Bobby Roode is TNA Champion. He won the belt at Thursday night's Impact Wrestling tapings at the Sands Bethlehem Event Center in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, after going over Bobby Lashley in a bout refereed by Kurt Angle.
While it's unknown exactly when this match will air, Roode became the No. 1 contender after beating MVP & Kenny King in a 2-on-1 Elimination Match that will air on the October 8, 2014 episode of Impact. We have those taping results available at this link.
I spoke with someone at the taping and was told attendance was in the 300-400 range, which was reportedly up from the Tuesday night taping.
