If you follow independent wrestling in the state of Michigan, chances are you’ve heard of , The “Mad Dragon”, Hakim Zane. Billed at 5’8″, 172 lbs, from Saginaw, Michigan, Zane has been working his wake up the ranks since 2008. Graduating from The Justice League Wrestling School, he is skilled in kickboxing, jiu-jitsu and his intense promos match his incredible ringwork.
Performing primarily in Michigan in various promotions, Dragon branched out to regional territories and tore the house down all over. He would get the call from Anthem’s Impact Wrestling to participate in a reality competition series, Global Forged.
Speaking to Zane at XICW Cobo, he seemed to downplay his status in the competition, as most wrestlers are bound to secrecy upon signing with major companies. Never doubting his hard work and determination, Hakim Zane would win Global Forged, solidifying a spot on the Impact Wrestling roster.
At Impact Wrestling’s PPV, Bound for Glory in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, Zane was shown and said to be debuting soon for the promotion. Results from Bound for Glory can be found, here.
As we await his much anticipated television debut, you can see Hakim Zane tonight! XICW Detroit presents: Best in Detroit 24 at The Imperial House in Clinton Twp, Michigan, bell-time 7 PM.
