WWE Cruiserweight Classic competitor Zack Sabre Jr. recently spoke to ESPN for an interview. Here are some highlights:
On Daniel Bryan giving him advice:
“I’ve been picking his brains about some stuff. He’s given me some good pointers. His commentary with Mauro Ranallo is remarkable. I love it.
“To have him involved in the project gives an authenticity to the fans, especially the kind of fans that were already invested in the idea of this tournament. But if you’re a fan who isn’t familiar with international wrestling, with independent and cruiserweight wrestling, I think having Daniel involved in this project is such a huge benefit.”
On if he can see himself joining NXT:
“I think it’s definitely appealing. What NXT has become, I could definitely see myself in that environment. I would benefit from it. But I do have a personal journey as a professional wrestler that I want to travel.
“There are a lot of things I want to achieve. There are still some bits and pieces that I’ve got on coming up. I’m very happy doing what I’m doing now. I have other aspirations, so we’ll just see what happens.”
