TMZ Sports is featuring an interview with NXT star Matt Riddle where he talks about comparisons of the NXT product to WWE’s main roster.
Riddle pointed out how the products are very different.
“We’re different. We’re new. We’re fresh. We’re not like the same kind of watered down child’s product that WWE’s has kind of turned into a lot. When people watch us (NXT), it’s more real. It’s more believable.”
Riddle also talked about why staying in NXT could help grow the brand even more instead of making the jump to RAW or Smackdown Live.
“Well, maybe I’m thinking about it wrong (on jumping to the main roster). Because NXT is so hot, maybe we should stay and try and make NXT bigger than RAW and Smackdown and just be, the big guy. You know, which isn’t impossible.”
