Sean ‘X-Pac’ Waltman On Why He Is A Fan of Matt Riddle

Everyone knows I am biased towards that guy anyways, but still, it’s for a reason. Not just because he’s a good guy. His vision for himself, and how he stuck to it and how he’s stayed true to it and even there. Going there involves assimilating and it’s a fine line to walk of how much to assimilate; and there are somethings about his style that are unorthodox and when maybe somebody might try to get him to adjust it’s maybe not a good idea and I think he’s done a great job of walking that line.

Sean ‘X-Pac’ Waltman Talks About Why He Is A Fan of the War Raiders

Anytime the War Raiders are involved in anything it’s always great. Always. I am gonna go back to last War Games, I remember Hanson, to me, he’s the one that brought it the most. Even though there were some moments in there with Ricochet off the top of the cage, and all that. Hanson stood out to me even amongst all that. I was just continuously ‘oohed’ and ‘aahed’ and he got a pop out of me. The placement of things and where things were done. And War Raiders are in the Shawn Michaels advanced {class}, learning all the secrets, trade secret stuff. And it shows. Since I spent a week down there and I was part of that last set of tapings, that’s why I wanted to do this show today about NXT because I feel a little bit of an extra bond with them now.
