Pharaoh Bolding (born July 20, 1982), better known by his ring name, "The Icon" Doctor Phate, is an African-American professional wrestler. He wrestled for various pro wrestling organizations including HCWA, Alpha Championship Wrestling(ACW), Rainbow Pro, Honor Wrestling League, and TiTAN Pro, and SPEAR Wrestling Syndicate, Las Vegas Pro Wrestling, Grapple Arts World-Wide, the Universal Wrestling League, Underground Pro, where he was the longest-reigning Hardcore Champion in the company's history as well as World Champion, and Action Packed Wrestling, where he was the APW World Heavyweight Champion.

Career

HCWA

Phate began his career in the now-defunct Hard Core Wrestling Alliance (HCWA) as a young, cocky upstart who barely backed up all of the talking he did. All of the bravado did very little to overshadow his natural talent, though, and he quickly used his ability to irritate his foes while out-wrestling them to rack up an 18-0 undefeated record before losing to the HCWA North American Champion at the time, Russel Freeman. Losing to Russel seemed to send Phate over the edge and he disappeared for awhile....and came back under the influence of his other personality as a sadistic freak in a girl's catholic school outfit (black skirt, white dress shirt, black tie, black shoes, knee-high white socks) with a 'crush' on Freeman! The unveiling of his other half paid off for Phate as he went on to defeat Freeman in a Last Man Standing encounter to win the North American Title. He retained that the North American Championship a month later in a vicious match of his own creation, The Phatesville Commons Street Fight. The Phatesville Commons Street Fight has the distinction of being the only wrestling exhibition banned in the state of New Jersey. The match itself is a nightmare in barbed wire; the ring ropes top turnbuckle pad, ring steps, and every weapon underneath the ring are covered in strands of razor sharp barbed wire. Dr. Phate was able to defeat Freeman after a vicious piledriver on barbed wire-infested chair followed by a powerbomb through a flaming barbed wire table. The high risk of injury has forced this match to possibly never be sanctioned again. When HCWA shut its doors in late 2004 Phate, still the North American Champion, disappeared from the independent wrestling scene altogether. Where he went and what he did is anyone's guess but most wrestling fans felt they saw Dr. Phate for the last time.

Boy were they ever wrong.


Underground Pro

During the late summer of 2005 Dr. Phate suddenly popped up in Underground Pro Wrestling in his unique schoolgirl attire, cutting a promo that would've made Malcolm McDowell proud. Quoting Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange, Phate made his intentions clear and did what he'd been doing best before he disappeared: freaked people the hell out and got under their skin. Phate would go on to capture the Underground Pro Hardcore Championship within weeks of his debut....and began developing a very surreal and freaky relationship with a young female wrestler named Corinne Summers. Before his career in UGP could really get off the ground the federation went on hiatus, stripping all champions of their respective titles and leaving Phate without a home once again.

Then it happened. What happened?

Phate went back to the streets.

When UGP came back from its four-month hiatus Phate shocked everyone by rolling up to the first UGP show in a lowrider! Decked out in a pair of baggy denim shorts, a black "Scarface" t-shirt, G-Unit sneakers, four-finger rings, and a big platinum chain Phate vowed to regain the title he never lost. Phate would soon regain the Hardcore Championship, replacing UGP Owner J. Hector Banks' Hardcore strap with a specially-made blinged-out spinner title of his own.....but it came at the expense of his budding relationship with Corinne Summers, who he claims shunned his gentlemanly advances and played him for a fool. The heated verbal exchanges between the two soon evolved into violence and the two wrestlers were on a collision course, the Hardcore Championship being the ultimate prize. The UGP faithful were sure Phate couldn't beat a girl and still didn't buy him being sadistic and "hood"...so he proved how much he'd changed by breaking the neck of former UGP female interviewer Amber with a Strong Lariat in the hallway of the UGP Arena! With the psychological damage done Phate was able to squeak by Summers in controversial fashion (pinning her with his feet on the ropes for leverage) and retain his Hardcore Title. Phate went on to enjoy the longest Hardcore Championship reign in Underground Pro history at just short of five months before losing his title to T.I. Charisma at UGP's Bronx Bombing pay-per-view in what has been called the greatest Hardcore Match in UGP history. Never one to let a loss get him down Phate found a golden opportunity a week later.

