NXT Champion Bobby Roode recently appeared on the Card Subject To Change Podcast where he talked about his transaction to NXT, his dream match and more. Below are some of the highlights from his interview:
Talking about his transaction NXT, Roode claimed that it was easy for him and revealed that he had a conversation with Triple H before coming to WWE:
“It was easy actually for me. A little nerve racking at first because you hear a lot of negative things, and you hear some positive things. And until you get to experience it for yourself I didn’t try to come in with any sort of expectation. I had a conversation with Triple H, and he was willing to give me that opportunity and it’s been great for myself and I feel great for the brand.”
When asked about his dream match, the current NXT Champion first took the name of former WWE Star Mr. Perfect Curt Hennig as his dream opponent:
“One of the main reasons that I got into the business was I’m a huge fan of Curt Hennig, Mr. Perfect. I have like 12 hours of Curt Hennig footage that I watch all the time.”
Since a match between Roode and the late legend Curt Hennig is not possible anymore, continuing on the topic the former TNA Star said that he would love to face John Cena at WrestleMania:
“So if there’s probably one guy that I would have loved to have just met it would have been Curt Hennig. And if you’re talking about potential matches that I would love to have, that’d probably be John Cena at Wrestlemania.”
Apart from this, Bobby Roode also talked about his unique entrance song and more.
