Biography

Childhood

Connor MacManus was born in Dublin, Ireland, in March 1984. He grew up an above-average student, eventually dropping out at 15 and attending college (where he carried a steady 4.0 GPA) by the end of that year. In college, Connor became an avid fan of track & field. He gained a reputation for being one of the most agile, but unfocussed athletes on campus. Before graduating, Connor’s friends signed him up for a semester at one of the world’s most prestigious wrestling schools – that of Angus MacFayden, in Dublin.

Training

Connor joined MacFayden’s academy without hopes or dreams of becoming a wrestler. Instead, he searched to become a writer. However, in training he met two people that would change his life – Rebecca Borrail and Miles Marion. Miles and Connor met on the first day of training, before the other rookies showed up. Connor had showed up an hour early and was in the midst of getting the feel for a wrestling ring when Miles took it upon himself to critique Connor, suggesting that MacManus give up before embarrassing himself.

The two developed a sharp rivalry, until Angus MacFayden himself intervened and attempted to pool their rage into productivity. MacFayden paired Marion and MacManus as sparring partners, and before long, the two began outshining the other students.

In one practice match, Connor faced a man named Chris Geehan, who had, himself, developed a reputation for being underhanded and one who would do anything for a win. Geehan removed the turnbuckle pad from one of the corners and eventually rammed Connor’s bare forehead into the metal, drawing blood and nearly blinding Connor. It was then when Connor MacManus would (quite literally) fall into the arms of Rebecca Borrail.

Rebbecca Borrail

Rebecca intrigued Connor, as she was a tall, gorgeous, redheaded lass who wanted nothing more than to make a living in the bloody-knuckle industry of professional wrestling. The two began dating, and before long, they had fallen hopelessly in love. Between Marion, Geehan, Borrail and MacManus, MacFayden’s training camp of 2002 appeared to be more promising than any other, and validated a special finale to the semester. The two were the golden couple of the training camp, and fellow wrestlers began seeing wedding bells in their future.

The MacFayden Challenge

At the end of the year, MacFayden announced the formation of a unique tournament that would involve all of his students in a single-elimination format. The winner of this tournament would gain a spot in one of Ireland’s most prestigious promotions. It was around this time that Connor’s life would change forever.

Connor, a naïve and ambitious lad, had felt the wrath of Chris Geehan’s will to win, but he had never acted on his impulses for revenge. He came to regret this decision by the end of the first match of MacFayden’s tournament, when Geehan faced Rebecca Borrail in the opening bout. Geehan lived up to his reputation, cheating and beating Rebecca into submission. After the match, Connor vowed revenge on Geehan, demanding that his next match in the tournament be with Chris. Unfortunately, the way the brackets were established brought an end to this dream, and the second round would pit Connor’s best friend, Miles Marion, against Chris instead.

Connor was determined to win this tournament and defend the honor of his girlfriend, but his determination began to overwhelm him. Connor pushed himself further than he had ever gone before, and in doing so, he neglected the affection of Rebecca. Ignoring the signs, Connor continued to train, relentlessly, and within days of his next match, Rebecca threatened to break up with him. Connor desperately repaired their relationship, and promised to spend the night with Rebecca after a quick sparring session with Miles.

That night, Connor’s next round opponent challenged MacManus to a brawl, prior to their tournament bout. Connor, crumbling under peer pressure, accepted the fight, and would spend that night bloodying himself in a bar brawl that would make the greatest of Irish combat seem like a bad game of marbles. Connor left the bar a winner, but soon realized that he had mistakenly skipped his date with Rebecca.

The Affair & Chris Geehan

Connor returned to find Rebecca somewhat distraught, but seemingly happy. She nursed him back to manageable health, and soon Connor was prepared for round two of MacFayden’s tournament. Realizing how close he had come to losing the woman who meant the most to him, Connor proposed to Rebecca the morning of his second clash. It was then that Rebecca let Connor know that she had had an affair during his period of neglect.

Connor’s live changed forever on that day. Broken by the betrayal, Connor found Miles, and the two worked on figuring out whom Rebecca had had the affair with. Miles put forth a stream of logic that fit perfectly, suggesting that Chris had been the man she had slept with. Connor accepted the notion, and demanded that MacFayden change his match that night so that he would face Chris, to settle their score.

