Independent wrestler Noam Dar recently spoke with The Jewish Journal about the wrestling scene in Israel, the WWE Cruiserweight Classic tournament and more. Below are some of the highlights from the interview.
On who he expects his toughest opponent to be:
“Only a handful of competitors have been confirmed so far and most of them I have competed against. I’d say Zack Sabre Jr will be up there with the toughest of opponents, he’s also someone that’s helped me loads over the years so if things fall into place and we can square off in this tournament then that be really cool, until he breaks a limb I didn’t know I had haha!”
On being the first Israeli to work a television match in WWE:
“A huge honor for sure. To be able to represent not one but two home nations is overwhelming but to actually be the first Israeli born to perform on WWE is something I’ll hold dear for the rest of my life.”
On how far he can make it in WWE:
“I’m honestly not too sure, I’m not the most overly confident guy but I do believe in keeping the head down and working away consistently. In terms of time I feel like I have many years to progress and flourish as a performer, I just hope I can do that whilst with the WWE.”
