is a semi-retired English Professional wrestler best known for his work in Joint Promotions during the World of Sport Era. On June 7, 2018 World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) announced that Saint would be the General manager of their United Kingdom brand. Career As a young man Saint was a keen altheltic sportsman and was involved in what Americans would call "Track and Field" sports. He was also an Amateur Boxer and was trained to be such by Alf Robinson. Alf Robinson was a professional Boxer and worked at his families gym in Failsworth, Manchester and it was there that Saint went to learn the trade. While being taught to box he would spar with Alf's son, Billy, but rather than just box they would wrestle, which Saint always came out the worst in because Billy was a rising star in the professional wrestling scene. Despite having only debuted a year or so before Billy Robinson would take Saint under his wing and train him to be a professional wrestler. Eventually Catch Wrestling over took Boxing as Saint's preferred sport. In a way this was dictated by the gym. Despite it being owned and run by boxers ther were far more wrestlers in the gym and so there were more people to wrestle with than there were to box with. Nevertheless, Saint took to wrestling and wrestling took to him. For two years his training continued in the Robinson gym and didn't change until one day he was told that he was going to be training at a different venue. This was to be his first real taste of professional wrestling but Billy Robinson was far from forthcoming with all the important details. He had a series of exhibition matches against other wrestlers with a limited audience watching nearby, little realizing that they were promoters. After the night was finished some of them approached him and asked if he wanted to turn professional and they could get some work for him. When he had turned up for the event he had few aspirations to be a professional wrestler but there were some of the most well known promoters of the day (Jimmy Lewis, Grant Fotheringham, Danny Flynn and Fred Whooley) telling him that he could make it professionally and so he agreed and ended up having his first match against Colin MacDonald on May 18, 1958. Even then Billy Robinson never let Saint into the fact that wrestling was predetermined in nature, he found out from other people, the world of wrestling that Robinson shows him was completely legitimate and 100% straight all the time.