That golden opportunity was called the UGP Lethal Lottery.

UGP owner Banks, angered by the actions of then Underground Champion Mr. Damnation at the Bronx Bombing pay-per-view, decided to place Damnation in a Slobber-knocker-style match where he would have to beat 12 contenders in a row to retain the title! The order of those wrestlers was determined through picking numbers from a bingo barrel. Phate had the first pick....and picked number 1! Phate, his mind like an evil machine, blackmailed new UGP female interviewer Felicity (who he also had a brief fling with) into aiding him in switching numbers with damn near everyone else on the UGP roster until he obtained the number 12 - the final entrant number! In what is considered arguably the most controversial moment in UGP history Phate had Felicity run interference as he put out contestant number eleven, Jack Vengeance, with a wicked Singapore Cane shot and pulled the battered and bloody champion atop Vengeance to eliminate him! Phate quickly went to work, hitting his patented running lariat to the front of Damnation's injured leg. Before he could get a pinfall, though, a pissed-off Vengeance slid back into the ring, a steel pipe in hand, and swung for the fences...but Phate ducked and the pipe laid out an already groggy Mr. Damnation instead! Phate went on to get the pinfall....and possession of the Underground Pro Underground Championship! A riot damn near happened in New Jersey that night as Phate and Felicity fled the arena!

Then Phate disappeared again.

Phate disappeared from Underground Pro television for three weeks, the Underground Championship in tow. Forever the controversial jerk-off, Phate popped up on Underground Pro's 5/14/06 telecast via satellite and decided to explain his recent disappearance saying that he was tired of being a gimmick - - and leaving with the Underground Championship still in his possession! The company lost many of its fans and talent after this blatantly disrespectful act and UGP went under shortly thereafter.


ACW and the Self-Imposed Hiatus

After spending a few months in TITAN Pro Wrestling toward the end of its run and wrestling in GWA (among other promotions) Phate found himself in Alpha Championship Wrestling. Phate wrestled valiantly while in the employ of ACW but soon became disillusioned with the company after a painful loss to Yoko Satoshi. Phate soon developed a diva-like attitude, no-showed matches, and practically wrote himself out of ACW. Phate took time off to rehabilitate a nagging knee injury and to re-evaluate his career. Phate had made the mistake of no-showing shows for several promoters and almost blacklisted himself from the profession. "The Icon" placed himself in self-imposed exile while he tried to sort out his life in mid-2007.


The Comeback Tour

Doctor Phate announced his return to the sport of pro wrestling at near the end of 2007, stating that he was preparing himself for a comeback tour. "It's not just a comeback to the sport but a comeback to what being a wrestler is all about", stated Phate in a press release. "I have gained a lot from this business but I have not been kind to it in return. Time to change that. From here on out I'm all about proving myself as the great talent that everyone thought I was a few years ago." His first attempt at proving just that would be in Rainbow Pro against the talented Shane Xzavery.


Rainbow Pro and the Hardcore Wrestling Society: December 2007 - January 13, 2008

Phate returned to active competition at the end of 2007 with Rainbow Pro, defeating Shane Xzavery via Gorilla Clutch on December 30, 2007 at the Rubin and Ed Invitational. Sporting a new look and revealing that his exile led him to Osaka, Japan and the dojo of famed Japanese wrestling trainer Takeo Yakamata, Phate performed very well in the match, unleashing new variations on his famed Lariat as well as a stiffer style attributed to training with some of Japan's top up-and-comers. That same week Phate decided to branch his comeback tour out further and joined Hardcore Wrestling Society and SPEAR Wrestling Syndicate as well. Phate was booked to wrestle one half of the Rainbow Pro Duos Champions, Keith Skyfire, in a singles match at Rainbow Pro's Rainbow Without A Cause on January 13, 2008. Doctor Phate won the second contest of his "Comeback Tour" on January 13, 2008 at Rainbow Pro's Rainbow Without A Cause event against one-half of the Rainbow Pro Duos Champions, Keith Skyfire. Phate defeated Skyfire after a physical contest by countering a Shining Wizard attempt with a vicious lariat. Now 2-0 since his comeback, Phate was then booked to face the other half of the Rainbow Pro Duos Champions, Tobias Blythe, with a shot at the Duos Championships on the line if he obtained victory. That same weekend Phate was also booked for his Hardcore Wrestling Society debut against the physical Glasgow Mauler and Michael Morgan in a Steel Cage. On the non-hardcore side of things Phate was booked for his SPEAR Wrestling Syndicate debut as well, a singles contest against the wily Keiji Inoki. The winner of that contest would be scheduled to team with the massive Tower in a non-title contest against the SWS Tag Team Champions Black-and-Blue Enterprises (Chad Leland and The Dan) on the same night.


