Before wrestling

Eraser started off as a fan of wrestling during his early years, following all the superstars on TV that could put on a match anyone could respect - coincidentally he was thought of as a bit of a "weirdo" by other in his social group, who followed whichever steroid-fuelled no-talent they were told to cheer for.

Deciding to show you didn't need to be 6'6" and 300 lbs to be a good wrestler, he joined his High School wrestling team as soon as he hit his 15th birthday, deciding to try something other than baseball and surfing, and showed a lot of potential. However, that potential was scuppered when he was at college, where he reacted to an opponent's constant stalling tactics with a (admittedly well-executed) DDT onto the gym floor during a meet with a rival school. So, he was banned from High School wrestling, but was a God in the eyes of his peers. And, he recalls, that was the first time he made a crowd mark out in his career, and he realised maybe he could get a crowd behind him if he tried the real thing.

His studies at an end, he decided to act upon that hunch by learning the basics at a local promoter's gym, as well as taking trips to gyms in North California and Mexico, before enrolling at Mike Del Mar's Academy (MDMA) in 1999.

He graduated in late 2000 and started looking for work. After a few false dawns in federations that lasted a handful of shows between them, he got his first shot in the Pacific Wrestling Association and was promoted to the IWF within six months, beginning his career in earnest with a series of impressive matches and began to develop into an all-round performer that grew more comfortable on the microphone and in front of crowds as he was accepted for his skills.


Career to date

UK Wrestling Federation (UKWF)

Eraser's first place of employment was the UK Wrestling Federation (UKWF), where he lost his very first match challenging for the Intercontinental Title in a ladder match, but won his second to lift the Hardcore Title. After those two shows, the federation folded due to lack of interest and a small roster.

Following this, Eraser bounced between federations for a while, none of which managed a show, such as New Era Wrestling (NEW) - until he finally found a home in Pacific Wrestling Association.

Pacific Wrestling Association (PWA)

Eraser made his PWA debut in late April and was quickly involved in a feud with Xcalibur and, once again, lost on his first night in the company, as well as his first PPV appearance in a Funeral Match with Xcal. He did, however, pick up enough victories to come to the attention of the PWA's mother league, the IWF, and was soon promoted to their ranks.

IWF

Eraser made his debut on the 9th July 2001 edition of Monday Night Storm, interfering in a match between Ivan Payne and Scab and, on the next week's edition, won a contract match against Ivan Payne to secure his spot in the league - the following week he also defeated Scab in a Hardcore Rules match to firmly announce he'd arrived.

Soon, Eraser was embroiled in a feud with Crow, losing at his IWF PPV debut, Guerilla Warfare, on 27 July and, on the 6th August MNS show, in a #1 Contender's match for the Brutal Desire Championship - as well as being on the losing side in a tag match w/Damian against Crow and Outcast a week later - only to rally to defeat Outcast, before lifting the Brutal Desire title in a Submissions match at Hardcore to Hell on 31 August. After this time, it was one way traffic: Eraser retaining the belt against Crow on the 10th September MNS and the Union Jakked PPV on 28 September (he and Chris Carnage also defeated Crow - renamed Rainrix by this time - and Ronnie Jameson in a tag team match in this period).

Eraser made his first strides up the roster on 1 October when he defeated Zoolight in a match for the No Fear Title, becoming a double champion in the process, although he dropped the Brutal Desire title to Rude Boy on the 15th October in a three-way also involving Joe Jobber, as well as being involved in the Holocaust Match, a gauntlet for the IWF Championship, at Halloween Holocaust.

At this time, Eraser was embroiled in a feud with the Riders on the Storm, an upstart faction consisting of Gutter Rat, John Storm, Chris Mask and, Rude Boy. Having already lost the Brutal Desire championship to Rude Boy, and traded victories with the group in a couple of tag matches, he also lost the No Fear Title to John Storm in a brutal Storm Death Cage Match at the oVerload PPV on 23 November, but swiftly regained it in a Stairway to Hell match at Seasons Beatings on 14 December.

As 2002 rolled in, Eraser participated in the New Year's Bash, a two-hour gauntlet with all belts on the line, that year taking place in the President's home town of Nuneaton, England. In this time he managed, in turns, to lose the No Fear championship, win the IWF Championship, and lose the IWF Championship. Following this, he lost a Number One contendership match to Outcast, despite having numerous victories in Brutal Desire and No Fear matches. Once again, he rallied from this (and being the last man eliminated in a Battle Royale) to defeat Maelgrim in an Anything Goes match at Knives Out on 25 January.

