Bobby Roode On Losing His Drive In TNA
In a recent interview, former NXT Champion and current SmackDown Live star Bobby Roode talked about a variety of topics, including losing his drive while he was in TNA.
“To be honest, when I was with TNA, I just didn’t have the drive any more, I didn’t have the passion. It was unfamiliar territory to me, because I’ve always loved the business and I’ve always been passionate about it. It was the first thing that I thought of when I woke up, last thing I thought about when I went to bed. I just didn’t have that any more.”
Seeing his friend flourish in NXT made him realize that he needed a fresh start.
“It was very intriguing to me. Honestly, I didn’t want to do anything else with my life. I knew that I still had a lot of really good years left in this business. I really wanted to get the opportunity to come to WWE. NXT was presented to me and I was very excited about the opportunity that was given.”
AJ Styles On Transitioning To WWE
AJ Styles sat down for a recent interview and spoke about a myriad of topics, including his biggest career moment and transitioning into WWE from NJPW.
“I never changed my style with respect to how my wrestle. The only difference was that WWE has a lot more cameras facing you than the independent circuit, but I think that was just a learning curve that you need to go through and it has really helped me.”
He still feels like his debut at the Royal Rumble is his biggest career moment…so far.
“My debut in the Royal Rumble was the biggest moment of my career! I was quite overwhelmed by the support shown by WWE fans and that is something I will never forget.”