That night, Connor and Chris had a fight that would live in infamy. Filled to the brim with hatred, with rage, unadulterated bitterness, Connor beat Chris beyond all sense of reason, and accidentally took things beyond the point of no return. By the end of the night, Connor had hit the “move heard around the nation,” when he landed a guillotine neckbreaker across the ropes that would paralyze Chris for life. Connor looked at Chris’ limp body with a sense of guilt, shame and fear – paralyzed in his own way – and as he looked out upon the surrounding crowd, he saw the face of his love, Rebecca. Her face was one of shock, but also one of disappointment. Rebecca would leave Dublin that night, and Connor wouldn’t see her again for years.

The tournament stalled, and Connor was put under the magnifying glass. By the end of a thorough investigation, Connor was cleared of any intentional wrongdoing, and the tournament would continue. In the final round, it would be Connor and Miles who would fight for the championship.

A New Life

After the tournament was completed, Connor and Miles went their separate ways. Miles traveled to America, where he would scour the country for the right federation with which to make his name, and Connor remained in Western Europe. Connor entered the pros first, and before a year had gone by, Connor rose to the top of European wrestling. Connor won the World Championships in a handful of federations, and with his victories he brought a sense of pride and prestige to the titles previously unseen. Connor’s high flying style was a breath of fresh air in a culture so riddled with technical experts, and his will to win was nearly unmatched on a competitive scale that reached from London to Moscow.

By 2004, Connor had become a legend. He posted one of the greatest singles records of all time, and became one of the most over athletes in Europe since Beckham and Lewis. With this new found fame, Connor decided to join the trend of wrestlers who had migrated to film.

Film career

MacManus began writing scripts in his spare time, and before he knew it, his agent was even receiving acting offers. Connor began acting in bit parts, then playing a co-star, and within half a year, rose to starring in an experimental series codenamed “The Cobra.” This series would revolve around a martial artist, and, because of the heavy Italian influence in the writing/directing, the genre of film was referred to as “Spaghetti Eastern.”

The Cobra series revolved around martial arts, and as Connor knew little about them, the producers of his film demanded he find a suitable stunt double. Connor insisted that he could learn Karate before filming began, and the producers presented him with a three-month time table. Connor began immediately, searching the world for the greatest Martial Art teachers, and ended up in Toyko with a zen master referred to him by his friend, Vic. Connor virtually disappeared from the face of the earth for three months, and when he returned to filming in Sicily, Connor wowed critics and fans alike with his newfound Karate acuteness.

While being a large success in the Western European market, Connor’s films never achieved box office warmth across the pond. By October 2005, Connor tired of the film industry, and he returned to wrestling.

Return to Wrestling

Connor incorporated his newfound martial arts into his high flying style, and what came out of this amalgam was dubbed “Cobra,” after the movie which set the hybrid in motion. Connor was again a victorious contender, winning back a majority of his World Championships before the spring of 2006. Sadly, it was around this time that the Irish Wrestling market was raided by the American promotions. It was at this time that Connor’s drive to outdo the competition (which had been narrowed as a result of American raiding) began to sour. In March 2006, Connor announced his retirement – at 22.

Connor revealed in an exclusive interview with a Dublin magazine that one of the most valuable techniques he learned from his teacher in Tokyo was the ability to “go inside,” which essentially refers to meditation. While “inside,” Connor gains access to roughly 80% of his brain, and is able to interact with his subconscious. It is while “inside” that Connor put his scouting of opponents to use, playing out what he has seen from video footage and using this to create a reflection of his opponent’s style with which to practice against. Unfortunately for Connor, as a result of his three month time table, he never exactly mastered the art of turning this ability off.

The result of this inequity meant that Connor’s dreams were replaced by hours of solitude, where his subconscious would fill the void of time with things to keep Connor busy – while he was acting, this would mean his subconscious would give Connor new methods of practicing lines, and while wrestling, it would force Connor to practice and keep himself in fit shape for his opponent. However, now that Connor was retired, one can only wonder what his subconscious forced upon him in the hours of solidarity.

Connor made various public appearances at movie premiers, operas, and he even made various cameo appearances as special referees or as a TV Guest Star. None of this particularly satisfied Connor.

The Millionaire's Mark

In September 2006, Connor attended the opening of an opera in Dublin. It was here that Miles Marion tracked him down, and the two stars of Angus MacFayden’s prided training class reunited.

