– Eric Young spoke with Niagara This Week to promote the House of Harcore 13 event in Niagara Falls, Ontario. During the interview, Young was asked about his future with WWE. According to Young, he has not signed a contract with the company., but he is in the middle of working out the details.
“It was in the works. I was supposed to go and talk with Hunter (WWE executive Paul Levesque). They reached out to me, and there was an opportunity. Hunter and I hit it off right away, joking like we had known each other for 10 years. About half way through the day he called me aside to see if I’d be interested in doing a promo with the NXT champion Samoa Joe to start the show. I went and grabbed my stuff out of my rental and we got to business. The crowd reaction was insane. I figured it would be decent, but it was insane.”
“We are working on contract stuff now, but there isn’t a final pen to paper yet.”
– Speaking of NXT, Bobby Roode has indeed signed a contract with the company. WWE advertised him via Twitter for the upcoming NXT UK tour for June, but WWE pulled the tweet quickly.
