Biography

Childhood

Born on July 6, 1980 to William McManus and Claire Washington-McManus in Boston, Massachusettes after a seven hour labor. Logan is the oldest of the McManus children having two sisters, Caitlin McManus, born on March 26, 1982 and the youngest of the McManus clan, his sister Rori McManus born on January 5, 1985. Logan's parents divorced on November 22, 1988 with his mother taking sole custody of the children and his father William disappearing from their lives.

The McManus children didn't have the greatest of childhoods but they pulled together as a family in times of need. Claire dated several men that the young children didn't really approve and with a constant stream of new faces. The three children seemed to withdraw some from their mother. Working day and night shifts to help support them, Claire did the best she could in a rough and tumble neighborhood that was South Boston. Logan watched out for his two younger sisters constantly and more than once that saw him in a schoolyard fight sticking up for them and for his friends. As time went on Logan began to become more active in sports and though not the most popular of kids in school, he didn't have it quite as rough as some. Logan excelled in academics and was always near the top of his class. Though no matter how hard Logan tried it seemed the approval from their mother seemed to always fall on Caitlin the middle child. As such, Caitlin, always their mother's favorite seemed to have it all as Logan and Rori struggled with certain things. Always closer to Rori than Caitlin, Rori looked up to Logan when their father left home and that would come back to haunt the young man later on in life.

When he was sixteen years old, Logan was helping to repair the roof of his mother's small suburban home when he slipped and fell from the roof. While not breaking any bones from falling from the roof of the two story home, it did instill into Logan a small fear that he might not be around for his family. After that close call, he took a job to help support his sisters and ease the burden from his mother. At first his mother thought it would interfere with his after school activities so the young man took a third shift job for a meat processing plant where he worked near the docks in South Boston.

High School & Beyond

Logan was a star athlete in junior high and high school, routinely excelling at any sport he chose. From track and field, football, baseball, basketball and hockey, the young Irish American student was an exceptionally gifted athlete. Logan was easily his school's top athlete as well as one of the smartest in his class. Logan was a star running back for his high school, breaking several school records as well as helping to lead his high school team during his sophomore year to a state championship game. Logan would be taken out late in the second half with a slight concussion and watched from the sidelines as his team lost in a 28-24 final score. Logan recovered and during his junior year, he was itching to try something new and joined the wrestling team as well as playing shooting guard in the starting line up for the school basketball team. While Logan didn't break any records in basketball, it was said at the time he possessed an incredible 35" vertical leap. During baseball season Logan played shortstop and during the winter months saw Logan playing hockey, a sport he rather enjoyed for the physicality. Logan excelled on the ice as his school's starting center, which let to his breaking the school scoring record his junior year, followed by breaking his own record the following year. Logan was happy to become the school's all time leading scorer in hockey while finishing third in all time rushing yards and touch downs for the football team. But still, any approval he got from his mother was small to non-existent and only caused him to work harder.

While finishing high school, Logan worked in a meat packing plant on the late night shift to help his mother support him and his two sisters. During Logan's senior year, he began to get involved in his school's wrestling team, excelling in his weight class while on the weekends, Logan began to fall in with several more unsavory characters from South Boston, eventually winding up in a small time illegal fight club. Using the money he made there, Logan made sure his mother could provide for Rori and Caitlin till they were both eighteen and Logan graduated near the top of his class on June 6, 1998. Immediately, Logan traveled to Calgary, Alberta, Canada to train at Stu Hart's legendary wrestling school known as the Dungeon.

