Mark Andrews spoke with Metro about a number of pro wrestling topics. Here are some of the highlights:
"I had a great time there, and I definitely think it was the experience I needed for my career. Going into the UK tournament I was the most experienced guy there because of my time spent over the past few years working in America more. Being able to perform in front of a larger TV audience and to be in front of American fans has been a great credit to my career, and if it wasn't for that I don't think I would be in the position I am today."
How WWE approached him:
"It was actually all very sudden. I was pretty lucky that previous contractual agreements that I had ended at the end of the last year, and literally at the very beginning of 2017 I was approached. I'd met William Regal at previous shows last year and he'd given me good feedback on my matches, and he told me to keep in touch with him. But it was the very start of January when I was able to be involved in it."
His future in the WWE:
"At the moment my opinion is that you never say never in WWE, and though we're not entirely sure what's going to happen coming ahead, we're all looking forward to what a UK project can be. I'm really hoping that we can do something based in the UK, and to show everybody how good the talent over here is. When we went out to NXT I like to think we had a really good time showing the fans exactly what the UK talent is all about, and I'm hoping we can keep doing that whether we're in America, or anywhere else. I hope we can show that the UK is the place to be for wrestling at the moment."
Mark Andrews also discussed working with Pete Dunne outside of wrestling, his band, and being an established wrestler at 25. You can read the full interview by clicking here.
