In a recent interview with Denise Salcedo, WWE NXT superstar Joe Gacy discussed several topics, including his WWE NXT character, changing up his look since joining the company and more.

“I love it, I wouldn’t trade it for anything. Whether you want to cheer me or boo me, I love every moment of it, just being able to be here and doing what I’m doing is crazy. Like I said, the last two years have been crazy, but a good kind of crazy, so to be able to get any kind of reaction out of the WWE Universe has been great for me, whether it’s a good or bad kind of reaction, I love every minute of it.

When I first came to NXT, or when I first ws signed with WWE, I had a very different look, I had longer hair, longer beard, I wore trunks, boots and had a vest, but I guess when it came down to it, it was very similar to everyone else, everyone had long hair and the beard. I mean granted, I still have my beard, but I think it was time to be different. I think coming up before my time here in WWE, I went about things one way, and then, coming here, seeing how things were and eventually knowing NXT 2.0 was coming, I think it was time to be different. What better way to be different than to completely change the way I look, so I guess that’s kind of what went into that.”
