– WWE published an interview with NXT authority figure Dusty Rhodes, who talks about the new faction of Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns invading WWE and raising hell. Here are some highlights.
Why they are targeting Ryback: “They picked the right guy, because sometimes the way to become the next big thing is by going after the biggest dog in the yard. They really believe – they’d talk to me about this – that guys like Ryback are ‘just one-dimensional,’ and that’s quoting these three guys.”
The group making an impact: “In our developmental system, there’s one thing we’re always preaching: make an impact. I’m not condoning the actions of these three guys. But they see the youth movement. They see the Kofi Kingstons and Damien Sandows of WWE, and they want to be part of it. I always told them, ‘If you see the opportunity, you have to take it.’”
“As a coach and a teacher and mentor, as well as the GM of NXT , I know that all of these kids are told to step up to the plate and hit a home run. Ambrose, Rollins and Reigns just got tired of seeing the other guys out there, making money that could be theirs. They want those WWE roster spots, and they’re ready to knock down doors.”
– According to PWTorch, the entrance theme song for the new NXT group is rumored to be a song titled, “I’m Telling You” by the Cincinnati-based band “Damn It To Hell”
