WWE superstar and SmackDown Live superstar Bobby Roode was a guest on the Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast recently and discussed his move to the WWE main roster from NXT, as well as his final days with TNA.

“For me, the WWE was always the ultimate” Roode explained.

“In sports entertainment this is the place to be if you want to make a name for yourself you have to get to this company and be put on this stage. It’s everything I thought it would be, to be honest with you.”

“Being around not only the guys in the lockerrom but the guys behind the scenes, the office, the production people, everything is so top notch and outweighs everything I’d ever experienced in my career before I got here.”

Roode also touched on his career in TNA, including his final days with the company.

“I have zero regrets in my career, i really have zero regrets” Roode stated.

“I was treated very well, I just came to a point in my career where I was at a company for over 12 years, I felt i did everything i could possibly do there” Roode explained.

“I was doing well, I was supporting my family, I had zero complaints but it came to a point where it was like… I’m going to go to work for 6 days and then I’m going to sit home for 2 months… ”

“That’s not what I got in the business for, I got into the buinsess to be on the road.”

“I was starting to lose a passion for the buisness I’ve always loved” “It got to the pint in my career at the other company where i was like ‘I don’t love it anymore’.

“Fortunately for me, I got an opportunity and it’s been great”

NXT superstar Matt Riddle has been gaining popularity since his landmark signing earlier this year, and during a recent interview with ESPN for their story on the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida, Riddle says that he should have been with WWE long before his 2018 signing.

“I moved my family down here, I’ve got three kids and a wife, so it’s nice,” Riddle said.

“I just wrestle in Florida every weekend. We occasionally do tours or TakeOvers, but for the most part, now I get to spend more time with my family. I’m more local, and it’s great. The training here is top-notch,” he continued. “Where I was, I was lucky to even train three times a week, because my schedule was so insane — and I didn’t have the coaches or amenities to do [much more than that].”

“I just feel like I belong here. I felt like I belonged here three-and-a-half years ago when I had my first try out.”
