Je’Von Evans: I Want To Become The Youngest NXT Champion Ever

WWE NXT star Je’Von Evans wants to make history.

Evans signed with WWE in the fall of 2023 when he was only 19 years old, though he had been training since he was 13. “The Young OG” has quickly risen up the ranks, and he will challenge for the NXT Championship in a four-way match at NXT Heatwave.

Speaking with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, Je’Von Evans reflected on his road to WWE He recalled grinding on the independent scene after he graduated high school.

“Once I graduated, I started going crazy on the indies,” Je’Von Evans said. “All I wanted to get paid was a little money for food. I was grinding, and it paid off.”

Evans then said that WWE talent scout Gabe Sapolsky was in attendance at GCW For The Culture 2023, and he was so impressed that he spoke with Evans after the match. They exchanged information, and Evans signed with WWE a few months later.

Heading into NXT Heatwave, Evans has his sights set on the gold, and he wants to capitalize on the opportunity.

“I want to become the youngest NXT champion ever, so I’ve got to turn it up,” said Evans. “It’s time to go crazy and show something you’ve never seen before.”

WrestleZone will have coverage of NXT Heatwave as it airs on July 7.
