Trent Seven: My Goal Is To Be On The Card Of Forbidden Door 2

Trent Seven has big goals this summer.

Seven was part of NXT UK from 2016 until his release from the company in 2022 when the brand went on a hiatus for NXT Europe which was planned for a launch in 2023.

He would go on to work for OTT Wrestling after his release from WWE. Seven would show up on AEW TV when he notably challenged Orange Cassidy for the AEW International Championship on the December 9, 2022 edition of AEW Rampage.

Speaking on Touch Grass Wrestling, Seven looked back on his appearances on AEW TV.

“I had a couple of lovely matches there. Orange Cassidy, it was a weird one, if was very very quick. It happened almost overnight, the whole thing,” he said.

When asked how the booking came about, Trent replied, “Obviously, throughout my career, I’m me. I try and be a nice man. I try and talk to people and listen to them as much as I can. I love finding out about people and listening to their stories. I’ve been lucky to have met some wonderful people like Adam Cole. I have my own company, an Indie fed in the UK as well. Pretty much the whole roster has either lived in my house or I’ve wrestled them or I’ve bought a flight. It just pays back. When I walked into that locker room, it was 40 people who have lived in my house. I was (quite emotional). Not for me, but for them. Watching all these people that we [struggled] on the Indies and they are on good contracts, they’re making money. The AEW set up, at that point, was one day a week. That’s genius.”

Seven would go on to discuss crossover shows with major promotions and how it has become more commonplace with All Elite Wrestling being around.

“Forbidden Door is definitely a goal show to get on. The beautiful part of AEW is, you can dip in and out. Everyone, of course, common sense prevails, we all want a nice little contract. You don’t have to stress about everything, a little injury here, a little injury there, they all add up. It’s very nice to have the money come in every week, of course.”

Trent had also wrestled on the December 16, 2022, episode of AEW Rampage when he teamed with The Butcher, The Blade, & Kip Sabian against Best Friends (Chuck Taylor & Trent Beretta), Dustin Rhodes & Orange Cassidy.
