Professional wrestling career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Sabian began his career with the World Association of Wrestling after graduating from the promotion's wrestling school.[5] He competed throughout England and Europe, capturing various titles including the IPW:UK World Championship and World Of Sport Wrestling Tag Team Championship. In 2018, he debuted for Ring of Honor.[7]

All Elite Wrestling (2019-present)[edit]

In February 2019, Sabian signed with All Elite Wrestling. Sabian made his AEW debut at Double or Nothing where he defeated Sammy Guevara in AEW's first ever singles match.[8]

In late December, Sabian established himself as a heel after calling out members of The Elite where he would face Kenny Omega on 10 December on Dark[9] and Cody on 30 January, losing both matches. Sabian would also start to be managed by his real-life girlfriend Penelope Ford as he began feuding with Joey Janela leading up to 19 February, when he defeated Janela.

On 22 April Sabian took part in a tournament to crown the inaugural AEW TNT Championship where he lost to Dustin Rhodes in the first round.

On 15 April Sabian began teaming with Jimmy Havoc after Havoc delivered a DDT to Orange Cassidy on the floor during his match against Chuck Taylor. They made their tag team debut losing to Best Friends in a no disqualifications tag team match on the 29 April edition of Dynamite. They would subsequently call themselves The Superbad Squad. They defeated SoCal Uncensored's Frankie Kazarian and Scorpio Sky in a number one contender's match for the AEW World Tag Team Championship on 27 May. They faced the champions Kenny Omega and "Hangman" Adam Page on 3 June for the titles in a losing effort. Sabian and Havoc’s team ended when Havoc was released by AEW on 13 August.

At All Out, Sabian announced that he and Ford were getting married while also teasing that he will reveal who his best man is for the wedding on the following Dynamite. On the 9 September episode of Dynamite, Miro was revealed to be the best man for Sabian and Ford's wedding.
