Notable Feuds and Alliances: (In his own words) Skylar Skelly was the most emotional feud I’ve ever had.
Scot Summers is the feud I’m most synonymous with. Started in 2003 & will probably never end.
Shawn Vexx is an old school, aggressive, passion filled feud.
Mike Dell is probably my favorite opponent of all time.
Robert Evans pushed me further than anyone ever has. He single-handedly saved my career by trying to end it. The weight-loss, the hard work, the new attitude is all due to Robert Evans.
Personal History: (In his own words) (Better read in a bitter ole’ vet voice, which bitter vet voice you choose is up to your discretion) I’ve been wrestling for a long time. Been up & down the roads, seen many crazy sights in many crazy cities…(ok, stop with the bitter vet voice, time to get sentimental) I’ve done some stuff in the ring, but none of that is all that important to me. I main-evented the ECW arena, The Venue & Mohawk… that’s more than I could have ever asked for. I have wrestled Johnny Grunge, Jerry Lynn & Sara Del Rey. I teamed with Brad Armstrong. I lived through wars with Brain Damage & The Necro Butcher. I’ve done so much incredible stuff. I’m so grateful. My career in wrestling has never been about the wrestling, its about giving back.
I have been lucky enough to be mentored by guys like Public Enemy & Jerry Lynn, lucky enough to mentor guys like Robert Evans. I have helped to redefine both hardcore & women’s wrestling alongside some of the greatest performers in the business. I’ve had an incredibly fulfilling career & my only mission I have left is to leave the business better than it was when I was allowed into the club…which is quite a task as I started in the late 90’s, the most acclaimed era of our industry.
