Bobby Roode wants Roderick Stong in a singles match.
After winning the his championship match at NXT Takeover: San Antonio, Roode has his sights set on dominating the rest of the roster in a new "glorious" era One member of the roster his eye are on is the newly signed Roderick Strong. The new NXT Champion told Asbury Park Press Strong is talented and he believes they would produce great matches.
“There’s a lot of talent here, a lot of talent that people haven’t even seen or heard of before that are going to be making their debut soon in NXT. But if there is one name that I haven’t done anything with and would love to do something with in the future, it would be Roderick Strong. We did share some time together before in the past at a different company and we never really touched, we never really had a match. We did have a four-way not too long ago on NXT television, but there are certain times when you’re in this business and you’re in the ring with a guy and you know that given the opportunity to have a match one-on-one that it would be something special. So, I think a guy like Roderick Strong and I could really get in there and tear it up,” said Roode.
Strong debuted in October during the Dusty Rhodes Tag-Team Classic. Like Roode, Strong was victorious in San Antonio as he defeated Andrade Almas. Roode's interview also covered his match against Shinsuke Nakamura, and how he feels they stole the show at NXT Takeover: San Antonio.
The interview with Roode took place on Asbury Park Press' podcast which is available on Soundcloud.
