Bobby Roode’s “Glorious” Entrance Was Almost Someone Else’s


NXT Champion Bobby Roode stated in an interview late last year that his theme “Glorious Domination” was not made specifically for him. He also went on to say that it was originally made for someone else by CFO$. Wrestling Observer Newsletter is now reporting that the superstar that the theme was made for was SmackDown Live superstar Shinsuke Nakamura.

Nakamura stated in an interview with ESPN that he was sent a sample of the theme before his debut and he declined the song. WWE pushed for Shinsuke to use the theme but The King of Strong Style insisted that they listen to more samples until they came to an agreement. The song that was agreed upon was “The Rising Sun” that we all hear now and the crowd loves to sing along with. The song is not only a hit with the crowd and Nakamura but it is the number one song produced by CFO$ on iTunes at the moment.

It’s safe to say that it’s a good thing that things turned out the way that they did.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
