Bio:
Very few wrestlers around the world can claim to have eight years experience at the tender age of 22, Dar is one of those few. Having already established himself as one of the best performers in Europe he was recently selected for the WWE’s Cruiserweight Classic where he will compete with 31 other men to show who is the best unsigned wrestler in the world today. It was the selection of Noam Dar (and to a slightly lesser degree Zack Sabre Jnr) that led to me creating this profile section that you are now viewing as I had been unable to easilly find a website that gave me the information that I as a wrestling fan want to see.

Dar started his wrestling journey when he joined the PBW Academy and trained under the tutelage of Kid Fite. After seven months of training he was deemed ready to make his a little before his 15th Birthday. He dedicated his weekends to wrestling and either performed or worked as part of the ring crew at a show every weekend.

From there Dar has been able to travel the UK showcasing his impressive skills and progressed into an incredibly talented performer who is equally at home wrestling a comedy match with Grado (I have witnessed them pause a match part way through to share a plate of chips) or a hard hitting Ring Of Honor rules match against Jay Lethal.

Showing that his creativity is not limted to his in-ring exploits, Dar has designed a wide selection of original tshirts and many that parody established brands and his “Dar Wars” and “Adidar” shirts can be seen at shows up and down the country.

Immensely talented, charismatic, personable and possessing a cheeky grin capable of making women weak at the knees (a friend told me this I’m not just guessing) the man once described by Billy Kirkwood as part of ICW’s “Ayrshire Mafia” has even tool he could possibly need to make it as far as he wants in wrestling. It’s time that the rest of the world learn what fans of ICW have known all along “He’s the future, NOAM DAR!”

Dream opponent:
Eddie Guerrero or Big Daddy. Dar believes wrestling Big Daddy could be the easiest AND most entertaining matches he’d ever have and Guerrero is one of the best of all time.

Random fact(s):
Noam Dar was the first person to be interviewed for Calling Spots. Our editor and creator Richard Penaluna contacted the, then teenage, Dar who was kind enough to agree to an interview for a magazine that technically did not exist at the time.

Dar ordered a cool looking snakeskin phone cover online but when it arrived it had a 20 minute instructional video on how to put it together. Being the patient young man that he is Dar he spent 25 minutes diligently following the instructions, cutting, placing and heating the material before it could be placing them on his iPhone. The result was that Dar now has the coolest looking mobile phone in British, nay, World wrestling. He then showed his phone to his best pal Grado but as he did not possess the required patience he ended up supergluing pieces to his phone leaving it looking, in Noam Dar’s words, “awful”.
That right there folks in investigatory journalism at it’s absolute finest!
