Fred Rosser, formerly known as Darren Young, sat for an interview with Chris Van Vliet. In that interview, Rosser spoke about working with WWE on a Nexus documentary.
This past year, he was associated in filming of the documentary. The Nexus stable was active from 2010-2011. During the filming process, WWE asked Fred to take his New Japan Pro Wrestling jacket off.
“The last time I wore this jacket was this past May with WWE. I was doing a Nexus uncut/uncensored documentary, they invited me and I said sure no problem. I came in with my New Japan jacket on, and before we started the producer said, ‘Do you mind if you take off the New Japan jacket?’ So I’m like, ‘So you are asking me to take it off? I hope not!’ I knew they were going to say it, so I said, ‘Look, I worked hard to get this jacket, and you guys have just inducted Jushin Liger into the Hall of Fame. This is supposed to be uncut and uncensored.’
“Not only did I say that, but I also said, ‘I just talked to John Laurinaitis because he reached out to me about maybe collaborating with New Japan and WWE. So let me just be me, this is supposed to be an uncut/uncensored Nexus documentary. Let me just be proud of this jacket. Then the producer said, ‘No problem, you sold me on it.’”
Fred Rosser ended up convincing the producer and continued the filming wearing that jacket. The Nexus documentary however, still hasn’t got its release. Rosser then disclosed a conversation with the Head of Talent Relations, John Laurentius. They talked about a possible NJPW/WWE collaboration.
Rosser also revealed the opponent he wants to face in the future. Rosser wants a face off with Daniel Bryan, with whom he did the original NXT. He recalls his training days with Daniel Bryan and further elaborates that his door is wide open for him.
