Whenever established stars show up in NXT, fans often start to complain that they are in "developmental" and not on the main WWE roster. Current names like Shinsuke Nakamura and Bobby Roode are the current names that fans claim are languishing in the NXT brand. However, Roode said in an interview with Planeta Wrestling that he is happy right now with his role in NXT.

Bobby Roode and his road to the WWE

Much like AJ Styles, Bobby Roode was a TNA Impact Wrestling original before he ended up making his way to the WWE. Unlike Styles, Roode stayed in Impact Wrestling for almost his entire career before making the jump.

Roode was a former tag team champion as one of the best teams in Impact history, Beer Money, and he was a world champion when he developed into one of the company's top singles stars. Since his only experience came in Impact Wrestling, the WWE chose to bring him in as a star in NXT.

Bobby Roode was an instant NXT star

When Bobby Roode debuted, NXT gave him an over-the-top entrance song in "Glorious" and somehow it caught on huge. He got immediate cheers, and unlike many indie stars showing up in NXT, Roode oozed charisma and was instantly looked at like a main event star. After some minor feuds, Booby quickly got an NXT title shot and beat Shinsuke Nakamura for the NXT title, a belt he holds today.

Roode said that he feels that makes him the captain of the ship and he looks forward to helping NXT reach new levels of success, having no problem with delaying his WWE main roster debut as he does.

Bobby Roode as a main event star

Much like Finn Balor, Kevin Owens, and Samoa Joe before him, Bobby Roode won't stick around NXT forever.

He will be a huge star in the WWE on the main roster and there is a great chance that he ends up as a world champion for either "Monday Night Raw" or "SmackDown Live." Roode says that he is still developing his WWE character and linking his character to his theme song is where it starts. However, as far as Roode is concerned, he has a lot to accomplish in NXT, and with Shinsuke Nakamura likely headed to the main roster, this is a chance for Bobby Roode to prove he belongs in the WWE.
