Current NXT champion, Bobby Roode recently did an interview with Planeta Wrestling, where he answered many topics about his time in NXT, how popular his theme song is and much more.
On if NXT met his expectations: “Yeah. I mean I wasn’t really sure what to expect when I first came in a little less than a year ago, but I have zero complaints. Having one heck of a ride so far, and to be touring with the brand every week and see how the brand has grown from the day I’ve started here, seeing the guys who come through here and move up to the main roster, the success they’ve had so far there, it’s been a blast and been a real pleasure to be the face of NXT right now as the champion and getting to carry that ball for a while.”
On what’s next after winning the NXT title: “My goal from day one was to change NXT and to make it better. Obviously NXT is known as a bit of an underground brand, in the past since I’ve gotten here I’ve wanted to kind of shape it up a little bit and make it more business oriented. I wanted to be the guy on all the ad campaigns, commercials, and class up NXT. I think as champion you’re viewed as leader and captain of the ship. My goal after Takeover: Orlando – I’m going to beat up Shinsuke Nakamura and I’m going to clean up NXT and make it my own.”
On NXT going to Spain: “First of all I would love to make Spain glorious. I’ve never been there but if the fans want NXT I think they should get NXT. There is no other brand that is hotter as far as I’m concerned.
