Bobby Roode Admits He Needed A Run In WWE For His Career, Talks NXT

NXT star Bobby Roode was recently interviewed by John Pollock of The LAW (Live Audio Wrestling) to promote the upcoming NXT TakeOver: Toronto event scheduled for WWE Survivor Series weekend in Canada later this month.

When asked by Pollock if he felt he needed a run in WWE for his career to truly be considered a success, Roode admitted that he did.

“I think so, yeah. Obviously, starting out in the business, it’s been 17 years for me now. The dream has obviously been to be a part of WrestleMania, be a part of a big stage. I’ve had an opportunity and I’m thankful for my opportunities in the past where I’ve been and the companies that I’ve worked for. I can honestly say now that I’m in WWE, there’s no better place to be, there’s no bigger stage than being in the WWE, I am very grateful for the opportunity and it’s only been 5 months. If you would have asked me 5 months ago if I thought I would’ve had this much success so soon, I probably would have said you’re crazy but things happen for a reason and again, timing is everything. I have been given this opportunity with this “Glorious” song and it evolved into this really big thing and it’s been a lot of fun.”

Regarding joining the WWE ranks via the NXT roster, Roode agreed with Pollock that the move likely added years to his career.

“I think so. I think this is the only thing I’m really good at so I don’t know what else I would do but it’s really rejuvenated me. I feel like I’m young again, I feel like I’m right in the middle of my prime, I feel like I have years and years ahead of me, you know what I mean? I’m almost 17 years into the business right now but I feel like I can go 15, 16 more to be honest with you. I’m just having fun and I have that passion back. I look forward to getting back on the road all the time and being a part of NXT shows, just being a part of it all. I got into this business for a reason and everything that’s going on right now with WWE and with NXT is the reason why I’m in this business so I’m having fun.”
