Mar 20, 2021 - by James Walsh

In an interview with Spencer Love of Love Wrestling. WWE Producer Tyson Kidd (TJ Wilson) commented on the state

“I just think, honestly, across all three brands, and I’m sure to you know it obviously extends further even than that, is just this wave of wanting to prove themselves. I did it as an individual. I was smaller in WWE and in wrestling, and I wanted to prove myself. I understand that as an individual, what’s really cool is they’re not only doing it as an individual, but they’re doing it as a collective group. I’ve never come across someone to phone it in or just kind of get by.

They, if you have an idea for them and they don’t – you know, if it works, it works, but if it’s not like the – if they think that there’s maybe even a little bit better idea, that they want to keep searching until we find something even a little bit better. Something may kind of work, but they want it even to – they always go out with the mindset of making it better, better, better and, of course, going out with the goal of making [the idea] the best and then come back and kind of dissect what maybe could be better. They take it all to heart.”

“I don’t know why, but in this last eight months of – I don’t know if it’s maybe just because my travels so easy – I just drive to Orlando and back, so I’m able to focus on things – I don’t know, I don’t understand. But, I’ve really seen it a lot the last eight months. Obviously, Sasha and Bayley have had a big spotlight on them during this whole time, [with] whole time being during this last six, eight months. So, of course them, too, but not just only them. Everybody else on that woman’s roster has really stepped up and it’s so cool to see. It’s cool to see that the ones in the lead are stepping up and the ones that you would maybe consider at the back are also stepping up.

So everybody’s stepping up, and it just keeps growing and growing and growing. When I think like, ‘okay,’ there’s been a few times where I’m like, ‘okay, I don’t know if I’m gonna be able to be a part of a match. Maybe he’s gonna be better than that.’ And then all sudden, a few years later, ‘Oh, nevermind. That one may have been a little bit better.’ It’s a matter of getting trapped in those moments. We’re kind of creating these moments, because like I said, we don’t have that audience there so we’re trying to do the best we can to almost mimic having that. They’re a big part. The fans are a giant part of what we do. We and we knew that prior to this, and we know that for sure now.”
