For those who do not know Eric Young, he is a 18 year veteran and a former Heavyweight Champion. His interview with Cathy Kelly is available on WWE.com.
I received a Breaking News notification from the WWE app last night and when I read it, my first thought was “Who is Eric Young?” I had never heard of him until tonight, so I asked my boyfriend and he said Eric was from TNA. Well that made sense as to why I do not know who he is since I don’t watch TNA. I’ve tried multiple times on several different occasions and just COULD NOT get into it. After watching his interview with Cathy Kelly, I am super stoked he’s apart of NXT – and I haven’t even seen him wrestle yet! And the video WWE recorded of his debut on Facebook Live shows SAMOA JOE IN THE RING HOLDING HIS CHAMPIONSHIP BELT. Do I smell a title match?! Oh I sure do hope so! I know, I’m getting ahead of myself, but just let me.
