Kay Lee Ray has opened up about the impact of the legendary Meiko Satomura on the NXT UK locker room.
“Everything. She brings everything to NXT UK.”
The Scottish Daredevil added that the division is benefiting as everyone wants to pick up everything they can possibly learn from Satomura.
“I’ve seen the girls, they’re in awe of her. Like, everything she says, everything she does there, they’re picking up everything, they’re learning everything and this division’s going to get stronger. I’ve said, since I’ve been champion, I’ve seen hunger in their eyes and it’s scary because she’s feeding that. She’s making them better and our division is going to be SO strong, it is so strong already but it’s just growing and these girls are seeing the potential that that can happen here and they’re taken it and running with it and Meiko’s only fueling that fire here.”
Kay Lee Ray is also looking to the future, though, as the “forever champion” had high praise for both Xia Brookside and Amale.
“Oh, good question! I’ve got two in mind, I’m going to go with two just now and they’ve got a match coming up. So this could be a really good shout and the two of them are hungry, and I’m going to go with two girls here. The two of them are hungry, the two of them are fiery and they could take over this company and it’s Xia Brookside and Amale. They two right now, I see it. I see when they pass, I see it in training and I see that drive that they have and I think we could get some very big things from them two.”
