World Junior Heavyweight Champion (2007–2010)
After winning the title, Sabian began a small feud with female wrestler LuFisto. On November 10, Sabian retained his title against LuFisto. On December 8, the BLKOUT was banned from ringside during Sabian's title rematch with LuFisto. After Sabian again retained his title, Sexxxy Eddy struck LuFisto with a steel chair and in response, Sabian attacked Eddy and hugged LuFisto as a sign of respect. On January 12, 2008, Sabian retained the World Junior Heavyweight Title after defeating Azrieal. On May 10, Sabian won the eighth annual Best of the Best tournament after defeating Drake Younger, Bruce Maxwell and TJ Cannon in the first round, rival Drew Gulak in the quarterfinals and Chuck Taylor in the finals. Despite winning the tournament, Sabian would go on to lose the World Junior Heavyweight Title to Taylor in a title match shortly after the tournament. On October 11, Sabian and Ruckus defeated 2 Girls 1 Cup (Greg Excellent and Beef Wellington) to win their third World Tag Team Championship. On November 8, Sabian and Ruckus lost the title back to 2 Girls 1 Cup.
Beginning in 2009, Sabian made only sporadic appearances in CZW due to competing throughout the independent circuit and overseas for International Pro Wrestling: United Kingdom. On June 13, Sabian was eliminated in the first round of ninth annual Best of the Best tournament by Shiima Xion. Following this, Sabian would team with fellow BLKOUT members to compete for the World Tag Team Championship on a few occasions, but was unsuccessful in reclaiming the title. On February 13, 2010, Sabian won a six-way match to regain the World Junior Heavyweight Championship. Exactly a month later, he retained the title against Adam Cole after their match ended in a draw. On May 8, Sabian lost the title to Cole in a three-way match that also involved fellow BLKOUT member Ruckus.
