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. 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 elements of the sport into his repertoire. Roman could easily achieve stardom in any major sport, but

ego, but opponents are quick to discover his self-exaggerations are the truth. You have been forewarned by Roman that,
"Breaking bones is my business, and business is good!"
