WWE SmackDown Live superstar Bobby Roode recently did an interview with Gamespot where he talked about his SmackDown roster debut, who he would like to compete with in WWE, his feud with Dolph Ziggler, Asuka and a variety of other professional wrestling topics. Here are some of the highlights from the interview:
On joining the main roster at SmackDown Live:
“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 who he would like to work with in the WWE:
“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 his his feud with Dolph Ziggler:
“I think it’s gonna be great. Dolph has been here for a long time, and I always thought that he was an incredible talent. Him and I really aren’t that different; I said it on TV last time. You know we’re really alike in a lot of ways. We both demand respect in the ring, we both want to go out there and tell a great story, and we want to perform everything on the show. I think if we have that attitude going into the match, we have an opportunity to do what he says every day, which is ‘go out there and steal the show.’”
Roode also discussed Asuka’s upcoming debut and more. Check out the full interview here.
