Eric Young On TNA/NXT Crossover: There's No Reason Why It Can't Blossom Into Bigger Things

Eric Young says the crossover between NXT and TNA is the tip of the iceberg.

NXT and TNA have been working together in recent weeks. Jordynne Grace challenged for the NXT Women's Championship at NXT Battleground, and Tatum Paxley answered Grace's open challenge at TNA Against All Odds. Joe Hendry and Frankie Kazarian then competed in a battle royal on the June 18 episode of NXT.

Speaking with Jim Varsallone of the Miami Herald, Eric Young was asked to comment on the crossover between the two companies.

“It’s a great thing for pro wrestling in general. There’s just no reason why companies can’t work together to benefit everybody. I think you’re seeing literally the seedlings of that. This is just the tip of the iceberg. Obviously, the WWE hold all the cards, they’re the big boys on the block, and they should be. They’ve been around forever. I’m still very friendly with Hunter [Triple H]. We talk, not as often as I’d like, but we still do chit-chat, so it’s a guy that I respect a great deal, and you can see the difference in the product when someone like him is running it. Partnering with AJ [Styles] going to Japan to work for [NOAH], the deal in between TNA and NXT, and I would imagine that blossoms into bigger and better things. There’s no reason for it not to. I can’t guarantee it because I got no say. I got no say, but I support it 100%, I knew it was happening long before it was happening, and it’s a really cool thing to see because the truth is, pro wrestling fans are the ones that benefit, and that’s what we should all be trying to do," Young said.