With this victory behind him, Eraser entered into a feud with the IWF Champion, Rude Boy, beginning on the 4th February edition of MNS when he rescued Rude Boy's valet, "Sexy" Steve Saunders, from a beatdown and, later that night, teaming with former rival John Storm to defeat Rude Boy and Chris Carnage in the show's Main Event. Following this, he won a Battle Royale on the 11th February, he and Sanders defeated Rude Boy and "Precious" Polly Presley on 18 February (with Sanders pinning Rude Boy), before lifting the title at FIASCO! on 22 February. However, Rude Boy wasn't finished, defeating Eraser in a non-title Xtreme Rules match on 11 March and, the following week - now going by the name "Superstar" Daniel Sanders - brought in "Glamourous" Grant Keaton and Mindy Malice. It wouldn't work, as Eraser retained the title at Ultrabash II in a three-way ladder match, also involving 4Score, on 22 March. With the hard part out of the way, he conspired to lose the title to Chris Carnage on the 8th April MNS. At this point, Eraser decided he needed to get organised, so hired Chasey Campbell as his PA to take care of the business side of his career (a position she retains to this day), while he took care of the wrestling side - at this time he had an entourage of Chasey, Steve Sanders and his own personal ICWF cameraman, Camera Al. Yet the organisation paid off with a victory over Daniel Sanders the next week, he earned a place in the Main Event of Beyond the Sight of Sanity on 4 May against Sanders, Carnage and Chris Mask, and regained the title by pinning Chris Mask, while Sanders was laid out by his accomplices.

Following this, the IWF went on a hiatus, not returning until 12 August 2002, with Eraser wrestling in the Main Event against Chris Mask, although the match was thrown out after interference from 4Score and John Storm. Eraser lost the IWF title for a second time to Chris Mask at the Hardcore to Hell PPV on 6 September, which was also his final appearance with the company - he was rested with a knee injury for the 16th September show, which transpired to be the last in IWF history due to financial issues - the PWA also folded at this time.

Intense Championship Wrestling Federation (ICWF)

After the collapse of the IWF, Eraser took some time out to heal up from various injuries he'd incurred in his IWF run, as well as to retrain and learn new things for his comeback. That came in February 2003, when he was offered a contract with the ICWF.

At first he did show some signs of ring rust, which wasn't helped as he was targeted by Sean Stone and Thomas Swinger in separate hazing-related incidents, and was roughed up in the ring. Annoyed at this treatment, he looked to improve by taking bookings in a separate promotion at the same time, to get back on track.

Lethal Championship Wrestling: Mercury

Eraser made his LCW: Mercury debut in March, and soon found himself disillusioned with his stint, stemming from an incident on the 30th May episode of Fusion, where he was supposed to have a ladder match for the North American title vs. Jin Akujin, but at the last second it was switched to a regular one-on-one match, which went to a time-limit draw. His issue was with LCW: Mercury insisting that, all along, it was a regular match, which he found both unprofessional and an insult to his intelligence, as well as to the fans'.

The second grievance stemmed from a match with then-world champion Dean Wallace on the 7th June episode of Fusion, which stemmed from Eraser not backing down from the constant threats and assumed superiority of Wallace. Eraser hung with Wallace in the match, until Wallace blasted him with a chair to the face to walk out secure in his manliness. Things came to a head at the Resurrection PPV on September 23, where Wallace no-sold all of Eraser's offence during the match.

Eraser remained on the roster until 2004, before (depending on who you ask) either: a.) Being fired. b.) Quitting.

However, Eraser's stint was the longest lasting of the 2003/4 intake, with most people leaving after two or three shows, which was usually a combination of the random schedule (in a year there were less than 15 shows in total), and the insistence that, despite a roster of less than a dozen wrestlers, everyone had to be there for two years before getting a shot at the big time. His booking literally involved him jobbing to everyone who'd been there longer than him, and rolling over anyone that had been there for a shorter time.

The last straw was when Eraser was disciplined for no-selling a knee injury he was supposed to have received in a post-macth beatdown by Jin Akujin and Vincent Picasso, although nobody told him he was supposed to be selling one and - as Eraser asked - how was he supposed to get over with the crowd if he was constantly getting beaten down after the opening match, and receiving an injury in the process, yet never once was allowed to fight back. At this point, he wanted out so used the upcoming cage match with Akujin for the title to state he didn't want the title, and made a series of shoot comments about Akujin, Merc President Jeffrey Beaumont, the federation in general, their talent relations policy and his treatment. After the match, Beamont makes out he was fired, but Eraser maintains he quit - his promos were both a resignation and a "fuck you" to all involved.

