Sabian was trained by the Knight family, which includes Saraya Knight and Ricky Knight, and even earned a cameo in their upcoming feature film Fighting With My Family. He has also worked under Jimmy Ocean, Jason Cross, Karl Kramer, and Frank “Chic” Cullen. Like most Knight family graduates Sabian worked mostly for World Association Of Wrestling and from 2010 to 2016 never managed to break outside of his home promotion. Apart from the WAW, he tried his hand at RCWA, FSW, ASW, DOA, LDN, TNT, Superstar Promotions, and ECTA (France). He did have success in WAW though as he was a three-time WAW World Tag Team champion, a two-time Open Light Weight Heavyweight champion and a former WAW U23 champion.
In 2017 Sabian had his breakout year thanks to Lucha Forever, in it’s short time LF introduced many new stars to a bigger audience as newer talent like Sabian got to regularly share a card with the likes of Pete Dunne, Tyler Bate, Travis Banks, CCK and many more. What helped the young Sabian stand out was the fact that he was the total package. At the time BritWres was dominated by a core group of wrestlers but Sabian stood out with his look, promo ability, character and the great heat he could draw. It’s no coincidence that this was the year where he made his way to other high-level companies like Southside Wrestling Entertainment and Internationale Pro Wrestling: the UK among others.
With his name on people’s lips Sabian set out to take over in 2018 and he had a career year. He was one of the better parts of the return of World Of Sport and captured the tag team championships alongside Iestyn Rees on national television. On the independent circuit, he became IPW: UK World Champion and debuted for indie giants RevPro, PROGRESS and Over The Top Wrestling.
Beyond Gorilla photographer Robyn Goding revealed that Sabian was joining AEW and another indie promotion that employs Sabian mentioned he had signed with the new company. AEW EVP Cody Rhodes also revealed his participation in the much-awaited upcoming pay-per-view event Double or Nothing, which was sold out in under four minutes. He will be participating in the Over the Budget Battle Royale in the PPV.
