BIOGRAPHY

A master of joint locks and holds, ZSJ debuted in England in March 2004 and has experience fighting all over Europe, America and Japan. His New Japan debut opposite Katsuyori Shibata at the 45th Anniversary event in 2017 saw him join the ranks of Suzuki-Gun post match, and he and Minoru Suzuki were kindred, psychotic spirits.

Sabre would hold RevPro’s British heavyweight championship three times while competing under the Suzuki-Gun banner for a total of four reigns, including both winning and defending British gold in the Tokyo Dome twice, before tagging with Dangerous Tekkers partner Taichi to capture IWGP Tag Team gold three times between 2020 and 2022.

Yet ZSJ was still dangerous and brutal as a singles competitor. The 2022 New Japan Cup saw Sabre surge to victory, and the Briton only just fell short to Kazuchika Okada later in the spring as they battled for the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship, before putting together a strong campaign in G1 Climax 32, only to be forced out in a two minute loss to Tetsuya Naito.
