Robert Roode reflects on controversial WWE title change

In Total Nonstop Action Wrestling Robert Roode has twice won the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, once the TNA King of the Mountain Championship, twice the NWA World Tag Team Championship (with Eric Young) and six times the TNA World Tag Team Championship (one once with Austin Aries and five times with James Storm).

His first reign as TNA World Heavyweight Champion, which lasted 256 days (October 26, 2011, to July 8, 2012), is the longest in the history of the title. In WWE he won the United States Championship once, once the 24/7 Championship, twice the Raw Tag Team Championship (once with Chad Gable and once with Dolph Ziggler) and once the SmackDown Tag Team Championship (with Dolph Ziggler); when he was in the NXT he won the NXT Championship once.

Roode, who is currently a SmackDown Tag Team Champion with Dolph Ziggler, recently spoke to Sportskeeda Wrestling’s Rick Ucchino. While he had nice things to say about The Street Profits, he questioned the logic behind the controversial 2020 title change.

Will The Street Profits face Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode again?

“We think The Street Profits are a great team. They’re very entertaining, we get it. They’re everything that WWE wants out of their guys. They’re entertaining, they make people laugh, make people smile.

They shake hands, they kiss babies, we get it, right? They’re athletic, young guys, but they’re great former Champions. They had a great run. They did. Almost a year they held the titles for. But let’s face it, they came over to SmackDown and they were handed the Championships.

I don’t ever remember a time when a team was just handed a Championship and all of a sudden they become Champions" - Robert Roode said. Speaking in-character, Robert Roode said The Street Profits “maybe” deserve a SmackDown Tag Team Championship rematch.

Robert Roode is 1/2 of the SmackDown Tag Team Champions with Dolph Ziggler. He has little to complain about right now, but it’s nice to know that he’s not giving up hope on returning to his Glorious gimmick after the Dirty Dawgs are over.

Rey Mysterio is considered to be one of the greatest in-ring performers of the last three decades. With his father's help, Robert Roode believes there is no telling how far Dominik Mysterio can go in the wrestling business.

“He’s obviously doing a lot outside of our SmackDown shows. He’s working hard, he’s studying tape. I’m not sure exactly what he’s doing but I know his dad has a big part in that. Being so young, I think the sky is the limit for this kid”.
