“When I moved down here to Florida, I got an invitation for a tryout at the Performance Center,” he said. “It wasn’t the reason I moved down here; it was for personal happiness. From there I worked with NXT, and they told me to keep in contact. In 2015 I worked with NXT like a handful of times. It felt like I was part of the family. I contacted the office, if I could be part of the NXT Takeover in New York. I had a vision. I went in there with a vision. I did everything I should have done and got me some TV time.”
