Prior to signing with the sports entertainment company, he competed under the banner of the likes of Ring of Honor, PWG and other promotions.
After being in the pro wrestling business for nearly 10 years, he made it known in this interview that he thinks the sky’s the limit for NXT, which is a third brand in WWE that launched in 2012, from here over the next 5-10 years.
“The sky is the limit. Like I briefly mentioned earlier, it has been almost two years for me that I have joined the NXT roster, and even the growth from then has been unbelievable,” stated Cole. “This brand, and I am going to call it a brand, continues to grow and grow and we are getting more and more people checking out NXT TV and the NXT pay-per-view events. I really believe there is a special thing that is specifically happening to the NXT brand, and the more people that watch and lay their eyes on it, they walk away going I am going to continue to watch and support that because I love that.
“As long as it continues to happen the brand is going to grow more and more. Really, the sky is the limit where NXT can go. It is a really cool thing to see how far NXT has risen and it is the hottest it has ever been. I am really glad to be part of it. It is really cool.”
