Recently departed TNA star Bobby Roode was interviewed by The Peterborough Examiner in Canada on Monday about his decision to leave the company this past weekend.

The following is an excerpt from the interview, with Roode commenting on his decision to leave and why he feels like the TNA brand is currently stale:

“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.” Peterborough’s Bobby Roode a free agent after leaving TNA Wrestling
