Roderick Strong & Bobby Roode In-Ring Promo:
Strong wants to be honest with you because the last seven or eight months have been a roller coaster ride for him. He’s in NXT, he has a beautiful fiance and baby boy at home. Strong opened up to the NXT Universe about something he’s been ashamed of because he didn’t want to be judged. Strong has been accepted with open arms and he thanks everyone. When Strong first came here, he came for one reason, the NXT Championship. Strong life has never been better but there’s one thing he wants and the one thing he needs, the NXT Championship.
It’s no longer Roddy versus the World, it’s Roddy, Marina and Tory versus the World. That motivates him to be better and to be the WWE NXT Champion. Bobby Roode comes out to interrupt Strong. Roode is fake crying. That was such an emotional story and he was pulling on the heart strings. Strong is standing in an NXT ring in front of the NXT Universe, he must be proud. Roderick Strong winning matches, finally. He has a marginally hot fiance and his son is relatively normal so he should be proud.
Roode gets that Strong wants to be on the marquee with the champ. Diapers are expensive. Strong wants to play the Bobby Roode lottery. He spent his hard earned money and hope to hit the numbers to get out of the trailer park and move to the mansion on the hill. That’s not how it works in Bobby Roode’s NXT. Strong can’t wave a wand and get a title match. Roode says that Strong is a good hand, but he should stay in his own lane. Maybe one day, Strong’s family can take a selfie together and he can show it to his little guy and say here’s the champ and your dad. Don’t play the Bobby Roode lottery because you’re not man enough to win. Roode wishes Strong the best of luck.
