NXT title or move up to the WWE."
Jack grew up a fan in the Attitude Era and already has an idea for his character.
"I wouldn't mind playing the heel, which is the bad guy," Jack says. "When you first start out you are always kind of the heel and

well I can act."
Wrestling legend Gerry Brisco recruited Jack.
