As he prepares for what will likely be a triumphant return to his hometown of Toronto for the upcoming NXT TakeOver special (at least for the part where everyone sings along with his theme music), the Glorious One, Bobby Roode, took the time to speak with the Live Audio Wrestling podcast about how leaving TNA and signing with NXT has given the 17-year veteran’s career a new lease on life.
“I think so. I think this is the only thing I’m really good at so I don’t know what else I would do but it’s really rejuvenated me. I feel like I’m young again, I feel like I’m right in the middle of my prime, I feel like I have years and years ahead of me, you know what I mean? I’m almost 17 years into the business right now but I feel like I can go 15, 16 more to be honest with you. I’m just having fun and I have that passion back. I look forward to getting back on the road all the time and being a part of NXT shows, just being a part of it all. I got into this business for a reason and everything that’s going on right now with WWE and with NXT is the reason why I’m in this business so I’m having fun.”
Well, they do say that 40 is the new 20, after all.
