NXT Champion Bobby Roode spoke with Brian Fritz and Michael Wiseman of BetweenTheRopes.com about where he expects to be on WrestleMania Sunday. “I’m gonna be backstage,” Roode said. “I’m not sure. It’s a different kind of setup here from what I’m told so I think a lot of us will be up in a suite. I don’t really have a game plan to be honest with you. I’m just going to come and just enjoy the show and just enjoy the weekend. You just gotta really take the time to sit back and enjoy it.” View the full interview at Youtube.com.
Powell’s POV: Roode is a guy who isn’t getting as much call-up discussion amongst fans. It’s probably because he’s facing Shinsuke Nakamura, who is at the top of everyone’s wish list to be called up. That said, at age 39, it’s not like there’s much for a veteran like Roode to learn in NXT, so hopefully his time will come sooner rather than later as well. Roode spoke more about his time in NXT and where he wants to go whenever he is called up to the main roster.
