Former three times NXT Tag Team Champion Kyle O’Reilly recently spoke on his first singles run in the NXT. He is currently receiving a main event push for the NXT Championship and we are hoping to see him as the NXT champion soon.
Kyle O’Reilly started his professional wrestling career back in 2005 in Canada. He wrestled all over the independent circuit. She has been a household name in the Ring of Honor where he wrestled for eight long years.
Kyle O’Reilly Speaks On His Big Singles Run
In 2017 he left the Ring Of Honor and joined WWE. He started his career in the NXT as a member of the famous NXT stable the Undisputed Era led by Adam Cole. Like the rest of the members of the Undisputed Era, O’Reilly was really loved by the fans.
Earlier this year, the fan favourite stable has been disbanded and all the wrestlers involved in the stable started moving solo. Like the others, O’Reilly is also having a singles run right now. She could not win the NXT Championship yet but it looks like WWE is considering him as a Contender.
Recently, Kyle O’Reilly spoke to TV Insider where he discussed his current singles run in the NXT. Here is what he had to say;
“It has certainly been challenging. I’ve had singles experience, but this is new for me coming to WWE and NXT. Those singles matches were few and far between. It has definitely put me into the deep end. I’ve grown and evolved because we all have those dreams of becoming a singles champion in WWE. I love tag team wrestling, and I think I’m a good tag team wrestler. But this is something new.”
Why he feels Takeover PPVs feel special;
“I think NXT has done such a tremendous job making these TakeOver events so special. I feel like if you just put us on normal shows like Raw and SmackDown, NXT would lose its gusto, and it wouldn’t be as special. With that said, an NXT guy popping up at the Royal Rumble is cool. I can get behind an NXT title match on a WrestleMania would be cool. But it doesn’t have to happen because NXT is doing a tremendous job at standing out on its own as the best pro wrestling on television.”
