Iconic Quotes From Bobby Roode

“I got into this business for one reason, and I stayed in this business for one reason: To be the World Heavyweight Champion. I think if you are in professional wrestling, and you don’t have that dream or aspire to be the best and carry that World Heavyweight Championship, then you are in the wrong business.”

“Austin Aries is a guy that has been the longest-reigning ‘X Division’ champion, has proven himself all over the world before he even got to TNA, and is well-respected in the industry, so I think he’s a guy to look out for and I look forward to working with.”

“To me, I think I’ve always carried that type of WWE style with me throughout my career, even before I got here, so the transition hasn’t been that difficult. I’ve been enjoying the transition, to be honest with you, because in my opinion, this business evolves all the time, and it changes all the time.”

“To this day, I continuously get social media people tweeting doing ‘Glorious Bombs’ from all over the world. You have little kids doing them. You have moms doing them who have no idea what they’re doing, but they’re doing it. It’s become one of those entertaining things.”

“I was in TNA for over a dozen years. I had a great run there – I had a great career – but obviously, WWE has always been the be-all, end-all of sports entertainment. Until you get there and experience it on a personal level, you just don’t know.”

“If there was a dream match I could do, it would definitely be in a match against Curt Hennig. I think, growing watching him, I have hours and hours and hours of footage of ‘Mr. Perfect’ Curt Hennig and just studied his stuff for years.”

“Triple H is very hands-on and approachable. My whole ‘Glorious’ song is because of Triple H. Before I even signed my contract, we discussed what I wanted to do and what he felt like I could do. It’s been a real joy working for him.”
