The world got a glimpse of just how good Zack Sabre Jr. Jason Pierre-Paul Jersey . was going to be when he wrestled future WWE world heavyweight champion Daniel Bryan eight years ago.Well, not the entire world.A big turning point in my career was wrestling him in front of 80 people in a pub in Coventry [England] in 2008, Sabre told ESPN, laughing.The bout, for independent promotion Triple X Wrestling, was considered a Match of the Year candidate. They wrestled once more in 2009, shortly before Bryan signed with WWE.?Now 29, Sabre is one of the hottest free agents in professional wrestling, and he truly introduced himself on the global stage in WWEs Cruiserweight Classic.People started to take notice of me more when I wrestled him.?But also, when youre in ring with someone so natural who understands professional wrestling so well like Daniel Bryan, you cant help but have some of that rub off on you, Sabre said.?When I was beginning my training, and was starting to absorb and study wrestling, he was someone who really stood out.The pair reunited at the Cruiserweight Classic. Bryan, now retired due to concussion issues, is part of the commentary team for the 32-man tournament on the WWE Network, which has brought together competitors from all corners of the world.Ive been picking his brains about some stuff. Hes given me some good pointers, Sabre said.?His commentary with Mauro Ranallo is remarkable. I love it.To have him involved in the project gives an authenticity to the fans, especially the kind of fans that were already invested in the idea of this tournament. But if youre a fan who isnt familiar with international wrestling, with independent and cruiserweight wrestling, I think having Daniel involved in this project is such a huge benefit.Sabre certainly stands out more than most of the competitors in the Cruiserweight Classic -- not just for his unique Escapology style and technical prowess, which he showcased in a first-round win over Tyson Dux last month -- but also for his physique.The 29-year-old, from Canterbury, England?is 6 feet tall but has a slender build at just 181 pounds -- a far cry from the muscle-bound physiques seen in WWE. Looks can be deceiving, though.The fans have every right to question something, Sabre said. But I feel very confident in the way that I wrestle and the way that I perform, so I think that people will be won over.?Im so passionate about the style. It seems sometimes Im having fun with it, but my second-round match against Drew Gulak will show a grittier aspect of the way that I wrestle, so Im really excited.There have been reports that Sabre has already been offered a contract by WWE, with several of his fellow Cruiserweight Classic competitors slated to debut in Raws new cruiserweight division on Sept. 19.But Sabre confirmed to ESPN he still has aspirations on the independent scene.I think its definitely appealing, he said, when asked if he sees his future in the company. What NXT has become, I could definitely see myself in that environment. I would benefit from it.?But I do have a personal journey as a professional wrestler that I want to travel.There are a lot of things I want to achieve.?There are still some bits and pieces that Ive got on coming up. Im very happy doing what Im doing now. I have other aspirations, so well just see what happens.He achieved one of his goals when he faced ex-WWE legend Kurt Angle in June at Bethnal Greens famous York Hall in London.It was an incredible experience, Sabre said. Kurt was a childhood hero of mine. I told my mum when the match was announced and she said, Oh, you used to have a poster of him on your wall.?When you think about his period in WWE, and the high level he became so quickly, its insane. As a fan of him first and foremost, I think it would be nice to see him finish out his career there definitely.For now, Sabre is still part of Revolution Pro Wrestling in the United Kingdom, and hell be heading into one of the most prestigious independent wrestling tournaments of the year -- Pro Wrestling Guerillas Battle of Los Angeles -- as PWG champion in early September.Its been quite surreal, really, Sabre said of his recent exposure. Friends from university and school have popped out of nowhere, people I presumed wouldnt have a clue. Their support reaffirms the scope WWE has, with all these people coming out of the woodwork. Its been very nice to receive support from people, in and out of the wrestling community.It shows WWE is such a global phenomenon. For friends and family that have known Ive been on a wrestling journey for such a long period, WWE is kind of validation to them. Its an achievement in itself, by far the biggest platform Ive been on.He has come a long way from that pub in Coventry, and with the path hes on, Sabre looks to have a long ways yet to go. Damon Harrison Jersey . Brandon Morrow allowed five runs on six hits over three innings. He struck out two, walked one and hit a batter. Edwin Encarnacion had a two-out, bases loaded two-RBI double in the third inning. Mark Bavaro Jersey . Emery skated the length of the ice and fought an unwilling Holtby during the third period of the Flyers 7-0 loss Friday night in Philadelphia. He was given 29 penalty minutes, including a game misconduct. But Emery did not face even a disciplinary hearing with NHL senior vice president of player safety Brendan Shanahan because rules 46. http:///...ic-john-jerry-jersey . -- Canadian Andrew Wiggins got the ball on the wing, made a nifty spin move and then let go with a soft floater from about 10 feet that swished through the net in Allen Fieldhouse.As a player, Patrick Roy enjoyed a great deal of success, winning three Vezina Trophies and earning six NHL All-Star selections en route to his election to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2006. That same year, he won a Memorial Cup as the head coach and part owner of the QMJHLs Quebec Remparts. Patrick Roy knows how to win, both as a player and a head coach. Will that translate into success as the new head coach of the Colorado Avalanche? The Avalanche finished with the second lowest point total in the NHL this season so there is plenty of work to do. His success with the Remparts shows an ability to work with young talent and his new roster is peppered with just that, including the likes of Gabriel Landeskog, Matt Duchene and Ryan OReilly, who have yet to reach their enormous potential. And they hold the first overall selection in Junes NHL Draft with the opportunity to add a blue-chip prospect like Portland Winterhawks defenceman Seth Jones, who grew up in Denver idolizing Roy and new Avalanche executive vice-president of hockey operations Joe Sakic, or Halifax Mooseheads forward Nate MacKinnon. The timing may be perfect for a coach like Roy to grow with this group and become a perrennial power in the not-too-distant future. Duke Ihenacho Jersey. However, coaching at the junior level is much different than being behind the bench at the professional level. Roy was an emotional player with the Canadiens and the Avalanche. He was an emotional coach with the Remparts. Will that emotion be a blessing or a curse in the NHL? Junior-aged players may respond well to a verbal blasting because they want to get to the next level. NHL players are more likely to tune out a coach who takes them to task for every little breakdown. But Roy could be different due to his instant credibility as a Hall of Famer who has had success in the coaching ranks. How many young players have the courage to confront Roy for something he doesnt like? One thing is for sure, Roy will not leave any of his goaltenders in net for nine straight goals! Will Roy lead this group of young talent to the playoffs in short order and then challenge for a Stanley Cup for years to come? Or will the jump from junior to the NHL prove to be too much of a change for his coaching style? How much success will Patrick Roy experience as head coach of the Colorado Avalanche?