After spending a year training at the Dungeon, Logan found himself returning home to bail his youngest sister out of some trouble she had gotten into which saw the oldest of the McManus siblings forced to re-evaluate his own life. Receiving a call from his mother, Logan made the trek back to Boston to search for his missing sister who had run away with her then boyfriend. During the course of this, Logan found himself joining the United States Army on June 1, 1999 and was shipped to Fort Bragg. There he went through basic training and followed his basic training with applying to and excelling in Special Forces training where Logan eventually became a member of the elite United States Army Rangers. By the time Logan was 22, he had been involved in various operations in Africa, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, as well as having traveled to Russia, England and Mexico. Logan eventually found himself stationed on a small island just south of Japan for two years and after various stints with black bag operations with which he is unwilling to talk about, Logan found his childhood desire to be a professional wrestler rekindled after attending several All Japan Pro Wrestling matches.

Big Break

Before receiving his honorable discharge, Logan, while stationed near Tokyo, Japan, began training at the All Japan Dojo. During his time there, he met and befriended Italian-American wrestler Alexis Morningstar and also became friends with Kenta Kobayashi, the three training together often during the latter half of 2002 and into the early part of 2003 while Logan was still serving with the Special Forces unit Logan was assigned to in Japan. After receiving his discharge papers for his four years of military service, Logan rented a small apartment with Alexis Morningstar while they continued to train together. Forging a friendship, the two are good friends to this day and that friendship led to a highly successful tag team during the last part of Logan's run with NJPW before his jump to the BJW.

On April 4, 2003, Logan debuted as a masked wrestler for New Japan ProWrestling, becoming a perrenial jobber to put over many of the top stars in that promotion at the time when most westerners were looked down upon. Logan was determined though and continued to impress the owner at the time, Antonio Inoki, though he would never come out and say so until several years later. Slowly, Logan moved up the ranks through a lot of hard work and dedication, eventually losing the masked gimmick and competing under his own name and being paired with Alexis Morningstar. He joined Big Japan Pro Wrestling shortly after leaving New Japan and won his first and only title in the Japanese scene of professional wrestling.

Wrestling career

Minus the missing stats for BJW, Logan's current professional record is 68 wins and 37 losses. Our crack research team is hard at work trying to track down the remainder of his stats for BJW to give you the most complete Logan McManus match history on the 'net! So the record is accurate for total excluding BJW.

New Japan ProWrestling

Logan debuted as The Crimson Mask, jobbing to the likes of KENTA, Kenji Muto and more. Being a gaijin or foreigner in Japan was hard on the Boston native at first as he fought harder and trained harder to prove he belonged in the wrestling scene. After jobbing out for most of the top stars in NJPW. Logan dropped the masked gimmick and redebuted under his own name. Inoki paired the young wrestling sensation with another young American wrestler at the time who was impressing many people, Alexis Morningstar, and the two would tag on and off through several programs though never won a title together. This saw a close friendship forged as the two used the small earnings they made to rent an apartment together. Eventually, Logan was de-pushed in favor of some newer up and coming Japanese wrestlers and Logan went to management to see what he could do but in the end, the creative forces behind New Japan had nothing for the foreigner and Logan was given his released when he asked for it as he had been offered a much bigger contract with Big Japan ProWrestling.

Chaotic Extreme Wrestling

On May 3, 2004, Logan debuted for Chaotic Extreme Wrestling. He quickly became one of their most promising young stars, defeating nearly all the challengers set before him. While there he amassed quite the collection of accolades, such as a pinfall victory over "Dangerous" Jack Tulley in :38 seconds. He would go on to win the CEW North American Championship from Tulley that night and held the belt twice. Losing in a street fight match to Jack "Flash" Stevens then defeating Stevens the very next week to reclaim his title. Eventually, he became the CEW Heavyweight Champion while holding the CEW North American Championship belt at the same time even retaining the CEW Heavyweight Championship belt in a steel cage eight man scramble match by escaping the cage before one of his opponents escaped the cage at the CEW Hellions Unleashed supershow. Logan also went on to team with Mad Maxwell for a short lived tag team called the Mad Factory. The team held some promise, though this was mainly due to Logan's talent and skill as Maxwell couldn't overcome his personal demons and let them get the best of him. This lead to Max being fired from the company the very night that Logan and Maxwell won the CEW Tag Team Championships. CEW folded shortly there after making Logan the sole holder of every male championship belt in CEW. But with the close of the company it left Logan jobless in May 2005. Moving back to the Boston area, Logan took odd jobs before making small appearances for local independent federations in the greater Boston area.

