JBL reveals who he thinks will be a big star from NXT...
- WWE announcer and NXT commissioner JBL was interviewed on The Damn Good Wrestling podcast. Below are some highlights.
JBL on if there was one guy who could get called up to WWE from NXT, who would it be: "Adrian Neville. Not a doubt in my mind. I think he's just phenomenal. I don't know about his promo skills as I haven't seen them as much, but he's a guy who could go out there and perform on any card, anywhere in the world and be a help to that card. I would love to see him up in the WWE. He'll be there I just don't know the time frame."
JBL on the English stars of NXT: "I believe Paige will be a big star, but as far as shaking up the (divas) division goes that remains to be seen. I hope she does but you don't know until they get there. Danny Burch, I saw him cut a promo the other day which I thought was phenomenal. In fact I told him afterwards that it was one of the best promos I've heard done in recent memory. Danny Burch, I'm a big fan of his I think he will do well it's just a matter of finding a spot for him."
JBL on why it takes longer for some guys to get called up: "You don't want to bring guys in just to bring them in, you want to bring them in and make an impact with them like they have with these other guys and I think that's why it takes longer sometimes than what people want."
JBL on his experience with NXT: "It's a revitalization for me. I haven't been around anything other than the WWE for 15-20 years and so for me to see more of how I started and the passion, not just with the performers but with the crowd down there, it's a great environment."
