WWE superstar Noam Dar underwent successful knee surgery in Orlando on Friday, according to the company’s official website.
Dar, 24, who had previously never undergone surgery of any kind, suffered the injury during the Nov. 27 episode of Monday Night RAW and underwent an MRI earlier this week before opting for the procedure.
“I learned that I had a tear of the meniscus — a bucket handle tear — which is a pretty common tear for athletes,” Dar said.
The Scottish Supernova said that there wasn’t a confirmed timetable for his return, but expected to be out for about five 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,” Dar explained. “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 made his WWE debut during the Cruiserweight Classic in 2016 and has been a mainstay on 205 Live and during RAW’s Cruiserweight division matches.
Prior to his stint in WWE, he competed in numerous other promotions, including Insane Championship Wrestling, PROGRESS and numerous others.
