SportsVibe.co.uk has a new interview online with TNA Champion Bobby Roode. Below is an excerpt:
You’re the current TNA World Champion. Does that achievement top the lot?
Absolutely, my dream when I got into this business was to become World Champion and that I am. I’m at the pinnacle of my career and it’s a moment I’ve waited for and worked for, for a long time so I’m going to make the most of it, take advantage of this opportunity and hopefully the gold will be around my waist for a long time.
I’m enjoying being the bad guy again and really like the way my character is being portrayed right now; I feel right at home with it. For the most part I well and truly enjoy being on this side of the fence.
Hulk Hogan commented in October that you weren’t ready to be World Champion. Did you take much notice of his remarks?
The comments that Hogan made didn’t bother me in the slightest. People in this industry say a lot of things and you learn to take it with a pinch of salt. Honestly, I think what Hogan said has worked in my favour, it gave the little extra fire I needed and look where I am now, I’m the face of TNA.
A couple of weeks ago on IMPACT! you spat in the face of TNA President and your boss Dixie Carter. What was that like?
It was a great feeling! Anytime you get an opportunity to stand up to your boss and get away with it feels good. There was a lot of built up aggression inside and a lot of feelings that I wanted to get out and I did that. I guess you could say my emotions got the better of me, but at the end of the day when I look back, I wouldn’t change a thing.
