The Scottish Sun recently interviewed NXT UK Superstar Kenny Williams. Below are some highlights.

Williams on working with idols: “I’ve got to stay professional but my inner child is going mental and no part of me will ever stop thinking that it’s cool. I grew up idolizing guys like Shawn Michaels and Triple H and now I am getting advice from them. When I wrestled Rey Mysterio, neither of us were with WWE and now we both are and I think that’s amazing.”

Williams on wanting to become a champion in WWE: “My goal is to climb up the ladder and hopefully one day be champion in WWE.”

Williams on opting out of lawyering to become a wrestler: “I went to Edinburgh University to be a lawyer. It was really only because I got good grades at school and I thought I’d give it a try. I was beginning to train as a wrestler at that point and my heart wasn’t in law. I left after six weeks. I’ve worked in bars too and as a waiter. I also worked for three years with my dad who is a roller shutter engineer. But all those jobs were just to support me becoming a wrestler.”
