Former G1 Climax winner Zack Sabre Jr. recently sat down with New Japan Pro Wrestling and during the interview, Sabre Jr. explained why he no longer identifies with the “cruiserweight”(WWE)/ Junior Heavyweight (NJPW) term, despite his small build.
Sabre Jr.: “It would be like asking a musician: ‘Why didn’t you sign with the biggest record label?’ I’m just concerned with being the best professional wrestler I can be. It was really just a personal choice, this is my path. Oh yeah, I’m done with being a Junior Heavyweight. Really, my interest in focusing on being a Heavyweight is a stylistic one. Obviously I’m much smaller than a lot of the Heavyweights, but I think my style is much more in-tune with Heavyweight wrestling.”
