To say that Bobby Roode’s presence in NXT has been “glorious,” would be a huge understatement.
Ever since the 12-year veteran of TNA made his jump to WWE, his presence has been defined by that single word, and the entrance theme that accompanies it. But how did his theme song come to be?
In a recent interview with The Sporting News, Roode discusses this very topic. “I got five demo songs sent to me from Neil Lawi who’s in charge of the music in WWE.” After choosing the song, and discussing his character with Triple H, the two of them along with Michael Hayes listened to it and knew that the fit would be right.
And the response has been incredible. “It’s one of those things that just kind of evolved,” Roode said.
But what has come more out of Roode’s theme music are the “Glorious Bombs” that have gone viral, thanks to Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa.
“I do owe them a lot of gratitude,” Roode said about these videos. “It’s funny, it was one of those things that just kind of happened. We’re in a gym on the road doing live events one Saturday and they said we want to do this thing where we play your song, because they love the song.”
These “Glorious Bombs” have “blown up” social media, and Roode said that he receives tweets from all around the world. “You have little kids doing them. You have moms doing them who have no idea what they’re doing but they’re doing it. It’s become one of those entertaining things.”
I LOVE GLORIOUS BOMBS. Seriously. I try to watch two or three a day, because they’re just so darn funny.
