Interview: WWE’s First Israeli Wrestler Noam Dar

My Inbox filled up when people got word that WWE would finally have an Israeli wrestler. Welcome to WWE's “New Era” which features the top independent wrestlers from all over the world. Some have gone to NXT and others straight to the main roster. But Noam Dar and a slew of cruiserweights are getting their start in the Global Cruiserweight Championship. Dar is one of the favorites to win. He is charismatic and athletically gifted. Having wrestled all over the world and against top guys like AJ Styles, Dar should do Israel proud. He is already off and running having won his first match. We caught up with Dar to learn more about the Israeli born pro wrestler.

1) Tell TGR a little bit about yourself?

My names Noam Dar, I'm 22, I'm half Israeli half Scottish born in Tel-Aviv and now living in Scotland have been here (Scotland) since aged 5, I'm a professional wrestler and have been working since age 14.

2) Did you train to be a wrestler in Israel?

No, I wasn't exposed to wrestling until quite late on in my life, around the age of 11. I started training age 14 at the PBW Academy (“>www.TheGreatRabbino.com or follow me on Twitter @TheGreatRabbino
