“It’s totally different. The whole idea of NXT is to prepare you for WWE and it did in a lot of ways, but there’s nothing that’s gonna prepare you for live Monday Night RAW when you’re used to 2,000 people in Pittsburgh at a house show. Obviously, we learned a lot on the TV tapings, but we only did those once a month and if you’re only working one match on the three-episode taping, you’re not getting that many reps that often. For me, it was a huge jump moving to RAW.”
