In a recent interview with Stephanie Chase of Digital Spy, WWE NXT Tag Team Champions MSK (Nash Carter & Wes Lee) opened up on their decision to leave IMPACT Wrestling and join WWE NXT.

Speaking about the decision Nash Carter stated, “It just seemed right that we needed to evolve into the next aspect of our careers. If you watch some of the best documentaries on some of the best wrestlers, they know when it’s time to evolve and let go and create anew in order to stay fresh. We just knew that we were in a cocoon and we needed to spread our wings and be beautiful butterflies.”

Wes Lee added to that stating, “Just like when a caterpillar turns into a butterfly, it never really loses who it was, it just alters how it presents itself and that’s essentially all we did. We’re still the exact same guys, it doesn’t matter what name we do it under, but right now, MSK is who we are and that’s who we’re going to be for a long time.”

Carter said that leaving IMPACT Wrestling for WWE was a no-brainer stating, “When this opportunity came, it was a no-brainer, I’ve always wanted to be a WWE superstar”. Lee followed that up stating, “With the progression of our careers, this was the next stage and it was just right there in front of us and we just had to take the opportunity. It’s bred some amazing, amazing things since we made that choice. The pandemic definitely gave us time to re-evaluate a lot of things and we did a lot of talking, a whole lot of talking on what it is that we wanted to do and how we wanted to do it and this just worked out perfectly.”
