Zach Gowen had a special Friday night while attending WWE SmackDown.
In a post on Twitter, the former WWE wrestler noted that he got to get into the ring at the show. He shared a photo with his children and thanked the company for letting them experience the moment.
He wrote in the caption: “Didn’t expect my first time back in a WWE ring to be with my oldest boys, but it was perfect. Thank you @WWE.”
Gowen, a one-legged wrestler, signed with WWE in 2003, where he had a short run on SmackDown, most notably feuding with Vince McMahon and Brock Lesnar.
Fans still remember Lesnar beating Gowen during an August SmackDown match. He got over with the fans for his likeability and in-ring skills. The company later released him in 2004.
Following his WWE departure, he worked for several independent wrestling promotions.
