NXT Champion Trick Williams Reveals His Biggest Fear as a Performer

One Big Thing

NXT Champion Trick Williams has opened up about his biggest fear as a performer in WWE, revealing that he dreads not reaching his full potential in his career.

Key Points

  • Williams has emerged as a top babyface in NXT in 2024, defeating Carmelo Hayes twice and capturing the NXT Championship from Ilja Dragunov.
  • He credits his success to stepping up and asking for more opportunities from NXT head Shawn Michaels.
  • Williams’ motivation stems from wanting to succeed or fail on his own merits rather than waiting for opportunities to come his way.

Williams on His Biggest Fear

In an appearance on “Busted Open Radio,” Williams stated, “My biggest fear is not being able to reach my potential. If I sat in the back and didn’t say a word, didn’t open my mouth the whole time, and I didn’t get to where I wanted to by the end of my career, I couldn’t live with myself. So I’mma find out one way or another. I’m going to get out there, and I’ll fail before I never get the opportunity.”

Why It Matters

Williams’ journey to the top of NXT serves as an inspiration for young talents in the wrestling industry. His proactive approach to seeking opportunities and willingness to take risks has paid off, showcasing the importance of self-advocacy and determination in achieving success.

What’s Next

Williams is set to defend his NXT Championship against the newly-signed Ethan Page at NXT Battleground. Page, a former AEW star, made his debut on NXT last week by attacking Williams and has been granted a guaranteed title shot as part of his contract.
