Popular NXT star Tye Dillinger was one of the few surprise entrants during last night’s Royal Rumble match and ‘the Perfect Ten’ called it one of the greatest nights of his life:
This is fifteen years in the making for me. This business is full of ups and downs, and I’ve had my fair show. A perfect example of that is last night at TakeOver, I come up a little short. And as I’m still kind of beating myself over the head about the loss to Eric Young, all of a sudden I find myself at number ten in the Royal Rumble in front of 50,000-plus people.
When they write the history books, my name’s in there – and that means the most to me.
If everything ended tomorrow for me, whether that be wrestling – hell, everything – tonight was one of the greatest nights of my life. I don’t know how I’m gonna top this – I’m gonna keep working hard to top it, but at this moment, I can’t even fathom it getting any better than it is now.
