Somehow, it seems Bobby Roode and Matt Hardy are two of the hottest acts in wrestling.
In the case of the former, a lot of it has to do with a great theme song from the WWE music team of CFO$. But a lot of hard work has gone into Roode even being in the right spot for his “Glorious” NXT launch.
A late night Tweet showing the journey of a young Robert Roode, once an extra on WWE television, to now, after his entrance was one of the more talked about elements of TakeOver: Brooklyn II, shows just how far he’s come over the course of 15 years.
Sometimes the road is long .... But at the end it can be #Glorious pic.twitter.com/QEBc2QF26F— Bobby Roode (@REALBobbyRoode) August 21, 2016
The Tweet caught the eye of one of sports and entertainments most vocal supporters of hard work, who reTweeted it along with an encouraging message for Roode:
Such a cool post. Some 15yrs later. Very happy for you my friend. Be the hardest worker in the room. @WWENXT @WWE https://t.co/mdC4iLdgzs— Dwayne Johnson (@TheRock) August 21, 2016
The former TNA World champ acknowledged the gesture from the Hollywood titan, and they bonded over a shared love of breakfast carbs:
@TheRock thank you, and you know I will.....Celebrated with pancakes this morning! I know you would approve! https://t.co/4Dx0cJNf7K— Bobby Roode (@REALBobbyRoode) August 21, 2016
