As noted, Drew Gulak and Ariya Daivari announced on WWE 205 Live last night that fellow “Zo Train” member Noam Dar suffered a knee injury, and that he might need to undergo surgery.
According to PWInsider.com, Dar’s injury is legitimate, and the Cruiserweight will indeed require surgery. No word on how long the injury will keep Dar out of action.

WWE announced today that a new in-ring series, titled “Mixed Match Challenge”, will premiere on Facebook Watch on January 16th at 10pm EST. The show will be a tournament style series, featuring top talents from both Raw and Smackdown.
PWInsider is noting it will be interesting to see how the new show will impact WWE 205 Live, as the Cruiserweight centered show currently airs immediately after Smackdown Live at 10pm. With the announcement of Mixed Match Challenge, 205 Live will either undergo a time slot change, or will have to be taped in advance, likely before Smackdown Live.

The report adds one of the selling points of WWE 205 Live, which back in 2016 replaced WWE Superstars, is that the WWE was trading a pre-taped show for a live show featuring Cruiserweight action.
