WWE Addresses Bobby Roode at NXT Takeover Dallas

Following his appearance at ringside for NXT Takeover Dallas, WWE posted the following about former TNA Champion Bobby Roode:

As if the sight of Kota Ibushi at NXT TakeOver: Dallas wasn’t enough to get the rumor mill rolling, another highly acclaimed grappler was revealed amid a sea of NXT fans. Former World Champion Bobby Roode was shown watching the liveWWE Network event very closely from his seat in the capacity crowd. But why was the veteran competitor at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas?

Just like with Ibushi, WWE.com can only speculate at the moment, but there are immediate thoughts of dream showdowns between Roode and the NXT roster’s elite. Perhaps Roode was just there to watch the hottest show in town. Or maybe he was there to scout potential future opponents. Going by the reaction of the NXT Universe when Roode was shown in attendance, fans were certainly excited by the prospect of the latter possibility.

Sting Comments On His Future

WWE Hall of Famer Sting recently spoke with FOX Sports to promote the 2016 WWE Hall of Fame ceremony, and he had the following to say on what he might do following his pro wrestling career:

“I’ve always loved real estate, and I’m not talking about being a real estate agent and buying and selling homes or anything like that. I’m talking about dirt. Development, and it could be some residential stuff too. Dirt. Buying and selling dirt… I’ve always wanted to do that.”
