Willie Mack was recently a guest on the “411 Wrestling Interviews Podcast”. During the appearance, he discussed his desire to wrestle for the WWE but not being overly interested in going through NXT to get there. Here is what he had to say:
Well, I grew up watching WWE and to get that opportunity to get to go there was great, but I never even got to actually go to the Performance Center officially and start my schedule for my contract. Eventually, I’d like to go there, but if it don’t happen, hey, at least I know I was on their radar because it’s like out of thousands and thousands of people, I got picked, did the tryout, and got a contract, if you think about it. But the way I am, I don’t know if I want to go to NXT or nothing because it’s like they start you all the way over. And it’s like, if you’re already established somewhere, to go there with years of training and experience and whatever you got your name value on, and to start all the way over again, I don’t know if I want to do that.
