“Just the buzz in the locker room, just the way the shows are put together. How much your opinion is valued. It’s a team effort, and that’s how it feels just one big team effort. I didn’t want to be in RAW or SmackDown, I said that publicly before. I wanted to be apart of NXT, and Hunter bringing me into his baby, wanting me to be a part of it is such a huge honor.”
