Gowen has competed for all three of the top US promotions: World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) on their SmackDown! brand, Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) and Ring of Honor (ROH).
Gowen was diagnosed with cancer as a child. Because of that, he lost his leg at the age of 8. It was a necessary move: according to his doctors and parents, had the amputation not been done, Zach would have died.
Gowen walks with a prosthesis and claims he can wrestle with or without it. However, he wrestles most of his matches without it due to the inherent marketability of seeing a one-legged wrestler compete. Known for his high-flying ability as well as his "one-legged" moonsault, Gowen was a fan favorite simply for the spectacle.