SPEAR Wrestling Syndicate: January 19, 2008 - February 16, 2008

On January 19, 2008 Doctor Phate entered the ring against the dangerous Keiji Inoki. The prize? A spot in a tag team contest with the smash-mouth Tower against the duo of The Dan and Chaz Leland, Black and Blue Enterprises. Phate defeated Inoki in a very stiff contest, connecting with his Gaijin Killer IV for the victory. Phate would now have the opportunity to become Tower's tag team partner later in the night.

"The Icon" Doctor Phate arriving at the January 19, 2008 SPEAR Wrestling Syndicate event.

On January 19, 2008, the same night Phate defeated Keiji Inoki, he would be back in action as SWS Superstar Tower's tag team partner. At stake? A chance to wrestle for the SWS Tag Team Championships in a Triple Threat Tag Team Match at SWS' January Mayhem pay-per-view. Black and Blue Enterprises (Chaz Leland and The Dan), the Tag Champions at the time, came with their A-game but the duo of Tower and Doctor Phate were able to defeat the two men with a Snake Eyes/Roaring Elbow combination to gain the pinfall victory and build incredible momentum going into the Mayhem pay-per-view on January 26, 2008. At the DVD Taping for SPEAR Wrestling's Mayhem event on January 26, 2008 Doctor Phate and Tower would have their opportunity to defeat Black and Blue Enterprises for the SWS Tag Team Championships...but would alos have to fight the female compatriots of SWS competitor Flap Flanagan, Maria and Tara! The ladies were interjected into the match when SWS competitor Zeke Inferno was put out of the match due to an attack by SWS competitor Cody Frost. With this development making the match an odd menagerie of violence, Phate and Tower were focused on victory nonetheless. Before the duo could actually take on Black and Blue enterprises, though, The Dan shockingly turned on Chaz Leland! Destroying Leland, and seemingly under the control of his brother Cain, The Dan eliminated Leland from the contest then proceeded to drop the Tag Team Titles! Tower and Phate went on to defeat the duo of Maria and Tara and win the SWS Tag Team Championships. Maria and Tara, by some fluke of luck, would receive a rematch for the SWS Tag Team Championships at the February 2, 2008 Road to Revolution show. The team of Tower and Phate had the women beat, ready to nail them with the Gaijin Killer A-Class, when Flap Flanagan rescued them! The Champions would go on to win via disqualification.

At the February 9, 2008 Road to Revolution show Phate and Tower found themselves across from the religious sadists Chaz Leland and Smoke, better known as The New Church. Phate would get the victory for his team, rolling up Smoke, but not before The Church's newest recruit came out to assault Tower. The new recruit, the masked man named Oblivion, and his cohorts would go on to violently assault the Tag Team Champions. The assault triggered something in "The Icon", bringing out an aspect of his personality that would slowly unfurl itself leading into the February 16, 2008 Road to Revolution show. At the February 16th event Tower and Phate would have to face all three members of The New Church in a Handicap Tag Team contest. There was much speculation leading up to SPEAR's Road to Revolution show as to what Doctor Phate's mindset was. Phate shocked the world by returning back to his roots, once again becoming the Twisted Catholic Schoolgirl....and a quartet of vicious female bodyguards called The Harajuku Girls. The New Church's assault had lit the fires of violence inside of his fragile psyche once more. He and Tower would go on to win their Handicap Tag match, The Harajuku Girls dismantling Chaz Leland while the referee was distracted. The New Church, enraged, would jump the Champions once again, losing the battle but garnering a shred of momentum going in to February 23, 2008's Revolution mega-event.


