Role As a Producer

Starting from the April 16 episode, Spears has taken on duties as a producer, shadowing Johnny Moss backstage at the Capitol Wrestling Center in Orlando, FL.

During a recent two-hour episode of NXT on USA, Spears was seen assisting with the women’s matches, showcasing his involvement in various aspects of production. Alongside former WWE Superstars turned producers like Matt Bloom, Oney Lorcan, and Wesley Blake, Spears is exploring this dual role.
