The La Crosse Tribune recently interviewed WWE United States champion Bobby Roode. Below are some highlights.

Roode on WWE testing out Facebook Watch for their programming: ďThatís the trend right now. When I started, it was all about TV ratings. But TV ratings arenít the way they used to be, you canít go by just the TV rating you get. Now, weíre really dialed into the social media ratings, hits or what hashtag is being used the most. Weíre social media-driven now, the social media team is huge in WWE. It really helps expand our brand.Ē

Bobby Roode on the importance of social media: ďWith social media, you take the good and the bad of it. You have to make the most of the opportunities. You can use social media to your benefit to expand your character and gets eyes on you and what youíre doing.Ē

Roode on the fan reaction to his entrance: ďItís pretty amazing. When I was breaking into the business in 1998, the music was huge. Stone Cold Steve Austinís glass breaking, The Undertaker, D-Generation X, itís part of what made those guys popular. Itís what the fans are reacting to. Itís part of the performance, from the curtain to the ring, itís all part of it.Ē
