X-Pac welcomes Juice Robinson to the show.

X-Pac vividly remembers speaking to Robinson when he was on his was out of NXT. Robinson says he felt stuck in NXT and he had to leave. He doesn’t blame that on WWE or on himself; sometimes things just aren’t working out. He was fired up to get out of there and prove his worth to the wrestling business.

X-Pac notes that he went through a similar thing in WWE many years ago. It hurt his feelings that Vince McMahon didn’t see him in the role that he thought he should be in and he had to go to WCW to prove himself. McMahon tried telling him that it was just business, but X-Pac noted that McMahon takes his business very seriously, and he does too.

Robinson points out that he saw a lot of mature, veteran performers signing with NXT and they all got placed higher than him on the card. He was 25 and realized that he had to venture out on his own in order to learn all the things that those veteran guys knew, and he had to do that quickly. WWE officials were reportedly impressed with Robinson’s decision.
