Roode is a veteran of the wrestling industry. Before coming to WWE he competed in TNA/Impact Wrestling and captured a plethora of Championships both in singles and tag team competition. Before becoming the ‘Glorious’ one, Roode was ‘The IT factor.’
The ‘Smackdown Live‘ superstar first spoke about what he wants to accomplish now that he is in WWE.
“I’ve been in the business almost twenty years, and I’ve only been [in the WWE] for two. So, I want to continue to stay healthy, and continue to do great things in the ring. Being a part of the WWE is one of the things that I always wanted to be a part of. The last two years have been, dare I say, glorious, and hopefully [I can] continue to be here for a long time. The United States Championship is just one title, and obviously, the biggest title that is out there is the WWE title or the Universal title. So, getting an opportunity to hopefully challenge for that is on the top of the list.”
When asked who he wanted to face this year at ‘WrestleMania 34’ he had a quick and consise response, indicative of how strongly he feels about facing the competitor. He answered…
There may be several reasons for this, which include Cena being the face of WWE in a way similar to how AJ Styles started his feud with Cena or potentially because Cena had the United States Championship Open Challenge.
