British wrestling is nothing as popular as it’s American counterpart, but the Independent circuit in the Queen’s homeland is bursting at the seams with talent. Perhaps one of the fastest rising stars in the UK is Zack Sabre, Jr., a technical wrestler whose moveset is so varied, he makes the submission moves you see on TV look like painless clinches.
Zack shot to fame most noticeably in 2008, where he butted heads with Bryan Danielson in the Coventry-based company known as Triple X Wrestling. The two put on a great bout, and although Sabre, Jr. didn’t manage to get the victory, the bout made its way into the history books as one of the best matches of the year.
As well as working for Triple X Wrestling, Zack has made his mark all over the country. He has done much more than just show his face in over ten British companies, including the likes of IPW:UK and FWA. Through this, he has picked up some of the most elusive titles in the industry, including the NWA UK Junior Heavyweight Title, which he has held for over an impressive five years.
Although Zack’s name isn’t so well-known, big things are certainly expected of him. He’s already taken his talents over the borders to Germany, and his high-risk style and plethora of submission holds could soon be gracing the States. Keep your eyes peeled for this one!
