Bobby Roode joined "The Chad Dukes Wrestling Show" and 106.7 The Fan/CBS Radio DC's Chad Dukes for an interview at the TNA Basebrawl event on September 1st. Roode discussed a number of topics including the state of tag team wrestling, the mix of talent in TNA, Austin Aries and more. Here are some highlights:

Tag team wrestling: I was a huge tag team wrestling fan growing up and then, even getting into the business, I was a huge tag team wrestling fan. So being a part of a couple great tag-teams, Team Canada of course, was what got my start here in TNA over eight years ago and of course Beer Money. That success as a team is something that I'll never forget and it was a good time while it lasted. That kinda transitioned me into where I'm at now or at least where I was as the world heavyweight champion and I started my singles run that way.

His rivalry with Austin Aries: "I think just chemistry-wise, I think we've had some great matches and we never really, before this program started with him and I, we never touched each other. We never wrestled each other before and I didn't know really much about him and he really didn't know much about me. The contrast in styles was something I think maybe people thought wouldn't work, but I think we changed everybody's mind. And I think if there's ever an opportunity for him and I to go at it again, I think we'll accomplish what we did, if not do things even better."
