Saxon Huxley looks back on his time in NXT UK.
The Englishman spoke with SO CATCH by Hal 2 about his time on the brand, which included his thoughts on who he thinks were the standouts, like Gunther, JD McDonagh, Ilja Dragunov, and more. Highlights can be found below.
Who he thought the standout was from NXT UK:
There were a bunch of guys, unfortunately, I only got to wrestle certain people one time. Someone like GUNTHER, I think he’s one of the best wrestlers in the world. I wrestled him one time on TV, and I wish we could have done it more. He’s someone I look up to. Tyler Bate, I think, is one of the best wrestlers in the world. I got to do a little bit with him and tag matches, but we never really got to do it one-on-one. Ilja Dragunov , fantastic. Jordan Devlin (JD McDonagh), incredible. He’s just brilliant. He can do things that people can’t do. I’m glad he’s getting the platform now to show everyone what he’s going to do.
What he learned during his time in NXT UK:
There’s so many talented guys on that roster that I really enjoyed wrestling. Axiom, he was A-Kid. Unbelievable wrestler. He’s like a chess player in the ring. I have nothing but fond memories, fond times, and a fond outlook to move forward with and use what I learned there. I think I became a better performer, a better wrestler. In some ways, a better person through just being like five and a half years in that company and being around that group, that crew. That’s when I look back fondly on the things I learned and the experiences I had, you can’t replace stuff like that. It’s just really fantastic.
