NXT Superstar Odyssey Jones is excited about his return and believes that there is light at the end of the tunnel, which is out of his reach at the moment, but he will take one single step at the moment. Jones rose to fame during the tail-end of NXT’s fabled black-and-golden era while competing in the NXT Breakout Tournament. He went on to the final but lost to the Carmelo Hayes at the event.
Speaking to the Wrestling The Rap Game podcast, Jones spoke at length about his injury and his highly-anticipated comeback. He took full responsibility for his injury and stated that “I went for an up and over and went up, but didn’t go over. Went up and straight down. I was being.. I could have worked smarter. I didn’t work smart enough. That’s my learning curve. God willing, if I get another opportunity to get back out there and do it again, I know for a fact that I’ll do it better.”

The NXT superstar, who is in recovery mode at the moment, is not stressing about his comeback and states that he is just focusing on one thing at a time.
“I’m excited about the return, but I try not to think about it too much. It’s the light at the end of the tunnel and a little bit out of reach. I’d rather be where my a** is and focus on things. I’m already walking, braced up, no crutch. Six weeks post-op, seven weeks from the injury,” he said.
Jones made his first television appearance in 2021 but has been signed with the company since 2019. Before his training with WWE, Jones was a college athlete and played football as an offensive guard for the Syracuse University team, Syracuse Orange.
Since joining the NXT ranks, The O Show has wrestled the likes of LA Knight, Dexter Lumis, Grayson Waller, and Diamond Mine. Hopefully, he’ll have many more matches with the veteran and new stars of the brand upon his return.
