Noam Dar Says He Might Not Be In WWE If He Didn't Move To NXT UK, Reflects On Formation Of Meta-Four

NXT UK was an important part of Noam Dar's journey.

Noam Dar had a prominent run in WWE's cruiserweight division on Raw and 205 Live before his career reached new heights when he moved to NXT UK. He later won the Heritage Cup and eventually moved to NXT stateside after the end of NXT UK. Since then, he has been a featured member of the roster, and he formed Meta-Four with Oro Mensah, Lash Legend, and Jakara Jackson.

Speaking with Kenny McIntosh of Inside The Ropes, Noam Dar reflected on his move to NXT UK and the impact that it had on his career.

“Well, firstly transferring to NXT UK was my attempt and risk to take, to put myself in an environment, in a scenario where I could show what I believed I was, what I believed the character was and what I believed I could do with any scenario and circumstance. To have that space in NXT UK, to have the freedom to be myself, to develop that and to be more actualized is what feels true to me. That was really important for me to have that moment within WWE and try it my way without any attachment to any possible outcome. For me it was more just I’ve spent x amount of years trying to kind of play by everyone else’s rules, try and do what I think is right, just walking on eggshells. So I knew as a creative person and beyond any commercial success, I just knew I needed to have a moment in my career where I bet on myself or try to do things my way and if it doesn’t work and then at least I would have that resolution. Luckily, obviously, it’s paying off and it was instrumental to where I am right now. I might not even be in WWE if I didn’t make that move and make that change," Dar said.

Dar continued by highlighting his run in NXT and the formation of Meta-Four. He reflected on how the group came together and noted that he has great relationships with each of the members. Dar stated that they all have a similar mindset.

"Not only is it paying off now, I’m now on a platform in which I can build that further. Meta-Four came around firstly as something different and not just what most people would just expect of a group, how a group gets brought together, or the dynamic of a group. I have great personal relationships with all of them. Me and [Oro] Mensah go back to NXT UK, Lash Legend came over to NXT UK and we hit it off right away. Jakara Jackson has always been close friends with Lash and that community between us was very immediate, which is important. It’s also not essential. A lot of times people in groups or factions or stables, whatever you want to call them, they don’t always necessarily have the best personal dynamic not in the sense that there’s friction, but they’re just professionally focused. But for us, it was important to make sure that everything feels right to us from the ground up and even know everything feels right to us, and we all feel represented in the right way. So we’ll have that same feeling that I’m talking about, have the same feeling of like okay, I’m betting on myself, I’m trying to do it my way. With the steps I’m taking it feels like the steps that I intuitively want to take, then those steps can either be developed here, developed there, taken this way, taken that way, and just let it be more genuine," Dar said.

Noam Dar went on to say that all four members of Meta-Four believe that they will be superstars, and they believe that they can start demanding the opportunities they want, rather than chasing them.

"The four of us believe that we’ll be superstars in WWE, the four of us believe that whilst we could wait for certain opportunities, we can just collect ourselves together and start demanding those opportunities, demanding those spots and putting ourselves in those scenarios maybe before we’ve been given them," Dar said.
