Noam Dar will now miss WrestleMania, as he's underwent successful knee surgery.
The cruiserweight had his knee repaired Thursday afternoon after tearing his meniscus. WWE.com posted an update on
“I learned that I had a tear of the meniscus — a bucket handle tear — which is a pretty common tear for athletes. We don’t have any confirmed time frame just yet because I obviously need to see the post-op, but it’s more than likely going to be around the five-month mark. That would be with me working extensively at the [WWE] Performance Center, so that will make a huge difference. Staying on top of everything so we can hopefully take that time down a little bit.”
Dar sustained the injury November 27 on Raw, but still appeared on WWE TV the following week. When speaking to WWE.com, he said that The Zo Train has offered him support.
“I talked to [Ariya] Daivari, Tony [Nese] and Drew ‘Gaba-Gulak’. Enzo [Amore], I haven’t spoken to yet. Gulak invited me to ’Star Wars [The Last Jedi],’ but I’m pretty immobile at the moment. Daivari is obviously upset that he’s lost his rooming buddy, so that would be stressful for anyone. So, he’s going to have a long five months of not having my hilarious companionship.”
