It is time for the second part of Who is Roderick Strong.

We see Roderick with his fiancé and they are getting their baby’s crib ready.  He mentions that his finace is Marina Shafir and she was part of MMA’s Four Horsewomen.  He says it is a situation he never expected to be in.  He is engaged and now he is going to be a dad.  He talks about things he needs to work on before the baby is born.

He says people dream to be with your soulmate and it has come true for him.  He is able to look in the mirror and determine that he is the best person possible.  Marina says that Roderick has wanted to take over the world since she met him.

Roderick’s mom says that he was born to do this. 

He says he saw a world beyond St. Petersburg.  Whatever success there was, he will get it.  He saw wrestling on television but he did not know how good independent wrestling good be.  That was where you could make mistakes and get away wit it.  It prepares you to get to this level.  WWE is a whole new ball game.

Roderick says the process of getting to NXT was a couple year journey.  He did not know if coming to NXT or WWE was for him.  It would have bothered him if he did not try.  He says you learn it is about more than wrestling.  Ring of Honor was where pure wrestlers thrive.  He wanted to earn people’s respect.  He was with Ring of Honor for 13 years and he became Mr. ROH.

Roderick says he wanted the opportunity and he got the call asking if he signed anywhere and then he got the chance in NXT.  He says he finally made it.  He says he is a workhorse.  Roderick says he is where no one thought he would be.  If he could go back in time and tell himself as a child, he would tell himself ‘Don’t be afraid and everything will be okay’.

We see Roderick and Marina bringing their son home.

He says he is not just doing it for himself.  He says professional wrestling saved his life and he is motivated by so many things and it will not change.  When he reaches the pinnacle of becoming NXT Champion, he is not doing it for himself.  He is doing it for his fiancé and his son.  Now he gets to do something for his family.

William Regal is with Bobby Roode in Regal’s office.  William says he wants to talk about Bobby’s opponent at NXT Takeover in Chicago.  Bobby says he thinks Regal is doing a great job.  Bobby says that Hideo Itami is reckless.

William says that Bobby is trying to say that Hideo has not earned his opportunity.  William says that he was impressed with Roderick Strong so next week Roderick will face Hideo Itami and the winner will face him at Takeover in Chicago.

Roderick Strong enters the office and Bobby has a stare down before he leaves.