Miles had changed a lot since Connor had last seen him; he had become the main attraction at an American promotion called the World Wide Wrestling Alliance, and he had gained a reputation for abusing his money and power to get what he wanted. Connor, however, took this with a grain of salt – interpreting this to be jealous slander.

Miles told Connor about igniting a fire under professional wrestling, and suggested that the American market had resulted in the failings of Connor’s Irish promotions, as well as the financial failures of his films. Miles told Connor that the only way to truly become a legend was to prove himself within the confines of a market that believed itself to be the single most important – that of the United States. After a night of selling him, Connor finally accepted Miles’ offer, and the ball was set in motion.

World Wide Wrestling Alliance

Connor returned to wrestling at 3WA’s flagship fall event – Rage in a Cage. Connor debuted alongside Miles, saving him from the clutches of the monstrous Hyde with a steel chair in hand. At the same time, Connor entered 3WA’s “sister” federation, the Athletic Wrestling Alliance.

In 3WA, Miles and Connor formed an alliance with then-3WA Champion Shaun Stetson, and the three men named their stable “the Upper Echelon.” The three men would dominate 3WA, holding the World and Tag Team Championships, and at their peak, Connor would win the World Championship in AWA.

Although the three men seemed to be on top of the world, things began to change behind the scenes. A mysterious stalker began haunting Connor, leaving him notes about him being a traitor, a villain in the eyes of the world. This stalker would evade police and investigators, leaving Connor always looking over his shoulder.

In November of 3WA, Miles Marion decided that his time with Shaun Stetson was not paying dividends, and he challenged Stetson to defend his place amongst the best – more specifically, he challenged him to a match for the 3WA Championship at 3WA: Blood Feud.

In their time working together, Connor and Stetson had developed a brotherly loyalty, and it came as a shock to Connor when Miles demanded that Connor help Marion turn on Stetson to take the 3WA Championship from him. That night, Connor found himself standing in between Miles Marion and Shaun Stetson with a steel chair in hand. Miles’ new associates, Kyko and Robert Lunde, stood at Marion’s side, and would watch as Connor sold his soul to Miles Marion, beating Shaun Stetson within an inch of his life with that chair. Connor would watch as Stetson’s blood coated his hands, grabbing Miles’ hand, and raising it into the air – proclaiming the new alliance the second step of the evolution of the Upper Echelon.

The following month, Connor entered a steep depression; his stalker would up the stakes, attempting to murder MacManus with a poisoned bottle of scotch. Connor began going mad, investigating to find the identity of his stalker, but at the same time, trying to sustain the might of the Echelon. Connor noticed that things within the Echelon were stalling, and MacManus realized that he and Miles could never co-exist in a steady unit without settling their friendly rivalry from MacFayden’s camp. Although the two were like brothers, the fact that they stood dead even with one win, loss and draw a piece, ate at both MacManus and Marion. In an attempt to end this, Connor offered the AWA Title as a sacrifice in order to gain a match with Miles Marion at 3WA’s final event of 2006, Mob Mentality. The two men would spend all of that month preparing for their brawl.

The week before Connor and Miles would duel, MacManus made the long trip back to Dublin, making his trip known only to 3WA Consultant Quentin LeBeau. Connor made his way through the old town, searching out the man he thought was responsible for his stalking – Chris Geehan. Connor and Geehan had a long argument, but afterward, Connor was left without a culprit. MacManus left Geehan’s depressed, knowing that he was in an impossible situation. It was then that he got a phone call from his stalker, voice masked, tone blank. His stalker told him that he had made a mistake in harassing Chris Geehan, and to prevent the pain of other innocents, they would make themselves known to Connor that Sunday, the night of Mob Mentality.

The Revelation

Connor arrived in Toronto, the site of Mob Mentality, cautiously. His full focus was on his stalker, and he allowed his match with Miles Marion to take a backseat in comparison. Waiting feverishly in his locker room, the time finally came for Connor to meet his stalker.

Connor entered the 3WA parking lot that night prepared, calling out his stalker. After months of build up, they would reveal themselves, when Rebecca Borrail emerged from the shadows. Rebecca told Connor that she had stalked Connor in an effort to remind him who he was; to keep him free of Miles’ dark influence, and when Miles had sunk his claws into Connor, forcing him to turn on Stetson, she had seen no other real option than to attempt to salvage his soul through killing him. Failing, Rebecca realized that she had made a mistake, and instead dedicated her efforts to getting Connor to defeat Miles, vanquishing him forever.

