Finally! The wait is finally over! We’ve seen him lurking backstage at NXT TakeOver events and has been teasing his debut for months now. Now, like I’ve said before, the wait is finally over as Bobby Roode made his highly anticipated debut on NXT this Wednesday!
His entrance music kicked off with the proclamation of “Glorious!” before The NXT Universe set eyes on him. Low and behold, there he was; dressed professionally in a suit, watch and shoes to match as he mis way down to the ring. He certainly looked the role, now would his time on the mic back it up?
Bobby took the mic and announced that the wait was finally over (clearly I am not the only one who feels this way!), Bobby Roode is officially here at NXT! He informed The NXT Universe that he has been watching what has been occurring in NXT for months, watching NXT TakeOver: Dallas in the front row during WrestleMania weekend. It was an experience that left him speechless, as he could not find the words to describe his feelings and emotions that occurred as he listened to the fans screaming and chanting. It was that moment that he knew NXT was the place for him. No other company or brand as evolutionized professional wrestling like NXT has and when he hears the phrase “We are NXT!”, he says the fans make NXT what it is just as much as the Superstars do. Bobby Roode is the NXT Superstar NXT has been waiting for to take this brand globally and he informed The NXT Universe on just how he planned on doing it. This is when Roode’s tune started to change. to a sound the NXT Universe did not like.
Now that Roode is apart of NXT, his face will be all over billboards, Time Square and TV commercials. Roode planned on taking NXT to corporate America, to wallstreet and soon, NXT would see the faces of presidents, business men and women from Fortunate 500 Companies that would be replacing The NXT Universe. He mocked The NXT Universe for what they wore, from their “oversized t-shirts, khakis pants, ripped jeans and hats” to their “stupid” chants, quickly turning Heel and overstaying his once-welcomed debut by The NXT Universe. Before he left the ring, he told The NXT Universe that he is a Superstar, not only because of the things he’s done in his career, but that he dresses as a Superstar (as we all could see) . Roode proclaimed that from this day forward, NXT will be glorious!
Well, that is certainly one way to leave an impression in NXT. His time on the mic certainly showed The NXT Universe that he could spit like the best of them and of course, gained a strong reaction once he turned Heel. Knowing little about Bobby Roode, he has certainly showed those like myself that physically and verbally, he’ll have a glorious reign in NXT; but now, it’s time to see him in action. Will his athletics be just as appealing as the suit he wore or will it be anything but? Continue to tune into NXT every Wednesday night at 8pm ET to find out!
