"That was kind of a unique deal you know, we were all so excited to get over there and travel and do shows in all new arenas and in front of new crowds but we did not quite know what to expect. We were just blown away by every single night on that U.K. tour and that first one was just mind-blowing and Blackpool was something completely different than any other night there.
"I think we had a match with Blake and Murphy that night and I don't think we touched for about eight or nine minutes of the match because the crowd would just not stop – something that we have never experienced before and even since then we still haven't. When we went back in June, the crowd were just as insane and just as awesome so for us to make the jump at this time to the SmackDown roster and get to go back again, we could not be happier."
The early main roster success of American Alpha:
"The year before that we were there at SummerSlam weekend in Brooklyn doing TV tapings for NXT and now fast forward a year later and we're on the SummerSlam show it is just like kind of mind-blowing you know. Everything seems like it is so far away all of the time and you look so forward and it is like 'man we have such a mountain to climb but you just chip away and all of a sudden you have made these giant steps in a year and it is really gratifying."
