He has been wrestling for ten years all over the world, but last week was the most amazing night of his life. The most important thing about last week is the title on his shoulder. This is validation. This is a message to everyone and anyone. That message is anything is possible.
Take one look at him. He is not your prototypical champion. He is not the biggest guy. He looks like some elf-man. He is from a small town in the Northeast of England that no one has ever heard of. And then there is the accent. He asks Renee if she understands what he is saying. He says that it is a struggle and sometimes he does not understand himself. You can question his look or how he sounds, but you cannot question what he does in the ring. The NXT Championship is proof that he is the very best in the ring.

He wouldn’t have to come out here to introduce himself if he was able to compete on Arrival. Instead he is facing a guy who still thinks he can be a WWE Superstar. There is still something sticking in his head. That is Sami Zayn and his ‘rematch of the year’ against Cesaro. When was the last time he won?
