Forever Manchester is proud to announce that we have a brand new and extraordinary Ambassador – newly announced World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) star Jack Gallagher!
Hailing from Withington, Jack is Manchester’s first WWE superstar and he’s passionate about his home city. As a teen Jack trained with a community Tae Kwon Do group, similar to the many groups supported by Forever Manchester. Later he began to train in wrestling at Wigan’s legendary Snake Pit Gym. If that wasn’t enough of a Greater Manchester connection, Jack made his debut with Manchester’s only professional wrestling company and Forever Manchester supporters, FutureShock Wrestling, so he really is a homegrown talent.
Jack gained the attention of WWE after competing in their first ever “Cruiserweight Classic” competition which aired earlier this year on the WWE Network. He’ll make his next appearance on WWE’s new show “205 Live”, where the programme will feature the promotion’s Cruiserweight division in which all participants are billed at a weight of 205 lbs or less. The show will premiere on 29th November 2016 on the WWE Network.
In his role as Ambassador Jack will help us to raise the profile of community activity across Greater Manchester to a whole new audience. Jack said: “I’m excited to be involved with Forever Manchester and celebrating the work done by the hundreds of community groups they support. As The Extraordinary Gentleman I’m happy to be involved in an organisation that helps local people do extraordinary things together.”
The team here would like to say a massive thank you to Jack for his involvement and wish him good luck on his adventures with WWE.
