Zack Sabre Jr. Explains Why He Did Not Sign With WWE & Why He No Longer Identifies Himself As A “Junior Heavyweight”


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.”
