It was announced during a segment on the latest episode of 205 Live that Cruiserweight Star Noam Dar has suffered an injury and he would require a knee surgery.
Now WWE has revealed that Dar suffered a meniscus tear during the November 27th episode of Raw and underwent successful surgery in Orlando on Thursday.
Commenting on his status, the Raw star revealed that while the exact timeframe for his return is yet to be decided, he is expected to stay out of action for almost 5 months:
“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.”
WWE notes that the injury had been bothering Noam for weeks but his knee went out again this past weekend. He competed in a Fatal Four Way match during the mentioned Raw episode.
We’ll update you once a confirmed schedule for Noam Dar’s return to WWE programming is revealed.
