While the formation of the Cruiserweight Classic has proven to be one of the best decisions made by the WWE in recent years, not everything will be smooth sailing.
They’ve signed plenty of talented stars to compete in Raw’s Cruiserweight division which arrives later this month, as the likes of Johnny Gargano, Tommaso Ciampa and many more look to make an instant impact.
Another impressive star involved in the tournament has been Noam Dar; the 23-year-old Scottish star secured himself a WWE deal with some impressive performances, but even that could be in jeopardy now that old tweets have been unearthed and are doing the rounds on social media.

Dar could be facing similar action once the news lands on their desk, and a user going by the name of “@chvrlottesweb” has posted the now-deleted Tweets online.
WILL HE FACE PUNISHMENT?
One read: “I stand corrected, it was my girlfriend, I’m still gonna sexually abuse my little brother. #itsalrightonafridaynight.”
The tweet looks to be part of a conversation, and although it may have been a joke, it’s not something the WWE will want associated with one of their stars.
He then went on to tweet some racist remarks, one referring to the London 2012 Olympics, tweeting: “If you didn’t shout ‘and fried rice!’ At your tv screen when the China team came out, your a racist. #olympicceremony.”
He then went on to tweet another racist remark a year later, tweeting: “Hey, how funny would it be if people used the ‘my ni**a’ song on vines?”
Dar would have been around 18-year-old around the time these tweets were posted, some might blame his foolishness as a youngster for posting offensive messages online, but even though somebody has dug these up to cause him and his career significant harm, the WWE can’t ignore this.
