Many are good, some are great, but there's only one Roman! For this brash athlete, achieving success is a matter
of choice and the wrestling world knows that he's a serious force to be reckoned with. Some mistake his extreme confidence
for an overbearing ego, but opponents are quick to discover his self-exaggerations are the truth. Roman Zachary is a
multifaceted athlete with a mastery of wrestling fundamentals that have helped him in his steady rise. The Fifth Element
is a complete ring technician with polished athleticism who combines all aspects of the sport into his repertoire. Make
no mistake, Zachary relies on more than just pure physicality to achieve his goals. He has the ability to plan, manipulate
and scheme, even if it means aligning with sworn enemies in the short term, as long as the end result falls in his favor.
You have been forewarned by Roman that, "Breaking bones is my business, and business is good!"
