In a Blood Red podcast special, Paul Gorst sits down with WWE wrestler and Liverpool supporter Zack Gibson to talk following the Reds and working for the world's biggest wrestling company.

Liverpool-born Zack explains how his love of the Reds became incorporated into his act on WWE television on NXT, and reveals why he came up with the name of his painful submission finisher, the 'Shankly Gates'.

There's also a lesser-known-move, the 'Phil Babb Suplex', which hilariously pays homage to an infamous incident involving the former Liverpool defender.

Life on the road with NXT is discussed at length as Zack touches on his Maghull-based wrestling school, which aims to create the next generation of Scouse superstars in the squared circle.

Zack also talks working as a top star in NXT UK and what it will be like when he returns 'home' to wrestle on the card at the Liverpool Olympia shows this weekend.

For Liverpool-supporting wrestling fans, it's a must-listen

Enjoy.
