Bobby Roode “hoping” for a WWE PPV in the UK


I joined Bobby Roode on a WWE conference call designed to promote WWE’s upcoming European Tour in November. I asked Bobby about a possible WWE PPV here in the UK, and his “glorious” entrance...

Nicknamed “the glorious one” (because of his entrance theme “Glorious”), Bobby Roode spoke to ASBO during a WWE conference call, and answered a question that has been budding for many years now. Will there be a WWE pay-per-view taking place in the UK?

“I’m hoping personally that it’s gonna happen sooner than later”, Roode told ASBO. “You know, I think that the UK is a perfect spot to have a pay-per-view out there. You know, I think the only challenge may be is the time difference. That could be the challenge, but obviously, the fans over there are very passionate about the WWE, and they have been asking for a pay-per-view for quite a while. Like I said, I’m hoping that it can happen sooner than later. And when it does, it’s gonna be pretty special”.

Bobby Roode recently debuted on one of the WWE’s top two shows, Smackdown Live, which airs Wednesdays on Sky Sports at 1.00am. His entrance has become a popular part of WWE television, due to his very catchy song— when combined with Bobby’s elaborate robes, it makes for quite the spectacle.

When asked if he has thought about what his entrance might be like at the WWE’s grand show, Wrestlemania. Bobby had this to say: “Well, for me, I just basically take one day at a time”.

“Obviously Wrestlemania is coming up on us fairly quick, and next thing you know, it’s gonna be here. I haven’t really put too much thought into it as of yet, but it’s always in the back of your mind. You know, just getting started here on Smackdown - I had my first pay-per-view last weekend at Hell in a Cell, and it went very well.

You know, like I said, I’m just taking one day at a time. The goal is to be a part of Wrestlemania, but I gotta put that work in and prove myself here, and hopefully get that opportunity”.
