International Pro Wrestling: United Kingdom (2006–2012)Edit

On 18 November 2006 at International Pro Wrestling: United Kingdom's (IPW:UK) British Under 23's Championship, Sabre teamed with his partner Jimmy Havoc, as they took on the team of Jexodus in a Triple X Wrestling guest match. Sabre and Havoc lost the bout, but gave a strong effort.

It wasn't until 13 April 2007, when Sabre returned to IPW:UK in Hayling Island. Sabre lost to his current partner Paul Robinson. Just one day later on 14 April 2007, in Buckland, Sabre defeated Paul Robinson to gain his first victory in IPW:UK.[11][12]

Three months later, on 27 July 2007, in Sittingbourne, Sabre lost to Mark Sloan.[13] Sabre would once again be in the ring with Mark Sloan and Paul Robinson on 11 November 2007, in Sittingbourne, in a four-way scramble match that also included Wade Fitzgerald. The experience paid off for Mark Sloan, who came out victorious.[14]

IPW:UK's second show of 2008 took place on 27 January and saw Sabre make his debut in Orpington, which is considered by many as the home of IPW. Zack was featured on the "No Escape" afternoon show where he managed to defeat Mark Sloan and Wade Fitzgerald in a triple threat match.[15]

In 2008, Sabre made it through to the final fourteen of the British National Championship Tournament, hosted by IPW:UK. In the first round of the tournament, Sabre defeated "Hated Heroes" member, Aviv Maayan. In the second round of the tournament, Sabre was pitted against All Star Wrestling regular, Mikey Whiplash. Sabre managed to pick up the win over the more experienced Whiplash, thus scoring a place in the final fourteen. In the final fourteen Sabre was scheduled to wrestle The Last Ninja of 3CW, however due to complications, Jules Lambrini took Ninja's place but was defeated by Sabre. In the quarter finals of the tournament, Sabre defeated "The Wonderkid" Jonny Storm in order to score a place in the semi finals, where he was defeated by eventual winner Terry Frazier, one half of The Kartel.

Sabre finally returned to Non-British-National-Championship-Tournament action in IPW:UK, where he teamed with fellow "Leader Of The New School" Marty Scurll. Sabre and Scurll took on "The Iron Lions", consisting of Andy "Boy" Simmonz & James Tighe, as part of IPW:UK's Fourth Year Anniversary Tour in Bromley on 21 September 2008. "The Iron Lions" were the eventual winners of the contest.[17] IPW:UK held their next show in Wolverhampton on 28 September 2008, once again as part of their Fourth Year Anniversary Tour, which saw Sabre and El Ligero have their first one-on-one meeting, in which El Ligero picked up the victory.[18]

In 2009 Sabre and Scurll focused their attention on the IPW:UK tag team division, and picked up a memorable win against tag team champions The Thrillers during the company's February tour. A highly anticipated rematch finally took place between the teams at the 2009 "Sittingbourne Spectacular" after the Leaders' scheduled opponents had to pull out through injury. This time the championships were on the line, and the Leaders won again to claim their first championship gold in IPW:UK. The match was considered a Match of the Year candidate, and the feud between the Leaders and the Thrillers became the dominant storyline in IPW:UK through the summer, culminating in the Leaders winning a Tables, Ladders, and Chairs match against their rivals in September.

The Leaders have enjoyed a tag title reign until 26 August 2012, where they were defeated by Project EGO.
