Jim Ross recently chimed in and stated that he hopes that WWE will be wise enough to scoop up the former world heavyweight champion. The legendary commentator compared Roode to a modern day version of Arn Anderson.

After teasing it last night, it has now been revealed that Bobby Roode will indeed be at the first GFW television taping that is taking place later this month in Las Vegas. The former world heavyweight champion is being allowed to add his star power to help the new promotion get up off the ground. He is still under contract to TNA.

As expected, Matt Hardy and Jeff Hardy were forced to vacate the tag team championship because the former has been left on his own as the latter is going to need several months to recover from a dirt bike injury. TNA has decided to have Bobby Roode and Austin Aries join the fray. The two of them will be facing Davey Richards and the returning Eddie Edwards in a best of five series to determine which team will hold the belts.

Since Bobby Roode is one of the best overall performers in the entire world, there are many within WWE that are disappointed that the front office did not try harder to lure him in while he was a free agent. In addition to being an old school style of wrestler that simply gets the business, Roode is also one of the more likable guys around. He comes off as someone that respects wrestling and those that paved the way before him.
