What's the story?

The 'Glorious' Bobby Roode was recently interviewed by Gamespot, and he spoke about a variety of topics including Asuka's dominance and his move to SmackDown Live following SummerSlam. When asked about who he wanted to face in the main roster, Roode did not hold back.

Roode named a plethora of main roster opponents that he could have great matches with. We bring you his thoughts and comments via Wrestling Inc.

In case you didn't know...

After a 'glorious' career in TNA, Roode had a fantastic run in NXT as well, capturing the championship from his fellow SmackDown Live superstar, Shinsuke Nakamura at NXT Takeover: San Antonio. He was brought up to the main roster two nights after SummerSlam and is set to face Dolph Ziggler at Hell in a Cell.

Ziggler's not the only opponent that Roode wants to face in the main roster, however!

The heart of the matter

Roode said that if he had to name all the guys that he wanted to face, he would be there for an hour:

Yeah, Seth Rollins, the guy who is on the cover of 2K18; Roman Reigns; and Dean Ambrose. Let's talk about the SmackDown side. We got Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Randy Orton, and Rusev. There are just a ton of guys.
The sky's the limit really, and I feel like a kid in a candy store, like I'm starting my career all over again because there is so many cool opportunities that await.

Roode also weighed in on Asuka during the interview and compared her to Goldberg. He mentioned that with her in the mix, it was going to be an exciting time for brand RAW too.

What's next?

Roode faces Ziggler on pay-per-view, this weekend. The encounter should be absolutely explosive, and we cannot wait for the two entrances, based on how the story's being told currently.

Author's take

I've been a Bobby Roode fan for a really long time and think that he can be an invaluable asset for WWE. I had a chance to interview his old tag team partner, James Storm about Roode, and he had nothing but praise for the 'Glorious One' as well. The future looks extremely bright for this talented sports entertainer.
