Rawley talks about NXT guys not wanting to leave Submitted by Aaron Rift on 09/10/2019 at 09:30 PM
Mojo Rawley recently did an interview with SportingNews.com and here are the highlights...
On NXTís Move To USA Network:
The monster that NXT has grown into is nothing short of unbelievable. To having been there from very earlier stages from when FCW (Florida Championship Wrestling) progressed to NXT and starting out in essentially that little barn, the dingy gym if you want to call it, in Tampa to the Performance Center in Orlando and seeing the ride in-between, itís been unreal but itís well-deserved. Itís well-earned and itís what the people want. So, itís awesome that theyíre going to be prime time on USA.
On NXTís Rise:
They are as unique as it comes and thatís why theyíve been upgraded to this platform. Then, NXT was essentially a stepping stone, an opportunity to showcase what youíve got with the only goal to get to the main roster. Now, thereís guys on NXT that have no desire to move to ĎRAWí or ĎSmackDowní because a lot of people donít consider moving to ĎRAWí or ĎSmackDowní a vertical move anymore. A lot of people now consider it a horizontal move.
On Being Present At The WWE Performance Center:
Thatís really the only reason I still live in Orlando ó is to go in on my off-days and train with Sean Hayes who puts on a world-class, all-encompassing fitness routine as far as nutrition, strength building, body maintenance, everything and you have the training program there and the staff there. Thereís a new trainer there every week, I feel like and all of the guest coaches. Itís something special. I take advantage of it.
On NXT Providing Opportunities For Talent:
Wherever the opportunity is, wherever your talents will best suit you as far as whatever show, thatís where you should be especially with the fact that NXT is on USA. Itís a level playing field now. Now itís just a matter of aligning your talent in the right field and taking it from there. And now, being on USA, the platform just keep growing. I donít think being on USA will be the end-all. I donít think itís going to be the last big move or big step for NXT. Itís just going to keep growing. I donít know what comes after this, but Iím excited to see.
