While appearing on the latest episode of Busted Open Radio for a recent interview, Chance and Carter spoke about their call-up and how it doesn't feel real just yet.

Chance: "It’s just surreal. We’ve been working for this for so long and together as a team as well. We’ve had the opportunity to stay together for four years now as a team so, to be able to share this moment and finally be there, it just doesn’t feel real yet, it’s only been a week."

Carter: "It hasn’t kicked in yet, it hasn’t kicked in yet."

When the pair were asked if they knew about their call up ahead of time, Chance went into detail about how they were actually pretty sure they weren't going to get drafted to either main roster brand.

Chance: No. We actually were pretty sure it wasn’t happening. Not only did we not know, we thought we weren’t [getting called up]. Especially when the Women’s Tag Champs got brought up, we were like ‘Man, that’s the tag team that they’re taking and that’s it’, you know? Then, the very last [second], at like 10:30pm on Monday and we’re at the watch party and we were like ‘I think it’s over’ and then they just like, said our names and we were like ‘Wait, what’s happening? What brand did they even say?’"