Hardcore Wrestling Society: Controversy and the Chaz Leland Incident

While the other events in his career in January 2008 were rolling steady, Phate was becoming increasingly frustrated with not being booked by Hardcore Wrestling Society Owner Chaz Leland. Enraged, Phate found himself in Leland's office looking for answers. What he found was himself in HWS' first-ever Steel Cage Triple Threat Match against The Glasgow Mauler and Michael Morgan! Angered by what he felt was obviously a deliberate attempt to screw him, Phate found a kindred spirit in another fellow HWS Superstar - the man called J Twist. Twist had been almost screwed out of his victory over Stevie Starr on the January 14, 2008 edition of HWS Sacrifice by Chaz Leland himself, Twist was also out for blood. Calling a press conference, Phate revealed that he and Twist were forming an alliance to combat the evil regime. Now having purpose in the HWS, Phate set out to train for his Steel Cage Match with one goal in mind: victory at all costs. On January 21, 2008, Doctor Phate was victorious in HWS, winning his Steel Cage Triple Threat match against The Glasgow Mauler and Michael Morgan. Phate was then scheduled to wrestler HWS newcomer Suicide in a quarterfinal match for the Hardcore Wrestling Society World Championship Tournament. While all of this was going on in the ring there was a real power struggle going on outside of the rings of HWS. Chaz Leland, the owner of Hardcore Wrestling Society, decided to utilize his power to force Doctor Phate into a fragile situation: lose a match to the untested Suicide on purpose. The reason behind this? Phate needed to leave town for a few days and Leland refused to grant him the four days off. Phate felt he was being wronged, mainly due to the fact that Phate had booked and operated the company for a good portion of its existence as well as competed in the ring. The argument became volatile and Phate was issued his walking papers and banned from Hardcore Wrestling Society. Phate, feeling the other members of the Hardcore Wrestling Society roster needed to know the full details of the situation, disclosed the information to the HWS Superstars via the company's website to which he had administrator abilities. Leland, enraged, decided to make an attempt at discrediting Phate by posting defamatory comments about Phate on the SPEAR Wrestling Syndicate website. This action enraged Josh Eagles and Ciaran McConnell, the owner and C.V.O. of SPEAR, and heavily reprimanded Leland for this cowardly action. Chaz Leland tried to contact Dr. Phate on January 25, 2008 with a weak attempt at peace but Phate turned his weak attempt down and began focusing on helping Tower win the SWS Tag Team Championships from Leland and The Dan at January Mayhem in a Triple Threat Tag Match.


Rainbow Pro: February 9, 2008 - February 24, 2008

Phate would wrestle for Rainbow Pro on the same weekend as the February 9th Road to Revolution show, winning the Rainbow Pro Duos Championship with Evan the Great from the team of Skyfire and Blythe on February 9, 2008 at Monkey Wash then retaining those titles in a Scramble Tag contest the following day at Donkey Rinse against the teams of Los Pollos Excellente and Skyfire and Blythe. After much thought Doctor Phate let Rainbow Pro Owner Harold Balzac that February 24, 2008, at "Things To Do In Denver When You're Dead", he would be wrestling his final Rainbow Pro match due to his increasing workload and inability to travel to Mulberry on a regular basis. Phate and his partner Evan The Great would drop the Duos Championships on February 24, 2008 to the team of El Hijo del Pollo and Black Pollo V.


SPEAR Wrestling - February 23, 2008 - March 15, 2008 and the Subsequent Roster Meltdown

On February 23, 2008 Tower and "The Icon" Doctor Phate would defend their SWS Tag Team Championships in a grueling Tag Team Championship contest against the men responsible for giving them hell for weeks, James Lynch's New Church. Oblivion and Smoke were the duo across the ring from the Champions and, after a stiff, brutal, action-packed encounter, the Champions would hit their patented Insurance Claim double-strike maneuver on Smoke to secure victory and retain the Championships. Phate's next contest would be against Chaz Leland, Smoke, and Earl Swisher in a Block B Four-Way Elimination Match at the March 1, 2008 Road to Realization event. The winner of the contest would move on in SWS' Realize Your Dreams Tournament, the winner of the tournament becoming the new SWS North American Champion. On March 1, 2008 "The Icon" Doctor Phate would find himself in a Fatal Four-Way contest against Johnny Slayer (Chaz Leland), Earl Swisher, and Smoke. The match was part of the Block B bracket of the SWS Realize Your Dreams Tournament, the winner of the tourney becoming the new SWS North American Champion. Phate would win the match, dominating the contest and finishing off Smoke with a stiff School's Out for the victory. Phate would learn that his next opponent in the Realize Your Dreams Tournament om March 15, 2008 would be one-half of the SWS Tag Team Champions, and his own Tag Team partner, Tower! After suffering a very seedy loss to Tower, who was at the time Doctor Phate's tag partner and one-half of the SPEAR Wrestling Syndicate Tag Team Champions, on the March 15, 2008 Road to Realization show Phate decided to resign from SPEAR Wrestling due to politics. Phate leaving prompted a major part of the SPEAR roster to exit as well, leaving SPEAR Wrestling Syndicate in complete disarray. SPEAR Wrestling Syndicate would close about a month later. Phate would move on to sign with Grapple Arts World-Wide and the resurrected Las Vegas Pro Wrestling within 48 hours of his resignation.


