Noam Dar was one of the handful of wrestlers who secured long-term positions in WWE following his appearance in the 2016 tournament. He was briefly in a romantic angle with Alicia Fox and spent many months chasing after the WWE Cruiserweight Championship before shifting focus to the NXT UK brand that he currently calls home.
Speaking to talkSPORT, Dar discuss consistently elevating his game and spoke about working alongside some of the greatest of all-time like WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels.
“For me personally, I’ve come on leaps and bounds just under that tutelage being able to work directly with Shawn, and being able to the mantra of NXT across the board is very much the talent are there to work. We’re highly invested in what we’re doing and we want to develop and to progress through NXT, WWE, and wrestling as an industry. When you have literally the best wrestler in the world working with talent who want to be the best, you’re going to create magic.”
He would further credit the D-Generation X founding fathers for their understanding of the British style of wrestling.
“Shawn and Triple H have so successfully assimilated their perspectives of wrestling through the lens of what we do, which is so difficult. It doesn’t matter if you’re the greatest in your industry, if you’re unable to find a point to relate and understand the differences in anything; not even just the wrestling industry, take music for example.
“If you’re not able to tune your eat to whatever the current sound is and be able to make small, little changes there and allow it to become even bigger than it is, then it doesn’t matter what your credentials are. But, Shawn Michaels and Triple H not only have those credentials above and beyond, but they also know how to coach us and that’s been so, so rewarding.”