His commitments to LCW: Mercury over, he felt very relieved indeed. He used the payoff to purchase the tapes of his IWF stint, and keeps them in his personal library.

On the 20th December 2007 edition of ICWF Thursday Night Special, Eraser used the opportunity to make light of Mercury shutting down six months prior.

Meanwhile, in the ICWF...

As his run in LCW: Mercury was making his head hurt with the banality of it all, he started to climb the ladder in the ICWF, soon winning the Rookie Rumble and, soon after, capturing the TV Title from Billy "The Sledgehammer" Steel, and having a string of successful defences of the title, dubbing himself "The Definitive TV Champion" in the process.

His progress was slow and steady, partly due to getting back to 100% ring readiness, partly balancing his commitments with LCW: Mercuury, as well as dealing wiuth the pressures of being unhappy in that federation affecting his work, but he was making up ground by 2004, where he captured the Intercontinental title for the first time, from Suicide, and capturing the Cruiserweight title in the Match of the Year winner in a fatal four way also involving V4andal, Devon King and The Traveller. During this time he also debuted his second persona, Phantasm, a tribute to Keiji Mutoh/The Great Muta or Owen Hart/The Blue Blazer, although it was a small role he fulfilled on half a dozen or so shows, and no more. Suffice to say it was about as over as a sunken submarine.

In 2005 he picked up the Intercontinental title on two separate occasions, lost and regained the Cruiserweight title (which was retired after his second victory), and was accepted into legendary ICWF stable The Empire, along with DarkWind and Rudnick & Gruber. At this time, he also won the Mother Of All Tag Team Tournaments with long-time rival, "Sadistic Intensity" Damian Payne, although soon he captured the titles in a singles match to share with his stablemate DarkWind. Later that year, as The Empire left, he founded his own group: Generation XXX, featuring Steve Bradley and RJ Souza in the first incarnation, and later Seth Brower, Kyle Phillips and Souza.

2006 started with a disappointment, as he was eliminated in the first round of the RoughKut Invitational (which doesn't matter, really, as they were so organised they never finished the tournament that year) but soon the year saw him step up even further, winning the Intercontinental title for a fourth time, the Asia-Pacific title, and being the runner-up in the Mother Of All Tournaments to Ground Zero. Not to be outdone, he challenged Ground Zero to a title match and, at Fallout that September, defeated Zero for the title in a three falls match, winning the opening Pure Wrestling match, losing the second Submissions match, and finally triumphing in the final Inferno match to hold the title up in front of the Times Square crowd after an hour's wrestling. He retained the title against Hootie Blackdog and Frostbite in Monday Night Dy-no-mite matches and in Satan's Cell at Six Feet Under while the ICWF was going through administrative difficulties and presidential changes. With the ICWF up and running, he lost the title at Holiday Horrors in the Intense Rumble to stabelmate Brower.

2007 came along with him and Brower working together, until Brower turned on him following his retention in an Empire Rules cage matchat VD14. Swearing revenge and the title in the process, Eraser vowed to win the 2007 MOAT, only to be cost his place when Brower interfered in his match with Frostbite. Although he captured the Intercontinental title for a record-equalling fifth time from Lance Perfection at Rain of Terror, he said he would gladly trade in the title like a gambling chip to get at Brower and the World Title, as Brower was hoping he'd get bogged down defending it - although, as Brower lost the World Title to Frostbite at Birthday Bash XI (while Eraser lost the Intercontinental title, following interference by Alex Dane), the status of their feud is in question.

Eraser dusted himself off soon after this, defeating Adam Flash to earn a place in Satan's Cell at Six Feet Under, and has been on a hot winning streak since: defeating Alex Dane, RJ Souza and KUMA, as well as dismantling Damian Payne in a three-way for the Intercontinental title, albeit Jack Venus retained (the latter was supposed to be against "The Street Samurai" Spade, but he was released from his ICWF contract), in order to build momentum for Satan's Cell, as well as have recent experience against numerous styles and numerous backstories in order to give him an edge.

