Darren Young parted ways with WWE long ago. Fans will always remember him for his time as a member of The Nexus stable and The Prime Time Players. He wants to return as a coach in NXT.
Now known as Fred Rosser, he has been doing great work in NJPW. He is the reigning NJPW STRONG Openweight Champion after defeating Tom Lawlor.
While speaking on the Comedy Store Podcast, Rosser was asked if he would ever return to WWE. Rosser said that he wants to return as a coach in NXT.
“I would love to, I would really love to. I remember when (John) Laurinaitis took over, he called me up and asked me — he hired me in 2009 — when he took over for Mark Carrano, he asked me how I was doing. ‘I’m doing well, I’m with New Japan.’ ‘Yeah, I used to work for All Japan.’ ‘I’m doing well, I’m doing my thing.’ I would love to, I would love to go back to NXT because that’s where I started. I was on the original season of NXT so going back and helping elevate talent. Time ain’t on our side, I’m 38. I want to push it until the wheels come off, but who knows. I remember seeing Norman Smiley during WrestleMania in Dallas and he said, ‘would you ever come back as a trainer?’ Yeah, I’d come back as a trainer, but I’m not ready for it. You’re not going to pull the plug on me, I still have more to do in wrestling. I would love to be a coach or anything like that
Rosser mentioned that he believes he has another ten years left in his in-ring career. We’ll have to see whether he’ll return to NXT somewhere down the line or not.
