• NXT Wrestler Reveals Why He Was Off TV

During a recent interview with WWE, NXT wrestler No Way Jose talked about being away from NXT for a while, the new comers in NXT and changing his in-ring style.

Below are the highlights:

On why he had to take time off:

“I’ve been away for a little bit. I had to go handle some things, face a little adversity and grow from it. Now I’m back, and the most important thing is what I do from here. Like many people, I began to focus on the past because I wasn’t 100 percent satisfied with the present. The more I progressed, the more I seemed to take a step back, and I knew this was a pattern that couldn’t continue. Somewhere in there, I lost a part of me, and I knew I had to get it back.”

On showing what he has got for the new NXT wrestlers:

“NXT is growing, new people are coming in day after day and seem to be shaking things up. What I want to do is figure out what all the fuss is about. I want to see what these new up-and-comers are all about.

People like uber-popular Adam Cole, people like the ultra-unique Velveteen Dream and even people like Aleister Black. I have seen what they can do, but I know it’s time to show everyone what I am capable of.”

On changing his in-ring style:

“Well, before my last match with Cezar Bononi, there was a man named Lars Sullivan, a huge, powerful, anomaly of a man. And what he did was show me that I needed to tone back on what brought me to the dance, which is the dance. I need to tone back on the hip swivels, and I need to turn up the intensity in the ring.”
