RAW Tag Team Champion Bobby Roode spoke to The Mirror. He explained in detail the difficulties WWE superstars go through and also why he continues to fight to retain his spot in the company.
WWE has many talent superstars on all three brands and there is simply a lot of competition. Bobby Roode says he is definitely lucky that he took part in storylines and also won championships on both RAW and Smackdown.
“It’s one of those things, everyone wants that opportunity to show what they can do.
“But there are so many hours of television… I have been very fortunate to be at the forefront of that and be in storylines on Raw and Smackdown now.
“So it is competitive, but I think everybody has an understanding of how it works and how things are going – you have to be patient and stay positive.
“If you aren’t on TV one week, hopefully the next week you’ll have that opportunity to go out there, whether it be a five minute match or a backstage promo.
“You just have to make the best of every opportunity you get and hope something sticks.”
Roode also explained how WWE superstars do far more than just compete for fans. They travel to various locations around the world to compete for fans at live events as well.
“It’s a grind. At the weekend alone, we travelled from Tallahassee, Florida to Fort Myers – that’s over six and a half hours and 500 miles.
“So not only are we beating ourselves up in the ring, but we’re in our cars driving 400 miles a night to get to the towns.
“It’s a grind, but at least I get to do what I love to do. That’s all part and parcel of the game.
“You get to travel around the world and enjoy new experiences… I’ve always said, your worst day in sports entertainment is still better than your best day digging ditches.”
We will have to wait and see how long Bobby Roode and Chad Gable hold onto their championships and remain an integral part of the company.
