WWE Superstar and former NXT World Champion Bobby Roode recently spoke with the folks at Gamespot for an interview. Below are some of the highlights.
On jumping to the SmackDown Live roster: “Of course being on SmackDown is a huge career highlight for me. I really enjoyed my time in NXT. It was an amazing experience there, but you can’t get complacent in this business. Obviously being on SmackDown, there are a lot of guys there that I wanna get in the ring with. As far as the character goes, I’m just out there having fun. I got a smile on my face, and why wouldn’t I? I’m getting an opportunity to live my dream, go out there every week, and be a part of SmackDown Live and make SmackDown Live ‘glorious.'”
On Superstars he would like to face on the WWE main roster: “Oh man, I’d be standing here for probably an hour. Yeah, Seth Rollins, the guy who is on the cover of 2K18; Roman Reigns; and Dean Ambrose. Let’s talk about the SmackDown side. We got Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Randy Orton, and Rusev. There are just a ton of guys. The sky’s the limit really, and I feel like a kid in a candy store, like I’m starting my career all over again because there is so many cool opportunities that await. So, hopefully I’ll get a chance to work with all of those guys.”
On Asuka moving to the WWE main roster: “She’s gonna be dominant, she really is. There’s never been another superstar, let alone a woman, who has ever dominated this way since maybe Goldberg. I think it’s gonna be an exciting time for Raw. It’s obviously a very exciting time for Auska as well. So, it’s just a shame that she’s got that collar bone injury, and that she couldn’t have come up any sooner. But, she’s got a long career ahead of her. She’s gonna be very successful, and she’s an amazing talent. So, I’m looking forward to watching her.”
