Bobby Roode and Roderick Strong brawled backstage during a photo shoot

Bobby Roode and Roderick Strong get into a fight before NXT: WWE NXT, June 21, 2017

The bad feelings between the NXT Champion and his would-be challenger boil over when they cross paths during a locker room photo shoot.

It might be Bobby Roode’s NXT, but Roderick Strong has had enough of The Glorious One’s trash talk.

After reports surfaced earlier today of a fight breaking out between Strong and the NXT Champion, video of the incident revealed exactly what transpired between the two: As Roode was taking part in a photo shoot, he taunted Strong, who was passing through the studio area with his fiancée, Marina Shafir, and their infant son. When the NXT Champion asked Shafir if she wanted to find out “what it’s like to be with a real man,” Strong exploded and went after Roode.

Fellow NXT Superstars rushed in to break up the brawl, but that won’t be the case on the July 5 episode of NXT, when Roderick Strong challenges Bobby Roode for the NXT Championship in a newly announced title match.
