Interview with Zach Gowan
Evening one and all.
On a v2 wrestling special edition, Gavin and Adam were joined by the one time WWE superstar Zach Gowen.
For those listeners to young to remember, Zach Gowen was in one of the most controversial storylines of the early 2000s, when he was propelled at just age 19 into a storyline which at one point involved Vince McMahon, Stephanie, Hulk Hogan, Roddy Piper, Brock Lesnar, Kurt Angle and Big Show (and of course the worlds current greatest wrestler, Matt Hardy).
In the storyline, Zach, who in real life had his left leg amputated at the age of 8, was pitted against Mr McMahon in what was billed by Vince as the first ever "real" handicap match.
For anyone who has seen the footage, what Zach achieved in the ring was quite incredible. And that amazing story continues today, long after Zach last appeared in WWE and TNA. Today Zach competes on the independent circuit in a role that he himself admits is the perfect showcase for his talents. Teaming with Gregory Iron (himself suffering from cerebral palsy), Zach has forged an amazing story of how anyone can achieve their dreams when they try.
The interview is a fascinating, uplifting story of how Zach has embraced his skills in a positive way to help inspire those around him.
