Fifth Element Roman Zachary
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 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. Zachary is a multifaceted athlete with a mastery of wrestling fundamentals that have helped his steady rise. The Fifth Element is a complete ring technician who combines all aspects of the sport into his repertoire. Make no mistake, Zachary relies on more than just physicality to achieve his goals. He has the ability to manipulate, even if it means aligning with sworn enemies, 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!"
