– Noam Dar is back.
The 24-year-old Israeli-born Scottish grappler wrestled his first match since December at Tuesday’s 2018 WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament event at Royal Albert Hall in London, England.
Dar competed in a Fatal 4-Way Match to determine the No. 1 Contender to the WWE United Kingdom Championship held by Pete Dunne. Click here to find out the result.
Dar underwent successful surgery to his left knee on December 14, 2017, in Orlando, Florida after sustaining the injury during a Fatal 4-Way Match on November 27, where he faced Rich Swann, Akira Tozawa, and Ariya Daivari.
Following weeks of lingering issues, the knee gave out on Dar, prompting him to undergo an MRI and seek surgery.
“I learned that I had a tear of the meniscus — a bucket handle tear — which is a pretty common tear for athletes,” Dar told WWE.com after his surgery, which was the first time underwent an invasive procedure.
At the time of surgery, Dar expected to require around five months of recovery time and preparation before he could return to the ring. He passed the six-month mark last week.
Dar was last seen as part of Enzo Amore’s “Zo Train,” a heel faction that also included Ariya Daivari, Drew Gulak, and Tony Nese. The faction dissolved following Amore’s release from WWE in January.
