Sean Waltman (formerly known as X-Pac) had Bobby Roode as this week's guest on his podcast called X-Pac 12360. On the show Roode touched on array of topics pertaining to NXT, Wrestlemaia, as well as his plans for the future.
Here are some of the highlights:
Thoughts on NXT:
"When I first started talking with WWE and I had my first conversation with Hunter, I just really wanted an opportunity. He didn't really know much about me and I didn't really know what to expect coming through the doors."
On Triple H picking his theme song:
"I think they did make ['Glorious'] for somebody else. The original song that they sent me was nothing like the 'Glorious' song. We had it kind of set out that [original song] was what I was going to use when I made my debut. But Hunter is a very smart man, obviously. He thought that this 'Glorious' song would fit my character a little better."
What to expect for his NXT Takeover: Orlando entrance:
"The entrance that I'm going to have on WrestleMania weekend at the upcoming TakeOver in Orlando is going to be pretty special. I think it's going to top all the previous three TakeOvers I've been a part of so far. They seem to keep getting bigger and better. I always remember growing up watching the entrances. That's part of the entertainment...If you have a great entrance, that's half the battle."
Plans for the future:
"This is a great place to be for me. Obviously I'd be lying if I said I never wanted to be on a Monday Night Raw or a SmackDown Live. But I'm just making the most of the time I have down here [at NXT], and when they feel like the time is right I'm going to go up there and try to capitalize on that opportunity the same way that I did here in NXT."
