TEH COBRYN~!, born in Northeastern Pennsylvania some 25 years ago, grew up taking advantage of every opportunity. From the time he was in Kindergarten and won The Nobel Peace prize by creating a fictional Mt Rushmore made out of legos and Lincoln logs that included historical leaders from around the world, to the time he was banging his hot Math teacher Mrs. Nicastro in the seventh grade. He dominated in high school athletics receiving accolades as an All American in football, baseball, basketball, field hockey, table tennis, golf, swim team, track team, wrestling and invented two sports that are now gaining popularity in the Northeast.
After being given two honorary doctorate degrees from Ivy league colleges Harvard and Penn before even graduating from high school, Cobryn felt no desire to further his education and turned to the obvious choice ... professional wrestling.
Cobryn didn't spend much time in Independent Federations. He toured briefly around the country with various Indy Feds as a baby face known as Haliver Chuten, but will deny it vehemently. After three months and ten different boardwalks he eventually broke into his first national federation ... the UWA. Cobryn joined the Society of the New Breed almost as soon as he entered the UWA, and with them he was guided and developed into a smart wrestler that finds ways to win. He quickly rose through the ranks and collected title after title, before eventually winning the UWA World Championship.
The UWA Years
Cobryn began his UWA career with ten consecutive wins. He was quickly recruited by Legend Hardkore Jonnie Valentine into the Society of A New Breed, which is largely known as the most dominant stable in efedding history. It included Jonnie, The Hellhounds, Cobryn, Chupacabra, Kilroy Evans and for a brief period of time Godzilla.
Cobryn won the UWA UK Championship almost immediately and followed it with a win over Big Stan Wilson to become a double champion when he won the UWA Internet title from him.
Cobryn had his first and some say most memorable feuds in the UWA, where he had blood baths with Hunglow, Kilroy Evans, Chupacabra, Rick Owens, Big Stan, Paul Soutter and Phantom.
Cobryn then went on to accomplish one of the most unbelievable upsets in wrestling history when he ended the tyranny of back stage politicer Tripps and won the UWA World Heavyweight Championship.
The IPW/IWA Years
Cobryn joined the IPW coincidentally at the same time as his mentor Hardkore Jonnie Valentine was also coming back to wrestling. Soon they joined forces and reunited the Society of A New Breed and added legendary Hardkore World Heavyweight Champion Cyrus Williams and Jonnie's son Evan Valentine to the mix.
This group dominated to the point in which the owner guaranteed a title shot for anyone that would turn on the group.
A legendary feud with James Ashcroft was complimented with built up one off ppvs where Cobryn defeated Kilmer, CSK and Hero.
Cobryn finished his IPW/IWA career with an incredible record that included only one loss, though he never received any title shot. Owner Paul Soutter explains "Cobryn doesnt need a title to let everyone know he's the Champion... he just is."
Cobryn joined Tom Lux's promotion upon its inception. It included the most talented roster of all time including greats such as Rally Jackson, Kilroy Evans, Andrew Karnage, Lucifer Jones and Robert Hunglestein to name a few.
This culminated in a two day tournament to crown its champion called The Tournament Of The Elite. Cobryn would go on to win this tournament, beating Paul Soutter, Lucifer Jones, Rally Jackson and eventually Kilroy Evans in the finals.
Cobryn defended against AJ Plummer, and then defended his title in the second annual Tournament Of The Elite.
Cobryn later retired the title.
In the promotion later known as SWAT, Cobryn was undefeated. He defeated Dan Stein in a number one contenders match to move on to win the Ring Syndicate World title from AJ Plummer.
Cobryn then defended the belt against T.H. Power and Rally Jackson before the company changed to SWAT and Cobryn left.
Cobryn also competed in SWAT, but only sparingly.
This is the legendary federation around for 20 years. Cobryn started hot, winning an eventual shot at the World title, but that wouldn't come into fruition for more than a year.
After suffering a surprising and disappointing loss to Tuxedo Mask early, Cobryn won the Hardkore World West Coast Championship in a Battle Royal when he defeated Rally Jackson. He would hold this title until he was upset by Big Bad Bill when Bill became the first man to ever make Cobryn submit.
After collecting himself, Cobryn continued to win the incredibly prestigious Hardkore World American title from Robert Hunglestein III. A title he would carry and defend for many months to come. Until Death Gojira took it in a ladder match.
At the end of the Hardkore World Championship Tournament (Which Cobryn was not in) Cobryn finally got his World title shot. He got revenge upon Big Bad Bill and won the title in dramatic fashion when he began a new version of the Society of A New Breed. This would last nearly four months until a terrible injury to Cobryn and a loss of the World title to Andrew Sinclair.
Nearly a year later, Cobryn returned to the Hallowed Halls of Hardkore World, where he recently won the tag team titles with Robert Hunglestein III and co-started The Next Chapter. Current members are Cobryn, RHIII, James Fierce and Vincent Sylvestri.
Cobryn has also won the six man titles twice, and is a current six man champion as well as holding the Historical Tag Team titles won from Andrew Karnage and Adrian Tanner when Cobryn pinned Tanner after an Answer.
