WWE Legends Michael Hayes, Ricky Steamboat, Arn Anderson Offer Thoughts on NXT

According to WWE.com, here are the relevant quotes:

“It comes down to three things; can you impress the WWE Pros in the final poll and win NXT and the pay-per-view title match?” hypothesized Michael Hayes. “Then on top of that, can you make the right choice when picking a champion to challenge? Then the third and final, hardest achievement or obstacle to overcome, can you beat that champion for his title at the pay-per-view?”

“Seize the moment, you know go for it because there is obviously going to be a lot of eyes watching this particular match, from CEOs on down,” Steamboat told WWE.com. “If you make that first big impression being a NXT Rookie, going out there and entertaining the people by challenging a champion, seize the moment.”

“The guy that wins that contest is going to get launched in one of two shows – SmackDown or Raw. It’s a free pass, but once he gets the free pass in the door he’s got to earn his keep. Then the shoe’s on the other foot. We’ll see what he’s got,” Anderson said.

“The only way to test your mettle is to actually be in there week to week, day to day,” he explained. “Getting in the door is not the big challenge. It’s being able to stay there. It’s what it’s going to be all about.”

Hayes also thought Otunga would win, while the other two legends declined to comment.
