Scott Fishman recently interviewed Jason Jordan for Channel Guide Mag, who was promoting American Alpha's title rematch against The Revival at NXT Takeover: The End on Wednesday, June 8th on the WWE Network. Below are a couple of highlights:
How the brand split will affect NXT:
"There is going to be a need for more and more talent... I think NXT can definitely carry the burden of producing top tier talent. I think because how hot a brand NXT is, we've proven that we can take that workload and show everyone that we have some of the greatest superstars in the world. I think the brand split will be good for everyone as a whole. I think more NXT guys will get opportunities on Raw and SmackDown."
If there is more pressure in their rematch with The Revival:
"I don't there is any added pressure going into this one. I think the first TakeOver we wrestled each other we added a bit of pressure on ourselves because we wanted to break through and show the talent we have, all four of us. It think now that is out there, I don't think there is any added pressure. We want to continue to evolve this tag team division and show that we are two of the best period. So I think TakeOver will give a glimpse into that. We are two extremely competitive teams.
"We are all extremely driven. We love sports entertainment. I just don't believe there is so much added pressure. I understand there are these expectations, but we 100 percent believe that we can definitely steal the show at TakeOver. That is our goal. Our goal is to steal the show at TakeOver: The End and continue to put the tag team division on the map and NXT. Of course, we want to push the talent on Raw and SmackDown and show them what NXT can do. That competitive nature that we all have is definitely going to be good for the brands. I think it's going to take everything to a whole new level."
Jordan also discussed Performance Center talents stepping up as NXT stars move to the main roster, his chemistry with Chad Gable, rejuvenating the tag team division and much more.
