The Scottish Sun recently interviewed NXT UK Superstar Kenny Williams. Below are some highlights.

Williams on working with idols: Ive got to stay professional but my inner child is going mental and no part of me will ever stop thinking that its cool. I grew up idolizing guys like Shawn Michaels and Triple H and now I am getting advice from them. When I wrestled Rey Mysterio, neither of us were with WWE and now we both are and I think thats amazing.

Williams on wanting to become a champion in WWE: My goal is to climb up the ladder and hopefully one day be champion in WWE.

Williams on opting out of lawyering to become a wrestler: I went to Edinburgh University to be a lawyer. It was really only because I got good grades at school and I thought Id give it a try. I was beginning to train as a wrestler at that point and my heart wasnt in law. I left after six weeks. Ive worked in bars too and as a waiter. I also worked for three years with my dad who is a roller shutter engineer. But all those jobs were just to support me becoming a wrestler.
