Ring Rust Radio recently interviewed Jack Gallagher. Here are the highlights:

Gallagher on Vince McMahon being approachable: “The relationship with Vince McMahon, he is surprisingly approachable. Growing up watching WWE or WWF as I did growing up, you think of Vince McMahon as this larger-than-life scary character. He is a larger-than-life character, but he is very welcoming, charming, he sits down and if he has time in his busy schedule, which is rare, but if he has time in his schedule, he has time for anyone.”

Thoughts on elevating the cruiserweight division: “For me, it’s not escaping the division, it’s about elevating it. NXT went from a developmental system which was considered a step-down, to a completely separate brand unto itself where people are stars and they sell out stadiums and they tour by themselves,” Gallagher said. “In my head I think, if we all work hard, then 205 Live becomes good, the division becomes good, the division raises, and then there are more opportunities and then there are more interesting things for everyone as well.”

Working with Brian Kendrick: “It’s been really wonderful for me because I get to pick his brain, and he obviously has the experience on me. It occurred to me that when Brian first started in WWE, his mentor was William Regal, and he sort of has a reverse situation now where he’s mentoring a new little William Regal in WWE. I enjoy the sort of mirrored aspect of that.”
