Roode talks Download Festival

Luke Morton of TeamRock.com is featuring an interview with NXT Champion Bobby Roode talking about NXT touring the Download Festival in England this month.

“NXT was always looked at as a developmental territory until the last year or so, but now we’re doing our own events and travelling all over the world, coming to Download two years in a row. We’re touring all the time, we get home on Monday then we’re home for a day and a half then we’re back on the road again. It’s a crazy business, I’ve been doing it for almost 20 years, and you learn a lot along the way and a lot of guys don’t make it this long because mentally they can’t handle the stress or travel. I love the business, I have a huge passion for it, I see myself doing this for the rest of my life.”
