Bobby Roode says there were assumptions about his theme song among the Cruiserweights.
Around the time Roode showed up at NXT, the WWE Cruiserweight Classic was also beginning. So many new people showing up at the WWE performance center at the same time caused some confusion. In an interview with Forbes.com Roode explained how his theme song was a source of confusion.
"Well, that’s what [Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano] thought. Right before my NXT TV debut, CWC was just starting up at that time as well. They were taping television right before NXT TV, so my song was playing over and over again throughout the building. So the guys—not just [Ciampa and Gargano], but every one of the cruiserweights—thought that this song, the Glorious song,was going to be the song for the Cruiserweights; like an opening package or an opening song. Little did they know it wasn’t for them, it was for me but they fell in love with the song," said Roode.
His song also became popular with fans. He, Gargano and Ciampa would create "Glorious Bomb" videos on social media which became viral and imitated.
"The Glorious bombs thing started out as just a fun, one-time thing to do and it just blossomed into six, or seven, or eight or nine or 10 maybe even more Glorious," said Roode.
Roode defeated Tye Dillinger at NXT Takeover on Saturday. The two were tag-team partners in the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic before Roode left Dillinger to be attacked in the ring.
Roode also discussed Conor McGregor and his predictions for WWE Survivor Series, which can be found at Forbes.com.
