Who he'd like to work with in the future: "We're all really in the same sort of era. Samoa Joe is a guy that comes to mind. He's a guy that's been to the top of the mountain before, but I really think he's got a lot of legs left and he's really underutilized, and I think that him and I can produce something really special. Austin Aries is a guy that has been the longest-reigning 'X Division' champion, has proven himself all over the world before he even got to TNA, and is well-respected in the industry, so I think he's a guy to look out for and I look forward to working with. But like I said, our roster top to bottom is solid as can be. I think Gunner has a hell of a future, too, as a top guy, so this company is not short on talent, that's for sure."
Greatest memories in TNA: "Obviously winning the world title. For that particular reason, winning the world title, wrestling against my partner, my former partner at the time, that whole change in character, that change in attitude really brought me to where I am today. I mean there's been lots of great memories, some that people saw via pay-per-view, via TV. But one of the greatest memories was in January, overseas doing live events in England, I got an opportunity to do a six-man tag every night. My partners were Kurt Angle and Bully Ray, and we wrestled against Storm, Hulk Hogan and Sting. It was pretty surreal, a pretty cool moment four nights in a row being able to wrestle against Sting and Hulk Hogan at the same time. It's something I can hang my hat on. I've had a lot of great opportunities and a lot of great times here, and hopefully they'll continue."
Much more is contained in the interview, including Roode revealing that he hates social networking as well as talking about how he got his start in TNA and TNA's next pay-per-view, Destination X. You can check out the full interview by clicking here.
