While speaking with ESPN, Bobby Roode explains how close he was to go in a different direction in NXT and it was actually Triple H who convinced him to change his entrance song.

“It wasn’t me at all, actually. I had a different song picked out,” Roode said. “I was about to debut on NXT and about a week later or two, as I waited for some paperwork to be finished up, I had a conversation with Triple H about the character and what I wanted to do. He came up to me that TV taping and said, ‘hey I’ve got this song that we have and I think it kind of fits your character a little better, so why don’t you have a listen?’

“So it could’ve went one of two ways: it could’ve really sucked or it could’ve been really great. And it’s been better than great — glorious, I guess you could say. The song itself was a blessing, it’s been a gift because in this business, everyone talks about the entrance but without the song, there is no entrance.”
