Kidd speaks before tomorrow's big show...
- Tyson Kidd recently spoke with WWE.com prior to tomorrow's NXT Takeover special. Here are the highlights…
On The Rebirth Of Tyson Kidd In NXT: It's a fresh coat of paint, a whole new start and a way for the WWE Universe to see Tyson Kidd in a different light than they have for the first few years I've been on the main roster. I think they'll see a more complete package. I'm a constant work in progress, always working on every aspect to get better and better. You're always going to see a different Tyson Kidd. Not that I haven't been in the past, but I'm more motivated, focused and driven than ever before.
What Does He Want To Prove By Competing In NXT?: I'm out to prove that NXT is not to be overlooked, that it's not a stepping stone or an easy place to compete. Every single guy and girl down there is hungry. If you want to stay hungry, you have to compete with similar people. They're so hungry and so driven, there's a different type of atmosphere competing with these guys.
On Challenging For The NXT Title: There are a couple reasons. First, look at Bo Dallas. He's a former NXT Champion, the longest-reigning in history, and he had all those videos on Raw, SmackDown and Main Event. Everyone knew that he was coming. They may not know what he's all about right now, but they know he's coming. Also, it's a great way for me to make a huge impact and help NXT. It springboards me back into the main roster spotlight. I want to use that to bring more awareness to NXT. I want to win the title and defend it around the world and have it seen on "Total Divas." I want the NXT Championship to be worldwide, so everybody knows what it is.
