Speaking with Jim Varsallone of the Miami Herald, Wilson and Prince shared their thoughts on hosting the special event and brought up The Miz, the host of WWE WrestleMania 39.Wilson noted that the fact that the three of them were hosting the premium live events during WrestleMania weekend was written in the stars.

Kit Wilson: It’s an honor.

Elton Prince: You know what else I’d say it is? Awesome.

KW: Look at that. You could argue that the three biggest superstars, maybe.

EP: The most must-see.

KW: The three most must-see superstars in WWE are hosting WrestleMania and Stand & Deliver. It’s almost written in the stars. It just makes sense. It is a honor. I’m very excited. As everyone who’s gonna be watching this knows, Stand & Deliver is our WrestleMania. It’s the biggest show of the year. It’s where every story and everything, all the excitement leads to this one day. So to be the one team, almost in charge essentially, there’s a little bit of power there, which is nice. To be those two people, it’s a good day. It’s an honor

Later in the interview, Prince described how their role as the host of NXT Stand & Deliver is a better fit than Meryl Streep in "Sophie's Choice". He then seemingly got emotional as he called the difficulty of the choice that Sophie had to make. Wilson went on to explain that they have learned from some great hosts, including

EP: I will say, I think Pretty Deadly hosting Stand & Deliver is a better fit than Meryl Streep in 'Sophie’s Choice'. I will say that. It’s a better fit. She just couldn’t live with herself. [Gets emotional] She had to make a choice. [Takes a second to collect himself]. Please continue, sorry.

KW: We’ve learned from the greats. We’ve watched, we’ve studied. Ricky Gervais, an Englishman, he’s done well. There’s a duo out there still pondside called Ant & Dec, some heroes of ours. We’re following their footsteps. The English know, the Americans, not so much. That’s okay.

EP: What do the Americans know, though? [Laughs] Excuse me. Sometimes, these things, they just slip out. I’m sorry.

KW: It’s a big job. We’re going to step up and smash it out of the park. We’ve got our outfit ready. We got our microphone ready. We’re gonna have our hair and makeup ready. It’s gonna be a spectacle just like these weekends always are, and just like we always are, spectacular.
