In an interview with, Williams discussed his release. He emphasized that the experience he gained throughout his time with the company is priceless, and his run with NXT UK helped him come into his own.

“The experience I have gained over the last year, 18 months, is invaluable. I’ve really come into my own and that’s thanks to the NXT UK developmental system.“I made my debut in 2018 on the day I signed my contract with the company. I don’t think many can say that, and to do it 4 hours after signing on 205 in front of the biggest crowd I have performed in front of was an amazing experience and it was great going forward from there.“It’s very easy to think there would be a bitter feel towards the company for all those that have been released, but that’s a naive view, as we all got to live our dreams, gain a wealth of experience and learn so much," Williams said.

Williams also discussed the looming launch of NXT Europe. He noted that he doesn't know much about it, but he'd like to see how it could potentially benefit him.

“We know as much as you at the moment. However, I feel once it is fully in place, it will be a platform that is strong and showcases amazing talent, giving more wrestlers the chance to live their dream and learn from the best minds in the sport. When the time comes, I’d love to see how opportunities within it could benefit me," he said.
