Former TNA Wrestling star Bobby Roode, who left the promotion this past weekend after a 12-year run with the company, recently spoke with The Peterborough Examiner about his TNA departure and his contract status. Below are some of the highlights from the interview.

On the reason he left TNA:

“It felt like it was the right time. After almost 13 years in a wrestling company I felt like there was nothing really left for me to do there. I wanted to mutually part ways. I have nothing negative to say about TNA Wrestling. They treated me very, very well. It was just a matter of me being in a part of my life where I’m not sure TNA was the right fit for me anymore. The brand has been stale for the last little while and the growth wasn’t there as it was in the early years.”

On his contract status:

“I’m a free agent so I can do anything I want as far as wrestling goes.”
