He doesn't actually appear on the episode of NXT that originally aired on October 30th, 2014, but he's here to talk about it with us, and we couldn't be happier! And by "he," we mean former NXT wrestler AJ Ryder, aka Troy McClain! AJ joins us for the entire show, breaking down Sami Zayn's latest redemption roadblocks, Hideo Itami's inexplicable decision making, and Emma's temporary return to the show. He also discusses his journey into (and out of) pro wrestling, pulls back the curtain on his experiences as a member of the 2014 NXT roster, and shares a myriad of stories from his time in the ring. It's truly a very special episode, and we're thrilled to be able to share it with you.
