Tyler Breeze recently appeared onThe Chris Van Vliet show and discussed several topics, from meeting Edge at his WWE tryout to asking to go back to NXT. Here are some highlights:

On meeting Edge at his WWE tryout:

Breeze: “This is also why I hold Edge super high. He ended up coming to the tryout. He came down, and I was like, ‘Oh my god,’ you know, I’ve never met anybody. He was on TV at that point, like 2020. So we had some guests and everything else, and he comes in and I go like, ‘Oh, man, this is cool.’ And I know him and Lance [Storm] are friends, so I go up to him, and I go, ‘Hey man,’ you know, ‘How’s it going,’ whatever, ‘I train with Lance,’ and he goes, ‘Oh, Lance told me about your stuff.’ I said, ‘Did you watch my match?’ and he goes, ‘No but I went back and I watched it,’ and he goes, ‘Really good,’ he gave me all this critique and feedback. And I go, you know what man, he didn’t have to do any of this, he didn’t have to talk to me. I don’t know him, I’ve never met him. But he went out of his way to go back, rewind the tape, watch my match, give me critique, give me feedback, and I went, that’s Canadian, man.”

On asking to go back to NXT:

Breeze: “I wasn’t in a very good place in May, and that’s just when it came to a head, and when I kind of dropped a bomb on everything, where I just said, I gotta change my life because I am not happy, you know what I mean, and nobody can change it but you kind of thing. So I said, alright, I gotta change my job, I gotta change my life, I gotta change everything that’s going on. It didn’t even start as a ‘Hey, send me back to NXT, I’m not happy,’ whatever. It wasn’t that at all. It was like, ‘Look, I haven’t been doing anything. I’m not enjoying what I’m doing.’ At that point, [Fandango] had no sign of coming back any time soon, and I just said like, ‘If you don’t need me, I can go do something else and either, one, prove that you do need me or that you want me, or I’ll go find something else to do because I’m just not enjoying what I’m doing.’ And I was specifically told, like, ‘We’d rather put you in NXT than let you go.’ And I said, ‘Okay, cool.’ I said, ‘That’s great,’ because I don’t want to leave. It’s obviously WWE, I’ve been here ten years, I love it.’