Retirement

After some deliberation Doctor Phate decided to hang up his boots and announced his retirement on March 27, 2008. Disillusioned with the wrestling industry as a whole, Phate decided now was the time to say his goodbyes before he began to dislike the industry he had loved so much.

Un-Retirement

Phate would come out of retirement eventually, settling on a very limited touring schedule. He rejoined Rainbow Pro during the first week of May 2008. He would join the Action Packed Wrestling organization and the GWF on May 4, 2008.


Rainbow Pro: 57 Channels.....

Phate would return to active competition at Rainbow Pro's 57 Channels and Nothing On on May 4, 2008, taking the place of The Dan in a non-title encounter against the Wild Cherry Champion at the time, Jake Bishop. Phate was able to secure the victory with the aide of two of his patented Styles Clash Piledrivers in a row. The men embraced afterwards in a show of sportsmanship.


Action Packed Wrestling: May 2008

Phate would debut for the Action Packed Wrestling organization after an extensive hype campaign on the May 12, 2008 episode of APW's weekly Overdrive television show against Bryan J. Greatness. Phate would surprise Bryan J. Greatness with his patented Figure Four Leg Lock to score an impressive debut victory. On May 19, 2008 Phate would have his second APW contest, pulling out a victory over the debuting JZ with his world-infamous School's Out Stunner. Phate would learn soon after his win that on May 25, 2008 at APW's Mayhem pay-per-view he would have to face the two people he has defeated since arriving in APW, Bryan J. Greatness and JZ, is a Triple Threat Match. On May 25, 2008 Phate found himself in a Triple Threat Match on Action Packed Wrestling's fifth pay-per-view event, Mayhem. He would face JZ and Bryan J. Greatness, defeating them both with a pair of School's Out Stunners and extending his undefeated streak to three straight wins.


Rainbow Pro: Rainbow In The Dark

On May 18, 2008 Doctor Phate would compete on RAINBOW Pro's first evening event, Rainbow In The Dark, against the tenacious Jimmy Winner. Winner went after Phate's weak left knee but Phate was able to counter a Crucifix into his School's Out Stunner to gain a hard-fought victory.


Rainbow Pro: Dirty Life

On May 31, 2008 Phate participated in RAINBOW Pro's Dirty Life Tournament for the vacant Rainbow Pro Dream/Nightmare Championship. Phate would get all the way to the finals of the tournament, losing to Jewmaga in the finals. Later that evening Phate resigned from Rainbow Pro, deciding to focus all of his energies on the Action Packed Wrestling Test For The Best Tournament. The winner of said tourney would receive a guaranteed APW World Heavyweight Championship match against the current titleholder, the leader of the evil Church of Kaos stable known as Sergeant Kenny Lambardo, at the company's Shockwave pay-per-view event in August.


