Triple H has spoken about two of the WWE Performance Center’s newest recruits for the first time since their signings were announced.
“These are two kids are, I think, I’m very impressed with the things that they’ve done, but I don’t know that they really had a lot of helping hand to help have them get to where they are,” he said asked by Satin what he thought of the duo.
“They just sort of figured it out on their own,” he continued. “They’ve figured out personality and charisma. They’ve figured out the in-ring style they have and made it their own. I’m a big fan of that.”
He expressed his excitement at being able to see what they can do, and said they were both “humble and hungry.”
“When I meet kids like them where they are so passionate about this and want it so bad. Man, they just want that opportunity and then if you give them that opportunity, ‘I’m gonna run through a brick wall and I’m going to prove to you.'”
Xavier and Wentz — real names Deveon Everheart Aiken and Zachary Green — were two thirds of The Rascalz. The trio performed with numerous independent promotions as well as with Impact Wrestling. The third member of the team, Trey Miguel, also parted ways with Impact, but is yet to sign elsewhere.
The duo joined the Performance Center alongside four other new recruits:
- Alex Brandenburg, who was known on the indies as Alex Zayne
- Sojiru “Ikemen” a 26-year-old wrestler from Japan who was trained by WWE/ECW legend Tajiri
- Anriel Howard, a former college basketball player
- Russ Taylor, who was known on the indies as Ryan Taylor
Congrats to all the new signees!
