General & Others Oda confirms that "rooftop" wasn't his idea and that he was pressured to do it.

This explains everything: the overlay stupid chapters where people were just running and doing nothing, the 5 supernova line up, Zoro and Luffy di*ksu*king (especially Zoro), insane Yonko nerfe etc.

He is talking about chapter 1000 not Rooftop.
Chapter 1000th is the rooftop lol. Oda literally says that he had no intention of doing it.

It was his idea as he did came up with it.

He just had about 20 chapters to lead up to it.

(Officially) 980 was released in May 2020, while 1000 was released in January 2021.

So, in all that time he could plan it out.

The seeds of it was most visible in chapter 987 where the scabbards went up first.
It doesn't matter since it was never part of the plot, the editors wanted a massive fanservice orgy for the retarted stans of the series, so Oda was pressured to do it. Oda actually says that the editors had ideas ready for chapter 1000th, he just had to give them the green light.

He is talking about chapter 1000 not Rooftop.
It implies that he had to figure out a way to do something "surprising" or hype worthy for the chapter.

The structure of the rooftop then back to the other fights honestly seems very odd. Like, in the grand scheme of things, it did make the entertainment value of the raid increase, but its funny because the "real" fights didn't start until after 1010.

Now Luffy is fighting him alone. Now Kid/Law are fighting BM. Now the Calamities are being tackled by Zoro and Sanji, but for some time that wasn't the case and it was a jumbled mess of random skirmishes

I assume that in the original plot Zoro and Sanji were spoused to fight against King and Queen form the beginning, without the stupid dragging of the plot.

You're making a mountain out of an anthill lol

All this could mean is he had to delay Luffy's arrival to the rooftop or reestructure the chapters leading up to it, not that the fight as a whole wouldn't happen.
I'm sure that Kid would eventually end up in rooftop, but I'm not so sure about Law, especially Zoro and Killer who had their opponents to deal with.
