Trick Williams On The Odds Being Stacked Against Him At WWE NXT Heatwave

WWE NXT Champion Trick Williams recently spoke with The Toronto Sun on a number of topics including learning WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin’s catchphrase when he was three years old.

Williams said, “I was three years old and being a big fan of ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin, some of my first words apparently were opening a can of whoop ass. That got me in trouble and my parents have to turn off wrestling a little bit because I was learning some language that shouldn’t be said. That’s one of my first memories of wrestling.”

On his agent getting him a tryout for WWE NXT:

“He sent my information there (and) the next day, I got an email from WWE saying ‘Hey, are you interested in coming to a tryout?’ At that time, I just never had thought about (becoming a) WWE superstar. I didn’t know anybody who’d taken the indies route.”

On his four opponents at WWE NXT Heatwave and the odds being stacked against him:

“I can understand that hunger just as well as anybody, when you just want to prove yourself and make a name for yourself and you’re willing to put your body on the line to do so. can understand where Je’Von is, and I can understand that Ethan Page and Shawn Spears are coming home. The odds are stacked against me, but this is when I shine, this is when I show up the most, when it’s time for me to show who I really am. I’m the type of guy who’s not going to stop, who’s not going to quit until I get the job done.”
