Trent Seven Could See Himself Being 'The Paul Heyman Of NXT UK' Once In-Ring Career Is Over

Trent Seven is one-half of the NXT UK Tag Team Champions, but he's already planning for his future.

Seven, 40, might be closer to the end of his career than he is the beginning and whenever his in-ring career might come to an end, he hopes to make an impact in a different way on television.

"It’s always good to have things to fall back on, or things that give your persona or character different assets to utilize. Say in eight or nine years where I’m like, 'These knees are gone, I’m gonna give it up,' do I see myself as the UK’s Paul Heyman? Maybe! Does there need to be a British representative that has that managerial feel, that boss-like feel? That’s something I take very seriously as a further part of my career. You’ve just gotta push yourself and get out of your comfort zone," Seven told Alistair McGeorge of Metro.

Seven doesn't want to hang up the boots just yet, saying, "Obviously I’m a little bit older than pretty much all of the roster – not that I’m in the twilight of my career, I feel fantastic to be brutally honest! I’m not saying that I can go forever, but I’m pretty sure I’ve got another six or seven years left in me."

Seven & Tyler Bate won the NXT UK Tag Team Championships on the December 9 episode of NXT UK, defeating Pretty Deadly (Lewis Howley & Sam Stoker).
