In a recent interview with Fightful, WWE NXT star Shawn Spears discussed several topics, including his decision to return to the brand.

“Let’s be honest, let’s be clear as day, I’m not going to tell you guys anything you don’t already know. WWE is on fire, across the board, the numbers have never been better. I don’t know all the numbers, don’t get me wrong, I don’t know all the numbers, but what I do know of them is that we are smashing record after record, the attendance is going through the roof, the merchandise is off the charts, that wheel that we talked about is spinning faster and stronger than ever, so to be able to come back into that and be a spoke on that wheel again and be able to contribute in any way that I can is massive.

Once the opportunity came to come to NXT, I jumped all over it, there’s going to be people watching this right now that are saying, well why wouldn’t you want to go to RAW, why wouldn’t you want to go to SmackDown. NXT is also killing it, I have been here for a couple of weeks now, and I have seen talent that has blown me away. What I love about that is that it takes me back to when I first started training, or reminds me of my time here in the Performance Center, being in the spot that they’re in right now, knowing where they’re going to have the opportunity to possibly go, and the things that they’re going to go through.

I’m able to help guide in that sense too with my time here at the Performance Center, my responsibilities in WWE are a little more than just in the ring, and that is something that I don’t take lightly and that is something that I am massively interested in. At the end of the day, what it boiled down to, after a conversation with my wife is I get to wake up every morning and see my son and play and do whatever I need to do, and then I get to be home in my bed every night, sleeping beside my wife. In the middle of that, the in-between that, if I get to go hang out and learn from the Shawn Michael’s of our worlds, or the Matt Bloom’s, or I get to be a big kid in between those very important things, and I get to do that every day, tell me how I made the wrong call, tell me how I made a bad decision there man.”
