NXT UK's Mark Andrews opened up to Sportskeeda

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.

Andrews opened up about the importance of mental health awareness and feeling comfortable in your own skin.

On Beautiful Life:

I like to think it's an album which a lot of people can relate to - because everyone has had times where they don't feel comfortable in their own skin, or at least we have. Other people have struggled with that to a way bigger scale and it's a regular theme in their lives. The main theme of the album is not feeling comfortable in your own skin and overcoming that.

On the importance of Heads Above The Waves - a mental health charity run by Junior drummer Si Martin.

With Heads Above The Waves, it's crazy even just having a clothing brand, a company, or even a little shop in Cardiff that you can go to and see the messages that it's okay not to be okay, that self love is important.

Just that alone helps people. It's the smallest little thing but people need to be reminded.

It was great writing this album about that exact topic because Si is very knowledgeable on it and it's something that everyone in the world can relate to. If they can't, then maybe they should think about it a bit more and try to relate because it applies to every single person.

As a charitable organization, Heads Above The Waves is a very important one and something we support massively as a band. They do really good things.
