Mike Davies of the Peterborough Examiner has a new article online on Bobby Roode’s departure from TNA Wrestling. Roode is quoted in the piece. Below are the highlights:
“It felt like it was the right time,” Roode said, Sunday night. “After almost 13 years in a wrestling company I felt like there was nothing really left for me to do there. I wanted to mutually part ways. I have nothing negative to say about TNA Wrestling. They treated me very, very well. It was just a matter of me being in a part of my life where I'm not sure TNA was the right fit for me anymore. The brand has been stale for the last little while and the growth wasn't there as it was in the early years.”
It’s noted Roode would be open to talking with WWE if given that opportunity but he doesn’t know what the future holds for him, speaking in the first 24 hours of his decision. You can read the piece in its entirety at this link.
Richard Reacts: The truth is the TNA brand has been stale since they left Spike TV. It's sad to see but it's a situation where the talent and the potential was there but the management team was not. It's similar to what happened to WCW but they never saw that type of growth.
