MSK: If You Don't Grow At The WWE Performance Center, It's On You

After a successful run on the Independent scene and IMPACT Wrestling, MSK (formerly The Rascalz) signed with WWE in December 2020.

It didn't take long for the duo to get comfortable in WWE as they were quickly on NXT television.

Speaking to Sean Waltman on Pro Wrestling 4 Life, MSK (Wes Lee & Nash Carter) discussed their transition into WWE and how quickly they've adapted.

"Seeing Shawn and Triple H, those were the upper echelon guys and makes me want to bring an extra gear because I know that I have to perform. They are some of the greatest of all time so I have to step it up and try to be that way. It's a pushing thing and I have like a competition with myself," said Nash.

Wes added, "It's ignited a fire with us and getting more in the flow with how things work. When you're more comfortable, you're able to give a little more. That's what has happened. They made it easy for us to transition like it was home immediately. When you feel like you're at home, you go hard because you want to represent your home well. Now, we have a different understanding of what we do in the ring and how we do it. That's come from just the short time we've been here and we're extremely excited to see where our minds go as we continue. It's taking a dream team, taking their minds, and opening it up to you. It's up to you to implement those things and make them effective, but the information is there. Everyone is willing to help and wants the best for you."

Nash finished up by saying, "If you don't grow here as a performer [it's on you]. If you can't absorb this knowledge and level up, then you're not doing it."

MSK debuted in January 2021 as part of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic, they would win the tournament and then win the NXT Tag Team Titles.
