NXT star recently spoke to Scott Fishman of The Miami Herald where he discussed about a lot of interesting stuffs. Here are some highlights;

Being told the night before he might be on RAW:
“Essentially, I had a mixed reaction to it because it was not quite a debut. In a way, there was a weight off your shoulders in that respect thinking, ‘This is my only chance! This is my only chance!’ It was sort of, ‘Yeah, I’m going to be on Raw. Then maybe I will stay on Raw. Maybe I won’t.’ I haven’t been on Raw since, but I was on Raw so that seed has been planted.”

His history with Kevin Steen:
“We’ve just been through a lot together. I’ve known him for such a long time. I haven’t known him since day one, but I’ve definitely known him since day two. It’s been about 11 years, almost 12 years. I’ve known him for a really long time. He is just extremely talented, so it’s not just, ‘Oh good, my buddy is here.’ It is, but he is so good. I’m happy for him on a business level from a performer’s perspective because I have someone great to work with. He really is. In a weird way, it would be us coming full circle if we met in a WWE ring. I’m like almost nostalgic thinking back, ‘Remember when we did this.’ I just remember working him in literally a bar in farm towns in Quebec. I just remember doing these drives in Quebec and just talking about getting out of Quebec. That was the hard part. Now we are here, which is so cool.”

Triple H and the future:
“I have a lot of faith in Triple H as far as in that I know he wants the best for us, for this business and company. It’s not just NXT and his guys, but WWE. So I think he obviously wants us to be featured in the best possible way when it does happen. I think it may be a good starting point, but I have a lot of faith that everything will be alright.”

Sam Roberts recently talked to the Lunatic Fringe Dean Ambrose. The video of the interview is also available on youtube. Below are some highlights; 

When guys like Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns get injured, does he see it as an opportunity to grab that spot?
“Injuries are always unfortunate and sometimes if things are spread a little thinner, you might have to put more work on your plate that night because the show must go on. I’m not trying to take anyone’s spot in the business. I’m trying to have my own spot that no one can take because it’s my spot, it’s my thing. I’m trying to do my thing, not really worried about where everybody else is. But stuff happens and you just have to roll with the punches. It’s a dog-eat-dog world out there and there’s only so much screen time on a Monday Night RAW. So when the herd gets a little thinner, you got to step up and take the responsibility of it. In some ways we’re all on the same team here, we’re trying to entertain the world and put on a hell of a show every night.”

Comparisons to Brian Pillman, Steve Austin and others:
“I’ve watched so much wrestling and studied everybody that I don’t pattern myself off anyone particularly, or trying to fill any particular role. I’m just a weird mismatch of a million different styles and influences and experience. I really don’t know what’s going to happen when I go out there. What you see is what you get and you might get a different thing on a different night, every night. I’m trying to make my own spot.”
