JD McDonagh On Being Drafted To RAW, Cody Rhodes Aims For World Heavyweight Title



In an interview with WWE Digital following last night’s episode of NXT, JD McDonagh discussed his main roster call-up and getting drafted to Monday Night RAW.

McDonagh defeated Dragon Lee in his final NXT match last night. He said,

“That’s a wrap. It’s funny, it’s like a dam breaking a suppose. You’re pushing and you’re pushing and you’re pushing, and you feel something building for your whole life. I’ve been doing this 21 years now, and 15 or 16, I felt like I was spinning my wheels, I might never make it. But all of a sudden, things happen, it all just clicks, you know? Coming here to NXT, getting to be in the ring every single week with the best young wrestlers in the world, bar none, it helped unlock something in me. It helped me finally get to the next level. I can’t wait. I can not wait for the next chapter. It feels I’ve been walking forever, and I’ve reached the mountain top. I’ve got to keep on pushing the goalposts back. I’m gonna ride this thing til the wheels fall off. I absolutely love this. I love NXT. I loved my time here, love testing myself, and now the next step, Monday Night Raw, Monday Night McDonagh.”

In a recent interview with Comic Book Nation, Cody Rhodes declared that his goal in WWE hasn’t changed and threw his name into the mix for the recently-reinstated WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Cody said,

“Triple H, being the coach here and calling the shots, and making it clear that the World Heavyweight Championship, from a fan of physical belts and all the nods and things that were done; the lions, pieces of old titles put on this hunting piece of metal that Triple H unveiled, as a fan of classic titles, it’s definitely something that piqued my interest. That’s the title that represents Raw. That’s the title that main events Raw. That’s the title that is the franchise title for the USA Network. I can’t say that I don’t want it. I can’t say that’s not something that, if you look and revise your goals and say, ‘this is the route we have to go,’ especially with me being drafted to Raw, that might be more of a case of a different story. The goal is still the same for me, but by no means am I, or should anyone, be looking down on the new World Championship. It’s one of those things where in time, people will hopefully come to love and revere. It’s being positioned as the lead title for the brand itself and it will take a lead individual to handle it. Raw has a stacked roster. I definitely want to throw myself in the mix. I try not to get into the discussion because of how WrestleMania 39 ends, a lot of people wonder how I would look at this. I try not to get into a discussion on it because, in my mind, the goal hasn’t changed, but other things are going to come up. You’re going to confront new adversity and for me, that’s Brock Lesnar more than anything. I can’t even think about that beautiful belt until I’m able to do something that very few people are able to do; get in the ring with The Beast and not just survive, but win.”
