My first reaction: Depending on where a few talents will be placed, it started to seem like there might be an imbalance of heels and faces in the cruiserweight division. We know Cedric Alexander, Gran Metalik, Gurv Sihra, Harv Sihra, HoHo Lun, Jack Gallagher, Lince Dorado, Rich Swann and TJ Perkins were babyfaces (count = 9) while Ariya Daivari, Brian Kendrick, Drew Gulak, Mustafa Ali and Tony Nese were working heel (count = 5). The jury is still out for Akira Tozawa, but already, there's a need for Noam Dar to turn heel as he's one of the guys who can definitely come off as a bit of a douche (I mean that as a compliment). The actual turn itself isn't some drastic shock or masterful switch or anything of the sort, but it doesn't need to be. They simply needed to have more bad guys and for Noam Dar to start acting like someone who should be booed more than cheered, that accomplishes that goal.
