During an interview with Rolling Stone, Tyler Breeze revealed some details about the origin of his character. He stated that he knew his real life persona was not something that would be marketing, so he needed a new gimmick. Breeze stated that he turned to Xavier Woods and gave him credit for creating his model persona. Breeze also mentioned that he considered a snowboarder character as well.

Since his gimmick works so well in NXT, WWE has decided that Tyler Breeze will be using the same gimmick, theme song and entrance routine when he makes the move from the developmental program to the main roster. Management has already ordered his promotion to go through, so he will be doing double duty on some weeks until the end of the year. Rumors strongly persist that he will be paired with Summer Rae.
