– This week’s WWE NXT episode saw “The Finest” Kona Reeves pick up a win over Raul Mendoza. This win comes after Reeves re-debuted earlier this month with a win over enhancement talent Patrick Scott. Below is backstage video of Reeves talking to Sarah Schreiber about the win.
When asked what he attributes to his recent success, Reeves says he stopped caring what everybody thought about him. He tried to be everybody’s friend but that got him nowhere. Reeves says he deserves the finer things in life and in order to get those, you have to win and winning is what he’s doing. Reeves says he is NXT’s “Finest” and if you don’t believe him, just watch.
