Professional wrestling career[edit]

Early Career (2011-2017)[edit]

Aichner made his professional wrestling debut on December 12, 2011, for New European Championship Wrestling (NEW). In 2012, Fabian competed in the finals of the NEW World Heavyweight Championship tournament but ultimately did not win the tournament nor the championship. In 2013, Fabian once again reached in the finals of a NEW tournament, this time competing in the Deadline tournament but he once again would not win the tournament; the same would happen in the Deadline tournament in 2014. After his return to the independent circuit following the Crusierweight Classic, Fabian would win the NEW World Tag Team Title Tournament with Mexx.[5]

In 2014, Aichner defeated Chaos in the finals in the King Of The North Tournament.[6] At the end of this year Cagematch ranked him No. 5 for the Euro-Match des Jahres Cagematch Year End Awards.[7]

In 2017, Aichner competed for the German Wrestling Federation (GWF) and the Flemish Wrestling Force (FWF).[8][9]

WWE (2016–present)[edit]

In June 2016, WWE announced Aichner as one of the 32 participants in the Cruiserweight Classic tournament.[10][11] He was selected to represent Italy during the tournament.[12][13] In the first round of the tournament, Aichner was eliminated by Jack Gallagher.[14]

On June 5, 2017, it was announced that Aichner had signed a contract with WWE.[15] On June 22, Aichner made his return at a NXT live event in a losing effort against Adrian Jaoude.[citation needed] It was later revealed that Aichner had gained almost 30lbs of muscle since his appearance in the Cruiserweight Classic.[citation needed] He made his television debut on the September 27 episode of NXT, losing to Kassius Ohno. While being under contract with WWE, he made an appearance at Evolve115 (which has WWE partnership), winning the Evolve Championship from Shane Strickland. At Evolve 116, he successfully defended the title against Kassius Ohno. However, he lost the title against Austin Theory at Evolve 117 and is currently wrestling at NXT UK and NXT in a team with Marcel Barthel as the "European Union"
