Jordan was bested by Zack Gibson in the first-round of the U.K. Championship tournament which was held at the 'Download Festival' and following his loss Jordan spoke with his home-country news publication 'The Express Tribune' to discuss his experience with WWE; stating that the company goes out of their may to make everyone seem like a big deal.

“It’s a totally different atmosphere. In the independent circuit, you are mostly on your own but WWE treats you like a star. They take care of everyone." He added, “When I came, all of my fellow performers had been wrestling for 10 to 15 years while I was there with only two and a half years of experience. But it’s because there weren’t many opportunities back then. WWE is globally expanding and there are more doors open now than ever. The British wrestling scene is buzzing and making its own presence in the world.”
