Let's start with a little quiz; can you name a professional wrestler born in Israel? I'm sure there are a few names, but off the top of my head Noam Dar is the only one that comes to mind. Dar was born in the city of Tel Aviv, Israel's second largest after the capital Jerusalem.
Dar was born in July 1993, which makes him a terrifying 22-years-old at the time of writing. By 1993 I was already tired of Hulk Hogan. Israel doesn't exactly have the longest history of professional wrestling, but a successful career for Noam Dar could go a long way towards changing that.
Wikipedia tells me that there was an Israeli Pro Wrestling Association, but the promotion closed its doors in 2014. It still acts as a school however.
Born in the middle of Wales in the middle of the 1980's, John can't quite remember when he started watching wrestling but he has a terrible feeling that Dino Bravo was involved. Now living in Prague, John spends most of his time trying to work out how Tomohiro Ishii still stands upright. His favourite wrestler of all time is Dean Malenko, but really it is Repo Man. He is the author of 'An Illustrated History of Slavic Misery', the best book about the Slavic people that you haven't yet read. You can buy it at the link below...
