NXT star Adrian Neville recently talked to the Sun of the UK. Below are some highlights; 

0n his NXT Takeover: R Evolution match with Sami Zayn: “At the end of the match, when it was all said and done, I did tear up and was a little overwhelmed by the emotion. It was electric at Full Sail [University]. It was certainly – if not our best – definitely up there as one of the best performances we’ve ever had together.”

Pat Patterson being at the event: “Pat wasn’t scheduled to come out at all, he happened to be backstage. He comes along occasionally to NXT and lends his advice to some of the younger guys. Apparently, watching the match, Pat wasn’t meant to come out but he just foxed his way through – he said he was going to jump the railings, no matter what Triple H said! He just shook my hand and congratulated me and told me he’d enjoyed the match which coming from someone like Pat is huge. It was surreal. Someone like Pat giving you that nod, it is unbelievable.”

NXT wrestler Finn Balor recently talked to the Score in the Ireland. Here are some highlights;

Being in WWE: “It’s kind of like the culmination of 14 years hard work. At the beginning, I just wanted to have a wrestling match, and I did that in England. I just took it step by step and to be here in WWE – it’s a real feeling of achievement. But now that I’m here, I want to achieve more. So this is the beginning of a whole new chapter for me. It’s been an incredible experience so far and I’m just looking forward to seeing what happens in the future. WWE is the biggest wrestling company in the world, and it is that for a reason.”

Learning at the WWE Performance Center: “The coaches here include Billy Gunn, Matt Bloom, Norman Smiley and Terry Taylorナ So there’s just a wealth of experience to learn from. It’s really been like the floodgates have opened for me. The amount I’ve learned in the last three or four months here has surpassed what I learned in the past three or four years before that.”

The busy schedule in NXT: “The schedule here [is manic]. We’re working six days a week. We train in the ring three hours in the morning and an hour and a half in the weight room in the afternoon Monday to Friday. Then Thursday, Friday and Saturday we have shows in the evening where we’re competing. So there’s very little free time to get home, and at the moment, it’s all eyes on the prize, and training to build my career in NXT.”
