After being a fixture on the WWE NXT roster for quite a while, No Way Jose missed several months in the ring.
Jose recently sat down with WWE.com to discuss a plethora of topics. Jose provided reasoning as to why he's been away from NXT and what are his goals now that he is back.
“It’s like I never left. The NXT Universe always welcomes me with open arms. As soon as I walk down the entrance ramp, well, I guess dance, not walk; that energy, that rhythm, the emotion that hundreds or thousands of people give someone makes you experience an unexplainable emotion and fills you with so much joy," said Jose.
Prior to No Way Jose's return on the January 24th edition of NXT TV, he had not been seen since he was defeated by Lars Sullivan during the later part of 2017. Jose has returned with a new mindset and new goals.
"Well, before my last match with Cezar [Bononi], there was a man named Lars," Jose said. "A huge, powerful, anomaly of a man and what he did was show me that I needed to tone back on what brought me to the dance, which is the dance. I need to tone back on the hip swivels and I need to turn up the intensity in the ring.”
Jose also gave the WWE Universe a few reasons as to why they should look froward to seeing him back on NXT TV.
“I feel like the best ending to any story is when it has a cliffhanger. It makes you want to buy the next book in the series; it leaves you wanting something more. I can’t predict the future, but I can assure you that I’m about to take the WWE Universe on a ride they have to see to believe," said Jose.