When Connor asked her why she had left him, Rebecca replied “not because you paralyzed your man in a blind rage, but because you paralyzed the wrong man.” After four years of deception, Connor finally found full disclosure when Rebecca uttered the phrase that would hit 3WA like a nuclear shell – “It wasn’t Chris I slept with. It was Miles.”

Again filled with rage, the last four years of his life being a lie, Connor entered the 3WA ring with his mind set on destroying Miles Marion and stealing what meant most to him – the World Championship. Connor nearly succeeded, but Robert Lunde and Kyko would intervene, preventing Connor’s victory, and ending the match in a no contest. The Upper Echelon performed a monumental beat down on Connor to ring in 2007, and disowned MacManus from the clique.

Integration with AWA

In February 2007, the feud between Miles Marion and Connor MacManus reached a boiling point. 3WA management begged Connor to cease his war with Miles Marion, as it was tearing the fed apart, but MacManus refused. Knowing that he could not stay in the same fed as Marion, without gunning for Miles' head, Connor left the 3WA and re-joined the Athletic Wrestling Alliance full-time.

Connor instantly got a #1 contender's match for the AWA title; he faced Wayne Don and Il Cognito in a triple threat match. The match had one of the most shocking and memorable endings of all time, when Miles Marion interfered in the match, taking Connor MacManus out with his patented finisher - the Millionaire's Mark.

Their rivalry restored, Connor and Miles are currently preparing for their "final encounter," a match at AWA's April 11 PPV - Blood for Gold.

Across the ocean in America, Connor is working to sustain himself in a federation without Miles Marion... The American Wrestling Association.

I Quit

Unfortunately, Miles Marion followed Connor to the Athletic Wrestling Alliance, and without warning, the Millionaire unleashed an unholy fury upon Connor MacManus, breaking him open on an episode of AWA Saturday Night Adrenaline. The feud continued to built up until AWA's Pay-Per-View, Blood For Gold, where Miles and Connor would settle their feud in an I Quit match.

Leading up to the I Quit match, Connor traveled the world to tie off all the loose ends. He made peace with Angus MacFayden, in what would end up being MacFayden's last public appearance, and he would reunite with Rebecca. Their romance would ignite once again, and with Rebecca's love on his mind, Connor had the courage to face Miles Marion once and for all.

At Blood for Gold, Connor and Miles destroyed each other in a 47-minute marathon that has been dubbed "the four years war." The match ended when Connor MacManus hit a modified version of the Upper Echelon's double team maneuver, the Status Quo, on Marion, forcing him to say the words "I Quit." Having vanquished his opponent, Connor's future became open.

Pentagon of Pain

Connor watched on the sidelines as the AWA hosted a tournament called the "Pentagon of Pain," which would dub the new number-one contender to the AWA Athletic Championship. Among the contenders were newcomers King Nothing, and Kalvin Larrette, as well as AWA star, Michael Mayhem. During the course of the tournament, Connor would also fight off attempted invaders from another federation - Kailus Holmes, Josh Stevens, and Angela Jameson, of the American Wrestling Alliance.

When the dust settled from the Pentagon tournament, it was Michael Mayhem who would be the new number-one contender for the Athletic championship. However, he would win over King Nothing, after Connor MacManus made a surprise appearance. Surprising the wrestling world, Connor (who was scheduled to be a lumberjack for the match) entered the ring as Michael Mayhem attempted to climb a ladder toward the title shot, and as the ladder began to tip, Connor steadied it. Allowing Mayhem to grab his title shot, and dashing all of King Nothing's chances.

Feeling betrayed, King Nothing would begin a search for revenge on Connor MacManus.

The Undefeated Streak

One aspect of Connor MacManus' return to wrestling is his seemingly epic undefeated streak. Since his return on September 31, 2006, Connor MacManus has not lost a one-on-one match, despite competing in four federations (AmericanWA, AthleticWA, XWA & 3WA).

With victories over AmericanWA World Champion Callisto, former 3WA Champion Shaun Stetson, AthleticWA Champions Shane Williams and Il Cognito, Connor has created a new "streak."

