• NXT Star Wants To Become Stephanie McMahon’s Favorite Wrestler
NXT Stars revealed their New Year Resolutions to WWE and WWE posted an article on it. Below is NXT Star Lars Sullivan’s resolution:
“My New Year’s resolutions are as follows: I plan to win an NXT championship. If you’re in this business and your goal isn’t to win a championship, get out. In fact, I would suggest anyone in my path to just get out anyway — it’ll save you the pain and anguish I will cause you.
I anticipate this becoming a reality by SummerSlam. Number two, become Stephanie McMahon’s favorite wrestler. Mrs. McMahon is a true visionary and pioneer in sports-entertainment.
Mrs. McMahon has always been my favorite authority figure by virtue of her principles, values, morals and ethics. I’d love to have the opportunity to compete on Raw, Mrs. McMahon.
[Smiles] My third resolution is to put at least two people through a table. I won’t lie, when Killian Dain splashed me through the table, it hurt, but I liked it. I’d like to share that feeling with others, so they can feel the pure ecstasy and pleasure that I did.”
