After completing a feud with Adam Cole at NXT TakeOver: Stand and Deliver, Kyle O’Reilly showed off his new “cool” gimmick.
This is something that he talked about during an appearance on WWE’s The Bump this week.
“It’s been awesome. It’s kind of going back into a mentality I had many years ago when I was on my own, as well. It’s kind of fun to be myself again,” Kyle O’Reilly stated excitedly. “It really means a lot to have these creative liberties and be a weird and quirky dude again.”
“I think this Kyle O’Reilly is still, in a sense, finding himself,” O’Reilly noted when comparing his old gimmick to his current one. “The Undisputed Era, we were a band of brothers or four guys who pushed each other and motivated each other and had each other’s backs.
“And now, I don’t necessarily have anyone that I can rely on to watch my back. I think it’s kind of cool to branch out and sort of, not reinvent the wheel, but take a step back and look at what I’m doing objectively and think what’s going to work. Let’s just throw things at the wall and see what comes out of it. I’m very excited that this is an opportunity to just keep growing.”
