Zack Sabre Jr. – technical wizard, RevPro British Heavyweight Champion, windy man, future Prime Minister. Not only is he a master of the mat, he is a master of the soundbite too. When a microphone is presented in front of ZSJ, a nugget of wisdom, an obscure British comedy reference, a wonderfully inventive insult, or simply the word “dickhead” will leave his lips, and these are the best of the best when it comes to his teachings. These are 10 Times Zack Sabre Jr. Proved he is the Most Quotable Man in Professional Wrestling Today.
When he Gave Some Helpful Advice to Pro Wrestlers
NJPW legend Hiroshi Tanahashi once explained why wrestlers don’t just dodge every move that comes their way:
“Actually, we can dodge, obviously, but we don’t. There is a beauty in getting hit. Pro-wrestling is a sport to show one’s strength, to show you can stand up and fight, even when you get hit. We wrestlers make a match more exciting by not dodging, and letting things get heated… We want the audience to empathise with the pain we’re feeling.”
Zack Sabre Jr. however, has a different opinion…

When Warm Beer Wasn’t Good Enough

When Zack Revealed his Thoughts on Kenny Omega
“You’re just a dickhead, mate.” That’s all Zack needs to say, and he will instantly be the best promo of the night. Oh, and extra points for, “I’ve got counters I haven’t even created yet.”
