TNA Wrestler, Bobby Roode spoke with GiveMeSport.com about several changes in TNA and Kurt Angle. Check out the highlights down below:
Are there any changes in the company? “There are a lot of changes going on right now,” he explained.
“I believe these changes have been a good thing. Lockdown was a really solid pay-per-view event and TNA is moving in a positive direction.”
His feud with Kurt Angle: “Kurt was a guy that I wanted to wrestle against for a very long time. To me, Kurt’s possibly the greatest professional wrestler that’s ever been in this business. “He’s a little older now, a little bit worn down, but Kurt Angle is Kurt Angle and he’ll go out there every single night and outperform everybody.“I knew I had my hands full, I knew I had to go out there and I had to step up and bring myself up to a Kurt Angle level. I think I did that and he and I had some great matches.
“I was disappointed with the way it ended. I was hoping that we could continue on and have at least one more match together. We were both hoping that we would have an Iron Man match, but with his knee injury it just didn’t happen. Hopefully it will happen somewhere down the road.”
Not being in the main event spotlight lately: “There’s obviously going to be some answers I have to find out from Bully Ray,” said Roode. “I think that’s priority number one – settling the score with Bully and finding out where this has all come from.“I have a lot of respect for Bully [off-screen]. As two former World Champions and guys that have helped carry this company for a long while, I think that when we clash, there’s going to be some very entertaining matches and a very entertaining storyline, so I’m looking forward to it.”
Andrews Take: A lot of fans either hate on TNA or just do not watch the product. It can be good sometimes, but it can be rough sometimes. Roode is a good that i think he has reached the glass ceiling in TNA. Really there is only one other place to go (WWE) to find out what he really can do. With that being said, TNA needs Roode more than Roode needs TNA. I think Roode would be lost in the shuffle in WWE and it’s best to stay in TNA.
