Zack Sabre Jr. will not defend the PWG title tomorrow after sustaining an injury in Germany … but his sponsor claims the indie standout will be back in action before the WWE Cruiserweight Classic.
According to SPLX Apparel, Sabre sustained a four-centimeter gash to his forearm after crashing into a ring post while wrestling Big Daddy Walter for wXw.
The match was terminated following the injury and Sabre was taken to a hospital where he received five stitches. Luckily, no arteries were damaged and the injury is reportedly healing well.
Sabre issued a statement saying, “This is the first injury in my 12-year career that has deemed it necessary to cancel dates, and whilst I have absolutely no desire to miss any in-ring time I’m remaining positive that the injury wasn’t more serious.”
ZSJ is scheduled to return on June 12th when he faces Kurt Angle at a Revolution Pro event. The first night of the CWC begins on June 23rd.
The wrestler adds, “I’m going to make the most of some rare downtime with my family, a chance to rest and refresh my body, start home-brewing my own kombucha, alphabetise my record collection and prepare myself mentally and physically for the biggest summer of my career.”
