Mark Andrews opens up on Triple H choosing Junior as the theme for WWE NXT UK TakeOver: Cardiff (Exclusive)
On episode two of Dropkick DiSKussions, which you can catch exclusively via Sportskeeda Wrestling's YouTube and social media channels, we spoke with WWE Superstar Mark Andrews while the NXT UK man was touring with his band Junior, promoting their new album Beautiful Life.
The Welshman opened up about getting to be a part of NXT UK TakeOver: Cardiff - both as a wrestler but also as a musician with band Junior!
Two thirds of us are from Wales and Si lives in Cardiff, and actually when we saw Triple H's tweet, it was just after we got off stage after the Cardiff show, so we'd just had this amazing, like, "Yeah! That was amazing! Oh, Triple H has tweeted about our song!"
It was so cool. I'll be honest, I'm not going to lie - we did specifically write that song trying to appeal more towards the wrestling world. Our music has always been... Not all over the place but our inspirations comes from a varied amount of places in music, and this one we thought to ourselves, "What the kind of song you would hear on a wrestling video game or a Tony Hawk's video game? Or a wrestling pay-per-view?"
We specifically wrote it hoping that something like this would happen and when it did, we're like, "Ah, okay, sweet! We did it well enough for it to be used!"
I'm really excited for it to be used. It is the first ever TakeOver in Wales, first ever televised WWE event in Wales, so it'll be very sentimental to me in general. Now the fact that the band gets to be involved in it as well is awesome - and seeing Triple H tweet about it was cool.
We'll get him to do guest vocals next time.