At Six Feet Under, Eraser went itno Satan's Cell intent on lifting the ICWF title, and outlasted defending champion Frostbite, Adam Northstar, KUMA and Jack Venus to face off with Spooky Doom, but the match did not have a decisive finish - as the show went off air, both Eraser and Spooky were laid out on the canvas, having both nearly killed themselves falling from the top of the cell, with the returning Dexter Payne watching.

This led to a war of words between Eraser and Spooky Doom about who the rightful ICWF CHampion was, with Frostbite also declaring himself the rightful champion as the title was held up. It all came to an end at Holiday Horrors, firstly in a challenge match where the team of Spooky and Adam Northstar won Eraser's special challenge in a three-way tag match also involving Frostbite and Dexter Payne and Eraser tagging with Adam Flash. And then came the Intense Rumble, with the winner at the end of the double-elimination contest being crowned new champion. Eraser was the last man eliminated when the recently eliminated (by Eraser) Frostbite interfered, allowing Spooky to win the match, only for him to cash in his rematch clause to lift the title. Incensed, Eraser summoned up what little energy he had left to re-enter and play Frostbite at his own game, cashing in the rematch clause he never got to use and, after a short but intense match, pinned Frostbite to lift the ICWF Championship for a second time.

A month later, on the second editiotion of Monday Night Dy-No-Mite of 2008, a Main Event pitting Eraser and Intercontinental Champion Jack Venus against the Tag Team Champions The Fugitives led to Eraser becoming a double champion, holding the World and one half of the Tag Team titles. Satan's Disciples soon took an interest in the titles and, during a singles match between Eraser and Doomsday, Eraser received a concussion due to Doomsday's actions. Fit enough to return, Eraser got a measure of revenge, but ultimately ended up losing the titles.

Yet things soon picked up when Eraser faced new ICWF Champion Adam Northstar in a non-title match, and Eraser picked up the win and, from that moment onwards, was focused towards regaining the title - a claim he further backed up when pinning Northstar a second time in a tag match (along with Hades, against the TAKE team of Northstar and Tyler Durden). At this time, Eraser also began to dub the ICWF tour of the West Coast his "Homecoming", especially as the final two shows were in his hometown of San Diego, followed by a show in Portland, Oregon - the birthplace of his career. During the tour, he lost out in a tournament to crown a new Intercontinental champion - a tournament he seemed almost insulted to be a part of, given his desire to win the ICWF Championship - but gained Number One COntender status in front of his home crowd in the match voted 2008 MOTY against Frostbite, followed by a further boost of momentum when he beat Dexter Payne in Portland. Yet at Six Feet Under, fate had a different plan, and Spooky Doom won the title in a SFU Cage match, snatching the title suspended from the top of a cage from Eraser's grasp.

After this, Eraser took every opportunity to state Doom was a fluke champion at best, given he only own the title in matches that required gravity to win instead of pinfalls or submissions, going so far as having his entrance reading like campaign ads with negative comments about Doom's championship, and giving speeches before his matches under the banner of "Champ we need" - yet at Holiday Horrors fate again decided to take the piss when the match was thrown out following interference from RJ Souza and Adam Northstar, and the title was held up. Eraser is one of the six team captains ahead of VD14, looking to qualify for Satan's Cell. Heading into VD14, he has said he needs to exorcise three demons from the ICWF: Souza, Doom and Northstar, the first for ruining a title match, the others for ruining the title itself.

Appearance

For his career, Eraser has always looked more like a surf bum than a professional wrestler in the ring.

He has always worn long shorts in the ring, be it black denims in UKWF, PWA and IWF, or specifically tailored ones in the ICWF (a list can be found on his personal Myspace). At Birthday Bash XI, he even got iunto the spirit (no doubt encouraged by using Anarchy in the UK as part of his entrance theme) by wearing tartan bondage shorts he purchased in Camden that week.

Earlier in his career, in UKWF and PWA, he also wore a white wifebeater as part of his attire, but a few trips to the gym later and he ditched it to show off his physique and collection of tattoos, only wearing a t-shirt or workshirt to the ring and dumping it out of the ring before the bell. These days, he will often wear a Padres or Chargers jersey to the ring, although his choice of attire will change week to week. He will also occasionally pay tribute in his choice of t-shirt, be it to Eddie Guerrero or The Ramones, for example.

The only significant change is his choice of footwear - until 2005, he wore a pair of skate shoes or trainers to the ring, but since then he has worn kickpads to help with his Strong Style-influenced array of kicks to an opponent, as well as to protect his ankles, considering the array of suplexes he adopts.
