• “He’s the perfect Pro Wrestler” – Former World Champion On Robert Roode
During an interview with Whatculture, former TNA World Heavyweight Champion Eric Young had big praise for his former opponent & tag team partner, current WWE RAW Superstar Robert Roode (fka Bobby Roode).
Below is what Young said:
“Bobby Roode would probably be my favorite [opponent]. I think he’s one of — right now is probably the most underrated guy in the world. I think he’s the perfect pro wrestler.
He’s a friend of mine and it’s gonna sound biased but, I’ve wrestled everybody, you know? I mean, you name it, I’ve shared a ring with ‘em and it’s nothing against other people.
We talked about that three-way between Bobby and Austin [Aries] and me is one of my favorite matches of all-time. Me and Bobby versus A.M.W. at Victory Road from years and years ago was unbelievable for a bunch of reasons.
Me and Bobby, Last Man Standing in Wembley is probably my favorite TNA match, IMPACT match of all-time.”
Roode is also a former TNA World Heavyweight Champion. Below are his accomplishments in WWE so far:
– 1x United States Champion
– 2x RAW Tag Team Champion
– 1x SmackDown Tag Team Champion
– 1x NXT Champion
– 1x 24/7 Champion
