Briley Pierce Talks About Being In WWE NXT & His Comedy Background Helping

WWE NXT star Briley Pierce recently spoke with The Miami Herald about a number of topics. Pierce is the younger brother to WWE Superstar Dolph Ziggler. Here are some highlights:

How his comedy background has helped him: “I’m still working on the microphone stuff, too, [in WWE NXT], but the improv background helped a lot. I found the entertainment aspect way more natural than the physical part. It’s like no other sport. I was an amateur wrestler. I played rugby, but there’s nothing like professional wrestling. It’s totally different.”

Being a part of WWE’s NXT: “Being a part of NXT is almost indescribable. It is the hardest thing I’ve ever done anywhere, any capacity — no matter school, sports — anything. It’s nonstop, go, go, go, whether we’re training or at a show. When the bell rings, all the pain and sacrifice and injuries you pretend you don’t have, it goes away, and it is the best feeling…Just being in front of people, no matter how big or small the crowd is, feeling their energy, hearing them, whether they’re booing or cheering, it’s worth it for that…It’s really, really hard and really, really, really fun.”
