This week, Bobby Roode made his main roster debut when he defeated Aiden English. Roode lost the NXT Title to Drew McIntyre at “Takeover: Brooklyn III” after a seven months reign. He debuted with the company back at “Takeover: Dallas” in April 2016 and made his in-ring debut a few months later.
Never seen a Roode entrance? Here’s what you’re missing.
Opinion: This isn’t the biggest shock and it’s the only way to go with Roode. There was nothing left for him to do in NXT save for the grudge match with Roderick Strong and it would be a waste of his talents to have him down there any longer. His in-ring work is solid and his character is incredibly popular so just let him go to the main roster now instead of waiting.
