During their latest tour in the UK, Both Triple H and William Regal were interviewed by ESPN and discusses the young talents at NXT.
Here are some highlights:
William Regal recruiting Aleister Black:
“I knew about him for a long time,” said Regal to ESPN.com. “My best friend, Robbie Brookside, had known him for years. I think he was 17 or 18, and he went to a seminar that Robbie was doing in Holland. He met him there, and I’ve kept an eye on him since then, basically. I’ve always just took notice of what’s going on in the wrestling business and who the younger fellas are, and younger ladies, that are interested in this.
“You see the ones with the real passion and desire. So I’ve just kept a tab on him for years, the he started to really come into his own the last few years. His name was getting out there, and he was coming to America quite a bit and doing independent shows. We hooked up and I just said, ‘Whenever you’re ready, give me a call,’ that kind of thing. The next thing, he’s giving me a call. He was at a tryout, Triple H has seen him and … yeah, he’s definitely got something that we’re looking for.”
Triple H on the Authors of Pain:
“There’s a few guys in our performance center right now that are just sort of guys you’ve never heard of that have never been anywhere. Not even in the indies. The two kids in [the Authors of Pain] tag team in NXT. Those are two kids we picked them from nothing. No experience. Period. Anything. A year later, they are a really, really good tag team. There’s a lot of talent like that.”
