WWE has booked a singles match between Wes Lee and Ilja Dragunov for tonight’s episode of NXT, where the winner will earn the right to challenge NXT Champion Carmelo Hayes for the title at the No Mercy pay-per-view event on September 30th.
On Tuesday, Ilja joined Busted Open Radio, where he discussed the possibility of being called up to the main roster. He said,
“That’s a good question and I get these questions often in interviews and this is always about having a specific goal (Dragunov said about a main roster call-up). I have no opinion on this. So, on the other side, I would say if I would stay in NXT for a while, it’s nothing that makes me unhappy because I’m not in a rush. I’ve entirely enjoyed the journey, I entirely enjoy not always to know everything and just see everything in front of me, being surprised, being challenged. The surprise of life in all this journey is the most precious thing to me, because if I could know everything, it would just be like goal after goal after goal. That’s not what art is all about…”