Critics of the streak claim that Connor should be not be credited with being "undefeated," when he lost before his initial retirement from wrestling. Supporters of the streak claim that he is undefeated in America—or at least, the Western Hemisphere.


Psyche

If you asked Connor MacManus what his number one attribute is, the answer wouldn't be speed, or strength. Instead, Connor boasts a unique psychological edge over most opponents: his mind.

According to Connor MacManus, he was trained by a man named Rich to use an ancient technique called "going inside."

Essentially, "inside" is a meditative state wherein the user's brain is more open to his consciousness. The 95% of the brain normally only used by the subconscious opens itself, allowing for unlimited creation and imagination within the user's mind. Imagine watching scouting footage of an opponent, going inside, and being able to imagine yourself in the ring with a mental projection of the same opponent. Every bit of what you saw on the footage is there, and you can now essentially spar against your opponent, learning his weaknesses, his style, first-hand.

Some have claimed that a side-effect of learning this technique is the inability to turn it off, resulting in sleepless nights (if a user attempts to sleep and instead goes "inside," his mind is on, and he merely experiences an extremely vivid dream or nightmare). Connor himself claims that he has not mastered the technique, and is haunted by his inability to control it.


Controversy

Many people have raised issues with Connor's methods, claiming that MacManus is practicing mental manipulation, which could result in severe psychological damage. One of Connor MacManus' closest friends, McKenas Derevko, was quoted as saying: "I think Connor's biggest enemy is himself. He has no red zone, he pushes himself harder and harder ... it's a miracle he hasn't snapped."

However, mental manipulation isn't the only attribute of Connor's that has raised eyebrows. A report surfaced in 2005 that Connor MacManus had purchased a series of needles from a group of Russians. When 3WA reporters attempted to discover the mystery behind these needles, they discovered a concept known as "maso-focus." In short, the theory that if one can accept and use pain, they can not only use it for strength, but channel it for focus. The relationship between the needles and this theory shocked supporters of then-Champion MacManus, when their true nature was discovered. According to a report leaked by Jennifer Perezoso, the needles are designed to carry a special powder substance that, when inserted beneath the flesh, are released and begin reacting with muscular tissue. The powder is a special mixture that create an intense burning sensation.

Aside from worry that Connor MacManus was a poor influence from a physical and psychological standpoint, there soon surfaced concerns that MacManus was a poor role model from a moral view.

Connor was a well-known womanizer from the years 2004-2007, dating numerous women - models, actresses and even fans. Most notable of these "relationships" were Jennifer Perezoso (a magazine reporter, and temporary assistant to MacManus) and Caroline Segal (an associate through Connor's agent, McKenas Derevko). Supporters of Connor claim that he is merely searching to fill the gap that Rebecca Borrail left, whereas detractors claim that Connor is merely a womanizer.

Connor has also shown bouts of rage, best exhibited by his reaction to Rebecca Borrail's affair, in which he paralyzed Chris Kirby with an over-the-top neckbreaker.


Sportsmanship

The flip side of this controversy is the aspect that Connor brings at face-value: honesty and sportsmanship in an industry severely lacking both. Connor has made dozens of friends in wrestling and film alike, but far more enemies. Evil seems to find MacManus, and Connor always greets it with a game face and a surprising show of sportsmanship. Supporters of MacManus claim that this makes him a unique and lovable face in professional wrestling, as he always shows respect and dignity in the face of adversity.

One such example of this can be found during Connor MacManus' bitter feud with then-3WA Superstar, Vicious. During this time, MacManus was a member of the evil stable: The Upper Echelon. Vicious and MacManus had three bouts, all of which featured moments of mutual respect between the wrestlers. By the time their feud had ended, Vicious and MacManus became close friends.

When asked about their sudden friendship, Vicious was quoted as saying: "His actions out of the ring may be questionable, but in the ring, MacManus takes wrestling seriously, and is gracious in both winning and losing."

Future

Following the shocking events of the Pentagon of Pain tournament (which climaxed at the AWA PPV - Lethal Lottery), Connor seems to be nearing war with King Nothing. Will these two be able to calm things out, or will King Nothing become the next chapter in the legacy of Connor MacManus, at AWA: Violence is a Virtue?

At the same time, Connor looks to debut in Tornado Alley Wrestling! Based in the middle of the United States, TAW looks to become the new big wrestling promotion in the United States.
