Following this weekend’s New Japan Pro Wrestling Road to Sakura Genesis event, Zack Sabre, Jr was interviewed about his match and cut a promo which has resulted in the WWE Cruiserweight Classic competitor drawing heat from people in Mexico.
“Suzuki-gun, we’re taking over. We’ll take over England,” said Sabre, Jr, via ProWrestlingSheet.com. “We’ll take over Japan. Take over America. Not Mexico … Mexico can f*ck off!”
Sabre’s stable member, Taka Michinoku, attempted to correct Sabre’s comment by telling him he can’t say that, but Sabre undeterred, as he added, “ok, you can go to Mexico then”.
Local Mexican news coverage was not happy with Sabre’s in-character comments, as La Opinion picked up the interview and wrote, “The English fighter Zack Sabre Jr released a disrespectful dart to Mexico. After a fight, he spoke contemptuously of the country.”

As noted, Sabre will be in-action at EVOLVE events during WrestleMania week in New Orleans:

Kicking off my NOLA week with my biggest EVOLVE title defence so far vs Matt Riddle. If it’s not hunks it’s stallions.https://t.co/jaTr2iytWk
