas he has previously played, there is no denying that R-Truth is one of the most athletic guys in the WWE. Consider the fact that he is 40 years old and can do things still today that I couldn't do in my 20's, it's impressive to me.
R-Truth will likely never be WWE champion (but I said the same thing about Mark Henry a year ago), but he is quite entertaining. I think the bat sh!t crazy gimmick works for him. He's pretty funny on the mic when he's not yelling "What's up!?!"
|R Truth in action (WWE)|
Long story short R-Truth goes out there and puts on a good show. He's doing well in the role the WWE has developed for him, and despite my dislike for him in the past, I do enjoy what's R-Truth is doing right now. And you can bet that's no c-o-n-spiracy.
