Michigan native Zach Gowen comes to AADL to share his unique and inspirational story chronicled in his 2018 book High Risk Maneuvers: How I Turned My Handicaps Into Opportunities. Zach lost his left leg to cancer at the age of eight. It was his dream to become the first one-legged WWE Superstar, which he achieved in 2003. During his time with the WWE, he wrestled such stars as Brock Lesnar, the Big Show, and John Cena. In 2016, Zach was a contestant on American Ninja Warrior.
Zach's message of life is not about what happens to us, but about how we respond to what happens to us, permeates every aspect of his life. Zach has wrestled with demons, climbed the highest peaks, and has overcome some of the biggest obstacles life can offer.
Daring to defy the odds, expectations, and limitations society imposed on him, Zach became one of the most inspirational athletes in the world. He now travels the country sharing his message of hope and empowerment to people of all backgrounds.
