In a post-match interview (h/t Ringside News), Robert Roode let out his anger and frustration at the company. He has been out of in-ring action since April due to the pandemic.

“For the last seven months I had to sit on my couch at home and I had to watch week after week Drew McIntyre that cocky 7-foot tall son of a — walkout to that ring every week, kick people in the head, walk around like he’s the cock of the walk. I was sick of it.”

He looked back at his NXT Days and recalls how McIntyre took his NXT Title as he came back. Roode spoke about how his friend Dolph Ziggler was robbed out of opportunities where McIntyre got everything.

“Dolph was sick of it. Dolph Ziggler, one of the best damn performers this company has ever seen — been there for a decade and every week in RAW Underground he has to prove himself every week — this man shouldn’t have to prove himself to anybody — I shouldn’t have to prove myself to anybody.”

Roode was not happy about sitting at home and was waiting for the return call. He had to wait for 7 months for the call, even though he is a career spanning 23 years.

“I shouldn’t have to sit at home during any time in my career and I shouldn’t have to watch any of this. It was about damn time that I got that phone call. It was about damn time that I was allowed back through these doors.”

On Monday, Drew McIntyre issued an open challenge to anyone and everyone for his WWE Title. First, it seemed Dolph Ziggler is the contender until he welcomed back Roode.

The Glorious One put up a good fight but he ultimately succumbed to McIntyre’s Claymore Kick. He was “that damn close”. He guaranteed next week he will be back and there will be a different result.
