Triple H comments on picking up two-thirds of The Rascalz from IMPACT Wrestling
Earlier this week it was announced that Zachary Wentz and Dezmond Xavier, formerly of IMPACT Wrestling’s Rascalz, have joined the latest class at the WWE Performance Center and are now signed by the company. As of this writing, it is not clear what the future holds for the other member of the group, Trey Miguel.
Speaking with Ryan Satin of FOX Sports, Triple H, the mastermind of NXT, expressed how happy he is to have Zachary and Xavier join the fold, saying that he is very impressed that they were able to figure it out themselves and equated the move to when he passed up the money at WCW to join WWE in 1995.
“These are two kids who, I think, I’m very impressed with the things that they’ve done, but I don’t know that they really had a lot of helping hands to help them get to where they are. They just sort of figured it out on their own. They’ve figured out personality and charisma. They’ve figured out the in-ring style they have and made it their own. I’m a big fan of that. “
Triple H would also complement their work ethic and their humble nature.
“I’m excited to see what they can do now and when you meet them, they’re really great guys that are humble and hungry and looking for that opportunity. It’s a funny thing to me that when you’re at the level where they are or kind of sort of in that mix of that timeframe if you’re just going, ‘It’s just about the money,’ and there’s nothing wrong with that, but to me, the mindset shows a difference in how you think about the business. For me, in those moments, like when I left WCW to come to WWE, I had a guaranteed money deal that was for a lot more and a position and all those things. I left for the opportunity to do something bigger and become great. I gambled on myself.”
