  • While it was already known that the song "Glorious" was not originally written for Bobby Roode but for another wrestler whose identify was a mystery up until now. Details have emerged that have identified that wrestler as Shinsuke Nakamura.

  • The story goes that Nakamura was pitched the song but turned it down, feeling that it didn't fit his character. As a result the song was just "sitting there" and Roode was given it and it's ended up making his career while Nakamura's current music - which he ended up having a great deal of influence over - ended up working better for him anyway.

  • The fact that both their music has gotten over so well has allowed WWE to get them to tone their in-ring work down as both Roode and Nakamura are almost 40 years old.