Logan and Leyla.

Logan signed with a small independent wrestling company called Insane Entertainment. While the owners were from American and they toured the United States almost exclusively, IEO was packaged towards an Australian market featuring many top named stars from the U.S. Logan quickly made a name for himself in IEO, winning the IEO Fusion (formerly known as Insane) Championship after only his sixth match. Logan was one of the biggest stars in IEO and had what Dave Metzer reported as a five star match when he faced Batista at Anarchy 2 in a Three Stages of Hell Match. The first match, a hardcore match, followed by a steel cage match followed with an I Quit match if needed. Batista defeated Logan in the first match, before losing two straight falls to Logan as Logan was the first to escape from the cage and then nearly choked his opponent out to force him to say 'I Quit.' During this match, Logan suffered a broken forearm and wrestled with a cast for eight weeks. After several months and a decent title run, he was fired for several months before making a surprising comeback. During his time with IEO, Logan also took dates with another small traveling promotion called All Star Wrestling. He performed for several of their shows, eventually though, that company folded due to financial strains as well. Recently Logan returned but was injured and is waiting medical clearance but sources say he is to re-debut in the upcoming weeks.

Irish Providence

Over the years Logan has developed a style using some of the best techniques throughout the world. His extensive training in Canada, Japan and with the United States military has made Logan one of the most ferocious and feared in ring competitors. Combining the best aspects of Submission style wrestling with the versatility of several martial arts forms ranging from Krav Maga, Jeet Kun Do,and the US Army Combatives forms mainly. Logan is a skilled and highly trained killer who has killed in service to his country. An expert in hand to hand combat as well as being a weapons specialist has made Logan a legitimate terror in the ring for some. A true warrior, Logan is capable of ending a match in seconds if he chose, though he is more than capable of performing to the demands of any match and any match setting. Logan prefers to use his skills to weaken his opponent before going in for the submission finish, as it is a question of dominating the opponent by making them submit, which he truly prefers. Throughout his travels though, Logan has developed and created several moves to help him win his matches. Logan has been asked several times what he calls his hybrid style of wrestling and he answers the same way everytime and that's "Simply effective."

Celtic Knot

  • Exclusive to Logan McManus thanks to fellow superstar and some time Japanese travel companion Alexis Morningstar, this is a brutal submission with seemingly no escape. Starting with his opponent in a prone position, Logan will lock on the Figure Four Neck lock, with the opponent laying on their stomach, he will face their legs and cross one leg at the knee, with his legs locked around their neck and then wrenching back as hard as he can, twisting the opponent into a U-shape with a modified Cloverleaf submission. The move attacks the back, neck and thighs. This move is usually preceded by the Fallen Emerald.

Fallen Emerald

  • Exclusive to Logan McManus, who perfected this move after working with Alexis Morningstar in Japan. Starting with a powerbomb set up, doubling his opponent over into a bent position, Logan will then hoist them atop his shoulders and then tossing them up as if to powerbomb them down, Logan instead grasps their head, spinning them to drive them face first into the canvas mat in a devastating X-Factor like facebuster. This move is almost always followed by immediately applying the Celtic Knot for the win.

Cloverleaf Suplex & Submission

  • Exclusive to Logan McManus, who invented the move. Starts as a Texas Cloverleaf Leg-grapevine, where in, instead of turning the opponent onto his belly to complete the submission. Logan will power the opponent over his body in a modified Belly to Belly Suplex style maneuver. Only featuring Logan's belly pressed against his opponents legs as he takes them over, causing them to land on their face and chest. A variation sees Logan holding lighter opponents and after the suplex. Logan will roll through, keeping his hands locked in the grapevined position of his opponents legs to apply the Texas Cloverleaf submission.
