No Way Jose recently spoke with the official WWE website for an in-depth interview. Featured below are some of the highlights.
On being away from NXT television: "I've been away for a little bit. I had to go handle some things, face a little adversity and grow from it. Now I'm back, and the most important thing is what I do from here. Like many people, I began to focus on the past because I wasn't 100 percent satisfied with the present. The more I progressed, the more I seemed to take a step back, and I knew this was a pattern that couldn't continue. Somewhere in there, I lost a part of me, and I knew I had to get it back."
On proving himself to the NXT fanbase: "NXT is growing, new people are coming in day after day and seem to be shaking things up. What I want to do is figure out what all the fuss is about. I want to see what these new up-and-comers are all about. People like uber-popular Adam Cole, people like the ultra-unique Velveteen Dream and even people like Aleister Black. I have seen what they can do, but I know it's time to show everyone what I am capable of."
On altering his style inside the squared circle: "Well, before my last match with Cezar [Bononi], there was a man named Lars [Sullivan], a huge, powerful, anomaly of a man. And what he did was show me that I needed to tone back on what brought me to the dance, which is the dance. I need to tone back on the hip swivels, and I need to turn up the intensity in the ring."
