Background Information

Briefly competed in PrYde early in 2007 before getting ijured in an Evolution title match against Mighty Mick. During his rehab his manager Champagne Dwayne Dealins stole all of his money and left him penniless stuck in New Jersey. After a chance meeting with Trey Ortega and a stolen wallet later Benz made his way to Minnesota and managed to get a new PrYde contract. He was living in a dumpster behind the arena hoping to fight his way to the top. But in 2010 with enough money, he rented a house in Detroit, Michigan and a new wardrobe.

PrYde Wrestling

Benz stayed in PrYde in their early days until the March 5, 2007 edition of the show. On that show, Benz was injured in a match with Might Mick and wouldn't return for months.

On October 23, 2007, Benz resigned with PrYde and on October 29, he would interrupt a match between Might Mick and Chris Moore. He remains on the PrYde roster to this day and competes against some of the best talent on the roster, hoping to prove that he is one of the best wrestlers in the company and the world. After a 3-year hiatus, Benz has changed his PrYDE contract to a part-time contract and has signed a part-time contract with Florida Wrestling Corporation (FWC) and debuted on August 30, 2010.

Suicide Attempt and Extreme Championship Wrestling (2010-present)

Following his release from PrYde Wrestling, he ended up in debt and lost his apartment in Detroit. His clothes were repossessed and Benz jumped off a 3 story building in hope of death. He was revived. He entered rehab for three months and suffered from depression. However, Extreme Championship offered him $1,000,000 to help build his life back and wrestle for them. He joined the company and was awarded the ECW Championship. Benz now lives in Miami and married his long time girlfriend.
