The WWE will soon raid NXT of some of its top stars during the brand extension and they need to have new faces to carry the brand further. According to the latest WWE rumors, independent wrestlers Tommy End and Noam Dar are among four new signings the company has made.
The latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter (h/t Cageside Seats) reports that four stars from the independent circuit will join NXT this fall. Tommy End, Noam Dar, Moose and Big Damo are just going to finish up some wrestling dates and obligations before undergoing physicals for the WWE.
But who are these four wrestlers? First, let’s take a look at Tommy End. He is a Dutchman that made his name wrestling in independent promotions across Europe. He has also worked in the United States, wrestling for promotions such as Combat Zone Wrestling, Evolve, and Pro Wrestling Guerilla.
Up next is Noam Dar, who is one of the 32 participants of the WWE Cruiserweight Classic that will start next month. He’s only 22 years old but he has wrestled across the world, most notably in TNA Wrestling and UK promotions such as PROGRESS Wrestling and Insane Championship Wrestling.
On the other hand, Moose has been rumored to be going to NXT after his contract with Ring of Honor expires this month. He’s a former NFL player who only started wrestling in 2012. Nonetheless, he’s a 6-foot-5, 295-lb man that Vince McMahon loves.
Lastly, Big Damo is an Irish wrestler that reportedly had a tryout with the WWE during the European tour. He’s a big wrestler standing at 6-foot-4 and weighs around 300 pounds. It is expected that the WWE will sign more independent wrestlers as the NXT is quickly becoming a brand of its own.
According to WWE.com, the company has also signed Bin Wang to a contract and he will soon start training at the Performance Center in Orlando. Wang is the first-ever China native to sign a developmental deal with the WWE. He previously worked with WWE Hall of Famer Antonio Inoki’s Inoki Genome Federation.
