On making history at NXT UK Takeover: Blackpool:

Zack Gibson:

“It’s hard to put into words. Our whole journey was about getting to WWE and to be the best we can be when we get there. So, to get to TakeOver: Blackpool – which two minutes down the road from James’ house – and put our names in the history books as the first-ever tag team champions… I remember coming backstage and you’ve got Triple H and Shawn Michaels waiting for you, telling you it was incredible, you’ve stolen the show – it was incredible. And they sent title belts home to our families, just incredible. Still, up to this point, one of the best moments of my life. Hopefully, tomorrow is going to top it – we’ve got a lot of crazy stuff lined up so it’s definitely one not to miss.”

On the roster being hungry to perform at NXT UK Takeover: Cardiff:

James Drake:

“Yeah, definitely. With the generation of what we are now, we all take a lot of pride in our work. So basically, over the last 10 years we’ve seen a boom in British wrestling and that’s mainly because of the generation you see in NXT UK now. We’ve all evolved and put a lot of effort and time into, hopefully, one day having this opportunity. It’s hard to put into words, but all I can say is everyone is going out there to put on the best show, everyone is going out there to steal the show, make a bigger name for themselves, make NXT UK bigger than it already it has become. Cardiff is just another cornerstone.”

Where Takeover should go next:

Zack Gibson:

“Anfield! Capital of culture, the best city in the world and I’m not just saying that because I’m from there. I’ve seen plenty of the world and I’ve compared it and nothing compares to Liverpool. TakeOver Liverpool would be the dream but there is a ton of other cities… they all want TakeOver. All of the talents would love TakeOver in their town. I say Liverpool and I would be right, but it’s not down to me. It’s down to Johnny Saint.

“Jordan Devlin wants to see TakeOver go over to Ireland, Dave Mastiff wants to see it go to the Black Country, but one thing that is going to put them all off is tuning in on Saturday and watching two Welsh lads in Flash Morgan Webster and Mark Andrews, two lads who got their wish in Cardiff and they got embarrassed in front of all of their family and friends. Hopefully, the rest of the roster will realise having a TakeOver in their own back garden is a bad idea while James Drake and I are on the roster.”
