WWE Cruiserweight Classic participant Noam Dar recently spoke with The Jewish Journal, which billed him as WWE's first Israeli wrestler. The full interview can be found at this link. Below are highlights:

Once televised you will officially be the first Israeli to wrestle on a WWE show. What does that mean to you?

A huge honour 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.

There are not a lot of Jews in professional wrestling, but those who have entered the squared circle have done well (i.e. Randy Savage, Kane, Goldberg, etc). How far can you make it in the 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.

Who will be your toughest opponent in the Global Cruiserweight Championship? Have you faced any of the competitors before?

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!
