Championships and AccomplishmentsEdit
Wrestling Style Edit
Since the beginning of Anwar's career he has kept a similar style focusing on the high risk diving moves which first attracted the crowds back in Vegas Championship Wrestling which gained the Crash City Rockers a large following. After Anwar and JLA split midway through 2009 Anwar went back to the gym and focused more on traditional moves and less on diving moves which were causing injury to himself. Anwar spent day and night working on new moves and building muscle debuting his new move-set in his first match in Full Metal Wrestling's feeder league New Era Wrestling. Anwar was largely criticized for turning his back on the style that made him famous and opened doors for his USA wrestling career. Anwar often pays homage to his former style and tag team partner JLA by pulling off frog splashes and moonsults in major wrestling matches.
Anwar currently divides his time between homes in Melbourne, Australia and Chicago, Illinois. It is known that Anwar is a Miami Heat and Chicago Bull season ticket holder often being seen at Chicago/Miami games.
On October 16, 2009, Anwar punched a fan after she spat at him with fans outside the Circus Circus Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada after a night out with fellow VCW superstars. As a result of the incident, police detained Anwar and the woman, but released them without charge. Police later announced that they would not press charges against anyone in the brawl as it was "hard to determine who provoked who".
On January 17, 2010, Anwar and former tag-team partner Jerry Anderson (better known as JLA "The Stooge") were arrested in Miami, Florida after leaving a Miami Heat basketball game. A police report stated that Anwar punched Anderson and the other passengers in the cab. The two were given tickets for public intoxication and released. On January 28th, 2010 after not going to court or paying his ticket, Miami Police issued an arrest warrant for the TWR star. However, later that day the court dropped the warrant saying that earlier that day Anwar had paid the ticket. Only weeks later TWR staff addressed the issue of Anwar's drug abuse and alcoholism that he was moved from his former home in Miami, FL and moved to Chicago in which Anwar regularly attended a drug and alcohol rehabilitation clinic.
Anwar's sporting manager announced in a press conference that "...(Anwar) will be shooting a documentry with an undisclosed film company..." hopefully reserecting an almost failed career.
On the 4th of May, 2011 Anwar was granted a Canadian Citizenship making Anwar a full time FMW employee.