Action Packed Wrestling: June and July 2008

On June 2, 2008, Phate would put his APW undefeated streak on the line against another competitor with an undefeated streak of her own, Katrina "Arcadia" Olivetti, in the first round of the Action Packed Wrestling Test for the Best Tournament (see "Rainbow Pro: Dirty Life" above for more information). Phate would defeat Arcadia by shady means, using the ropes for leverage, to maintain his undefeated streak and move on to the semifinal round of the Tournament. On June 9, 2008, Phate would once again place his undefeated record on the line against the Church of Kaos' "Spirit" Tara Jacobs in a highly-anticipated contest that no one thought he could win because of the long undefeated singles streak of Jacobs. But Phate did win, hitting Tara with the School's Out after a physically grueling contest and unveiling his Lariat for the first time in a year to pick up the win. Phate would learn later that night that at the June 16, 2008 episode of Overdrive, the final Overdrive before the Test for the Best pay-per-view, he would be placed in a six-man tag team contest. His partners would be Victor Brander and Austin Daniels (Brander and Daniels being two of the four men still in Test for the Best along with Phate and the APW champion's brother Vin E. Lambardo), their opponents being newly recruited Church of Kaos member Tony Blackwell, John Green, and Sabur. On June 16, 2008 the team of Phate, Brander, and Daniels would defeat the team of Blackwell, Green, and Sabur, Phate unveiling a Shining Guillotine Choke and Green submitting to a combination Sharpshooter/Guillotine Choke/Cattle Mutilation from his three opponents. While the winning team made their way to the back, however, they were assaulted with a steel chair by Vin E. Lambardo, the fourth competitor in the Test for the Best Tournament. Phate would later find out his opponent in the Test for the Best semifinals on June 29, 2008 would be none other than Vin E. Lambardo.

On June 29, 2008, at the Test for the Best pay-per-view, Phate would defeat Vin E. Lambardo in the semifinals of the Test for the Best Tournament after an avalanche version of School's Out Forever. This earned him a trip to the tournament finals later that night where he defeated "The Ace" Austin Daniels with the School's Out Forever to become the first-ever Test for the Best Tournament Winner, earning a guaranteed main event APW Championship Match at August's Shockwave pay-per-view. Phate would go on to engage in a brutal war of words at the Overdrive television taping after Overdrive (the July 7, 2008 episode of the show)with APW Overdrive General Manager Matt Metal due to his calling Metal an old man at the Test for the Best pay-per-view. Metal would place himself in a match against Phate at the APW Apocalypse pay-per-view on July 27, 2008 and for the whole month of July Metal and Phate traded verbal barbs back and forth. While this occurred Phate began maintaining the company of a mysterious woman in a hooded sweatshirt with a very familiar voice. Phate also retained his undefeated streak against the likes of APW Superstar Twister before being assaulted during a six-man tag match on the July 21st edition of Overdrive by Matt Metal (the referee declared the match a 'no contest' as a melee ensued). Phate would go on to APW's Apocalypse pay-per-view on July 27, 2008 and defeat Matt Metal in a brutal Grudge Match. Later that night Phate would go on to defeat a battered and bloodied Kenny Lambardo in an impromptu Title Match set up by corrupt APW President Hurricane Jeff to become the APW World Heavyweight Champion.


Action Packed Wrestling: August 2008

"The Icon" Doctor Phate, now the APW Worlds Heavyweight Champion after forging a shaky and dangerous alliance with APW President Hurricane Jeff went into the eighth month of 2008 as arguably the most hated man in professional wrestling. On the August 4, 2008 edition of APW's Overdrive television show Phate made his first appearance since winning the belt as the special guiest of a Victory Celebration put together by Hurricane Jeff. During the celebration APW Overdrive General Manager Matt Metal came out to grant Kenny Lambardo his rematch for the APW World Title at August's Shockwave pay-per-view. He alos ran down to the ring with Kenny Lambardo to attack a defenseless Phate and Jeff, Phate declining the offer of security at rinside for his festivities. The duo of Metal and Lambardo were mere steps from the ring apron before a group of men dressed exactly like Doctor Phate attacked and subdued the men. Phate went on to tell Kenny that he would destroy him at Shockwave all thanks to the help of his mysterious female friend - who revealed herself to be none other than Diana Steel Lambardo, the supposedly deceased wife of Kenny Lambardo! Phate lost the APW World Heavyweight Championship at APW's Shockwave Pay-Per-View on August 31, 2008 to Twister and silently disappeared from APW television immediately after due to a multitude of nagging injuries.


Physical Appearance

"The Icon" Doctor Phate is of African descent. He has a caramel complexion and is heavy-set with a bit of a stomach. He usually has a five o'clock shadow and short-cropped dark brown hair.


In-Ring Attire

Doctor Phate's current in-ring attire consists of a black schoolgirl uniform skirt, an over-sized white dress shirt, and a red silk necktie. He sports black full elbow pads as well as athletic tape on both of his wrists and hands. He wears black knee pads, but due to the weakness of his left knee he wears an orthopedic knee brace on his left knee as well. For footwear he wears white Adidas high-top sneakers with red stripes.
