During a recent interview with Hidden Remote, former WWE developmental wrestler & current GFW star Eli Drake talked about working GFW Impact Wrestling, getting an offer to join NXT & more. Below are the highlights:
On if he received an offer to join NXT:
“I will say it’s an option, an option that’s been spoken about. Right now, the time is not right and the offer is not right. I’m enjoying where I am and the freedom I have. I’m getting paid at least decently where I am, so I’ve been enjoying that. There have been options to move on. Without saying too much, nothing that has compelled me enough to leave. Fortunately, I’ve formed strong relationships within the company I’m in, so who knows what the future holds.”
On what he wants to do in GFW rather than leaving for WWE:
“At this point, my goal is to make GFW as big as it possibly can be, along with the 30 or 40 people alongside me. I’m not so much focused on competing with WWE, but if we can start to be in the same conversation as far as getting on that level and getting more eyes on us. I’m not worried about going there or anything else like that. To me, a bigger success than going to WWE would be doubling this company’s reach, tripling its reach, quadrupling its reach.
That would be a bigger success for me than ever going anywhere else. To go from the depths we were at a couple of years ago with people saying we were going out of business and whatnot to bounce back and bring it back up would be much more incredible than anything I can do over there.”
