Adam Pearce Praises Two Stars For Attending Extra NXT Training

Adam Pearce has lifted the lid on two current WWE Superstars who used to frequently attend open ring sessions in NXT despite their experience in the company.

Taking to social media current on-screen WWE official Adam Pearce took to social media to praise the two stars for attending when they didn’t have to. The two men in question were King Corbin and Chad Gable.

Pearce said:

FUN FACT: When I coached at the PC full time, I’d hold open ring sessions on Friday afternoons available to anyone that wanted to train. No experience limits/requirements. You know who came to most of them? @WWEGableand @BaronCorbinWWE. And I’ll never forget it.”

NXT runs a series of coaching classes dependent on experience and skill level in wrestling. Progression is made from one class to another. NXT competitors are coached by wrestling luminaries such as Shawn Michaels, Matt Bloom, Sara Amato, and Norman Smiley among others.

Both Gable and Corbin had stellar NXT careers before being called up to the WWE main roster. Gable found great success teaming with Jason Jordan as American Alpha. Together Gable and Jordan won the NXT Tag Team Titles in an all-time classic bout with The Revival at NXT TakeOver: Dallas in 2016.

Baron Corbin does not boast any gold from his time on the black and gold brand but he does have an impressive win/loss record to show. During Corbin’s run, he amassed an impressive undefeated streak leading to a match with the also undefeated Bull Dempsey. Corbin came out of their bout the victor leaving his undefeated streak intact. Corbin then made his main roster debut the same way as very few others have on ‘The Grandest Stage Of Them All’ at WrestleMania. He competed in and won the André The Giant Memorial Battle Royal in 2016.

Adam Pearce in his role of on-screen WWE official was not happy on Raw after assistant Sonya Deville went behind his back to reinstate Charlotte Flair.
