One of wrestling’s biggest free agents finally makes his WWE debut

WWE’s developmental promotion has been teasing the appearance of Bobby Roode for months now. They showed him on-screen for NXT Takeover: Dallas in April, and he made a very brief appearance on-screen during the NXT Takeover: The End special event on Wednesday.

Well, WWE decided to stop being a tease and Roode made his debut during an NXT live even in England this weekend.

Judging by the chants of “Holy s**t!”, I think the crowd was excited to see him.

Roode is a two-time TNA heavyweight champion and an eight-time tag team champion. He actually had a previous stint with WWE back in the early-00s, but he never appeared on the RAW or Smackdown programs.

With NXT, though — which has become a hot part of WWE recently — Roode might get a chance to have some actual success with the world’s biggest wrestling promotion this time.

Bo was born in Atlanta, GA, and has always been a savvy sports follower. He attended Georgia Tech and has previously worked with ESPN TrueHoop, HawksHoop, and the Georgia Tech Newsroom. He covers national college football for FanBuzz.
